August 19: Winter flower

Even after three days of snow and a freezing winter, somehow this flower and blossoms were still out today. I thought they would be well and truly frozen by now but apparently not… So a little bit of spring sneaking through in the middle of winter on day 229…

July 13: Path lights

We are house-sitting in a pretty flash gated community for the next month (while we work on our house) and I went for a wander down to the lake with my camera tonight. I was trying to get the reflections from the houses across the water but it’s a bit windy and the results weren’t so great… I turned around to walk back down the path and thought that this little scene would make a good photo. And the long exposure lit up the scene enough to see the detail in the trees behind so I’m happy with the result šŸ™‚ Day 194 done!

June 19: Wicker maze

I was on the hunt for something to photograph tonight and opened Brylee’s toy box. It seems odd but her favourite toys aren’t the ones that we have bought her or that family have paid good money for, but instead random household objects. Her favourite toy used to be thisĀ decorativeĀ ball but now she has become more domesticated and moved on to bank cards and a wooden spoon. She will throw away actual toys for her wooden spoon that came in a pack of 3 for $1.99 – go figure! I know what I’m buying next time our friends have a baby though… This ball caught my eye so I picked it up and had a play with different angles and light. I liked the sharpness of the wicker in the flash but I think the best part is the small bits of food that Brylee has left on it just in case she gets hungry whilst playing sometime in the future… Day 169 out of the way šŸ™‚
