A few nights ago as Arlo and I drove home from work we noticed these birds on the horizon in Nelson. They were swirling around the trees together at sunset. Their beautiful silhouettes captured us both. So last night we headed down to the beach with the camera, in the hope that they would still be there and they were! Apparently they are starlings and have been here for the past few days. I’m not sure what they are up to but if you’re in Nelson, head down to Rocks Road! It really is breathtaking.
Art Project / Inspired by the desert: Silhouette Tree
Today is the last day of mine and Alana’s mini drawing project. It was hard getting these 3 pieces out on time, we both felt pressured and were chatting every day with new bits of inspiration, what we could draw and pinning ideas on Pinterest! I chose to doodle the silhouette of a tree against a huge orange sun in the desert. I like the simplicity of it with one big pop of colour.
These photos were taken on our front lawn while mum threw food up to them. It all started with one little seagull and within 2 minutes the lawn was swarming with them fighting and yelling at each other. I love their silhouettes against the plain background. We were probably there for an hour amused by their behaviour and trying to snap the perfect shot. Hope you’re all having a beaut weekend! xo Bec
Hello helloooo! I took this photo on my iPhone awhile ago and have always wanted to use it. Again I used this photo as an inspiration for the painting. Here are some fab bloggers that have been joining in with the Shoot it, Sketch it feature, check out their blogs! Alana, Anna Cull, Lunch Sketch and Poppytump. If you are joining in with us this week (or next) just leave a comment below so everyone can see your post! xo Bec
After being in the city for a few days, Arlo I went up the northern coast to explore and visit family. I took these shots along the way! I especially love the ones out of the car window with the sun going down, hot dry fields and silhouettes. It was very pretty and we thoroughly enjoyed our time up there! Which is your favourite pic? xo Bec
It was 35`C on the day we visited the Golden Gate bridge which for my body is waaay over the limit. Before I almost melted onto the concrete, I got these pics of the very beautiful bridge. Fun fact: the painting of this bridge never stops, once they complete it they have to go back to the start again. Imagine having that job and saying you’ve painted the Golden gate bridge 322 times! Crazzzy! xo Bec
