A line across the sky

I was leaving the house late in the afternoon going to my Camera Club meeting and this is the sight that greeted me - I was very thankful I had my camera with me ;-)

I remember my Dad telling me when I was a kid that this was the 'mail run' going from one side of Australia to the other - I don't know if that is true, but every time I see it, I think "there goes the mail' ;-)

I would like to submit this photo for
Week #4 - 52 Photos Project - Movement
Week #39 - Our World Tuesday

I would also like to submit the following photo of my nephew's dog for
Foto Finish

Axel considers himself part of the family and will very often sit on one of the plastic chairs with every one else ;-)

Our World Tuesday

I recently discovered a few new photo blogs ...... well, new to me ;-)

Our World Tuesday is a blog "Where family-friendly bloggers share images of their world and tell us a little bit of the story about the place"

So here is my contribution ;-)

This photo was taken during a photo outing with the Port Adelaide Camera Club

Where We Meet - 52 Photos Project

We are into Week #3 for 52 Photos Project and the theme is 'Where We Meet'

I found it really hard to pick just one photo to depict this subject - I have several places where I love to catch up with family and friends, but I guess the one place I keep coming back to is HOME

I love it when we can all sit around the dining table and 
eat, drink and be merry.......
.... whether it is just the two of us .......

....... or a crowd ;-)

Of course, it is not really where you meet that is important ............. 
it is that you make time to do it ......

.......with close friends .....

..... with family.....

...... and with very dear friends you don't get to see very often

Check out the gallery HERE, there are some great pics ;-)

Lots of Photo Opportunities this Weekend ;-)

Boy, I have had a very busy few days!

On Saturday, it was my Great Nephew's 2nd Birthday and we had a family BBQ

To satisfy my baking urge, I made up some Mars Bar Slice to take - it was a real hit and I have been asked to bring some more for Zoe's 1st Birthday next month ;-)

Gorgeous little cupcakes ;-)

see group photo HERE

I took heaps of photos, and am only showing a select few here
