Favourite Things Friday

Absent again this week.  Things have been a bit hectic and a bit crappy.  The crappiness hasn't been helped by my attitude I think so I have pulled myself out of it, got the old chip off my shoulder and sucked it up as they say.  Life's to short to worry about things that you can't change.


My POM is winging it's way round the world for Country Hart which is very exciting.  If you would like to see what I designed here it is. Sorry you can't yet.  If you were quick this morning you would have seen it but I wasn't thinking.  

Now that I have blatantly advertised I will head on to My Favourite Things Friday.

My favourite thing today is photo's.  I think I am one of the worlds worst photographer's my photo's hardly ever live up to my expectations but every now and again I take one does.


This one was taken at the zoo, the kids were eating lunch and decided to go and sit here while I was finishing my coffee I loved the way the sunlight played on their hair.  This one is on my fridge and I see it everyday.

I don't know why I like this one it is just one that makes me smile.  I am going to get it put on a canvas one day.  It is at Mount Lofty Botanic Park and it was freezing cold.  


Its the sunlight in this one that gets me.  This is helping my son with a school project.  


This is one from my old photo's of mum from my Pop's house. It is her and a neighbour and it just has always struck a cord.

Want to see more FTF head on over to Mrs P.

Beautiful photos Amanda. I love the Mount Lofty shot of the Squid too...she looks so tiny in amongst all that nature.

Ditto the great zoo shot.

I love photos because they capture time.

Your photos are beautiful Amanda and I can see why you love the one of your children. I love the one of your daughter in the park...it does have a 'special something' about it and would be gorgeous on a canvas. I think your photography is pretty impressive.
Great FTF!

The photos are great, thank you for sharing. AS for missing out on the advertisement, bummer but I'll wait patiently. lol

Hope the funk (bad mood) passes soon enough. I've had plenty like that and it's usualy doing exactly what you did that helps me get past.

I love them all! I think the real key to good photography is take tons of pictures, and every now and then you'll hit the jackpot. You surely did with these!

I love the pictures! The one of the kids at the zoo is really nice with the light .. I agree with Mindy .. take a bazillion and you'll definitely get some great ones.

I love all of your photos - great idea of putting that one on a canvas! I think you have a great eye for photography - I think it's very hard to take pictures of people, but your pictures really are stunning. Thanks for sharing with us.

Your photos are great, Amanda! I especially love the one of your Mum.

Hope your weekend brings much happiness to make up for the not-so-fabulous week you've had. Happy FTF! ☺

You MUST put that photo on a canvas it is just perfect. The perspective draws you eyes right to Squid who is totally in the moment and natural. Lovely shot....who said you were a bad photographer?? They are wrong! :-)
