addicting

Sweet Goodness

Sugar,sugar,sugar. That delicious syrupy friend that taunts and tantalises the best of humans. Maybe you are a chocolate nut? A candy fiend? A dessert demon? Well, rest in peace. All of you sweet specimens know how to live.

        unplugged

Plug it in

tune me up,

Flashing screen

fill my cup.

Beloved friend

and constant pal,

Be not far

from my locale.

My needs are simple

yours are too,

Yet sometimes

I need the loo.

At that moment

we are unplugged,

Tho fear not

Don’t be bugged.

I’ll be back

refreshed and new,

to embrace the gifts

I so love in you.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Good Morning!

THIS WEEK, SHOW US A PHOTO THAT SAYS “GOOD MORNING!”

Ta Da!! I’m sure I won’t be the only person who thinks coffee when they think good morning. I have a ritual that involves a trip to my local shop where, with great ceremony, I purchase a latte and then take three hours to drink it. Sometimes I don’t even enjoy it, especially when bitterly cold but it has to be done – every morning, rain, hail or shine.

P.S you will notice I have upsized my photos. How clever I think to myself. Thankyou to the poster who made me realise it was possible.

good morning

choices

The Bookshop

How do you pick what blogs or books to read? What’s the one thing that will get you to pick up a book or click on a link every single time? Photographers, artists, poets: show us CHOICES.

There is nothing more delightful than the sights, sounds and smells of a real bookshop. Not the virtual type, but one with hard copy reading material, crisp and new. I still remember the smell of library books from my childhood and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. In both these reading institutions, the choices are endless and lined up neatly in rows. This appeals to my OCD tendencies too, so its win-win really.

This week, show us a photo of whatever you’d like, but make sure it’s saturated. It can be black and white, a single color, a few hues, or a complete rainbow riot; just make sure it’s rich and powerful. Let’s turn the comments into an instant mood-booster!saturated challenge

Manly sunset

Trust nature (and a little crafty filtering) to produce the best colour display imaginable. What a spectacular painting right before our eyes.

South Steyne Manly

There is no greater pleasure than enjoying the final whispers of a beautiful day, by the ocean. The more you find yourself there, you notice all the other clever people who realised this before you did. Here at Manly, the days travels are etched into the sand like a storybook. I wonder what tales they have to tell…

Celebrating Spring

This celebration is in honour of Spring. It’s one of my favourite seasons and I love it most, when plants you thought had bitten the dust long ago, perk up and deliver beauty like this. A wind storm blew off its spritely counterparts earlier in the week but these babies are still bringing joy to my front porch. I hereby celebrate nature’s Spring offerings.

Bikes at the beach

It’s strange that I would take a snapshot of these, I know, yet somehow I couldn’t pass it up. They were so red and so matching and so out of action. Truly at a standstill. Stashed in my arsenal for just this occasion. How fortuitous!

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO (OR GALLERY) OF SHAPES, LINES, TEXTURES, OR PATTERNS.’

It’s been a while my friends but I’m back with a vengeance. Unfortunately, my walking photographic adventure has come to a standstill but in the meantime, here is my contribution to this weeks challenge. These are all from the archives but very apt for the project. Or so I thought anyway…

The Bondi excursion

Bondi Icebergs.

There I was. Me, ‘Hoppo’ and some other Bondi Rescue favourite (whose name escapes me: Natho? Bretto?) watching a very fit bikini’d lass do Capoeira on the beach. I of course, was watching her skill. They? not so much.

I had forgotten the greatness that is a quick visit to Bondi…. and a return trip home.
