One of the more interesting traditions of the new school is the wearing of academic robes on various occasions during the year. We all went very Hogwarts today and I finally got to wear my gown for the first time. Bookclub in the evening and one photo of a series of a cat impression using my gorillacam ipod app which does time lapse -this is Bernie- nuf said
My early start makes me be awake at a time when magic is often happening outside. Clouds gently descend over our trees in the night and the first rays of the sun give them a mystical quality. Grabbed these shots early this morning and ten minutes later it wasn't the same. Doing this project is certainly sharpening my eye!

A lovely Australia Day get together with some old friends for breakfast in a local cafe complete with birds as decor and then me playing with a new Lego photo app on the iphone

I am just starting to notice the wonderful pieces of art that are all over the campus of my new school. This is a car that has amazingly detailed decoration I will do a close-up later of some of the wonderful bits and pieces.

Ok so this blog may have too many cat and garden pikkies but that is how it goes around here and I had Iphoto hassles today - apparently there is a bug with Iphoto if you upload pics you have received by email on your Iphone up to Iphoto. Resident Handy and Techy person spend many frustrating hours trying to fix said problem so photo subject range is a bit reduced but he did fix it for me. He is such a wonderful Handy chap!

A new desk, a new job, a new view on the world and lots of new ways of doing things. Two days of orientation then three days of meetings and getting ready. Looks strangely like some of the shots from the start of last year...

Well after all the years of me being the photographer when members of my family made big new steps and started out doing something amazing, today was my turn. Little Ms Stick-in-the-mud has finally picked herself up and done something different. After 29 years of working at the same school in the state system, today I headed off to my new job at a really wonderful private school. Lots of nerves and excitement and my darling resident Handy Person got to do the photography thing for a change. Seems to be the thing for the year.

New job begins tomorrow so I bottled plums, cleaned cupboards, vacuumed, gardened and generally tried to keep busy and not freak out about what is happening. Stay calm ,,,,,,,,,, then I helped Pam with her new iphone - she's a little techy gal that Pammie. Wonder what I will photograph tomorrow?

You would never guess where I went again today- I am going to go on commision there soon - Cloudehill with another pair of visitors who are garden lovers. They went mad with the camera too and I am posting some pics from a guest photographer Mr GB who showed me how to use the macro facility on my camera and where the rule of thirds grid is. Here are his lovely shots - enjoy!
