1. fit, 2. String Game, 3. the beautiful sleep (far), 4. rose is a rose head band, 5. Untitled, 6. Tyler my Tyler. , 7. Untitled, 8. rose crown, 9. Untitled. Tonight while wandering around Flickr the fourth image caught my interest, and that was it, my old love of portraiture came back to me. Even though there is an illustration in the tile and one or two photos may not be strictly portraiture, this photo tile is a little celebration for an old love and (when it comes to photography) my first love.

Autumn, you're just in time

Ducks a flying and hearts a burning. The Adelaide Festival draws us out on a cool Sunday evening. A basket of trusty Autumn favourites gets a spot by our front door. Since seeing the film Julie and Julia our consumption of butter has gone up and the olive oil has barely made it out of the pantry. My daughter asked me to make the chocolate cake from the film. I found the recipe but making it would have required a good shop up to gather all of the ingredients. I went on the hunt for a more simple but still decadent recipe and found the perfect one from Leave room for dessert.....

the in between

Hello, how busy are the days! In between being out and about, at school and at work there are the in between times when the girls can make up there own games, I can wander (wonder) around with my camera, and we can think about what we we would like to do next, be it running a lazy finger along the spines in the bookshelf, baking a cake or making plans of some sort. These in between times are the times when I think about how quickly time passes, how the girls are growing and of all the things we enjoy together. Two baby teeth lost and two new adult teeth growing in their place x.
