Friday’s Flowers

My hubby has taken on the chore of food shopping. We used to do it together, but current restrictions forbids two people from the same house shopping together. I can’t push a full trolley and I struggle to lift full shopping bags…so he goes. I do all the cooking and cleaning, I also buy the…

Monday’s Musings

Another week down, apparently the lock down we are still living under is longer than just about anywhere else in the world, it may not be quite as harsh as some lock downs, but it is long and continuing. But…it is working at least in part. Our daily figures are now getting below 50 a…

In the studio – Gerberas

There is nothing is as bright and cheerful as gerberas, is there? Possibly Daisies or Cosmos, but I cannot get either of them at the moment. But I did recently pick up these bright orange ones! So I spent some time playing with them in the studio… Just popped them on my chippy table in…

Mondays Musings

Well that completes one week of our new enforced six week lock down for Melbourne again. Apart from having to cancel a studio shoot (or two), a few workshops and move a lunch with the girls online, it was same old same old here. I think I am becoming a hermit these days. Our numbers…

More Pink Roses

I really did try to make the most of my pretty pink roses, I shot them several times, over several days. Even if initially my camera was only on a tripod, it was great to be shooting and editing again. I received these from a friend, who had borrowed some studio equipment, isn’t that nice…
