shezasphotos SUNSET MAGIC!
I have so few sunset photos in my feed that I borrowed this brilliant LE shot from my great Irish mate @slippy__ and tweaked it ever so slightly in edit. If you like sunsets, nature and a great sense of humour, do yourselves a favour and please head over to @slippy__ page. Let him know that I sent you. Happy Hump Day from our winter "land down under", AUSTRALIA! Loads of love, Sheza -----------------------------------------------

shezasphotos LIVING ON THE EDGE! THE EASTERN most tip of AUSTRALIA!
LOCATION: Cape Byron, part of Byron Bay, our recent holiday destination, northern NSW. Before my mother passed away I was able to share my holiday shots with her. I had to convince her that the rocks in the water, mid right of the cliffs, were NOT people diving off! 🚷 As I reflected on her passing and our conversation, I wanted to share the following quote "You've got to jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down"- Rod Bradbury.
I hope you like the shot! -----------------------------------------------

shezasphotos IN MY MOTHER'S GARDEN! DSLR, aperture mode, 14-54mm lens.
" Nothing is more completely the child of art than a garden"-Sir Walter Scott Today's tip: If you've never photographed a geranium before try it! I think they're one of the most photogenic, yet overlooked flowers in the floral kingdom. I have lots of geranium photos peppered throughout my feed using different lighting, as well as emphasising different parts of the plant. With so many different colours one can never be bored. ️I've been trying to make my way around to galleries so if yours isn't one of them, I'll try soon. Happy weekend to you allLove Sheza -----------------------------------------------

shezasphotos COLOUR MY WORLD! DSLR, aperture mode,14-54mm lens.
I have adapted a quote that I read somewhere but thought it was worth sharing . I think it sums up so many aspects of life. Food for thought! "We could learn a lot from coloured pencils- some are dull, some are bright. Some have weird names, but they've all learned to live harmoniously in the same box." Happy Hump Day to you all from Australia. I hope you like the shot!

shezasphotos The below was preprepared for posting. It will be my last for a while. RIP my darling Mum- 5-2-1926 to 28_6_2014 (after a miraculous recovery 9 weeks ago, the world has gained an angel)
MEDITATION SANCTUARY!
My main aim with this shot and several others, was to try and capture bokeh. Backlight and using a wide aperture seems to have been my best method so far. (Any other tips are gladly welcomed ) DSLR, aperture mode, 14-54mm lens. Follow me to Crystal Castle, 20 minutes drive from Byron Bay, northern NSW.Tucked away in the hinterland , the Shambala gardens offer a sanctuary for Buddhists, tourists / those seeking a feeling of peace and tranquility. "THE BUDDAH WALK" takes you on a 1 km winding track through lush gardens and rainforest. There is also a Stupa monument to represent the process of enlightenment. The soothing sound of prayer bells can often be heard. I was so captivated by the beauty and mood of this place that the 1km walk took me about 2 hours, with my camera and I constantly distracted by the beauty of the smaller world within. If ever I needed proof that I feel more comfortable photographing close up shots than scenery,this was it ! I hope you enjoy the shot and the vibrance of these beautiful variegated leaves. -----------------------------------------------

shezasphotos BYRON BAY BEAUTY! "In all things of nature there is a sense of the marvellous"- Aristotle DSLR, aperture mode, macro lens. This image follows on from my previous post of the stunning pinky red grasses (muly grass?) that are so prevalent around Byron Bay and the surrounding hinterland. I was dying to try and photograph it in macro- this is the outcome. I hope you enjoy it and can see why I was so captivated by its beauty! If you ever make it to our "lucky country," I strongly recommend a trip to Byron Bay (located in north east NSW, AUSTRALIA.) On a sadder note I want to say how hurt I am when people block me/say unkind things,without me knowing why. Without a reason, how can I not make the same mistakes?! It's a reminder to me that IG is a virtual world - about people we don't really know. Ig should be about FUN, FRIENDSHIP and SHARING photos, not about cattiness and egos. I wear my heart on my sleeve, so if that offends some people, I'm sorry. SO...cheers to being positive and leaving nastiness and the minority behind. Love to you all and always keep smiling -----------------------------------------------

shezasphotos ON THE ROCKS!
Location: Byron Bay, a popular holiday resort close to Cape Byron and it's famous lighthouse, which guards the EASTERNMOST tip of AUSTRALIA
As many of you know, I'm a "newbie"to LE photography (long exposure). This is my 1st coastal attempt. Had I climbed any closer to the action of the water, I would --------have risked falling/ being washed away. As it was, my tripod was sinking into the sand and I had water lapping my feet with the incoming tide.Scenic shots/ landscapes have been an area of weakness to me but one which I'll be on a constant quest to improve. "Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't, I give myself reasons why I can"- unknown author I hope you like the shot! -----------------------------------------------

