Spring Goodness

I took a 10 minute break today and wandered around the garden to see what Spring had sprung. I even broke out the real camera instead of the iPhone so I could share some flowery goodness. In various nooks and corners I discovered new inhabitants in my garden, a santa clad gnome in the back garden, a duck peaking through some shrubbery, a naked lady basking in the front garden, a Dachshund lurking in the succulents (oh wait, the Dachsy is the only one living!). These ornaments arrived earlier this year along with my mother, Lyndell, who I realise I have not introduced as the other new face of Wild Honey Photography. She fills in the gaps between Sarah and I by answering phones, running errands and being here when orders are collected and generally keeping the place looking spic and span. So our little hive is buzzing with activity, inside the studio and out.
Speaking of flowers and family, if you want to see a flower a day from Toowoomba's lovely gardens, check out my brother's blog .

PS. At least three of the flower photos below were photographed last week on the iPhone. Can you guess which ones?

Melbourne - Technology - Revolt Productions

Gotta love technology! 6 days in Melbourne (mostly work, carefully balanced with pleasure) and after much hand wringing and swearing, phone calls and visits to telstra shops, I finally got the pre-paid mobile broadband to work an hour before I flew back to the sunny coast. Also in that time both email addresses had technical issues which meant some emails bounced back to the sender and some were deleted never to be seen again. So if you haven't heard back from me, please try again.

Other than that, there were no technical difficulties evident at Melbourne's snazziest new performing arts centre's first live gig. Rebekah and I were there to document history in the making.

You don't get a second chance to make a first impression and Revolt wowed its first-time patrons with its stylish, spacious and moody interior. Powerful performances by The Nymphs, Tim Cannon and The Twoks matched the vibrant ambience and left the audience adding Revolt to their Twitter feed, ready to return for more sensory goodness.
