Poppet - Listen to my words! It's been an unsettled week in Melbourne, staying with my parents while the smoke surrounds our house in Gippsland from the fires in the coal mine. My Poppet's diva like tendencies have come to the fore. (Although considering all the disruptions and change of routine she's been very good.)

Sprocket - Walking in the park with his stick, on the lookout for cicadas, tadpoles and all other things that creep, crawl and wiggle. Only reluctantly accepting he's unlikely to find piranhas in the streams and ponds. From this shot you'd never guess my little school boy still has his baby cheeks and still climbs into my (increasingly crowded) lap for comfort.

Joining with the lovely Jodi of Practising Simplicity for a portrait of my children once a week, every week in 2014. 


  1. What a wonderfully ochre diptych, Kirsty! X

  2. Everything is so dry here all the photos in the park are ochre-y! While I love the colours, I do hope it will rain soon!

  3. I have found your site to be quite useful. Keep updating your site with in valuable information... Regards
