Friendly Friday Challenge – Nostalgia

A day in Norway “Photographers are writers- Writers are photographers: we catch a glimpse of something beautiful – a flower, a glance, a window – and catch it into our camera or writing lens: add a bit of glimmer, a ghost of a shadow, allowing the background to sink into fuzziness while focusing on the… Continue reading Friendly Friday Challenge – Nostalgia

Many years ago, whilst travelling through country Australia, I snapped a photo of a patch of forest in an old park, where we'd stopped to have lunch.

Friendly Friday Weekly Challenge – The Colour Pink

Young girls are pretty much divided into two camps - generally speaking. You are either a PINK or a PURPLE girl.

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Yellow

Yellow features in Bee Gees Way It is Spring in the northern hemisphere, whilst we in the South, prepare for Autumn. Australian native plants don't follow a strict regime of flowering as they do in the North. Some flower all year round. That is Australia - the land of eternal sun. At least the Xanthostemon… Continue reading Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Yellow
