2016 Changing Seasons – January

Last year I participated in a monthly blog series called The Changing Seasons.  The series was initiated by fellow blogger Cardinal Guzman from Oslo and involved people from all over the world posting photographs from their home town or city each month. This year the series is being run again but with another option – […]

The Changing Seasons – November

It seems like only yesterday that I wrote my first Changing Seasons post.  That was back in January, now here we are in November with only a month to go before the series is complete. The weather has been warmer this month so I’ve been out a few times wandering the streets of the city […]

Bench Series – October

I’m contributing this photograph to Jude’s bench series which she has been hosting on her site Travel Words. There have been some fabulous  images posted throughout the year and I encourage you to check the site out for yourselves. This month Jude is looking for a bench with someone or something sitting on it. I included […]

The Changing Seasons – October

I missed September in The Changing Seasons series as I was away in Fiji. Unfortunately it was a pretty important month to miss as so much changed in Melbourne in those few short weeks. Before I left the plane trees outside my window and throughout the city were bare. When I returned they were covered with […]

The Bolte Bridge – From Every Angle

Those of you who follow me on Instagram and Facebook will know that I recently did a night photography class as I’ve been bombarding you with my practice shots ever since. I’m posting some again for this week’s photo challenge so hope you’ll indulge me just one more time. This week we’ve been asked to […]

Weekly Photo Challenge – One Perfect Day

Today Was a Good Day is the theme for this week’s challenge. We’ve been asked to post a series of photos using an app called Mesh to describe an ideal day. I’ve not used Mesh before and started with the built in captions, but found they covered most of the photo so decided to describe my day […]

The Changing Seasons – August

There was a hint of the Spring warmth to come last weekend when the temperature reached 17 degrees. Unfortunately today is back to being cold, damp and grey. This has been our chilliest winter for 17 years and I am definitely over it. Bring on Spring! Despite the bad weather, I’ve managed to get out […]

The Changing Seasons – July

This is my very late post for this month’s Changing Seasons series. Melbourne is in the depths of winter and has been very cold and wet. The plane trees that line many of the city’s streets are bare and show off our beautiful old buildings in a way that we don’t see for most of […]

Melbourne streets

Today I went for a very long walk through Collingwood and Fitzroy and then into the city. These are some of the people I saw along the way.

The Changing Seasons – June

I took my new camera out today to take some photos for this month’s Changing Seasons series. This series was initiated in January by a fellow blogger, Cardinal Guzman from Oslo, and has people from all over the world participating. A few weeks ago we had a very chilly start to Winter, but this weekend was almost […]
