Look Here! 217/365.

We live in  scenic place in New South Wales, Australia and around 10 minutes drive away, over the hill, of the Bouddi National Park area, is THIS!

Killcare Beach. We’ve swum here in Summer and now I enjoy walking here in Winter. Great place for reflection.

So, look here! Enjoy.

In Our Backyard. 210/365.

In Our Backyard. 210/365.

Whilst “this” backyard is actually not “ours” for now I deem it to be one where I can notice the changes in the growth of nature and get out the camera when I remember!

Sometimes, looking carefully in our backyard, there will be something of wonder to photograph.

Do you notice what’s growing in yours?

Art Helps Me Heal. 203/365.

Art Helps Me Heal. 203/365.

This week I went to my first ‘in real life’ Art Class in more than 10 years.

With loneliness and anxiety not helping my feelings of ‘settling in here’ it was time for me to find something where I meet with others. So far I enjoyed it and know it will be good to have this to look forward to each Tuesday.

Here are some of my art works from earlier. So far none from class as they are drying!

Do you like to use art as a way of helping  yourself overcome the daily stressors?

Almost Half-Way! 182/365.

Almost Half-Way! 182/365.

I started this challenge for me on 1 January 2015 to post every day.

I am meeting that challenge almost perfectly. Ok, there was one day a post wasn’t ascribed to a particular day but I know I’ve posted each day.

It is fitting that as a visual person and lover of photography that I am ‘almost half-way’ on Aussie Wordless Wednesday.

Here’s a snapshot (or more!) of this year’s highlights for me.

Super Storms hit everywhere along the Central Coast, the Hunter and Sydney and inland. Did not enjoy the 68 hours of no power!

Misty Morning. 175/365.

Misty Morning. 175/365.

I woke on Tuesday morning and it was 7degrees C. Ok. Stay in bed for a bit longer, I thought. Then I looked properly out to the water view from said bed. OH. I need to photograph this. Quickly donned something warm and ventured across the wet grass.

Here’s what I saw!

And a sheet of paper, or an index card…and follow the lines and make some of these fun ‘doodles’ ‘patterns’ and sometimes known as ‘tangles’.

For me, they are just fun patterns and at times they are both the best stress-release and creative pursuit I know!

Here are my offerings from the past few days.

Summer To Winter. 161/365.

Where we live now we have seen and experienced two full seasons (Summer and Autumn) and are now in Winter. Here’s some photos of The Bay from each season. I’m not saying which is which!

Inside The Sydney Opera House. 147/365.

Inside The Sydney Opera House. 147/365.

Last Thursday I attended the TEDXSydney 2015 Conference in the Sydney Opera House.

As part of being an attendee ( you pay to attend!) there is so much free access to areas of this iconic place and naturally I spent more than sometime ogling the view and taking pics! If you have never been inside it is stunning. Just stunning. I saw it grow from almost the ground up when we first moved the Sydney in the late 1950s.

Here, for Aussie Wordless Wednesday is ‘scenes from in the house!’My Little Drummer Boys

I paused on the many stairs to take this one.
