Echeveria elegans


Echeveria elegans, originally uploaded by rodillagrande.

One of my Mother's Day treats was an expedition to the Botanic Gardens with my camera and the child most likely to nap in the buggy. Nearly two hundred shots later this desert plant turned out to be my favourite.

Blowing out the Candles


Blowing out the Candles, originally uploaded by rodillagrande.

The birthday girl blows out the candles.

I try not to use the in built flash as much as possible. Normally this means that I get a lot of very blurred toddler in motion shots. This time it would seem that the birthday girl stood nice and still to better concentrate on blowing out those candles.

St Patrick's Day Stone Men


St Patrick's Day Stone Men, originally uploaded by rodillagrande.

We hosted the NCT open house here on St Patrick's Day so I thought it might be fun to get the wee ones to paint some stones green to make these little faces. Some of them have more eyes than I expected.

Baby Carrots


Baby Carrots, originally uploaded by rodillagrande.

Alex planted some seeds and has been enthusiastically watering them. These carrot seedlings have survived the deluges so far.

It would have been much better to get the seedlings in focus.

Parsnips for Soup


Parsnips for Soup, originally uploaded by rodillagrande.

The base for roasted parsnip, vanilla and lemon soup. It was ok but not a soup I'll make again.

Not a very interesting photo unless you want to know more about chopped parsnips.

Why yes I do have little time to myself. That is why I'd like to design a book of photographs within a single month.

Lets see if I even remember that I thought that this would be a good idea.
