Please help this beautiful family. They are going to need all the help they can get. 

Any donation however big or small will help. Please share the page too.

365 Days – Round 2 by Samantha Goode! Day 15 – Tuesday 07th April 2015.

Tears in Heaven 


I have no words today – other than life is very cruel sometimes. Good and proper cruel.

Bad things happen to really good people and it is just not right. 

Sometimes life hurts more than you can imagine.  

The last couple of days will stay with me for a very long time. 

Make the most of life – you really don’t know what’s around the corner. 

Love & Light X

365 Days – Round 2 by Samantha Goode! Day 12 – Saturday 04th April 2015.



 Everybody needs a little peace, quiet and harmony in their lives at least once in a while.

I always feel peaceful when I have lit a candle or two…candlelight is so soft and gentle. 

Imagine instead of the sun, we had a giant candle in the sky…imagine how peaceful and softly lit everything would be…

I wish peace, love and light on everyone who is reading this right now. x

365 Days – Round 2 by Samantha Goode! Day 4 –  Friday 27th March 2015

Beauty on a Friday.


Today, I had a glorious morning with a beautiful friend who travelled from Sydney to see me. This beautiful bunch of gorgeous smelling roses are from her. How lucky I am. 

I made some (freshly picked from the garden) lemongrass tea and we sipped that from china teacups before we headed to a beautiful local cafe that overlooks the beach. 

I had for breakfast, a beautiful granola and vanilla bean yoghurt dish with a fruit salad on the side. So refreshing! Not to mention the delicious much needed coffee I had with it. 

We then headed to the beach with my little one, who played in the water with his bucket and spade.  I also welcomed the opportunity to dive under a couple of waves. So invigorating! 

Perfect Friday! 


Hello everyone,

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


Day 351 Wednesday 14th March 2012


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.

Day 339 Friday 02nd March 2012


Natures Offerings

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 :)

2011 in review

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.

Day 230 Monday 14th November 2011

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.

Sunshine smiles :D

I’m still here

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! :) :)

Day 17 Friday 15th April 2011

Ferris Wheel of fun.

I took this whilst on a boat travelling across the Harbour. It was a very grey day and didn’t look like the best day to be at a theme park, but there were still people there, having fun, enjoying themselves…..good for them I say!

Day 7 Tuesday 05th April 2011

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.

Day 6 Monday 04th April 2011

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!!!!!

If you would like to do this yourself join a project like http://www.twohandsproject.org

Day 2 Thursday 31st March 2011


A rather gloomy day in Manly, but the light was rather nice today. I like this wharf, it’s alongside the main ferry terminal where people take the ferry to and from Sydney. This jetty is for one of the faster ferries.
