35/365 - Deluge


(Canon 50D, Canon 85mm f/1.8 Lens)
Decided to go for a drive around dinner time and thought I would head to Elwood Beach which is probably about 10 mins away in the hope of catching a sunset or something. I caught something and got caught in massive, torrential rain. The rain was soooo hard and visibility was almost zero. I, along with many other drivers, had to pull over to the side of the road and tried to wait it out. It lessened so I drove off the main Beach Road and onto Point Ormond Drive where I too the two purple-toned images through my car window. Long story short - I left home at around 6pm and did not arrive home until after 10.30pm! The flooding was horrendous. Traffic congestion was amazing. But I did manage to take loads and loads of photos! (always an upside!)

34/365 - Waiting for the bus....


(Apple iPhone, Hipstamatic Application)
 A whole new world, not only High School but Public Transport travel! Here she is waiting for the bus and I think that as I saw her driving away on the bus - I felt more sad than I did seeing my baby off to High School on her first day. It was such a poignant scene. She was nervous and a tad anxious but now she is an old hand! Doesn't take long!

33/365 - First Day of High School


(Canon 50D, Canon 85mm f/1.8 Lens)
First day of High School and nerves were around. 

The photo on the left was as relaxed as I could get her - in fact, I felt very lucky to get a photo at all!

The photo on the right tells you how she felt when she got home! The school is big compared to her primary school, in fact, there are almost as many kids just in Year 7 that were at her old school! And it is all girls - such a big change and gosh she has coped well with the changes. (touch wood!)

32/365 - Fish & Chips at Port Melbourne


(Canon 50D, Canon 85mm f/1.8 Lens)

An outing to Port Melbourne with just the oldest and the youngest. We spent a pleasant time walking around the docks and had fish & chips by the water. Managed to take this image - you wouldn't think that we were in the middle of the city would you?

31/365 Floral Textures....

A beautiful flower treated to a lovely textural overlay. I was experimenting with textures and am really happy with the outcome.

30/365 Cupcakes, Vintage Scales and old Straw


(Canon 50D, Canon 85mm 1.8 Lens)

I love colour and I love vintage. Here you can see my favourite vintage kitchen scales that I picked up at a Trash and Treasure market for oh, about a dollar! I adore them to tell you the truth and collect kitchen scales (sort of!).

These cupcakes I made myself bought from my local supermarket and I also bought the old red/white wax paper straws from eBay. Love them. My kids were surprised that you could actually drink liquid through paper!

29/365 - Mikki Love
