The Scavenger Hunt

One of my photography groups ran a photographic Scavenger Hunt, one where you didn’t really need to leave the house. Random objects that appear in most people’s houses and a few a bit rarer. Here are just a few of my shots…but not all. I also took a few on my phone. I guess it…

Autumn Outings – Coombes Cottage

Of course, this was visited before the CV lockdown, but I am now just catching up on editing and posting. This is possibly our last outing for a while, so glad we managed to get out while we could. I recently went with a friend to visit Coombes Cottage, own by the world-famous opera singer…

Summer Outings – Ikebana flower arranging

I recently attended a class with Desley to learn how to create Ikebana flower arranging. I knew it was quite regimented and very beautiful, but I guess I didn’t realise just how regimented it was. Desley arrived mid-morning and we had a lovely 45-minute drive to Dromana, which gave us a chance to catch up. We…

Share your world – 22nd January 2020

Time for another Share Your World QUESTIONS: Where do you get your news? Mostly from Facebook, sounds bad I know, but if it’s important people are usually talking about it! But then sometimes it can become a bit too much and I need to switch off from that too. I rarely watch the news as it…

Summer Outings – Harmers Haven

We were invited by another photography group for the first sunset shoot of the year at Harmer’s Haven in South Gippsland (far from the fires in East Gippsland). It was a glorious evening, high cloud, warm temps and light winds. It was a pretty sunset amongst the rocks, but not spectacular. Still, it was lovely…

Summer Outings – Blue Lotus Water Gardens

A new year and some trips to old places not seen for a while, and some never before. We escaped the Melbourne heat and smoke (from all the bushfire blowing our way) and went to Yarra Junction in the Yarra Valley to visit the Blue Lotus Water Gardens , such a magical place to visit as…

Spring Outings – Grantville Jetty at sunset

Grantville is about 103km from Melbourne CBD, about 60kms from my house on the way to Kilkunda and Phillip Island. I have not stopped at this jetty before, but have driven through Grantville many times on the way to and from other locations. I had seen some images take by other photographers for this location…

Spring Outings- Cloude Hill Gardens

Some days the weather is just too good to spend inside working, and fresh air and exercise is good for us, so after I had spent most of a recent workday busy on the PC and in the studio, I could not bear it any longer and just had to get out. Moth was home…

Spring Outings – European Christmas Cookie Class

I had been looking for something fun to do with some friends and students for an end of the year get together, a change from the usual Sunday brunch and champagne or a ‘play-date’ in the studio. Something fun and inclusive of photographers and non-photographers alike. I came across this European Christmas Cookie class by…

Spring Outings – Bruno’s Sculpture Gardens

I have been to Bruno’s in Marysville a few times, this is a remarkable attraction to visit. Almost completely devasted in the 2009 bushfires, Bruno has been slowly but surely putting things back how they were. So it was wonderful when we visited here recently with a photography friend to see so many new pieces.…
