I've had quite a pleasant week scavenging and to top it off I've had a really lovely day visiting Government House in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. It opens to the public just one day a year.
I have also been doing some reading during the week trying to get my head around Bokeh, but it seems I have Bokeh in my brain ( a bit fuzzy ). I was experimenting with shots in the beautiful gardens surrounding Government House, but I didn't have much luck ( I seemed to bleach the main subject) . Oh well more practice for me.
Thankyou for all the lovely feedback on last weeks' photos, I would love to reply to some of you, I am still working out the best way to do so, as I realised if I comment on your comment, you don't really recieve it. ( is that correct? I'm only 3 weeks new to this blog business and won't mind at all if someone puts me straight)
Hope you all had a lovely week yourselves and thankyou for popping on by.
This weeks Scavenger Hunt items were,
Strike a Pose, Footwear, Hobby, Shiny, and Colour Me Green
Strike A Pose
I met this little girl in the line to enter Government House today,
and she obliged me and striked a pose, I thought her dress matched the flowers in the bed behind her. ( what a little sweetie!)
My absolute favourite pair
One of my many hobbys is collecting china, prodominently from the 70's.
My favourite pattern is Acapulco, by Villeroy and Boch.
I like to use pieces from my collection regulary, as I'd hate for them to just collect dust.
I think this one is like Summer in a cup!

Colour Me Green
This shot is from my archives, I love the distressed look of the fence posts
with the velvety green moss.
Thankyou for popping by, love to hear your comments
