The 52 Week Project

Every week I'll be linking with @mymummydaze and her "52 Week Project".

She says...

No, this isn’t a diet or exercise regime. It’s not a responsible financial system or an abstinence program. It’s not even a relationship-building sex challenge (although that does sound fun). Although I’m sure I could benefit from all of these year-long challenges, this is much simpler with no great philosophy or life-changing aims underpinning it. It’s a weekly photography self-portrait challenge.

This week I tried to get a little artistic and take a photo of myself with a gorgeous jacaranda tree in the background.
The jacaranda is way more blurred than I had inteneded...but it's there.

I adore jacarandas.
We have only one in our yard, and I think it may be dead :(
There is no sign of life and all the others are blooming.
Our town is full of them, much to my delight.
From our front patio, I can count 40.
Next week I'm going on a 'jacaranda walk' to snap some purply goodness.

  1. Fantastic pic, even if the jacaranda tree is way to blurry. x

    You have been 'Tagged' in my 10 Things about me you probably don't want to know post. Now its your turn to fess up... ...

  2. Lovely - both subjects, that is!

  3. Oooh, jacarandas bring back so many memories for me. There was one in the house next door to my grandparents when I was growing up... Reminds me of warm weather and Adelaide!

  4. Love the angle - it's a fun photo! I can't wait to see the jacaranda walk shots!

  5. Really lovely photo. I love the angle that you are looking at the camera.

  6. Oh Jacarandas are glorious trees, my parents have one in their yard and it's been there as long as I can remember. I used to love the lush purple carpet the petals would leave on the grass below, so pretty. I do love spotting them throughout the neighbourhood also, they stand out so beautifully with all those blooms.
    A lovely shot of you too Thea :o) xo

  7. better the tree be blurred than you!

    I think we have a few jacaranda around locally, although not in our street as they pulled anything of nature down to build the houses. I think there was one tree left in this street when we moved in. We are trying to change that, but it is going to take some time.

    It is a lovely picture of you, btw :)

  8. I love this photo!

    I love this time of year for Jacarandas too.

    I think I remember once seeing a festival for the jacarandas maybe up Armidale way. A girl even got crowned Princess Jacaranda each year...


Just one little comment will make my day.
