One Word Photo Challenge: Fox

I finally found my way back to Jennifer Nichole Wells’ One Word Photo Challenge. This week she is asking for “Fox” and it made me immediately think of my horse back in the days. Horses of her color are called foxes in German. It’s that deep copper, that warm red of the color of the fur.

One Word Photo Challenge: Camera

Have I told you that I left my camera once at the airport on our way home from visiting friends in WA? I did… and I lost it. It never showed up anymore… I hope someone is happy with it now. Fortunately I took the card out and did not lose any pictures. That would have been even worse. And thankfully my friend did not send me the beautiful handmade (and Heartmade) strap yet.

My husband surprised me with a new camera soon after. He made my day then. It has traveled  a fair bit with me so far and it’s a good companion capturing all those beautiful moments for me. Needless to say that I’m much more careful now. I would even go as far as saying that I will never leave it behind anymore…

OWPC – Camel


It’s been a while since I was riding a camel but it was a good day. Out there, in the red sand of the Australian Outback. You can actually see Uluru (or also called Ayers Rock) in the background.

I was never aware that there are camels in Australia other than in Zoos but then found out that Australia actually has the biggest number of purebred camels in the world (see here).

One Word Photo Challenge – Bird

I have not participated in this fantastic photo challenge for a while and only just realized it. If you have never heard of the OWC by Jennifer Nichole Wells, then you should definitely head over and check it out. Not only her One Word Challenge but also the Color My World one are fantastic.

I thought this picture might actually combine both of them, although… it’s not really Olive Green… but let’s just pretend it is, shall we?


One Word Photo Challenge – Summer

We’re not there just yet, but we are getting closer by the minute. The ocean is still cold, refreshing 15C, but the days are getting warmer and warmer, sometimes, like on Monday, even hot. I can’t wait for summer. I’m so ready for it and I cherish every nice and warm day we get at the moment, knowing that the next one might as well be pretty chilly again still.

Hugh’s Photo Challenge: Week 5 – Pair

pairsYou know that feeling when you crack open an egg? You sure do… Now imagine you suddenly see two egg yolks. A twin egg basically… a pair of yolks. How often does that happen? When it first happens to me I had to grab the camera and take this picture. I thought it was a one off.

But then I continued using the eggs of that 12egg carton and guess what: All of them had two yolks! And then I started using a fresh one and again, for the first six eggs, they all came in pairs. 18 twin eggs… I was actually thinking they were doing it on purpose. Kind of breading twin eggs. For whatever reason.

But then it stopped. No more twin eggs, no more pairs. I guess the eggs might have come from one chicken. One chicken with the tendency to have twins. Who knows?

I know, Hugh, you chose a picture of eggs as well. I had to laugh when I saw yours as I knew right away which picture I wanted to post when I saw the topic.

Head over to Hugh’s blog to see more pictures of pairs soon or to check out the previous Photo Challenges.


I love looking at the stars. Unfortunately I’m not a good enough photographer to capture them well enough to display here. Where we live there’s also too much light pollution to see them properly. While we were on our road trip though I was able to gaze up from time to time and really enjoy the beauty of those diamonds in the sky.

We kind of decided to create our own little stars in the backyard by putting up some… well, let’s call them Christmas lights. If our pets don’t push over the solar cells during the day the hedge in the back lights up with heaps of little lights looking as if we managed to bring the stars into our backyard. Combined with a full moon it ends up being a really nice thing to see…
