Sometimes it is worth stopping to notice the little things.
So I tried to do 10 on 10 this month but forgot to bring my camera with me! So I did 11 on 11 since 11 is my favourite number and then got carried away with my garden! I’m lucky to live with this beautiful garden in my backyard and to have two beautiful dogs to play in it with.

The perfect way to cheer me up is to have my camera in one hand, beautiful light around me and time to myself to wander. I love creating and sharing memories with photography, but to really explore and push myself photographically, I need moments to myself. This afternoon was one of those. There is a beautiful nursery on the way home called Acorn Nursery and one golden afternoon with time to spare, I took a wander through and used my adventure to try out the new techniques I had recently learnt. I want to share these with you because I think time to yourself really heals the soul and gives you a break from the fast paced lives we all lead these days. Not only does my camera bring a sense a calm to my life in times like that afternoon, but a good book, a great snack and just sunshine can also do it. I find my mood is incredibly reliant on the amount of sunshine I feel – I find it impossible to be too sad when the sun is out!
What do you like to do for a time out from the world?
Tübingen is a beautiful University town just outside Stuttgart, Germany, and is renowned for its punting boats. These boats, pictured above, are called Stocherkahn and are very similar to the Oxford and Cambridge punt boats. I had the pleasure of visiting this beautiful town because one of my friends went to University in this picturesque town.
Where have you been to see a friend and stumbled across a beautiful place off the beaten tourist track?
Finally we get to the first Thursday! On this afternoon, I enjoyed the Autumn leaves (which you’ve seen a few in the last posts), ice cream and catching up with family and friends. I met Mum & my godmother Libby in Lygon Street for the best ice cream in all of Melbourne, at Casa del Gelato. After, I met Cat and had lovely chats while eating frozen yoghurt. Then we found Courtney and wandered around, meeting Maree for Dumplings. The evening ended with seeing Driving Miss Daisy with my parents – I saw Mrs Potts & Darth Vader!
