    Week 6 – Love

    This week was all about love. I decided that to fit with my theme I was going to give myself so love. In the form of a break. This past year I have worked two jobs and studied for my masters degree. Let me tell you I am tired. So tired. I finally got some full-time work at a place I love about a month ago and so for the first time in years I have weekends again. I didn’t know I could miss weekends so much. It took me a month to actually have one all to myself though. And it was glorious. I slept in to a much…

    Week 3 & 4

    if you’ve been following along at home you may have noticed my problem. Noticed it yet? How about now? Nope? Damn! I should have left it alone. Well my problem is that I came up with my idea for my 52 Week 1 Word challenge in the second week of January and then didn’t post it until the third week inadvertently putting myself a week behind before I had even started. Whoops! So this week is a catch up week not only because I got super busy and didn’t have the time to post on Wednesday but also because I am posting two weeks in one Shadow for week 3…

    52 Week 1 word Photography Challenge

    So I have wanted to do a 52 week photography challenge for maybe 10 years. I have started a lot of them some at New Years some just randomly and once in a fit of enthusiasm I even thought I was capable of a 365 day photo challenge (spoiler: I was not). I am not sure if this time will be different because its’ a challenge I have designed for myself or if it will be different because I have the blog and an instagram to post on, or if it will be different because I am less afraid of no one and everyone seeing what I post. I don’t…

    2020 Day 1

    At the minute So I have been thinking a lot about a lot lately. Which is pretty normal for me. I overthink. I love taking photographs, I love learning about photography and photographers, I love art and artists and I am learning to love editing my photographs.  For a while now my blog has just existed as a place to post my photos that is easier to see than instagram. Somewhere I can post more pictures, bigger pictures but not necessarily better pictures.  Some of the photos I love the most are quick snaps I’ve taken with my phone. And some I’ve spent hours with fussing over a branch or…

    The Begonia House

    Sometimes life throws everything at you all at once and with only two hands most of it’s hitting you in the face. Thats what my last week has felt like. Smack after smack after smack in the face. I have felt stressed and overwhelmed with the amount of stuff sitting in my brain space. All I needed as some time to myself and to do something I love. Enter the Begonia House in Machattie Park Bathurst. I love it. Every year from about February to April extending a bit into May usually. The Begonia House is open. A house full of flowers waiting for me to look at, enjoy, photograph…

    Lily

    This post is about Lily. My cat. I found Lily when I was 18. My cat before Lily, Midas had died really suddenly about 5 or 6 months before and it really shook me up. I was so upset over her death I didn’t want to be near other animals basically at all and even our other cat her Mum Rockey and our dog Jilly made me sad to be around. Cut to my little brother who over his life time has had a multitude of different pets including mice, rats lizards, fish, crabs and birds, wanting to go to the pet store and get a new bird with his…

    Happy Easter

    It’s been months actual months since i’ve even thought about writing. Somehow this blog which is so important to me always gets pushed to the bottom of my to do list and the only person who suffers for it is me. I have been working on my photography. I have a stack of photos to edit and a stack that I have edited. But then it comes to writing and I get shy. I worry about what to write and whether anyone actually reads my blog and if they do what do they think and I put it off for another day and another until it’s been months. So I…
