  • New eye on the evening

    I brought home an old/new Nikon lens from my trip back to Chicago to see my family last week. I feel rich with this addition, and took it out far a walk around…

  • Neighbors

    I stopped to see these heifers and steers that I pass each morning and evening on the road yesterday afternoon. They were pretty curious, unlike the stunning purebred Brahmans up the road…

  • Two and a half hours at the show

    It was all about the kids on Saturday at the Inverell Show, from the cattle to horse events, puppet shows, pig racing and the motocross bikes that had the boys, young and…

  • Wet woods

    It is dry again. Hot, but thankfully not that blistering ridiculousness we had a few weeks ago before the rain. I went outside tonight and scented smoke on the wind. I was…

  • Today we went to the show

    We went down to the Bundarra Show this morning. The poultry were back after many years, and there were some fine birds there. The showjumping was horrible and we saw two riders…

    My camera is acting up again, and tonight, in an attempt to clean it, I accidentally smudged the CMOS sensor with grease or something. I’m more than a little cranky with myself.…

  • The day that changed everything

    Iris’s father said he would be right back. Said to wait for him outside the restrooms, and the entire family sat and waited, and waited. He didn’t come back. Instead, a staff…

  • Anthill

    I’ve got a thing about anthills and their mysteries underground. I took this one in the 114 degree heat this afternoon, out in the paddock. Please like & share:

  • Poise

    Scene from Australia Day, 2014. I love this photo because of the earnest expression of the young girl in the white dress. On a day of frothy dresses and snags on the grill,…

  • Introduction

    Somebody, it was my husband actually, suggested that I start a blog. I immediately rebelled, as I often do without thinking things through. “I’m not like that,” I argued. I should say,…
