The winner of the SSS #100 Super Secret Giveaway is #38 participant from last week:

Lisa's RetroStyle

Congratulations Lisa! Your prize is an Aussie themed pack containing a book called Australian Quirk (jam packed with fun kitsch photos!), a packet of yummy Tim Tams, a jar of delicious rosella jam, a set of Aussie postcards, and a tube of vegemite. Just get in touch with your details so I can post your pack to you asap. The sooner the better Lisa, otherwise you may find the packet of Tim Tams to weigh a lot less than the 200 grams as stated on the packet! I'm a bit of a piggy when it comes to Tim Tams. Not so with vegemite though. Yuck! But hey, you may like vegemite Lisa. Many Aussies love the hideous black gooey stuff. If you don't like it then you could save it for a camping trip and slather it all over your body to ward off mosquitoes. Just a thought. I've not tried this myself but have heard that it works rather well as an insect repellent.


Many thanks everyone! I really wish that I could have given something to all SSS players. Here's a little consolation prize for everybody. I'll sing the original 1949 penned Vegemite advertising jingle for you.

We're happy little Vegemites
As bright as bright can be.
We all enjoy our Vegemite
For breakfast, lunch and tea.
Our Mummies say we're growing stronger every single week
Because we love our Vegemite.
We all adore our Vegemite.
IT PUTS A ROSE IN EVERY CHEEK!
We're growing stronger every week.

Huh? What's that? You couldn't hear me singing? That's odd...oh...I now see what's happened. I forgot to plug my microphone in. Well, the fact that you couldn't hear me singing just made that gift much sweeter!

Happy Sunday!

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #100


The above isn't my 'shadow shot' but a lead into this alternative view I spotted of the buildings...


Still not exactly a 'shadow shot' but the reflection of St John's Cathedral and another building as captured in the highrise block across the road that caught my eye. I like the wonky reflection of the taller building! Some nice city reflections found along Ann Street in Brisbane. And yes, I do occasionally leave my little island hideaway. More than occasionally actually, as I regularly commute into the big smoke for work.

And in celebration of this being the 100th SSS post I'm having a...

Shadow Shot Sunday Super Secret Giveaway!

The Super Secret giveaway prize will be revealed next week along with the name of the winner. The reason for the secrecy is because I haven't figured out what the prize will be yet. But rest assured, it will be a package of some nice little things! The winner will be drawn randomly from this weeks Mr Linky participant link list, so all SSS participants this week are automatically entered into the giveaway. The giveaway is a little token of my appreciation to you fine folk for playing along. Many thanks to everyone & good luck!

Happy Sunday!

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #99


Some remains from an old wharf at Thompson's Point. The wharf was built in 1865 using local sandstone, and what was crudely referred to at that time as "Kanaka" labour. And a little further along I found this...


A nice old rusty metal shell-encrusted relic resting peacefully in the shadows.

I'm having such fun exploring my new surroundings!

Happy Sunday!

Shadow Shot Sunday #98

Hello! I'm finally back! And what a crazy last couple of weeks it has been. It sure feels good to be back blogging again! Unfortunately I've not had the time to visit blogs yet and I'm way behind in all that has been happening in the blogosphere. So again there is no Shadow Gallery of collages this week but all will be back to normal next Sunday. I noticed quite a few new names participating in Shadow Shot Sunday from the previous weeks during my absence, so thanks to all those newbies for joining in. I'm looking forward to catching up with shadow shooters this weekend. I've missed everyone & it feels like I've been away for ages!

If you’d like to join in Shadow Shot Sunday, please do. How? Shoot a shadow, post it on your blog on Sunday (or close to Sunday), then add your link to Mr Linky (located at the end of this post), and visit other players. First-time participants are required to click here for further info before submitting links. Thanks!


Some sweet welcoming shadows I spotted on the first morning of waking up in my new home.

And then it was time for coffee on the deck...


This is the view from my front deck. To the front of my house and all along one side of it is council zoned conservation bushland. Residing in that bushland is an amazing abundance of birdlife. This island hosts many rare and threatened species and the area is apparently an internationally recognised migratory bird habitat. I've already made friends with a couple of delightful kookaburras! I don't have water views from my house, or even water glimpses, but the ocean is only a short and pleasant 5 minute walk down the road.

Happy Sunday!
