Photo Challenge: Weight(less)


In response to the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Weight(less)

These shoes have been hanging on the powerlines by the train station since before I moved to the neighbourhood. It was the first thing I thought of when I saw this week’s prompt: share a photo of something marked by its weight. They still turn in the breeze…




Summer’s Here!!!

And the Poinciana’s gone CRAZY! Which is just amazing of course. If Jacaranda is the tree for Spring and Frangipani for Summer, Poinciana is to bridge the gap between 🙂




I’ve been told the reason the trees are so packed with bright red flowers is because we haven’t had any rain yet to knock the flowers down. It would be nice to have some rain though, especially for the farmers in regional areas. Summer is great, but if it’s not flooding, it’s drought.

Anyway, I found the last dregs of the Jacaranda blooms:


The Frangipanis are getting started too…




And I found some surprise sunflowers! They’re on the fenceline of an apartment block, so I’m not sure who tends to them, but they look great!


I love walking around my neighbourhood to see the change of the plants and the seasons. We don’t have ”proper” seasons in Brisbane but we do get some beauty from nature to tell the turn of time. I really should post my photos of flowers more, or just whatever I fancy taking a photo of. I love seeing other people’s photos, like on Midwestern Plants or Tea and Paper or To Search and Find Happiness Everyday (I’m sorry if I missed anyone!), so I’m going to do it too 🙂

I took these photos Tuesday afternoon, 18 November 2014.
