Bondi beach

 I had a really nice day today at Bondi beach.
I met up with the lovely Justine Gordon & we wandered and took photos & had coffee & wandered & took more photos & had lunch. 
And there was lots of chatting.
I had only met Justine before through her blog, so it was nice to meet her in real life. 
Here are just a few of the photos that I took....





 I did take a lot more photos, Bondi is such a colourful place, full of active & interesting people. 
I'll post some more photos over the next week....

scavenger hunt

It's been a while since I've participated in Ashley's scavenger hunt.
 I've missed it.
So I checked out this week's prompts earlier in the week & this is what I've come up with. 

time to eat...

getting ready...
brushing my hair before heading off to work
(& my first selfie since finishing my {in the picture} project last year)

playtime...
my children are at the age when this is what they play, although thankfully not an obsession, usually just when friends are over.

sweet dreams...
perhaps dreaming of chasing rabbits.

scrub-a-dub...
scrubbing brush on the kitchen sink...

It's very interesting how it just takes a bit longer when you're out of practise :)

ten on ten

It's time for ten on ten again.....
Ten photos over ten hours on the tenth day of the month.

I enjoy documenting my day in this way.
This is what my day looked like....

photo heart connection



I was drawn to this photo for this months photo heart connection.

Perhaps because it reminds me to focus on the moment, the things right in front of me.
Perhaps because it reminds me of the light at the end & along the way.
Perhaps because I spent a few minutes taking some more creative photos before our friends arrived for a beautiful day of fun.
Perhaps because I just like a bit of rust & the colours of the watery blur & light behind.


Maybe it's a combination of all of these things.