shezasphotos LAUGH KOOKABURRA LAUGH! DSLR, aperture mode macro lens. "Laughter is a tranquilliser without side effects"
Kookaburras would have to be my favourite AUSTRALIAN bird because of the way they laugh. It makes you feel like laughing with them. At our lakefront holiday home, they're so tame that they'll eat meat from the hand. My aim with this photo was to present a side profile so you could see their beaks in more detail. All I need now is a photo of a koala!
Some facts: Kookaburras are native to AUSTRALIA and New Guinea and grow to between 11-17". DIET -mice, snakes,insects and the young of other birds. Their beaks are sharp for gathering their prey /thrashing things to tell of dead or alive.
I hope you enjoy my shot! Special thanks to my beautiful Aussie buddy and talented photographer @chelle_lu (see her gallery) who lightened the eye using Lightroom. Wishing you all a great weekend. LIVE, LOVE, LAUGH and SMILE often- Sheza -----------------------------------------------

" Nothing is more completely the child of art than a garden"-Sir Walter Scott A couple of posts ago I wrote a letter to my mother as she was dying. This is what was expected by us and the Doctors. However, she surprised us all by recoveringI believe your combined love and prayers, combined with her will to live, helped. I now ask for your forgiveness for being slow to respond/view galleries as everyday for the past month has been spent in hospital. I have had very little time for another life.

  •   shezasphotos @cindys_pix_ud that highlights the essential diff between us. See who you're losing ! - am sure those true losing weren't contributing ? I'm not in any hurry to gain anything but users her contribute with likes. As for followers that for me is meaningless . Far more important to me that my likes increase 19h
  •   cindys_pix_ud Yes .... you're right. All have been non contributors. It's still a little discouraging though. 19h
  •   shezasphotos @cindys_pix_ud they were only ghosts. For me what is far more important is that I check gram pro every day. The average likes I have only last 20 shots is 1600+As long as that increases I will be happy - have noticed though that I have such a vast increase in the number of ghost followers. Hard to tell sometimes - my last few shots have been slow but I try to look at the trend. I sit on 1 shot, retag and enter contests. I find that helps lots and as you know I only post twice weekly - all I can manage 18h

shezasphotos "GOOD NIGHT MY DARLING MUM- SWEET DREAMS", (Repost- caption and photo can be seen further back in my feed if interested ) I prepared this last night before my mum has actually died! My heart is too heavy to concentrate on IG and I wanted to post it before mum actually passes into the next life. LETTER TO MUM: My one and only darling mum, my best friend and my girlfriend, Thank you for giving me the most precious gift of all- the gift of life and love. You taught me that "tough times never last but tough people do." Your hands nurtured be from the time I was a baby, you embraced me with your hugs, and you nursed me during the many times I was in hospital after the birth of our darling daughter. Nothing is more pure or beautiful than a mother's love. Thank you for giving me the privilege of nursing you during your time of need. How perfect that you gave us all the time to say our goodbyes, to love and repay you for all that you gave to us. How perfect that your last days were pain free - that you didn't have a lingering illness and that your 88 year old body was just tired. How perfect that our darling dad is there waiting for you. I know that we will meet again and I look forward to your warm embrace. I will love you forever mum and feel your love around me, Your loving daughter always, Sheryl xxx

Please forgive me for this self- indulgence but it was cathartic for me.
I will return when I'm emotionally strong enough and will gain strength from the bonds we all share. Much love always, Sheza (PS. I will understand totally if anyone wants to unfollow)

shezasphotos LONE RUNNER! Location: Chelsea beach, Melbourne , Victoria, AUSTRALIA "Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't, I give myself reasons why I can"- unknown author
This last few days with my mother so sick I have felt like I too, have run a marathon . Never would I have thought I would have the strength to handle a such a crisis ALONE- hence the inclusion of the quote. A huge THANK YOU to you all for being there with me and for your love and prayers. We're hoping we're over the critical phase but she will need time and much care. I'm sure you will understand why I have so many unanswered comments and not visited your galleries . The latter are top priorities for me on IG. Happy and safe Easter to you all much love Sheza !
PS FREE EYE TEST: if you can see the ship on the horizon you don't need glasses ! I hope you like the shot!

BLACK AND WHITE CHANDALIER! DSLR, aperture mode, 14-54mm lens. To highlight these backlit droplets, without the distraction of colour, BW seemed to be the ideal medium. I hope you like the shot!
Thank you to all the wonderful people who took part in @phototerminal STILL LIFE contest, which I had the pleasure of judging. With 600 entries, it was extremely difficult - the winners can be seen on @phototerminal site. In my eyes all those who took part are winners! The difference between ordinary people and extraordinary people is the word “extra.” -----------------------------------------------

shezasphotos "GOLDEN HOUR" the AUSTRALIAN WAY! Location: Marina, Port Douglas, far north tropical QUEENSLAND, Australia. COLLAB: Taken by me, my outrageously funny Irish friend @slippy__ worked his magic on the editing. For a visual feast of sunsets, long exposure and nature, please do yourself a favour and visit his gallery. I really hope you like the shot! Wishing you all a great week ahead. -----------------------------------------------
