Photography Blog – through the lens

I’m lacking in photographic motivation at the moment, (even though I am constantly surrounded by it) but my travel photos – at the very least – will be shared.

Which also has been sorely neglected. But I’ve decided that this is my year and I plan on promoting the shit out if it   like crazy (and working really hard making beautiful stuffs jewellery).  You’ll find Facebook, Twitter and website links on the blog if you so desire following along.

Tassie Salmon

There’s nothing better than fresh fish and salmon is one of my favourites.
I was hoping for a gourmet pie, but no they were cold. Take home only.
Then there was the bbq, nope, didn’t fancy a normal snag in bread, even with local celebrity serving.
Oh look, what’s that?
The Huon Salmon stall. Bbq fillet or burger.
I took the burger and grabbed a coffee from inside.
A good thing the burger was nice, cause the coffee was very average, even with two shots.

Enjoy. I did.

Australia Day 2014

Yesterday was Australia Day, Jan 26th. Still a day of contention and BS. I’m not going to comment on any of that.
Each year at Kingston Beach – 30 mins north from us and 10 mins south from Hobart – they have the “Day on the Beach”.
Years ago it was all about the sand sculptures – which were amazing – now it’s a fun day out, beach cricket and volleyball, thong races (inflatable thongs, aka flip flops) with all the food, drinks and  entertainment you can poke a stick at.
Hubby wanted to go along this year and while interested I didn’t the idea of walking for miles after finding a car park. Problem solved.  Five kilometres up the road is the Sports Centre with oodles of parking. Bring in the double decker buses and for a small donation, park and ride with not traffic congestion.
In the end it was just myself and mr 9 who went.
I spent some time at the market along the road (gotta scout for prospective stall holders) while Mr 9 seemed happy to learn volleyball. And that’s where he spent most of the day. I had it easy.
Lots of pictures, met up with hubby and mr 14 who brought the bike for a spin, was sighted by, but missed meeting a fellow blogger and Hobartian (we’ve confirmed it was me she saw), got sunburnt, a long wait for the return bus, and finished off the day with a lovely bbq at my parents.

Kanji names

At the market today we had the pleasure of this gentleman who wrote your name, or whatever word you wanted, in Kanji.
So quick, precise and neat. Right as you wait.
It was all free, but his donation container was overflowing. And not just with coins.
I got all our names done.
