rosella jam


I'm not quite at the jam making stage of the process yet as I'm still collecting the fruit. Pictured above is the harvest from today. Only having five Rosella bushes it may take a while to collect enough to make jam with. Pick and freeze, pick and freeze, pick and freeze, pick and freeze... And when I do eventually make that jam it will be the most delicious gob-smacking yummy tasting stuff ever. I hope.

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #153


This guy was spotted sunbathing on the deck of the Dragonfly Cafe. Oddly there were no dragonflies to be seen. Maybe they're all in the belly of the sunbather.

Happy Easter! I wish there were sunbathing bunnies at the cafe that I could've shared with you, but no such luck. Probably far too busy with their deliveries.

Happy Sunday!

Some strolling shadows. Taken on Friday when the weather was oh-so-fine!

These people were walking along the path that leads to the Redcliffe Jetty...


A perfect Autumn day! I wish it continued into the weekend! Rain rain rain!

more botanicals...

Mushrooms

Dandelions

Casuarina Cones

Lantana

Four more photos added to the Minimalist Botanicals section of my Etsy Shop. I think it may be the current season that has inspired these new prints. They have an autumn kind of vibe about them I think. I'm really enjoying creating these!

Hello Monday and have a super week everyone!

Shadows surrounding bright yellow CityCycles parked along Albert Street. I like how the bright yellow extends to the couple of council workers in the corner.

Here's my Shadow Shot(s) Sunday #150


Sleeping. Zzzzz...


Awake. Stretching legs. Preparing to rise.


And a little meditation session to kick-start the morning.

I've stooped to a new low using a dead fly as a photo prop! I found this dead fly in the kitchen the other day. While scooping it up with a piece of paper to toss it in the bin I discovered some cool shadows thanks to the sun streaming in from the window. So I had a play around with it. As one does with a dead fly...

Happy Sunday!
