Afraid to try and explore new things. Changes good for others, but for me it means creativity familiarizing new things and adapting to to changes can be overbearing. The changes are inevitable because no one can stop it. Moving forward and facing the challenges as each brand new day presents without worry and fear, moving on...

Recent walk up the Bluff

I found myself one afternoon driving pass this Lookout.   Some will probably think twice before climbing up that bluff for safety reasons which I might add that I actually didn't, it was well worth my time.

White Flowers

Some of the whites I have on my collections.

I first received my Nikon Camera as a gift from a friend, I was so excited, couldn’t wait to try it out. When it was switched on, I realised I didn’t know anything about using it or taking good photos. This was my first closeup shot “Whiteman’s beard” during the day. Photo #1
Photo #2. Could not remember the name of this particular one. During my first photography trials, the close-up shots were the only ones I was interested in capturing.
This particular image is been shared, so I will not take credit for the shot but I just love it.
These I have grown in my backyard for as long as I can remember.

Most times the work commitments take up the time so I end up slacking off from socialising on media. Hobbies are forgotten entirely. Neglecting what I love been around things that makes one happy, nature.

Exploring my backyard

It was one of the Central Queensland’s most popular holiday destination island. Few years ago Company from Sydney bought a islands resort, said to have a masterplan approved to turn it into a $6 million development approved with golf course, shops accommodation, casino and marina. That didn’t happen but there is still one other motel at the other end called Hideaway for bookings and holidays. One day trip was enough for me on a 30 mins boat ride.

Freedom Flyer Docked on the beach to off load and pick up the the passengers on GKI. Find out the time table at Roselyn Bay or google it. After we got off the boat my work college her mother plus her boyfriend went to their friends place where he lend us his old trail truck just to go over the other side of the island, my first shot while climbing up the mountain was the coloured mushroom
Learning how to use my Nikon D7100. Further ahead there was a lookout overlooking the main land Emu park and Yeppoon and its no wonder my friends mother said it felt like leaving Australia. We all had a good laughed about that. With Laurels orange hat I asked her if I could take a shot of her.

This part of the island was home of the goats running wild and feral. “Estimated over 600 goat on the island, they also cause enormous problems of erosion with their hooves that does the damages.

Goats we spoked and were running away.

I love this shore, a seagull with the waves as a background.

Happy New Year!

Rain, won’t you come another day?.

On the last day of work, I had worked out my schedule for the Christmas break up until the 4th January, 2021. Friday- Sunday (25-27th December chillout. Monday and Tuesday, mow the lawn and do some gardening. Wednesday and Thursday clean the house, then Friday to Sunday, rest and be back on Monday for work.

Without checking my local weather Forecast, I was so certain, I will finish my gardening on Tuesday. Waking up early on Tuesday morning, I looked out the window, it was a bad news all around, raining and it didn’t stop for a whole day.

Since the weather forecast was raining through to next week, I thought, I might as well buy some seeds and try planting them in summers sub tropical Climate weather and just pray that they will grow😊. My main fear was for the tinny seeds and that they will be washed away.

Some of the Flower seeds I soared

I also feared that they will never grow. Now, who plants flowers in Summers heat?. Lot of you are probably shaking your heads now. The way that I see it is that you will never know unless you try it☺️. So all I got to do now is wait and see if they will grow. Cheers for now, I hope that I can see you all next time with my backyard 🪴 results.

Canarvon Gorge walks — 2slowspeeds

Visiting Canarvon Gorge, a national park 740kms north west of Brisbane,  had remained on our to-do list ever since we arrived in Queensland over 30 years ago as other places took priority.  What we got to see last week was out of this world but we would have like to have seen more with younger […]
