In the studio – a little dark and moody

I truly do love a little dark and moody, and while I sometimes seem to jump around in genres, I inevitably end up back with what I love…dark and moody. I recently saw a photo by another photographer I admire who had these old tin cans for vessels or vases and I thought it was…

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…

Mondays Musings

My holidays are finished and this morning I am back at work (well my part-time job anyway). We had a most relaxing break, just staying at home. We had a cleanup and declutter around the house. Sadly while we stayed home, many parts of Australia are burning. Above are photos I took on Kangaroo Island,…
