Ok so I said to Jo ‘I will back up all your NZ photos on dropbox and on my external hard drive’. Now I’m beginning to think I have taken on a mammoth task the photos are flying over and I am swamped already but never mind the photos are fantastic…

Onto Friday Finds. I have decided to post 5 photos illustrating my feelings this week….Very much a mixture of highs and lows but always with me my trusty picture taking equipment. I am finding that I’m using my phone a lot at the moment, my only wish a zoom but hey we can’t have everything .

# 1 Finding and loving more iPhone apps and sharing with Barb at Keeping with the Times for her app happy Wednesday link up. Here I used Distressed FX and Letter Glow
# 2 Seeking the simple I have embarked on a journey with Kim Klassen on her Be Still 52 I am loving this already. Registration is still open.
#3 Looking at beauty everywhere this is my neighbour’s wisteria it drapes itself so beautifully over the hedge at the bottom of the garden and the scent …..
# 4 I have had so much benefit from Jo’s leaving bouquet finally I have had to admit defeat and throw it away not before one last photo session. The soap is from  Anthropologie I bought it for the paper and it smells divine.
Using Kim’s canvasback texture.
# 5 Finally back to another app, I took this photo using the wonderful Hipstamatic app. I used Tejas lens and Dreamcanvas film my favourite combination….
Two other things that I am very interested in are connected to the World War One commemorations that will begin this August . Firstly the Imperial War museum have opened an archive called Lives of the First World War here you can read about and take part part in remembering the lives of the fallen. Also my friends Show of Hands are releasing a CD in June called Centenary: Words and Music of the Great War the narration is by Jim Carter Mr Carson, Downton Abbey) and Imelda Staunton ( Harry Potter, Sense and Sensibility) 

Anyway back to the sorting of photos have a great weekend……

  1. Your first image is breathtaking. There are no castles in the midwest USA, so I am fascinated by castles. Your captured it beautifully. Glad you got another shot of the sunflower. Have a great weekend!

  3. Wow! You have been busy, Viv! Don't you just love the way you can connect with Jo while she's traveling and having her adventure? I love all your photos, and have to agree about App Happy … finding so many new things there. And 'Be Still' … yup! beyond awesome.'

  5. Noooo…. you mustn't throw away the sunflower just yet – plenty more lovely tones and textures to come! I'm enjoying Kim's class – I need it so much. Heading off to the IWMN within the next few weeks to see 'From Street to Trench' – looks fascinating.

  7. The Anthropologie soaps look so delightful. I never buy them, I just look at them in the store. You captured a beautiful soap-package image. I'm amazed at the light and depth of your phone pic. Hmm, I guess I should make more of an effort to learn how to take better phone photos. Good luck on Jo's picture project. I laughed because it reminds me of trying to download my daughter's wedding photos. They crashed my computer, so I ended up downloading them in batches to my computer, then to an external hard drive. Took hours and hours, but I have them all now and can enjoy them forever 🙂

  9. Love the last of the sunflower photo – finding beauty even in the remains. Good luck with the photo back-up and reorganization process. Remember when we kept all of our photos in shoe boxes? I love your idea of pairing photos with your feelings for the week – highs and lows.

  11. Such lovely photos. I'm sure that the photos from Jo will slow down eventually and you'll be able to keep on top of it and enjoy sharing her journey in this way.
