almost summer...


Spring Hill Bed & Breakfast


Summer Siesta!

Above are a couple of older photos found in the archives that I've newly added to my Etsy shop in celebration of Summer! We're now in the final days of spring and if the heat of the last couple weeks is any indication of what's in store for summer it's going to be an absolute scorcher! But hey, that's life in Queensland! It suits me just fine as I'm not one to cope terribly well in cold climates.


I've just started making some of my photos available on redbubble (hence the little slideshow above). My photos can be purchased through redbubble in a range of sizes and with all kinds of options such as: matted, mounted, gallery canvas wraps, framed, greeting cards, and there's even a calendar. As redbubble handles all of the printing and processing of the orders I have to upload the original high resolution images which is taking quite some time so it could be a little while before I have everything available on there. So if you've had your eye on one of my photos on Etsy or elsewhere and you've been wanting it in a larger size just let me know and I'll make it available for you on redbubble pronto.

The lovely Rhianne of the awesome blog For The Easily Distracted is currently hosting a Christmas giveaway where you can win four of my prints. If you'd like to enter head on over HERE. The winner will be drawn on Friday 2nd December.

In other news I was saddened to hear of the passing of one the cinema greats on Twitter this morning. Yes, strangely that's where I hear all my news! Director Ken Russell is no longer with us, but he sure did leave an amazing body of work behind for us to appreciate and enjoy well into the future. I'll leave you with this youtube clip of The Lair of the White Worm trailer. This film would most likely be considered quite low-brow in comparison to the majority of his other films but it sure is a hoot! If you've not seen it, try seeking it out. It's an entertaining riot!

Here are some photos that I've recently added to my Etsy shop (a few more yet to add...I'm a little slow with the listing process). A couple of these photos I had taken a while back so you may have seen them posted to my blog previously but as they're now available for sale, I thought I'd include them in this update.

Thanks for looking!

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #183


I really wanted to post a shadow shot that I'd taken while on holidays but all of my photo files are such a chaotic mess right now I couldn't locate one! Doh! This photo was taken behind a police station pre-holidays. And no I wasn't called into the police station for any wrongdoing. I was simply taking a short-cut to reach my destination sooner and snapped this photo along the way. I swear! Anyway, it was nice to find that Shadow Shot Sunday chugged along so well without me and thank you all so much for your lovely holiday well wishes! I had a lovely time away and only wish that holidays could last forever and ever! Ha! Don't we all!

PS: A small sample of holiday snaps can be seen in my post below if interested.

Edit Sunday afternoon: Update - I've just discovered through visiting fellow SSS friends that our fellow friend and regular shadow shooter Joe (Spadoman) is in need of some well wishes & words of encouragement right now. If you can spare some time to go visit Joe's blog & leave him a message I'm sure he'd appreciate it. Joe's a funny, kind-hearted soul who has been a pleasure getting to know via SSS and so I wish him all the best. As I'm sure we all do. Take care Joe! xo

Happy Sunday!

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #181


*** I'm currently away on holidays! ***

This post and the one for next week were drafted and scheduled to post while I'm away, so hopefully the Mr Linky behaves himself and there are no problems during my absence. The regular SSS posts with the Shadow Gallery collages of your lovely shots will be back to normal on Sunday the 20th November. Looking forward to sharing some photos of my trip when I return! I'm heading on a little road trip to North Queensland to explore the Great Barrier Reef! Woohoo!

Happy Sunday!
