I took my four legged friend to our favourite, old park the other day. I wonder if he remembers it at all.
What I love most about the park is the tall pine trees. There’s several in a line that form a pine tree corridor and I love walking through it. Makes me feel like I could be somewhere else, like New Zealand or Canada, minus the cold temp. The textured patterns on the tree trunks are amazing!
Here’s some pics.
I wish we still lived nearby.
Where did the month go? It just went “zoom, zoom, zoom!”
It’s that time again where I reflect on the past month’s photo journey and select the five that I like the most. Here they are:
Because the blossoms are beautiful and I love the colours of the flowers against the sun and sky
I like the simplicity of silhouettes and purple sky
It's a memorable moment to see a stunning rainbow. I also like the tree in the composition
When I look at this photo I'm taken back to the moment. So gentle and peaceful
I like that I can see the soft threads and the glow of the sunlight. Summer is on its way
I’m a big animal lover and really drawn to taking beautiful photographs of animals. (My photo a day heavily features one animal in particular – my labrador Hutch!)
I entered this photograph of him into a fun pet photo competition that is currently running on Facebook.
Vote for Hutchy!
I came across a blog that featured the best entries to another pet competition and thought I’d post them for some inspiration. The winning entry below is absolutely gorgeous! Such a neat idea.
And here are some of my other favourites…
Love the focus on the eye. The floorboards and the yellow curtain really tie it all together
An interesting and beautiful bond
Gotta love our four legged friends 🙂
This is a sight I don’t see every day.
The blurry things on the left are little birds – they were so fast and there were at least 20 of them fluttering about, not quite sure what they were doing as they weren’t skimming the water for food.
I wish I lived by the river…
Winter is officially over! *DRUM ROLL* I am thrilled. Not much of a winter person, spring suits me just fine, thank you.
I must say, winter is a great season to take photographs though. The overcast days provide interesting lighting and there’s beautiful clouds, rain and reflective puddles too. I am lucky to live in a part of the world that is treated to a good dose of winter sunshine, so I’m quite spoilt with the day-to-day variation on show.
I do love taking photographs of flowers though… so I’m happy spring has finally reared it’s colourful head.
Here are my favourite five photos for August, as part of my ‘Photo a Day’ project.
There's a storm brewing
Blades of grass catching the day's last rays
Abandoned power station at sunset
Sun spots form a love heart for me
Booking a wedding photographer is on my ‘to-do’ list… and well, I’ve been procrastinating.
There are a couple of photographers that I can use as part of the wedding package ‘deal’, however looking at their work, I’m not convinced that they are right for me.
My heart isn’t feeling it.
I’ve been collecting photos that do make my heart flutter however… here are some of them:

I just need to do the research and find the magic mix of dream photographer + Thailand location (or at least close). Fingers crossed.
I couldn’t help but notice the brewing storm clouds hovering ominously over the river today.
There’s something beautiful about the heaviness and dramatic moodiness of the clouds.
The rain caught me in the end, but like water off a duck’s back, I was happy to keep shooting.
