Midweek Moment #32

I’ve been working hard on my novel for the past couple of weeks, so I was going to use one of last week’s photos for our MM. However, today I felt the urge to step away from the computer and take a long walk with my canines and camera. It’s never easy lugging a...

Midweek Moment #31

Just as dawn was breaking yesterday morning, I went down to Sculptures by the Sea at Cottesloe Beach. With the ocean as smooth as glass and the previous day's footsteps in the sand having been swept away, the beach was as tranquil as I’d ever seen it. However, it was...

Midweek Moment #30

I chose this photo for Midweek Moment for no reason other than I thought it was pretty. I loved the colour of these mauve flowers from the next-door neighbour's plumbago. I took a few photos in vivo, then cut some to bring inside and snapped a few more: Whereas my...

Midweek Moment #29

Despite giving my camera a couple of outings this week, none of the photos I took jumped out at me for a 'Midweek Moment'. So, once again, it was a last-minute job—this time in the garden at about 6:45 yesterday morning. The hot summer has taken its toll and our roses...

Midweek Moment #28

I went out with my camera during the week, but nothing I captured took my fancy for a Midweek Moment. So, this morning before school, I interrupted my son during his violin practice. He seemed annoyed at first, then bemused as to why I'd want to take photos of him,...

Midweek Moment #27

As I was preparing this week's Midweek Moment, it struck me that although we live in a colossal city of concrete and bitumen and over 1.5 million people, we're never far from a walk along the coast, around a lake, by the river, or through the bush. Our climate usually...

Midweek Moment #26

Monique and I have gone with simplicity this week. My photo is of leaves from a yucca plant in our backyard. We planted half a dozen of these about ten years ago. At the time, they were about knee-high but, unlike most plants in our garden, they have thrived and now...

Midweek Moment #25

I’ve been without a camera this week, and I feel as if my third eye is missing. But after a few visits to the beach, the photos were looking rather salt-streaked, so I’ve taken it in for a clean. This photo is from my archives—it’s the first photo I ever took in...

Midweek Moment #24

Summer and school holidays mean longer, slower days, so of an evening, I've been taking myself down to the beach and trying out long-shutter speeds on my camera. This, however, has been largely unsuccessful. I lost my thongs to a rogue wave on the first visit, and the...

Midweek Moment #23

Summery Midweek Moments from both of us today: I took this photo of a frangipani in our pool. The flower was already struggling in the heat and chlorinated water, but I still liked the photo. Maybe it's the detail: the colour of the petals, the tiny water droplets,...

Midweek Moment #22

Welcome back to Midweek Moment 2016!  Despite the holidays and the festive atmosphere, we've both been reflective in our choice of photo for the week. I took my photo on our recent trip to Queensland, while on a boat out to the Great Barrier Reef. On land, the sky...

Midweek Moment #21

Monique and I wish all of our Midweek Moment readers a joyous Christmas and a safe end to 2015. We'll be back in the New Year with more moments and photos. Thank you all for reading, liking, and commenting on these posts, and for enjoying our moments as much as we...

Midweek Moment #20

This is our twentieth MM—it certainly doesn't feel like that long since we started! Since we've begun, I find I'm noticing more around me, the little details, and I'm always on the lookout for something interesting, or seeing it in a different way. It's also helped me...

Midweek Moment #19

Monique and I have been out and about with our cameras this week, photographing things with wings: With school finished for the year, and before the mad rush to Christmas, I've snatched a few days away to write. I’m out of range of internet and mobile (I've slipped...

Midweek Moment #18

Our daughter is the cook in our house, and I’m proud to say she does a much better job of it than her mother. She farewelled a long-time school friend who is returning to Japan this coming weekend, so she made lamingtons, because they’re Australian. She also made...
