From Where I Stand…

Hello and welcome back my friends, Month Eight of Kim Klassen Be Still | One Year Wiser is all about abundance. In Northern climbs you are all about to head into Autumn; which means harvest season. Where as here in the South we are heading into Spring; Citrus, pretty gardens, Spring flowers, warmer weather, longer…

Citrus…

Hello My Friends, Nothing quite says fresh like citrus fruits, does it? Well almost any fruit really, but I do love some bright lemon, fresh white daisies and the pop of blueberries………just so fresh! ~ Julz, xo

Tweet, Tweet…

Hello My Friends, Have been playing with this cute little bird, I featured it the last week, some pretty spring like blooms and rustic bottles in a wire carrier, and my new rustic timber backdrop as well. A little bit dark and dramatic, with some very late & weak Winter Sunshine back lighting the shot….

Chocolatey Friday Fun…

Hello, How about a pop of colour for some Friday Fun? Fancy some M&Ms……nothing beats some yummy chocolate, I must admit I am quite partial to Crispy M&Ms, what are your favourites? Here’s hoping you have a fantastic weekend. ~Julz, xo

New Website…

Hello, Welcome back, today I thought I would mention my brand new updated website, featuring not only my beautiful Still Life, but also Portraits, digital art and of course landscapes, of all varieties and some other bits and pieces. And just for visiting my website, I have some freebies to download to celebrate; Lightroom Presets,…

A little bit of sunshine…

Hello, The weather here has been truly dreadful this week, I feel I am in need of a little bit of yellow and sunshine……yellow is real, sunshine is sadly simulated 🙂 ~Julz, xo

Pretty in pink……and white and mauve…

Hello again my friends, I love some pretty hydrangeas, such lovely colours, which I believe is all due to water levels and soil conditions, amazing isn’t it? As a child growing up we had these along the drive of our house, I always thought they were such an old fashioned flower, such a Grandma plant….

Reflections

Hello again, Still playing with my white perspex, this time with a branch of magnolia, I really dropped the reflections down on this one and kept it white, but dramatic. Decided I liked it in a triptych………..what do you think? ~Julz, xo

A Little Perspective…

Hello My Friends, sorry I have not posted for a few days, got a little busy here in the studio. Did manage to snap a few quickies, I bought some new white perspex and was playing with this little purple flower, it’s fake and cloth, but still quite pretty. I love shooting on perspex and…

Spring is in the air…

Hello my friends, we are having an unseasonably warm patch for Winter, it really does seem like Spring is just around the corner. While out exploring in the fresh air and sunshine I spotted this adorable bunny, the bottles and basket in a trinket shop and just had to add them to my collection………so cute….

Tuesday’s Textures…

Hello My friends, How is this gorgeous little bird statue, with some miniature pine cones and lovely dried grasses. I saw this little guy and had to snap him up. Show with some late afternoon Winter sunshine, back lit. They old timber table top is so perfect with the colouring as well. ~ Julz, xo

Weekend Flora…

Hello! While out and about on the weekend, I couldn’t help but snap up a few blooms, it’s still Winter, yet some how the trees and bushes are all starting to bloom, even the cherry blossom trees are in flower! ~ Julz, xo
