for now

dipping my toe in here to say that I'm taking a break from my blog....for now
when will I be back? I'm not sure
there's much on the horizon. a big trip to plan, work to complete, photos to take, things to create
you can keep up to date with me on instagram...I'm still posting there daily. and it's so much fun. just passed 200 days!
I will be back, but for now I'm floating past....

more instagram

my 2013 instagram project continues. I'm surprised and pleased at how integral it has become to my day. and how so many people are interested in my little project. I love to receive comments each day or just an acknowledgement that someone likes my daily photo both on instagram and Facebook - lovely. you can also check them out on flickr - follow the link from just there on the right. here's another collage from earlier this year. must get some more done to show you - or have a look on instagram @KerrieBowles

hello. I've been absent from here for such a long time. why? I'm not really sure. I look at my blog every day - it's my home page after all - and think I must write something or post a few pictures, but don't. is it the lure of instagram and Facebook which are so immediate and a quick fix? ...maybe. will my blog continue? at this point in time I can't really answer that. I waiver from yes it must go on, to no it's had it's day, time to move on.....
for now I'm still here but there's so much to do and fit in to every day. and that's a good thing. lots of creativity, lots of inspiration, lots of fun. good things. 
I'm feeling so inspired by photography at the moment. it's a passion I've always had. my new camera and gear are steering me in new directions. there's so much to explore and it's so much fun.
here's a few shots from recent days. straight out of the camera. no adjustments or filters. macro, love.
it's nice to be back xx

new lens moments

I bought myself a new lens a couple of months ago - the next one on my wish list - a macro lens. just starting to explore it's capabilities. one morning this week I was a tad late for work because I spotted this fly on my bench dining on some sugar, and I just had to get some shots. this is one of my favourites. look at those eyes....and can you see the crystal of sugar about to be devoured? I think I love this lens....!

a little photography

today I've been inside playing around with photos when I should have been elsewhere taking photos on another photography weekend adventure. but the rain (again) put a stop to that. at least I've seen a little sun today and had time to play in Lightroom and Photoshop. this effort is for Kim Klassen's Beyond Beyond year long course I'm doing. I think I'm becoming a Kim her way of teaching and inspirations.
hello autumn!
 my favourite time of the year

tripping the light fantastic.....

this past week I've been out tripping the light fantastic most nights........sort of! no, I haven't been outing dancing the nights away (although that would be wonderful!)
we have been out and about with my DSLR, some lights, black clothing and a sense of adventure to see what we can do.....oh this is so much fun! these are a few of the results, but there's lots more!
