Ode to Chantelle H...

...can you have an 'Ode' to an alive person? I HOPE so. Well, I am, so there!
You see, Chantelle H has a fun-tabulous blog where every now and then she
shares photos she has taken with her 50mm camera lense.
And she takes STUNNING shots. See HERE.
And I keep saying I'm going to take some too. And never get around with it.
Well, I finally did!
So, this is a non-scrappy post. Sozzy folks! Gotta break outta the mould occasionally!!!
 Our azalea is flowering beautifully atm....
I can't believe the fixed lense can take photos like this!!!
 My GF gave me a succulent for Chrissy. I HATE them.....but it's got a pretty flower;)
 Now, camellias.....right up my alley. Love them!
 Had a tidy up in my scrap room & re-sorted my flower storage....
 Just a few leeks growing in Tom's little vegie patch!
 The view from our verandah. With our new-old distressed table Tom made.
MY favest spot in the whole wide world!!!
And of course, Wally had to get in on the act! Wally loves the verandah too!!!
So, if you've got a Fixed 50mm lense.....I'd recommend giving it a work out.
You might be surprised like I was!
And thanks Chantelle for the inspiration:)
Lizzy ♥♥♥

  8. Love your photos and of course Wally is just to cute. I can see why the front verandah is your fave place to sit , I hope I get to sit there one day with you enjoying a chat and a cuppa.
