The day when I forgot how to work my camera

I must have been particularly tired this evening as we went for a family walk to the park.


We have been trying to make the most of the lovely summer we are having and going for a few bike rides to the park.



I don’t know what happened, but I forgot how to work my camera, I knew I wanted this photo frozen, but it was coming out too dark, I think I took about 50 photos before I finally remembered how to change the settings and got this one…


Kids on swings….I struggle to capture what I want. I see an image in my mind but it doesn’t always work.



I am sooooo disappointed that this was blurry 🙁


It just wasn’t working for me!

Then I forgot how to change my settings back, and I was getting so frustrated and kept missing some fantastic expressions all because I couldn’t remember what I was doing. Should have switched to auto!



Finally caught one….


Nope only fingers in focus….try again




I see you

Dirty feet

So I came away from the walk a little dejected and annoyed at myself and figured out what I was doing once I got home….

think I needed an early night!

Inside a box

Who needs toys when you have a giant cardboard box?

After the new washing machine was installed we were left with a huge cardboard box which turned into a cubby house, which then got turned upside down into a play box!

Going to get you mum

I have a photo of myself and my brother playing in a cubby house box, what strange object have you ever turned into a toy?

On the weekend

I had been looking forward to the Easter weekend to spend some time with my family and friends, so when the weekend finally arrived what did I do?

Fell in a heap with a migrane.  I got up Friday morning head thumping and stomach rolling and went straight back to bed.

I have a tendancy to do this, even on our honey moon I fell ill, I don’t know if it’s my body’s way of taking a break after being go, go, go all the time.

So we headed out Saturday to take the kids to Myrtle Park, but it rained and was freezing!!!  So on Monday we tried again, this time we went closer to home to the Tailrace park and it was a beautiful day. I almost didn’t take the camera but at the last minute ran back inside to grab it.


I Spy


My daughter decided she didn’t want any photos of her taken so she ran away at every opportunity I had the camera pointed in her direction.

It also helped that she was in a maze.

Running Away



Just to prove I was there, I asked my husband to take some pictures as evidence.

I was there too

Playing in the grass

After a play we went for a walk along the boardwalk where you can view the river, although the river is just mud and not much of a view, so I just took more sneaky photos.



The little one started to get tired so we began to move on,


Somewhere along here my daughter decided she would like to be in a picture (finally)


So she posed

Now she wants a photo

A few more

Lovely light




So glad I went back inside to grab the camera!
