Sometimes it is easy, sometimes my shots are planned, but often they are just a quick snapshot or a random shot on my way home from work! But my friend has just wisely said to me -
Random shots of a moment in your life where every minute is as special as any other - nothing wrong with that!

At the end of the year it will be interesting to look back over my year in pictures. Actually when I look back now, I see more random than not!
In June we see - fun in the park, making Anzac biscuits, beautiful sunset over the Leschenault Estuary, autumn leaves, autumn grape vine leaves, jetty views, avenue of trees near Dardanup, insect patterns on gum leaf, Anzac biscuits in the oven, sunset search lights, soup and toasted sandwich for lunch, river reflections, cotton reels, Perth view over Swan River, Miss Muffin cat looking out the window at Lyndendale Gallery.

In July we travelled up to Western Australia's Pilbara region for a couple of weeks camping. We had a wonderful trip and it was great to get away. I needed it. Bliss.

This last photo "hospital" was the beginning of a month long stay in hospital for my darling Dad. He is still there and the prognosis is not at all good.
Below we see bare winter trees in the hospital carpark, my son swinging his nephew in a wizzy, swirling branches, noodles, vegetables in our farmer's market, flame tree flowers, yellow daisy, in my car (this must have been a bad day!), dried gum leaves, ferns in my garden, chocolate slice, welcome home flowers, creative seaweed art, my camera has a meltdown at "blooming art", phone pic, "Blooming Art" at the Bunbury Art Gallery.
Below you can see my floral art piece in "Blooming Art" at the Bunbury Art Gallery (the highlight of my month), part of my Blooming Art which I boxed up to take to my Dad, trees in the hospital carpark, the hospital corridor (I know it well...on the right is a lovely Chapel), tree reflections in the hospital carpark, waves on the beach, jetty at sunset on the Swan River Perth, everlasting flower in Perth's Kings Park, damage I did to my car in the carpark, flowers for my Dad's 85th birthday in hospital, flowers which dear friends sent to me, pink daisies, rain on my windscreen in the hospital car park, my son coaching junior soccer, cows in the beautiful green rolling hills of the Ferguson Valley.
I send all my love to my Dad. Praying for peace for him.
