Pretty Please Pat Me!

Pretty Please Pat Me!, a photo by Patricia Manhire on Flickr.

The weather has not been great lately and I have not had a chance to go out with the camera. So my cat Sox has been a good subject for me. Here is another photo of him looking like he wants a pat. I like the light on him and it gives him a much softer face as well. He is a very cute and very demanding cat and at times very photogenic!
I am still making cards and will upload some more shortly.
I hope everyone has a great week and I will catch up with you shortly.

Defiant in the winter sunshine

Another photo of the day. The late afternoon sun had a golden glow to it and I grabbed my camera and rushed outside to take photos of the last few remaining flowers in the garden. I can now understand why they call it the Golden Hour.
We are now in the middle of winter so everything is looking a little bleak at the moment. So we make the most of the sunshine and the flowers that we have.

Reaching for the sun

Just a little photo to cheer people up after the last few days. I was really pleased at how this photo turned out and I did not have to do a lot to improve this photo. The daisy seems to just pop out on the page. Some days I can get great photos and other days I delete a lot, but I am improving.
I hope you all have a great day.

This is the companion to my other photo. I don’t have a lot of flowers left in my garden as we are in Autumn here, but the geraniums are always good for photos.
Happy snapping

Hanging in there

My photo of the day. Yesterday I went out in between showers and managed to get a few photos and here is the best one. The colours are just beautiful and I couldn’t believe I managed to capture this perfect rain drop.
I hope you all have a great day.

Early morning glory

Yesterday I got up early and went down to the river with my camera. It is starting to get a little cooler in the mornings now and there was a heavy dew, but the birds were singing and it was lovely to wander about communing with nature. I have taken a few lovely photos and here is one flower I managed to get with an insect on it. The bees were nowhere to be seen as it was too cold for them, so an incy wincy spider will have to do. I hope you enjoy it.
Have a good day everyone.

Pretty in Pink

My photo of the day. I was really pleased at how this photo has turned out. There had been quite a bit of rain the night before and there were lots of raindrops on the flowers.  This azalea is such a pretty pink and the raindrops are just like little gemstones shining in the sun.  I seem to gravitate towards pink flowers – perhaps that is because my favourite colour is pink!
I hope this cheers your day.
All the best
Patricia
