Week 23: Long Exposure

By Candle Light

I haven’t really done this kind of photo before, so once again I had to pull out my camera’s instruction manual and find out how to do it. Then one morning waking up at 5 am I played with fire.

And phew, I made it halfway!

Week 22: Hot

Mum grew lots of cacti. It was an amazing but dangerous collection. This one was particularly spiky and sat near a light switch.

Some like it hot

Week #20: My Passion

It was hard to chose one passion, but to keep it simple I needed to do just that.  One thing I have learned so far is that pictures are better if they are not too busy.  So what is my passion?  I love gardening, fiber arts, music, science…oh and Murphy:

Cat paws
How could you not be passionate about something with paws like that!

Week 17: Architecture

Garden Design

Garden Design

This week’s theme was architecture and I just never found time to go and visit appropriate buildings.   So I gave up and took a photo of a landscape design.  This was drawn for my garden in 2000 just after I moved in to my current house.  I was lucky that I had ~20 designs drawn by the landscape design students.  This was one of the best.

I didn’t really follow any of the designs as I was able to move things like the AC to the back of the house and put a deck in from the kitchen.  Seeing the designs was very helpful though.  It would be quite useful to have followed a design as at the moment everything is growing so fast that I cannot tell what is lawn and what is flowerbed.

Garden will not stop growing

Garden will not stop growing

The thought of clearing everything up is quite daunting.  When it finally stops raining I will have to divide the garden into square feet and clear one foot at a time.  Otherwise it is a bit deer-in-the headlights and nothing will get done.
