About Me

My photo
I started this blog as I entered my 40th year, and now firmly in my 40s, I continue to learn so much about life. I'm learning that life rarely goes according to plan and that there's something new to learn every single day, be it a subtle nudge or a smack in the face.... This is my blog about muddling through my 40s-working hard, writing a book, being an ammateur photographer, trying to exercise and eat well, endeavouring to be the world's best aunt, as well as having fun and laughing out loud every single day.

#17 Photography... my other love and frustration

My mind is very good at capturing images that will last a lifetime.  Creative, brilliant shots that would amaze even the most established photographer.

Unfortunately, my camera operating skills do not translate from my mind to my finger.  Nor do my photo editing skills.

Regardless, I trudge along to Camera Club on freezing Thursday nights and I persevere.

The next competition I am entering is titled "Performers".  I managed to coax two friends - one a Julia Gillard impersonator and the other a budding magician - to pose for me.  Here are some of the results.  I'd love your comments. 

Which four would you enter?


  1. Top to bottom, the first four. Well done!!!

  2. Only tip I can give is forget the camera club, I found them no help at all, least the ones I visted in the uK were like that. Nobody wanted to help at all which was sad.

  3. I would stick to a theme and therefore use the 4 magician ones. I know nothing about photography, but I just love the play of light in each of his photos. I particularly love the second last photo oh him, the close up of his hands and the way you have captured the cards falling. I found this one the most interesting to look at :)

    1. Actually, Jodie, I like your idea better than mine. :-)


I love to receive feedback, so please leave me a comment.
