Kiss & Pop Photo Shoot

Last night I did a photo shoot with a fantastic burlesque duo called Kiss & Pop. It was so much fun. This is one of the out takes.

Macro Friday - Lime

Macro Friday time. These limes are growing in our backyard which is pretty exciting. I was glad to be able to photograph them as the sun was dropping in the sky, making the light shine through.

Tea Time

Is there anything better than a good cup of tea in your favourite mug? My Mum gave me this mug for Christmas and it has quickly become my favourite. Funny how a great mug makes an ordinary cup of tea that much better.

Macro Friday - Enjoying The Rain

I found this gorgeous insect in my front garden. I was fascinated by the raindrops on the leaves in the sunshine when this little bug landed on a nearby leaf. I'm so glad I managed to photograph it enjoying the rain.

Check out other Macro Friday photos here.

River Path

I had a lovely day today. This morning I did a photoshoot with a friend's little boy, Hugo. We went to a park by the river and played and then went for a walk. Such a relaxing way to spend the day and Hugo was a delight to photograph.

Old & New

Old and new, side by side. I think it's important to keep as many of our old buildings as we can. Not to stop progress, but to remind us of where we've come from.

Love

Love one another and you will be happy. It's as simple and as difficult as that.

Macro Friday - ish

I didn't really get a chance to take a Macro pic today so this is as close as it got. A magazine and a glass of water while waiting for my breakfast and coffee to arrive at one of my favourite cafes. A lovely relaxing Friday morning.

Tramway

Tonight was the opening night of my friend's pub. It was a fabulous night and the pub is awesome - they've done a terrific job of renovating. I can highly recommend calling in for a beer if you're in North Fitzroy.

Reflection

I'm currently taking the Mondo Beyondo on-line course which is fantastic, although I had found myself falling behind quite a bit. Over the weekend, being away, I had the chance to catch up a bit, including writing my Mondo Beyondo list. It's really got me thinking and feeling quite reflective, especially around the idea of what does my perfect life look like? It can be a difficult question to answer but I'm enjoying the process.

Phillip Island

The plan was to go camping this weekend but with the forecast being for rain ALL weekend we decided to give it a miss. So instead we've headed to the beach which despite the grey clouds is lovely. I feel so much more relaxed already and have managed a swim and walks on the beach, rain or no.

Macro Friday - Rain Drop

It's Macro Friday and finally I have some time to update the blog and take photos. I've headed out of town for the weekend and am already feeling relaxed. I'm looking forward to some quiet time to recharge and take stock of what was an amazingly crazy (but great) week last week.

Cloud Explosion

The clouds at sunset last night were incredible. I was working but managed to grab my camera to make a few quick shots. It was like there was an explosion in the sky - just beautiful.

Luminescent Reflections

I walk past this pond at least a couple of times a week and the light on the pond always changes. Today the bright green of the tree was amazing, reflected in the pool and luckily I had my camera with me.
