In The Pink – Square in September Day 13

I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep up the pace of posting one photo a day for a whole month, even with the assistance of the schedule button. So now I’m playing catch up with Becky’s square photo challenge with the subject of pink. Here is the Caper White Butterfly on something pink and […]

Square in September – Day 10

When Chief and I spent a holiday in Penang we visited Penang Hill.  This is where scores of lovers have secured their love for each other at Love Lock, Penang Hill. Cropping the photograph to a square has meant missing the full impact of how far the padlocks stretch but you can see that from this […]

Square in September – Day 9

Those of you who have been following this Wombat for a while will know that in March 2017, my lovely Dad was awarded the MBE for services to charity and his community. I flew back to the UK to be one of his guests at the palace – yes, that is Buckingham Palace.  It was […]

Square in September – in the pink: day 8

I have been inspired  by Clare’s Cosmos to share my first attempt at photographing the moon – a la professional style. I can see the moon rising from our bedroom window and the balcony is a perfect spot to set up the tripod and ‘have a go’. I researched the ‘how to’ and realised that […]

Square in September – Day 7

Day 7 of the Square in September challenge and I was ‘tickled pink’ with this photograph. Chief and I were spending a few days in Singapore and from our hotel, we had a great view of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel – the swanky one that looks like a boat on stilts. I was checking […]

Square in September – Day 5

The Story Bridge in Brisbane is often lit in different colours to match the theme of various days on the state’s event calendar or in support of charity days. This picture was captured on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 a while back and I think it was to mark Pink Ribbon Day, the Cancer Council’s […]

Square in September – Day 4

For ten years the Royal Adelaide Show was a part of my life; it is where I worked and formed some life-long friendships. Then we upped sticks and relocated to Brisbane and most of you will know that I was dragged kicking and screaming to Queensland. You’ll be delighted to know that nearly three years […]

Square September – Day 3

I’m delighted to have the chance to show off my ‘award winning’ photograph with you again – when I say ‘award winning’ I mean ‘runner up’ but hey! it was the first photography competition I’d entered and was ‘tickled pink’ that my hurried snap turned out pretty okay. You can read all about how I […]

In the Pink – again

Day 2 of Square in September and a photo from my archive. This was one of the first photographs I took with my macro lens which was July last year. I was ‘tickled pink’ with the ‘pink’ result. I had been wandering around the neighbourhood with camera in hand and spotted this flower tumbling over […]
