Weekly stills

There is no rhyme or reason to these photos this week.  A ramshackle collection, much like the week it was.  But that's what family life is really, a random collection of moments that, most of the time, gel into little pockets of happiness and togetherness.

1. Itchy feet, it's time to start planning
2. Someday his wife will thank me
3. Oh, to be a cat
4. Late evening stroll
5. Serenity

Weekly stills - the spring has sprung edition

Like most of Australia, we have enjoyed the most glorious start to spring.  To be truthful, winter was very kind to us, but nevertheless there is a definite change in the air.  The light seems warmer, and the gentle scent of jasmine wafts through our open windows.  This truly is the most magical of seasons.

1.  Strawberries galore
2.  Spring markets
3.  Blue skies and terracotta tiles
4.  Barefoot soccer games
5 & 6. Springtime seems the perfect time for flowers.
