A bit about me! My name is Angela and I am very fortunate to have a wonderful husband Malcolm. I also have an English Staffy X called Poppy, she often features in my photos and is a special character. She has a great dislike for the camera but a great love for M&M's so can be convinced to pose!
The important part, my camera, I am a Sony girl and currently shoot with an A99. Did I mention I'm in love!! I upgraded from an entry level crop sensor camera to the A99 about 18 months ago and it has been a great move. My favourite lens would have to be my macro lens, used to take close up shots. When I'm not photographing animals I can often be found in the garden with my macro lens chasing bugs and flowers. We live in Karratha in the North West of WA and we are so lucky to have a wide array of wildflowers in Spring, this photo was taken at a local beach.
I am never far from my camera and an always amazed by the world around us and just how many things I find interesting enough to photograph. Often it's the everyday things, the way the light shines through the tree in our backyard or a shell at the beach and of course Australia's vast and varying landscapes. I am a Kiwi and originally from the South Island of New Zealand, the landscape in Karratha is such a sharp contrast to the green landscapes of New Zealand. I am so excited to be heading back to New Zealand in a couple of weeks, this time to visit the beautiful Bay of Islands and I can't wait to share some photos with you. I also love to craft and create and will be sharing some of my projects with you along the journey. This is my latest creation, a hat to wear in New Zealand as I'm sure after the lovely sunny days we have been getting in Karratha lately it may be a little chilly....and maybe just because I haven't had a need to wear a wooly hat for a while!!! It's the small things right!!!
The pattern can be found at My hobby is Crochet if you would like to make one :)http://www.myhobbyiscrochet.com/2014/03/hypnotic-heart-slouch-hat-free-crochet.html I used a slightly thinner yarn than specified so mine is more of a beanie fit than a slouch hat.
I look forward to sharing my photographic and crafting journey with you X
