Monochrome Madness 2-2

Good morning from a rather chilly Hastings day.  Cyclone Pam has no hit the Chatham Island which lies to the East of New Zealand.  They have been hit a lot harder than we have and there is a lot more damage.  Vanuatu is so devastated and desperately need help

Anyway onto my entry this week for Leanne Cole PHOTOGRAPHY.  Blackberries.  Rather appropriate as autumn is now here.  These were taken at my parents house.  Mum used to do blackberry jam every year but this year the blackberries are going straight into the freezer.  She doesn’t have any energy to do anything.  Or the memory of how to do it either.

But this also brings back my childhood of wandering around our new subdivision of empty plots fill of black berry bushes and picking large juicy berries and eating them warm from the sun.  Not to mention all the scratches we got as well.  That ended once the area was developed.

A Photo a Week: Up Close and Personal

Good morning from another bright and sunny day.  Yesterday was really uncomfortable with the heat and humidity.  We had the nations high of 29 degrees celsius but with the humidity it was worse.  My wonderful son did some more gardening for my parents again as part of our Christmas present to them and he really suffered.    But the garden is slowly getting some sort of order in it.  A lot more is needed.

I spent the time doing a video of my father working his lathe which I am trying to sell for him.  Plus I grabbed a few photos.  My mother is so bemused when I wander around with my iPhone taking photos.  As you can see.

I have finally figured out how to do a gallery.  So much quicker for me.

This week Nancy is getting up close and personal so here are a few photos from yesterday.
