Share Your World – 27th March 2018

Another week, another set of question from Cee, don’t forget to pop on over to Cee’s blog to see what else is happening

Powell-Julie_Jess_Red Rabbit-8What is your favourite colour of hair? You can name your hair colour or a colour that you just like. I have always had a fondness for red hair, not the bright carrot red but the rich deep almost auburn red. Personally, I have flat mouse brown, rather boring. I have kept it natural the last year or so to rest it, but I frequently have at least highlights. I have had deep red before, but it never seems to last 😦


List at least 5 things that you are good at. Can I say blogging? Lots of people seem to enjoy it and I have made so many good friends. Cooking, I sometimes like to cook, and my friends and family tell me I am quite good. Writing (?) not so sure about this one. I am never going to write a whole novel, but people tell me they really like my short stories, I should try to write more. I am very good at Photoshop, and I am very good at photography, and I may sound a little self-assured, but when I mix my photography and my photoshop – I think I’m pretty bloody brilliant – modest huh? 🙂

What is your favourite animal or type of animal? (pets, dolphins, stuffed, wild cats, etc) I am an animal lover, what can I say. I have two cats, two dogs and two turtles at home. I do enjoy the wild birds that come to visit us, especially the wattlebirds, the rosellas and lorikeets. I adore Australia’s weird and wacky animals and think it is fantastic that we have stuff not natively found anywhere in the world (a bit like the people lol). My personal favourite would have to be Elephants, I can’t even tell you why. Have you ever stood up close to an elephant? Have you ever looked deep into their eyes? Have you ever scratched behind the ears of a baby elephant? I have and they are majestic and peaceful and they speak to my soul. Now I just got all weird huh?

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. I so often feel like I am repeating myself, but what can I say I love my life. I get to wake up most morning and create art, or write about art, or help make someone feel beautiful. I love taking photographs and creating amazing images. I love to travel and I get to do so much of it. I have an amazing Husband and two wonderful daughters. Life is good. Granted there are a few bits in it that suck occasionally, but they make the good moments all the sweeter.

I did two fun photoshoots last week. I am about to have another super long weekend, I am off on another long adventure in a couple of weeks and it’s Autumn. The leaves are starting to change colour and we have had two cold mornings this week, cold enough to leave dew on car windows. I hope it’s a long Autumn, I think I have decided that it must be my favourite time of year. The weather is pleasant and usually not too hot, the nights are cooler and make it easier to sleep. More often than not the best sunrise and sunsets are in Autumn, the skies are blue and the clouds are fluffy, and there is the occasional thunderstorm.

I hope you all have an amazing week…

P.S. I think I am finally over my cold this morning…maybe that’s why the world seems a bit brighter? 🙂
