It is the time of the year where dad sells his lambs for meat...
So I ventured out to take some photos of the monstrous beasts. I wasn't too happy with my shots but I did come away with some that were okay. And there were chickens!

I finally got to get my camera out in amongst all the madness of assignments and exams!
We bought wee chicks today, aren't they just so cute!?

I am looking for new ways to be creative with my camera and I have been challenged here at digital-photography-school on taking 'abstract' pictures. Here is my attempt!

A Date with Pastels


My friend and I were being creative buddies with pastels the other week. I found myself possibly becoming obsessed with hands...
Later that day we also enjoyed lollie cake! nom nom nom

Botanical Gardens

“When I experience the joy of discovery, of images that celebrate light, colour, texture, shape, of the hidden beauty in inherent people, landscapes, wildlife, the world that reflects God’s glory - when I'm doing that I feel his pleasure.”

Rachael said...  Matt! I love how you have written how you felt a sense of happiness and accomplishment from playing a piece of music. It sounds like guitar is very important to you. Just a thought (the class was a bit unclear though) are'nt we only meant to have one main need for this activity. So what's the one particular need for playing you're guitar, more than anything else?? I woould like to give you an example but this proves to be too hard and I'd probably confuse you!

Rachael said...  I like how you discussed that knitting goes back to you're women-ness and heritage. Also, how it links in with you're relationships. Knitting sounds like an important aspect of your life and love reading you're posts. Would love to see some pictures :) 

Rachael said...  I loved reading this! It was good to see you say why you made some of you're decisions. Also great use of references, keep it up! Nice questions at the end, shows you have thought about things. P.S I really do think it is about the taste, and thanks so much for your comment :) & mentioning that movie! 

Rachael said… Kerryn, I love the way you have told you're story. I can really see how this activity lends itself to communication and connection.
