Bridge and river thoughts


^ Broken egg. I found it already broken on the path during the photoshoot on Sunday.

Tree Painting

^ I took this out the window of the car whilst we were moving. It's of the trees on the way home. I think it looks like a painting.

Lake ~ flowers, bees and weeds

^ We went to the lake in L. It is pretty at this time of year. Flowers and weeds everywhere.
The bee was fun to photograph, he kept on flying to another flower just as I was about to take a photo. I had to follow him with my camera ready.

Pretty lavender

^ It's pretty, purple and lavender.

Two paths

^ The river almost flooding the path. We've had so much rain here lately. The river is swollen with water rushing in rapids down the river. I'm sure that the river would have been higher than this. I liked the two paths crossing.

white snow flowers - onion weed

^ Pretty wild flowers


^ These lilies grow wild around where we live. We picked a few to brighten up our house.
Taken with my 'new' Canon Powershot SX120 IS. I got it on Friday. Very exciting. It has amazing features for a small camera. Will post specs later. Enjoy the beauty of these wild lilies.

Exploration of self photoshoot

I took a whole series of photos in January this year. I had an idea of working with lace and the body. Here are some of my favourites.

Working lace turned out to be amazing. The effects were awesome!

I really like incorporating texture into my photographs - hiding things but still being able to see it. Suggesting a hint of something, not quite there.

more photos from weekend

Spring is here! It's a beautiful time of year. Everything is new, fresh and alive. The world is waking up from it's winter sleep and new life is everywhere. I love the pink leaves on the tree. I have seen them every spring since we lived here. I think they are so beautiful and different.

Wow! I'm back....what a journey!

Apologies for disappearing for so long. I've been through alot lately. This is one of my latest photos. I took a whole heap over the weekend which was lots of fun! This was on Fri arvo from my driveway as the sun was setting.
