Flower

Here is another flower that I had a go at. I am so hopeless with flowers that I don’t even know what type of flower this is. If anyone knows please do tell.

Woodman Point Sunset 2nd Edition

I posted a shot of Woodman Point quite a while ago and I thought it was awesome. Somehow I overlooked this one which I think is heaps better so I thought why not post it, so here it is.

Kookaburra

We went away at Easter to Dwellingup, which for those of you who don’t know is a little town about an hour and a half down south from Perth. There is a great camping ground there and we just love it. It’s great for the adults as well as the kids, we just have a blast.

While we were there we saw this Kookaburra which we thought was still a baby as it was still quite little. I’m not really into animals a lot but he was really cute and I wanted to have a go at photographing a bird so I gave it a go. I feel that this shot came out pretty good but I can’t decide if I like the coloured version better or black & white.

What do you think?

Frangipani

I don’t really do macro photography and I’m not a real flowery kind of person but I like to have a go at different things, I’m always up for a challenge and I love meeting new people and getting fresh ideas and inspiration. Anyway I had a go at some flowers and here’s one of the shots I took of a neighbours frangipani. I actually really like frangipani’s which is one of the few flowers that I do really like.

Storm Again

Green Head Coast

Last Easter we went up to a place called Green Head with my cousins and our families had a great time. I’d forgotten about the few photos that I’d taken and I just found this so I thought I’d show you all.

There’s not much there really to do or to take photos of but I think this one came up alright.

What is photogenic?

I just love this photo of my daughter. It is now my most favourite shot of her. She is such a great model for me, she’s just so natural and relaxed. I don’t think I really have many bad photos of her at all. It sux because I am so not photogenic and my husband and daughter are, lucky things.

You know some people are just good in front of a camera, I’m not sure if it’s confidence or what it is that makes a person photogenic. Photogenic doesn’t even mean that you are drop dead gorgeous, it’s just something that you have, for some reason that means that you look good in photos.

What do you think it is that makes a person photogenic?

Ruby

This is the very cute Ruby. She was only a week old when I took these photos of her and she was such a great baby. She slept beautiful and let me do whatever I wanted once she’d had a feed and had a nice full tummy.

I can’t decide between the original shot or the desaturated. I think the desaturated looks kinda cool because of the wooden box and the old feel it gives it but I like the saturated one as well with all the colour to it.

What do you think? To saturate or not to saturate?

Another shot from Matilda Bay

This is another shot from Matilda Bay. I wanted to get something in the foreground but there isn’t a lot to choose from so I decided to try it out with one of the trees on the foreshore. I think it turned out pretty good.

Let me know what you think.

Roxy and my allergies

I don’t usually post this sort of thing but today I felt like doing something a bit different for me.

Recently I have had to rehouse our beloved cat Roxy and my daughter’s pet rat Penny due to severe allergies. It is ridiculous to think that I have suffered from allergies all of my life but have only recently had allergy testing done and found out that I am allergic to cat’s, dog’s, feather mix (goose, duck & chicken), mould and the rat, plus what I had always know which was grass and pollen.

How strange that as a child I was constantly at the doctors about this and was one of the first children to be put on numerous different medications that had only just come out, as a bit of a guinea pig but no one ever suggested allergy testing.

I have to say I was extremely upset when I found out that I had these other allergies and hadn’t know for all this time. It was really hard knowing that the major cause of my allergies, which was my cat could have been avoided for such a long time and would have saved me a lot of tears, pain, frustration and just generally feeling like crap constantly. I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and just be grateful that at least had found out.

We ended up deciding that we would have to find Roxy a new home after doing a few tests to check that it was in fact her causing me the worst problems. It was terrible to have to say goodbye to her, I thought I was fine and couldn’t figure out why I was crying or felt like crying all the time for days, and then I realised why.

I am really pleased to be able to say that even though it was horrible and I felt like the worst mother in the world (there’s nothing more heartbreaking than your kids crying their eyes out because of a problem that you have) we were able to find great new homes for Penny the Rat and Roxy our cat. Thank goodness that it has made a HUGE difference already to how I feel, it’s unbelievable really.

I was updating my family photos and came across this shot of  Roxy and so I thought I’d edit it and do a post on my blog and write about what happened to me.
