{in the picture} october selfies

The theme this month for {in the picture} is 'my favourite place.'
I have a few favourite spots, but I think being at home is my most favourite. 
Home is with the people that I love.

So, I found a moment when the lounge room wasn't full of laundry waiting to be folded.
 I wasn't sure whether to sit or stand or twirl, so I did them all & made a collage.
My husband thinks I'm crazy!

I really liked the idea of searching and sorting through my archives, so I'm joining in here with Chelle.

scavenger hunt

On Friday I went to Sculptures by the sea. 
As I took photos, I had this week's scavenger hunt prompts in the back of my mind.


Faceless portrait... 
very cool reflections!

I always enjoy participating in scavenger hunt ( it's been a while...) and this week's been fun. 
Look out for more scavenger hunters here.

sculptures by the sea

Today I went to Sculptures by the Sea.

".. the spectacular Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk transformed into a 2km long temporary sculpture park featuring over 100 sculptures by artists from Australia and across the world."

It was a stunning day and so lovely to be in a beautiful location looking at some amazing art.
I had a short time to upload my photos, so here is a small selection of some of the beautiful & interesting art that we saw. 
I'll post more soon.

a morning walk

I try to get out for a walk with the dog most mornings. 
As we get further into Spring it's getting warmer & more colourful. 
(although we've had a bit of a cold snap since I took these photos on Wednesday)

I love all the things that I can look at as I wander the streets.
Lots of shadows too, so I'm joining in here.

ten on ten

Joining in with a bit of sunshine for ten on ten this month. 
Ten photos over ten (or so) hours on the tenth day of the October.

This is what my day looked like.

I always love documenting my day in this way...looking for beauty in the every day.

snap it {splash}

On Monday we took Poppy to Bayview, where she is allowed to run around without a lead. 
It was a public holiday and lots of other dog owners had a similar idea. 

There was lots of splashing!
We came home with an exhausted (and smelly) pooch.

Last week I visited a friend's property to take some photos of their alpacas.
They are so friendly & curious. 
 There were lots of other beautiful things to look at.
It was a lovely afternoon.
