Some weekend pics

Today was a very laid-back day. Me and he-who-think-he’s-boss went to the autofair, bought a dishwasher (Yaaaaayyyy!!! 😀 — very happy face!) and are now chilling in front of the tele — a favourite to relax!

Fortunately I shot some pics on Friday before going on our getaway! Here are a few that I am pretty pleased with. Any comments/feedback on how to better my photos are more than welcome! I want to learn… &as you can see in my ‘About’, I’m an amateur photographer! — so please feel welcome to give me some pointers!! 🙂

Winter has taken its toll - our lonely postbox!


This is the type of stuff I love to shoot! It is simple & often overlooked in our busy daily lives. It is a challenge to shoot it in a different way or from a different angle. Often my best shot would be the simplest (is there even such a word?). I try to keep manipulation to a minimum (as my photoshop knowledge is very limited), most often my photos are directly from the camera.

Hope you enjoy!

    I like your perspectives and by the way, I am an amateur photographer as well. So, I’m probably not the best to give you advices. But your picture of lonely postbox is great. Love the color and composition 🙂

    Your pictures are beautiful! I love to see “every day things” from a different perspective. I, like you, have very limited PS knowledge and maybe am a little bit of a purist at heart… so I really appreciate seeing pictures that are beautiful right out of the camera. You have a great eye!

      Thank you Shayna!!

      Yes, PS is quite a mystery… but I must say I love learning!!! 🙂 – – – & this blog is the perfect place to do so!!! I can already see a difference in my photoshop skills since starting my blog!! But it stays a challenge to get the shot as close to it looks in my mind or as I process it!! 😀 **
