52 fridays

I always think it's good for the mood to have flowers in the house. No flowers in our garden at the moment so I picked up these ornamental kale yesterday at the supermarket. I love the shape of them -like a rose & a cabbage at the same time.

ten on ten

On the tenth day of every month for the last few years I have been taking ten photos over {about} ten hours as a way of looking for the beauty in the ordinary. It's a really great way of being mindful-looking out for something beautiful in the sometimes very mundane. 

I love documenting my day in this way... so yesterday, on the tenth, I paused and looked around every hour or so to take ten photos. This is a bit of what my tenth looked like.....

Melbourne


I had a very quick getaway to Melbourne to visit a friend over the weekend. Considering I was only there for 26 hours, we managed to squeeze quite a lot in...

Afternoon wanderings around the city...



Sunday morning breakfast & a wander around South Melbourne markets....







And Sunday wanderings along Brighton beach....





All so lovely :)

52 fridays



























I'm a bit late with my 52 Fridays this week because I have just had half a weekend away with a very old friend (not in age but in time we've know each other) who has moved to Melbourne. It was so nice to see her loving her job and enjoying her new city. We had dinner and chatted and she showed me around for an evening and a day. I arrived before her on Friday afternoon so I chose to wander around Fitzroy gardens to capture some afternoon sun in this beautiful place.





52 fridays is a year long photographic project that i started on my 52nd birthday

52 fridays

























There is nothing better than to get out on a beautiful autumn morning for a walk around the bay. I texted a friend yesterday & she was free this morning, so we went for a walk together.

"to find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter...to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring- these are some of the rewards of a simple life"  John Burroughs
