They didn’t seem to mind jumping off the jetty repeatedly for me although it wasn’t the warmest day. Thanks.
I travelled today with my 8 week old. Of course half way there I had to stop to attend to a meltdown. Sitting on the bank of the Murray River at Blanchetown in South Australia I had to feed him.
This was snapped on my Galaxy mid feed and cropped and edited on Snapseed. Well I had a hand free, mustn’t waste an opportunity while I’m out of the house. The clarity could be better, you can’t expect miracles from a phone camera with no option to move around to get the shot!
I love the dead trees at this place in the river. I hope one day when I have more time to come back with my DSLR.
I said that I had taken quite a lot of bird photos recently and then I got sidetracked and never got to posting the second part. So here they are.
Do you see the defiance in those beady eyes?!! That one in the front was clearly the mastermind. I’m convinced the feather display behind was to psych me into dropping my camera and running away therefore leaving them to eat the lens . You can’t out psych me goose. Although your beady eyes still haunt me.
These were a few more shots from my time at Broken Cliffs. I love the ‘lightness’ in the last image.
My husband and I were lucky enough to get out after the kids went to bed on a recent trip to Waikerie in the Riverland in South Australia. We went to our favourite place to hang out, Broken Cliffs. The evening was warm and although the battery died in my camera (yes, I am not the best person when it comes to preparation) and we couldn’t go swimming due to an unfortunate incident that had resulted in my husband sporting 3rd degree burn bandaging and strict instructions not so swim in the river, we hung around dipping our toes into the warm water and enjoying the quiet and the sunset. Here are a few of the shots I took before the camera battery ran out.
Hmmm, it is very close to fire ban season here and we have just had a week of very hot days, so I am not super keen to light fires. Here is one I happened to see. Obviously a farmer was doing their burning before fire ban started.
I also did a black and white image…mainly to pad out a week pretty thin on photos. Not sure which I prefer. Probably colour as usual.
Oops. OK so forgetting to post my photo on the day once since May isn’t too bad. I’m cutting myself some slack. It looks like the October challenge is hobbling to a close!
Here is yesterday’s prompt looking back. In more ways than one! I had to look back through the archives when I realised I forgot to find something suitable.
Scenes from my everyday life.
I am lucky as a SAHM (Stay At Home Mum) that I have the flexibility to take my kids on adventures or mini holidays in different places. I get bored just staying at home (I am about as far from a domestic goddess that you could possibly get) so I tend to find excursions to go on and my husband is the same so we often go of ‘adventuring’ on weekends. While we were out working on our echoes bouncing off the cliff on the other side of the river a man who was out for his exercise in a canoe came into view. After I nearly jumped up and down like a little kid with excitement at the possibility of taking his photo I composed myself and the image and took a few shots. The river was flowing so fast I found it hard to keep up. I don’t think he was expecting the paparazzi on the riverbank!
The final lot of photos from my recent photo taking expedition. I love the gentle glow of the ochre cliff in the background. The light was lovely. I don’t have much to say except that I am really enjoying finding and photographing things. I can’t think of anything not worth photographing. That would be an interesting challege actually. Being given something to photograph and trying to come up with an interesting image. I am not sure how it would work though. If no one had any suggestions I might have a month of no photos, haha. Oh dear, that would not do.
That’s it! I think I am up to date in posting the photos from Waikerie. I hope you enjoyed some of them.
