Prompt: Fork

Here's a collection of forks I gathered up from the cutlery drawer.

Prompt: Yourself


I was dreading this one, hate having my photo taken and I try and avoid it if I can, so this photo is about the best you’ll get.

So while I was playing around with filters I tried my hand at merging photos. I’ve started taking shots of different textures so I have a gallery of them to use as backgrounds or foregrounds. Here’s a few different shots using my half face and some textures.

This one’s a bit creepy.

I missed yesterday's prompt.
But here's today's, the corner of a gorgeous wrought iron railing around a verandah of the most amazing house I was working at today.

Prompt: Something You Saw

Well I missed yesterday's prompt, "Delicious", actually I ate it. I made scrummy gourmet hamburgers with Turkish buns and crisp salad and mayo. I was so hungry I ate it, completely forgetting to take a pic. Never mind, I'm sure I'll miss other prompts during the year.

Today's prompt "Something you saw" was dictated by the rather large bag of peeled garlic I saw in the fridge (which is still in the lounge room by the way). So I minced it up and bottled it and now I have about 6 months worth of garlic to keep me going. Nothing better than coming home after work and chucking a few things in a frypan along with some garlic for a quick meal, it's such a time saver.

This is how it's done if you are interested.

Pull all the cloves of garlic from the bulb and soak them in water over night. This makes it easy to peel them. Mince them up using a food processor or mini chopper thingy, I used my cuisineart mini chopper/grinder makes light work of it. Then add enough good quality extra virgin olive oil to bind it together, fill you jars and leave in the fridge. All done!

Prompt: Street

It's uninspiring I know, but after a long day of work (7.5 hours) in temps in the 40's, very high humidity and no air conditioning this was all I could manage.

Prompt: Mine

Struggled a bit with this one. Couldn't really find anything of mine that I thought was interesting enough to take a shot of, so I cheated a bit and decided that a a memory was something that belonged to me and I have wonderful memories of a holiday in Bali. This was along the road where the villa we stayed in was.

Today's prompt was Today. So I just took a photo of a Christmas tree star because it will be another 360 odd days before we see it again.
