Captured in Snaps










The Notorious has been in town the last few days - a handmade recreation of a Spanish caravel. It has been quite exciting to see in on the river, making one wonder about sailors of centuries past and perhaps even pirates!

Master J is home on mid-semester break. He arrived with large trimmings of wattle, collected by the roadside on his way home. I have enjoyed their scent and the dainty little details of their pollen laden flowers (which can be a major allergy problem for some).

You know spring is close when storm clouds like these grace the sky. I took more photos of the sky than the hockey at the girls' game late yesterday - three of our daughters play in the same A grade team. And yes, they won their game. :)  

Another week ahead, filled with possibilities!

Great photos today Karen! I love the reproduction of the Spanish ship.
The huge, dark cloud in one of your photos looks very ominous. The cloud looks like it is almost touching the earth.

ThAt old ship design is wonderful. I can't imagine being out on that is a storm with no sight of land. And the clouds....fascinating. The last on looks absolutely unreal.

You are a busy mom. But I love how you use your time in waiting and watching games capturing snaps!

Your photos are so vivid, Karen, and those clouds! Wow!
Congrats to the girls on their win! And nice job to Master J, too.. bringing flowers home to mom is always a win. :)

Wow!! Cool ship, just there on the river for you to admire. It boggles the mind to think how these ships would travel long distance through oceans. Beautiful wattle , and moody sky photos!

Hello, I love the cool ship, looks like the pirates have arrived. Your son is sweet to bring home flowers to you, they are pretty. The sky shots are awesome, cool cloud formations. Enjoy your weekend!

It's always such a pleasure coming to your blog!
We saw the Notorious when we were holidaying in Port Macquarie in September 2013. It provided a fabulous subject for my sunset images!
