    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…

    Week 1 & 2

    2 weeks into this challenge an already I forget to complete part of it. As in the post to the blog part of it. Both weeks 1 and 2 I have made sure to post to Instagram and both weeks I forget to post to the Blog. What can I say Life happens, better late than never, here are my week 1 and Week 2 Photographs for my challenge What can I say about week 1. Well if you’ve read the Instagram caption you know week 1 was hard for me. I take selfies but I rarely post them. Why? A. I don’t think the world needs to see my…

    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…

    Snaps

    So I love my phone. A lot. I mean A Lot, A LOT. This means I understandably take a lot, probably most of my photos on my phone. I love my camera but its big and heavy and I tend to take it with specifically rather than generally. My phone on the other hand is always with me. I don’t think its been further than 1 metre away from me in at least 5 years. So lots of photos. I’m not going to share tham all coz that would be weird and a long long long post. But I am going to share some of my favourites mostly from the…

    Autumn

    I love Autumn, its probably my favourite season, and yes I am aware that I am telling you about Autumn in September. Which for any northern hemisphere readers is fine but for those of us in the southern hemisphere is a bit weird. I’m telling you because I want to share the photos I took during Autumn because I love them but didn’t post them because frankly I was sick for most of the season. I hope you enjoy them.

    The Egyptian Exhibit

    I love History. If the title of the blog hadn’t clued you into that fact then I wasn’t being as obvious as I thought I was.  All through school my favourite subject was always history and except for a brief flirtation with the idea of becoming a fashion designer, it didn’t happen because I can only sew in a straight line. I always wanted to study history and become a historian. My love of books and reading about history eventually led me to my actual profession which I love as a Librarian. And yes the line from The Mummy is my absolute favourite. Evelyn ” Look, I … I may…

    Sydney Chinese Gardens

    Continuing with my theme this week of looking back through my photos I give you the Sydney Chinese Gardens. If you’ve never been and are in Sydney near Darling Harbour I would highly recommend a visit.  I don’t live in Sydney never have but I have always lived in day trip distance. In that I can easily visit and return home in the course of a day so I visit as often as I can not as often as I like. When I was a kid and we would visit Sydney for some event or holiday we would almost always end up in and around the harbour and almost every…
