Pets

For the Friday photo challenge this week we have the theme of pets. I have plenty of pets so this one is quite achievable (I’m an intermittent contributor to say the least). One of the points of the photo challenge is that the pictures have to be taken in the week of the challenge –…

A tree or three

Last week’s Friday photos theme was trees. I managed to get a photo up into the group for the first time in a few weeks – it was this one, called ‘Digital Wattle’ from my trip into town to the Vivid festival. As always happens when the Friday photos theme goes up, I have other…

Water water everywhere

In the next of a not very reliable or regular series of posts designed to highlight the stories behind the photos I’m taking for the Friday Photos Challenge, I bring you a tiny bit of the Coast Walk – from South Bondi to Bronte Beach. ┬áIf you spend even 5 minutes looking through the Friday…

Not talking about that here. I have come back from leave to a newly renovated workroom, with new furniture, a new spot on the…

Colours in my week

Beginnings

Having decided that the 365 photos in a year thing was too hard in 2011, I’m up for another challenge this year so am participating in Friday Photos 2012 (twitter hashtag is #fp2012). Immediately this seems easier – it’s just one photo a week (although we can load up to 3) AND someone else is…
