Mid 2014 Update:_
I have now upgraded to a full-frame camera, Canon 5D Mk III. So happy with it. Have also done the full Lightroom/Photoshop CC thing which is challenging to say the least. Still posting once a day on anything and everything around and on my property that Purgatory Creek flows through. But big changes are afoot and I write up on the first Friday of each month what is happening in my life and where I am with those changes and challenges.
Flair is still as beautiful as ever, see her photo below.
I started this Blog in January 2013, now it is January 2014 and the year of my ‘Quilters’ Project 52′ has come to an end. I am continuing to post photos to the Blog because I enjoy the stimulation of having to come up with a reasonable photo each day
Me Up A Tree
Living on 600 acres in the Australian bush with a bit of water called Purgatory Creek flowing through gives me many opportunities for photographing the beauty of nature. My son-in-law talked me into starting this blog to let me share some of the photos I take around my home and on my travels. Most of the time my kelpie, Flair, keeps me company. Unfortunately she doesn’t always understand the patience needed to wait for the right light or the wind to stop to get the photo I want, but we get there in the end.
For 25+ years I was a freelance Quilting tutor, travelled widely both in Australia and overseas, wrote two books and took lots of photos. I retired 2 years ago. A Nikon D7000 is my new baby and a Casio Exlim point & shoot has been my companion for many years. Before that it was the good old film days with a Nikon SLR
Every Friday will be “A Quilters’ Project 52″ where I will post a photo and a small 18” quilt on the same theme (not necessarily a copy of each other) for a year. And if time and inclination combine, a quilt project on one of the themes that month. The rest of the week will be for posting a photo a day.
If you like my photos, please leave a comment or follow me as I post up some of my favourite images – I would love to hear from you!
