7 photos in 7 days / Cooking; Creativity / creativity / finding your passion / Flow / flowers

Last Thursday I suggested our U3A Course participants take on a creative challenge of their choice, to do something creative each day for 7 days. I couldn’t convince them to do the 30 day challenge though. We meet again in the morning and I am looking forward to finding out what they have been up to.

My 7th photo is shot of our morning tea tomorrow: Mini blueberry muffins!

Today’s photo, below, is of a canvas art painting I have in my office/creative space. I find it so relaxing to sit in my comfy chair and lose myself within the painting. It seems to relax and energise at the same time. Every time I look at it I see some different detail or how different light shows up the different colours. The image at the top was done using a colouring-in iPad app. I enjoyed experimenting with the different shade options.

I decided to divert from the flower theme of the last few days. Today I took a photo of one of my favourites – a cup and saucer I bought at Westminster Abbey gift shop in 2008. It was my first ever trip to London and I was in love with the history and architecture. I am also a fan of miniatures and fine china. It all came together in the gift shop where I bought four of these with different designs.

7 photos in 7 days / Australia / Blogging / flowers

Lesson 101 – always check the memory card is in the camera! Twice now I have forgotten – hopefully I have mastered that one now!

This plant below was a gift to me from fellow blogger QP & Eye who I was lucky enough to meet due to COVID19 putting a halt to her travels throughout West Australia for several weeks earlier this year. It was great to meet Linda and her husband and then follow up with a coffee in town before they were able to move to another region. I love reading about Linda’s travels throughout Australia.

Well, I headed out with my camera this morning hoping to get some shots of wildflowers. They were a bit hard to find given that it is still Winter. Anyway I took some pics of tiny flowers only to find that I left the SD card in my computer – so NO photos!

When I got home I asked my neighbour if I could take some photos of the flowers in her front garden and she kindly agreed. So here we are:

finding your passion / Just for fun / Nature

I am leading a University of the Third Age group in a Course called “Unleashing Your Creative Spirit”. On the first week I suggested a 30 Day Creativity Challenge where we would each do something creative everyday for 30 days. I didn’t get many takers unfortunately.

I tried again today (Week 6) and we compromised to do a 7 day challenge. Participants can choose their own topics out of a range of suggested ones. I agreed that I would take part and would commit to doing one photo a day using my digital camera rather than my phone. I recently enrolled in a Photography Course but have only just started.

Tonight as I was putting out the bins for collection I was captivated by the evening sky and raced in to get my camera. I am sure I will do better when I learn how to use it (at least I hope so!). So anyway, here is my photo for today:

I think there are some aliens in my neighbour’s garden!

Just popped in to say hello!

I haven’t written for a while. I keep meaning to and have had lots of ideas for posts (can’t remember what they were now!)

There is a lot going on at present. I am leading two University of the Third Age courses (philosophy discussion group and learning about creativity). I have also signed up to an online photography course – Digital Photography masterclass. Hopefully in time you will see some improvement in my photos.

For now I will include a few photos I took with my iPhone – spur of the moment shots. I love to see the trees in winter with no foliage but the bright blue sky beyond.
