Last Chance to Practise!

The new theme for this week is...
CELEBRATION!
7. The sheer almost perfect symmetry of a moth. Such a fragile beauty, that's not around for long, a reason to Celebrate Life.

6. “Whenever there is a reason for celebration my husband brings me flowers - my birthday, our anniversary, the day he proposed. Yesterday for my birthday he gave me the most beautiful arrangement ever with stunning reds and purples – I couldn’t wait to capture them on camera! For me, flowers have become a real symbol of celebration and I love photographing them … they are a celebration of life!”


1. Our front lawn - inches deep in water - what a great reason to celebrate! I know one little person certainly did!

5. Celebrating the festive season with all things delicious...mmmmmmmmm . Sometimes the simple things in life are the best things!

11. Bubbles of joy celebrating a bush Christmas... this picture encapsulates the pure celebration that is children

techo bits: 50 mm fixed lens, P mode 800 ISO.

10. what better way to celebrate than with sparkler in hand.

2. Celebrate Summer Holidays

9.celebrate christmas treats..

natural light.P function ISO 200..



4. What's left after the celebration?

Well - this is what I reckon:
The hanging ornament is Tiddly's, the gorgous big eyed beauty is POppy (Of course!), the bare bum is my boy Toby Mac, the little munchkin looking in the toy box is Kirsty's dd #2, and the other three are one's Kirsty took of her number one DD after the deadline - but I told her to put em up anyway coz they were stunning and were perfect for the wonder theme. And of course, the beautiful lady with the curl - our one and only resident witch!

Looking great girls. Had the best photo for last week and forgot all about putting it up. Ahh now Chirstmas is nearly over hopefully I can get back on track.

Loving the water shot, and I was going to upload a pic of our dam at the moment, got an early Christmas Pressie (RAIN).

Hmmmm will have to think now.

Donna said...

Oooh - how beautiful number 3! And I love the wide variation in photos we are coming up with! Hey Nic - don't worry if it's a water shot - it will still be unique and beautiful! You can still put up your wonder photo too - as its really only a practise fortnight anyway and we'd all love to see it!
