Week 31: Style

Daniel

The 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS was all about style.

Debbie

Australian style has a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’.

Grant

How do you like my style?

Melanie

It was like staying in the pages of an interior design magazine. Queenie sure had style!

Sharon

Taking a leaf out of my mother’s book, and giving afternoon tea some style.

Tim

Relaxing after work, Australian style…

Week 30: Photographer’s Choice #3

Daniel

It may not look it, but there’s waves beyond that there jagged rock. Good waves too, and judging by the casual yet confident march of this surfer I’m sure he already knows.

Debbie

Spoilt for choice – the photographer on the beach became the photographer’s choice.

Grant

Murwillumbah night sky.

 

Melanie

You can’t visit Murbah without seeing the majestic cloud catcher; just ask Aunty Carol.

Sharon

Sunset. Murwillumbah. Mt Warning with its head in the clouds. Such a special place and a special time together.

Tim

Getting up early on a foggy morning paid off; for once the top of the mountain was visible. The rest of it, maybe not so much…

Week 29: Little

Daniel

Sometimes the littlest things take up the most room in our hearts.

Debbie

It’s the little things in life….Holding your father’s hands may seem a little thing to some but to us, at this particular moment in time, it was huge.

Grant

It’s the little moments that count.

 

Melanie

This week has been a tough and emotional week but the little one has not only joined our family but helped to make the sadness just that little bit more bearable.

Sharon

Brothers Daniel and Chase … spending a little time together with family in the little time Grandad had left.

Tim

From little things…

Our week 30 theme is: Photographer’s Choice #3…

Week 28: Summer

Daniel

Summer means scorching days, sand too hot to walk on, air con, the Ashes, ice-creams that melt faster than you can eat them. Oh, and the Australian Open of course.

Debbie

Dive into Summer!

Grant

Many summer memories that won’t be forgotten.

Sharon

A great way to spend a summer’s day.

Tim

A wide road, warm light, and a seatbelt buckle hot enough to brand cattle; must be summer…

Our week 29 theme is: Little…

Week 27: Frame

Daniel

This little green setup caught my eye today as I drove past. I backed up and snapped this from the driver’s seat. No arches though sorry.

Debbie

No need for rose coloured glasses when you’ve got this view in the frame.

Grant

What you find when you climb a ladder to check the roof cavity – all retired from the walls for more relevant material. As well as a now rarely used  ‘frame filler’ implement and associated paraphernalia.

When will the current crop of wall adornments be moved on? Which ones will stay? Will any come back out of the roof? When will the ceiling collapse under the weight?

Too many questions!

Mel

The beaches are usually framed by bushland in Aus but here in the U.K. this one is framed by a sliver of sunlight and a curved wall. Just as beautiful in my humble opinion.

Sharon

Frame?? What does that even mean? I think this is a frame – well, it frames the pyramids in the Louvre so I’m guessing it is.

Tim

Arches seem to frame many of the little laneways in this part of the city, perhaps owing to the similar arches on the church windows. Echoes everywhere…

Next week…

Our week 28 theme is: Summer (or Winter in the northern hemisphere!)

Week 26: Self-portrait #3

Daniel

Mum sent me some good tips for a home self portrait so I tested them out this afternoon. The model was unprofessional and the photographer was demanding, they had some harsh words for each other but were ultimately both satisfied with the result.

Debbie

I am sunshine; I am shade; I am one among many; standing tall and
always reaching for the sky! I am a faceless self portrait 🙂

Grant

The view from the crossword.

Mel

Not a photo from this week (I found it this week does that count?!) but this self portrait sums up how I want to go into 2018 – smile on my face, wind in my hair, sand in my toes, ready for adventures and just loving life.

Sharon

Living it up in Venice.

Tim

Contemplating our next adventure…

Week 25: Festivities/holidays

Daniel

Nothing says holidays like a road trip to Byron on a hot summer day. The sun was shining, the water was warm, the waves were rolling, and the locals balanced boards on their heads as gracefully as if they had attended the finest finishing schools.

Debbie

Playing with apps on the phone on Christmas Day while walking along the beach after all the festivities (as you do!). I happen to think Sarah looks quite good with a beard 🙂  My AA sessions haven’t helped my red nose problem though! (Just joking I go to aqua aerobics, not the other sort of AA)

Grant

The calm before the storm of the nightly fun and excitement for the Jervis Bay holidaymakers.

Mel

No we never get snow here over Christmas and then this happens.  If I can’t have a sunny Christmas I wanted a snowy one. Thank you for delivering on my wish Santa, you champ.

Sharon

The aftermath of Christmas festivities. Mel and Craig’s. Cheddar, UK.

Tim

After searching in vain through the streets of Paris for some festive cheer, I was rather pleased to find it so easily and convincingly in Switzerland…

Next week…

Our week 26 theme is: Self-portrait #3.
