Photos that make me smile.

May 4, 2012 · 24 comments

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any of my ‘just because they make me happy’ photos here.  So today I’ve picked five photos I’ve snapped that make me smile.  Maybe because of the memories they bring to mind or maybe just because they’re pretty and hold my eye.    I love a photo that makes you want to keep looking and exploring.  That to me is art!

Your phrase caught my attention. It startled me because I haven’t met anyone else who has voiced this. It is lovely to meet someone else who loves taking photos that ‘make me smile’.
I saw your Ballarat passion on your blog. It was some 25-30years ago that I met Jack Klugman (Quincy) Sovereign Hill lolly shop, so I have always had a fondness for Ballarat associated with that memorable experience. Also it is the roots for Bendigo Bank, which is my bank.
I happened to find you when: I was just looking through Mama Grace. On FYBF she featured May 2012, when it first started for this week.

You don’t need any words at all..just beautiful photos like these xo

Oh, Caz! I love these ! My favourite two would have to be the rose petals and that gorgeous window.
I’ve become addicted to taking photos lately (blame it on Instagram) and yes, it’s always nice to go back to the ones that make you smile.
So nice to have you link up for FYBF ! x

Thanks Mama Grace 🙂 Taking photos is addictive – and so much fun. I have billions of them store away – and another billion or two waiting to be taken!! All the best with FYB – you’ll do great.

Love the last photo! I have a thing with old windows!

Thanks Zoe 🙂

I don’t know Caz. That picture of the little paint pots made me cringe a little. The sight of those things in a child’s birthday present or gift from their Aunt are enough to scare the bejeezus out of any Mum. I’m sure my sister gives my kids one of those at least once a month just to spite me. LOL Love the pics!

Oh I hope you do too 🙂 I having been saving all my blog earnings for a DSLR. This is just my Fuji – it’s good – but no lenses. But I keep getting distracting my other things I want too (like an ipad). I’m just like a toddler …. ohhhh that’s pretty 🙂
