Photo Friday – Summer in Adelaide

Summer has hit with a vengeance, with sunshine, lightning storms and our first statewide fire ban day. Back in the garden, we’re still doing the pre-Christmas clean up in the front yard (and getting rid of fire hazards).

Ideas Photo Shoot: History and Nature

One of the exciting things about living in South Australia is the history. When I moved here I discovered something: South Australians are very proud of their heritage, part of this is discovering not only settlement history but native history as well.  The week I was invited, as part of the local writers group, to a…
