I received my beautiful +Plus One Collection book yesterday! It is filled with gorgeous and inspiring photos from the google plus community and I'm so honoured to be included.

Thank you and well done to +Ivan Makarov and everyone else involved in making this project happen, which is raising funds for a project for children in Africa through the sale of this wonderful book.

If you've not heard of it before check out their website. You can still order the book and it's on special at the moment, with all profits going to The Kligoris Project.

We shall not hide from one another, 
But lay our hearts and souls bare 
For each other to see. 

We shall not attempt to 
Polish the darkness, 
But allow the light of friendship 
To dissolve it in gentle acceptance. 

We all have dark places. 
Of sadness.
And fear.
And doubt. 
When we can show these to another,
And still receive their love,
We have found a true friend. 

The spirit of friendship 
Lies in having 
The trust 
And courage 
To bare our quiveringly imperfect, 
Yet exquisitly beautiful, 
Souls to another
In all its messiness 
And all its glory. 

And of embracing 
Their naked heart too. 

(So spoke the Voice of Friendship)

St Nicholas Island, Turkey

This is an old photo from my film days that I thought I'd shared before, but don't seem to have! While in Turkey I went on a 4 day gulet boat (traditional wooden sailing boat) cruise along the Turkish coast. One nights mooring was beside St Nicholas Island, which is called such as it is believed to be the original location of St Nicholas' tomb (the traditional name is Gemiler Island, which means Island of Boats, with St Nicholas being the patron saint of sailors).

Late in the afternoon a few of us picked our way up the hill and through the ruins of 5 small churches to the very top of the island, where we were afforded a magnificent view of the setting sun. It was a really peaceful and beautiful place, and I remember sleeping extremely well that night on the deck of the boat - being rocked gently in the calm waters of the harbour and breathing in the clean ocean air. Great memories!!

Purlingbrook Falls

I went up to Purlingbrook Falls, Springbrook early in December and it was a mere trickle, and I dare-say before the rains it had dwindled even further. But 1000mm in 24 hours was more than enough to make it a large and powerful waterfall once more!

After The Rains

I went up to Springbrook on Friday to get some photos of Purlingbrook Falls after the mammoth rains earlier in the week (they had over 1000mm in 24hrs!!)...I'll share one of it later on, but actually I much prefer this pano of a little creek (always the way!!)

Bliss...

...is my selection for #PlusOneCollection2012 - a wonderful project created by +Ivan Makarov to raise money to assist children in Kenya through a book full of fabulous images contributed by the Google+ community!

You can read more about the project at:

and http://plusonecollection.com/

I chose this photo as it reminds me of how beautiful the simple things in life can be. So often we like to over-complicate life, yet most of the time it's the little things that bring us joy.

I just realised that when I originally shared this photo (over a month ago - I'm a bit slow!) I somehow didn't share it publicly...so let's try again!! :)

This is an incredibly cute and massively patient little bug I found on a plant in my fish pond. I really think he liked posing for the camera as the only movements he made were to tilt his head on a jaunty angle and straighten his antennas (feelers??)

Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas from what was the sunny Gold Coast, Australia (we're now getting some beautiful rain!) I hope you've all had a beautiful day and not over-eaten tooooo much!! :D

I've not been posting much lately but I intend to change all that in 2013 with lots of new photos. Here's to an amazing year to come for you all!!

Lots of love, Lisa xo
