Weekly Photo Challenge


They say home is where the heart is. For me this is true, my darling and I have lived in a number of places and our home is with each other, no matter where we live…

This weeks challenge is easy for me. Since February 2000 I have been in love with the most wonderful women in the world, since we met and became one my life has been sensational. Our love grows stronger daily. We celebrate special events together every year, and we do everything together. Like now we are sitting reading together on the couch, life rocks and you rock my world my love…

The challenge this week is delicate, there are a few meanings to the word delicate. It can be something that is dainty, a situation that is precarious or fragile. Given these three meanings I then had a look through my photo’s and chose a couple for each meaning. Here goes.
Dainty –

Macarons are very dainty.

Precarious Situation –

Small he may be, he still needs to be handled delicately to avoid injury.

From January 2007 to May 2008 we lived in outer London. There were a few highlights, the centre of London and the museums, the close proximity to Europe and the snow. Growing up in Perth we didn’t get snow, though I did experience a white Christmas when we went back to England in 1976. My darling grew up in Brunei and had never experienced snow, so the times it did snow was a special treat for her. Here are some of those pictures, still portrays the magic for us.

Having lived in a number of different places this challenge is a good one for me. Though Brunei doesn’t really have any seasons being only 6 degrees North of the equator. So I will be posting two entries to the challenge. This is the first, Australia. Here in Perth, Christmas day is typically around 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit). So having a white Christmas is out of the question, and even in winter it is not cold enough to enjoy snow, though I know if it is too much snow it isn’t enjoyable. The life in Australia typically revolves around the ocean as most of the population lives close to the coast. Here are some photo’s from different times of the year.
