When the clock strikes 12h00…

I took these photographs on the same day… Believe it or not, but it is the same flower – – – when closed one cannot think that it opens up to become an unusual but beautiful flower!!! I did a post a while back called Flower Drops, with the same type of flowers, it had just rained and had droplets of water on its petals!!!

In the meantime… enjoy my ‘beauty in disguise’ flower!!!

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!
