i have been missing for a while…needed a break! Since I was last on here, a lot of things have happened, so I thought I would you fill you in. As those of you who follwed me on my 365 project know, I had a miscarriage in 2012 and I lost my way for a little while, hence me stoping my posts on here. I needed time out.
After an incredible, much needed holiday in Fiji, I was able to recharge my batteries and find myself again. On Chrsitmas Day 2012, my partner of 7 and a half years proposed to me, so I am now engaged!
I am also very pleased to announce that I am expecting again!
Oh and some more good news….I am going to have my first solo exhibition, which will be for 3 months in Sydney!
I hope all of my followers are keeping well. I plan on adding some new photographs here shortly. X
Allow me to Introduce
Today, something rather exciting happened, I bought myself a scooter, to get me from a to b, to enable me to take more photographs, to give me independence.
I am incredibly happy.
I have called her Bella, as she is an Italian beauty.
With such a busy day and with even more rain, I am afraid this is the best photograph I could take for today. It’s an offering from one of our trees and they (the offerings) are at the moment, covering our driveway, which is driving my partner insane because as soon as he sweeps them up, they start falling again, so it’s a never ending job. it doesn’t help that cockatoos land in the tree, eat part of the seeds and then just drop them. I find it rather amusing, because, cooking/cleaning is a never ending job too….welcome to my world
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
The Perfect Start to a New Week
I mentioned over the weekend, how we went to view a property – that we’ve had our eyes on…well….we’ve put an offer in! Scary bananas!! Fingers crossed they’re going to accept it and we don’t get guzumped.
It will mean saying farewell to living in Sydney, however, we’ll both still work in Sydney and will commute – about an hour every day – or just over that. At the moment, it takes me 2 hours to get home usually – commuting and that’s living in and working in Sydney, so it should be a really positive move for us and we will finally have somewhere here that we can call our own. I have to keep telling myself, that if it doesn’t happen, then it’s just not meant to be and that there is somewhere else better out there. Everything happens for a reason and all that jazz.
What a rollercoaster of a year this has been so far. I am so glad that I have been documenting it in this project – it’s a year of my life that I will never forget and I like to think that I have made some good friends via this blog – people who have decided to follow my journey – my photography.
This photo was taken this morning, again before I started my journey to work. It was the perfect start to the week. Last week was awful, in so many ways – I am determined to make this week a good one and I hope those who are reading this, will have a good week too.
Hello, just a quick note to say that I’m still here, still photographing every day, but the reason why I’ve not updated for a few days is because I’m having a few technical difficulties with my laptop. Hopefully will be sorted soon!!! I’ll be sure to upload each days photo as soon as I am able to to. You’ll have plenty to look at!
I found this trio of mushrooms in my local park today. As I approached them, I walked in to the biggest cobweb you can imagine – it was worthy of starring in an Indiana Jones film! OK, well perhaps it wasn’t that big, but it sure did feel like it. For the rest of the afternoon, I felt as though I had a spider on my back waiting for the right moment to eat me alive……The things we do for photography – to get ‘that’ photo.
I spent 30 minutes of my day collecting rubbish from my local beach and this is what I collected. By the way – Queenscliff Beach is really pretty clean, the majority of this stuff has come in on the high tides that we had last week. 50 plastic bottle tops, 28 plastic straws, cigarette lighters, 2 condom packets, 1 flip-flop, the back of a wing mirror to a car…..countless sweet wrappers and the list goes on and on and on….. PLEASE DON’T DROP LITTER…..Ultimately, it ends up in our oceans. Turtles eat anything that floats – that includes plastic bottle tops. Birds eat pretty much anything. I am so upset with what I found. Imagine the difference if everyone did this! Well, there is a worldwide project called the TwoHands Project. You should look it up on facebook. Get involved like I have.
I had to bring the rubbish home, because it was so windy outside and I needed to document my findings. Isn’t it sad!!!!!
