I recently found these curious pods on a vine and am still not sure what they are.

It's been a curious week and I'm glad to be heading into the weekend.

The Light

I am obsessed with light. The more I get into my photography and the more photos I see the more I can't stop noticing "the light". We have quite a few reflective buildings in Melbourne and they often catch the light in the most amazing ways. I was so glad to have my camera with me when I saw this. Just beautiful.

Friday Reflections

So I started the week in Byron Bay and have ended it back home in Melbourne but boy a week can really change your life. A lot of things have happened this week and I've got to serious thinking to do over the weekend. This is one of those weeks that can change your life.

Sculpture Garden

This is a photo I didn't get a chance to share from my trip to the Heide Modern Art Gallery and Scultpure Garden. I love the contrast of the sculpture against the sky.

Sketchbook Project

I read about the Sketchbook Project on Renee's blog and after looking into it I became really inspired and so have signed up to participate. My chosen topic is "First Thing In The Morning, Last Thing At Night". This will be one of my morning images, taken on my recent holiday.

One thing I love about winter in Australia is when the wattle comes out. It's such a lovely bright colour amidst the grey days.

This week has flown by, I'm not quite sure where it went. The weekend isn't looking much quieter but by the end of next week I'll be heading off on holidays. I can't wait.

The photo of those apples just drew me in.
