I have worked a lot lately - yucky shifts where I start too late in the day to be productive and finish too late to want to do anything except eat dinner and go to bed. When I have had spare or available time I waste it on Facebook or watching movies. The good news is I have watched a few movies I have wanted to see for a while. Ted with Mark Walberg is not as stupid as I thought it would be, Red Dawn is an American rip off of Tomorrow When the War Began (ok this wasn't a great Australian movie, but the books are awesome). I tried to watch Paperboy with Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman....but it was sooooo boring.
I have not taken many photos lately, but those I have taken have been pretty good. I wonder if it is because I know what I want before I take the photo instead of taking 100s and hoping I get a good result.
This photo is probably my favorite this year, I was ready to count my loss on another failed sunset, I had my tripod folded and was ready to go home, when the sky changed colour and this was the result. I think I am safe in saying my sunset voodoo is over.

The challenges this month are Planes, Trains and Automobiles and Green. I found out there was a tram museum in Brisbane. There where three trams on display on the day I went. Trams operated in Brisbane between 1885 - 1969, having lived in Melbourne for 10 years I miss trams and was please to get a photo of these.
Green was a harder challenge....needed a lot of thought not to be a boring photo, after a lot of thought and dismissal of ideas I settled on the science experiment to create a volcano - bicarbonate soda and vinegar. (and green food colouring) Grace was my willing assistant.
These a few random shots from the last few weeks. I will get my mojo back soon I hope.

Daughter # 2 is off to Europe in 2 weeks...I think this might have a bit to do with my funny mood. I am very excited for her, I am also very nervous for her. I have asked her to send me a photo a day (an idea I borrowed from a friend who does this all the time with her daughter). #3 is yet to commit to this idea. She will do it I hope.
