Work in Progress Wednesday, November 12, 2008

As you can see my Blog is taking on a new look.  Not so pretty yet as I try and quickly learn XML.  At least I have worked out how to get a wider space to take larger pics it was just to small before.

So hopefully in the next few days I can have it looking pretty.

Mark can you see a little bit of sunflare in this shot :)

Baby Max

I have done my first real shoot, other than my family.  My friends had their 2nd baby a couple of weeks ago and asked if I would take some photos of him.  He is absolutely beautiful.

Photoshop Thursday, October 16, 2008

Finally today I got my copy of photoshop.  I have been procrastinating about this for a couple of months now and 2 days I bit the bullet.

I couldn't wait to open it up.  Oh it was so scary to begin with but now I have achieved a story board.   Yay!!!!!!!   Still have to perfect it a bit but at least I am kind of getting there.

Summer Sunday, September 28, 2008

well warm enough to be.  It was 30c here today and just beautiful.  We've just come home from 4 days of camping and water skiing out at sommerset dam.  We had a wonderful time.  Tim got up on skis for the first time without the training bar and on a single ski on the training bar.  Georgia got up on skis on the training bar.  This is huge because last time we went out she didn't like the feeling of being in the water in the middle of the dam.  She was fantastic when she fell off she would just wait in the water with her arm up.  I am so proud of both of them.

Poor Ellie ran into a stick and had a big hole in her lip.  So she couldn't go in the water for a couple of days.  But when she did she gave the tube a good workout.  That girl is not afraid of speed.  She also got out on the training bar for a little big and just hung in the water while the boat was going for a little bit.  She'll be skiing for sure by the end of summer.

These were taken today while the girls were outside cooling down.



o I come back to my blog and I see my last post and it is about how long it has been since I posted.  Wow it's like groundhog day or something.

Well quick update.  What have I been up to?? Ummmmm  nothing much.  

Some exciting news though.  Back in 2006 I upgraded my SLR camera to a flash Digital SLR.  I figured it would be easier to learn as I could take photos download them and see where I was going wrong straight away and I would learn heaps and .......

Fast forward to August 2008.  Thanks to the No. 1 photographer in the world I have found myself.  I am doing a Sheye Rosemeyer Explore photography course.  And guess what I get it.  Yes after 2 years I am fully manual.  I'm not saying I am good but at least I am getting there.  This has been my dream since 2000 when I bought my first SLR.  It only took me 8 years.

So I'm starting my blog again to record my photo journey into my new life through a lens.

Here is my first good photo.  Thing is Ellie is my little prop as the others are at school and aren't around much so you are going to see heaps of her.


I've been tagged Tuesday, May 13, 2008

Oh it has not been 3 months since I posted. Seriously where has that time gone. Well I haven't been holidaying or anything exciting just doing the everyday life things.

So I've been tagged by

Vanessa and Carrie - I think people are giving me the hint to update my blog because I seem to have disappeared.

So the tag this is what i have to do -

Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours
Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them
Leave a comment on each of the tagged bloggers blogs letting them know they have been tagged.

1. Neopolitan Ice Cream I have to put the lid on so that the colours that are on the lid match those in the container.

2. I hate spiders, am petrified of spiders actually. I can't even walk near where one has died. Mark squashed a massive one on the wall the other night and I was waiting for him to ask me to clean up the mess it left. There is no way i could do that. Even vacuuming them up gives me the creeps.

3. I don't do work gathering. Even if someone is having a morning tea for their birthday I will stay at my desk and keep working. Just can't be bothered with office crap.

4. I am snobby about my coffee. I don't do Instant, there is only 1 coffee shop in town that I will visit and only a couple in the city.

5. I can't stand the smell of Bundaberg Rum. Pre children that's all I used to drink now it makes me gag when I smell it.

6. I don't do confrontations well. I like things to just run nicely. At work yesterday one of the girls started a confrontation with her boss right in front of me and I just shrank and wanted to crawl away.

Very boring aren't I. I suppose it's good I don't have any major weird things.

Well i'm off to read Lynda's blog to see what Meme she is up to.

Out my Kitchen Window Wednesday, February 6, 2008

Lynda has a fantastic idea on her blog for everyone to show the view out their Kitchen window. She has recently moved to Cairo so hers is very different. It has been raining the whole holidays over here in Brisvegas so it is green green green. I don't have an actual kitchen window my kitchen bench is in front of sliding doors then out to our deck.

So here is my view! I do love looking out my kitchen window, which is just as well cause I spend so much time in there.
