A bit of a catch up....

Have had Jefferson here from Sydney for a month.  He originally came because we thought we were finalising on the house he and Natasha were buying for me, but due to council/boundary issues we terminated the contract.

We have now decided to build, and a few days ago we signed a contract on a block of land.

(Taken early one frosty morning from near the top of the block.  Click on photo to enlarge.  Mountain peak on left of photo is Quamby Bluff...a Deloraine icon)


Have also bought a new car which will be delivered next week.  Stay tuned for photos :)

I tried to get a nice photo of Jefferson and Marnie before they headed off for a bushwalk.

The result...
This is what happens to you when you live in Tasmania too long :)



So I made them pose for a slightly more normal one...
 
 
Enjoy your weekend!!

    There's a lot that can be done on smart phones to create special effects but sometimes nature is ALL the effect needed!

    1. Hi Bianca! Lovely to hear from you :)

      The photos were taken with a very old, basic, camera.

      I agree....nature in all its glory doesn't need any touch ups!! xx

  3. Gosh, deciding to build a house (and buying a new car!). That is a big step, and one with such creative potential. Your header photo looks very dramatic - I wouldn't want to live right next to that river! And your family look like good fun.

    1. Hi Christine! The noise from the spillway is certainly deafening at times. I wouldn't like to live in the house there...but some-one does!!

      My family can be quite a handful sometimes...I don't know where they get it from :)) xx
