1000 images today!




The jacarandas are in bloom everywhere in Brisbane at the moment. The evenings are warming up nicely and the weather radar has started to get a bit more interesting with storms starting to come through. Yesterday (while I was at work and couldn't get out with my camera) there was a huge hail storm on the south side of Brisbane blanketing a huge area with piles of hail stones. It looked like snow it was amazing.

So today is my 1000th post - HURRAY!! I'm going to use the occasion as an excuse to take a break for a while and have a bit of a blogging holiday. As those of you who do a daily photo blog know, it can be very time-consuming and hard work. So unless I have a little gem on my memory card that I can't wait to share with you, I'll be off until the December 1st theme day... when, if I may mix my animal-related metaphors for a second, I shall be back roaring like a Bengal tiger and ready to get the bit between my teeth. So until then, enjoy your Spring or Autumn depending on where you are and I'll see you on Brisbane's first day of summer.

Yeehaah!

Wow Cara, 1000 congratulations on 1000 magnificent photos!

I shall miss the 7am date with you and my fellow commenters-but what a ride it's been!

And being just the tiniest bit egotistical, wonder did you think it might also be an opportunity to get rid of me! sorry, but if you'll be back like the bengal tiger, I, like the elephant, won't forget.
(No need for comment!)

Loves ya.

Since discovering your blog in July I've enjoyed visiting it almost every day. With your permission I used your photo from June 1 2009 in my September 'Eagle' article and it was a great hit! Have a good rest.

Congratulations on your 1000th photo. And thanks for making it a Jacaranda. I'll miss my daily trip to Brisbane. See you December first.

Very impressive Cara. Are you that disciplined in all areas of your life? Scary thought. Enjoy a few drinks in West End. Maybe you could become a weekly blogger or worse a twice a day blogger next time?

Love your photos. Enjoy your break. A-M xx

You're such a lightweight, Cara, where's your staying power..:-)
Make sure you do come back, your photos get better and better and I need to keep my Brisbane knowledge up to impress my better half. I know from personal experience that it is very easy to forget about blogging when you take a break. Not sure I'll be back to it any time soon.
Congrats also on 1000 posts!

The Jack blossom is only now starting to become obvious around me. I think we need the season a bit more consistent.

As discussed elsewhere, see ya ...

Congratulations on the milestone Cara! I'm a freelance writer living in West End - interested in possibly doing a little interview with you about the site? Would you be keen?

Totally missing your daily posts - I have withdrawal symptoms. Life's so boring now. That I can go outside and see the glorious jacarandas in bloom is only small consolation...... :-) Enjoy your break, Cara, and thanks for all the pleasure you've given with your art.

cara said...

Thankyou all! I really am enjoying the break - especially the lightness of walking around without my camera! However I have had a few occasions where I have spotted something and thought how good that shot would have been. oh well. New camera on order. Can't wait!! See you in December.
