Color Splash Sunday - Hallowen/Autumn


Since Halloween isn't really something that happens around here I went out to take photos of Autumn. While playing with the kids in the leaves I had the idea of making a huge pile and sleeting one leave to select. This is what I come up with.

So head over to Amy's blog Artistically Amy for more color splash photos.

Foto Story Friday - Planting a Tree

PhotoStory FridayI don't think I have likned up with photo story friday, er remind me its not firday anymore, But I am home alone, Mr Mar SR at work and the kids are with there grandmum, pluss I am sick, the reson I desided to get the kids away to rest, by the way my head is feeling I am glad they arn't here, But it has given me a chance to put up some photos, I realy need to get back into blogging.

I am doing a Blog hope, for every 10th comment, every 5ed follower and every 1000 visit to my blog I will palnt a tree, Now since I don't have room in a apparment to plant a tree, I planted one when I was in New Zealand on holdiay, I planted it am my mums, I chose a Macadamia tree, I LOVE macadmia nuts. Getting  hammer and hitting them so hard till the shell pops off, then eating the nice nut inside. MMMMM, so what better tree to chose, plus I guess it will stop a bit of carbon out put by just walking to the tree and getting the nuts once it carry then driving over to the shop to buy them.

Then since my mum has a prity big orchard we had to find a place to put it. This was the most open place we could find. The trees to the side are not dead, but since it is spring time they are just starting to wake up. Oh, its going to be getting so nice a warm over there now, and here well yeh it is just getting cold, Though I do love the color of all the trees right now.

Digging the whol, LOL so I start to dig, getting the right width and the right depth, Just for the shovel to hit somting, I think GRATE I got  the off run form the sugege thing, so I keep diging to try and figer out what it is. It was rotten rock, yes rock can rot, it just gets all wird. So I get to start all over again...
  Once I had finnished the second howl, Having it big enough we put the tree in, then since I deffently did not do a good job of putting the earth on a nice pile I had a hard time putting the earth in around the tree, at least I had Mr Mar Jr there to help me. It was more hard work then I though. Only 11 more or so to go...

Color Splash Sunday - Eyes

HI all, I am back home now, so off onto doing my photo blog again. I actually missed playing with my photos and reading blogs. We  had a Grate time Over in New Zealand the surprise that we gave my mum worked GRATE, she did not have any idea at all what was going on. I hope to get a few pictures up, from over there, but we probably took 3141 photos, so allot to go through, I am just making a short movie (about an hour)  for the family from the trip over there, still wishing I could get adobe premier again, that is the program I used at school to make movies with and I loved it. Maybe one day I'll have the money for it.

Anyways, back onto this blog, I took this photo in a the train on the way to my grandparents in June i think it was, I love the way Ms Mar is looking and her piercing blue eyes on it, I had edit this photo AGES ago always hoping for the theme to come up, then about a month ago Amy asked for ideas for color splash photos, my first idea of course was eyes.

So head over to Amy's blog Artistically Amy for more color splash photos.

Color Splash Sunday - Animals

When we Arrived in New Zealand we went to Old McDonald's farm, its grate for the kids. They can feed the animals, do pony rides and so on. This peacock decided to do a whole show for us (well actually his lady friends on the hill behind us) It got so close to me that when it tured it actually hit me with its feathers.

I am hoping to get back to Posting next week, we fly back home on the 20th at midnight. So then I'll have time to do my pics again.

So head over to Amy's blog Artistically Amy for more color splash photos.
