This fortnight's Round Robin Challenge - By the Numbers

This is how they describe the challenge...

"Time for an all new challenge! Jill who authors the blog, South Bay Soliloquy, recently emailed me an idea... "By The Numbers" Here is how she explains it...

"How about something called "By the Numbers" as a topic? Anything showing numbers: signs, a child holding up fingers to show how old he is, a number on a shirt, house numbers, whatever...""

Here is what I was thinking...

As always any critique or feedback is very much appreciated.

Introducing Stilla

The old girl may be just a scrawny little tabby but she still can hold her stare and look positively regal.

PS the previous 2 posts Berries and Autumn Sky were taken using the new lens.



At work we have these hedging bushes and I noticed these pink berries growing in them. Not sure what they are exactly bu the soft pink colour was quite eye catching.

Autumn sky

The weather in Sydney at the moment is just about perfect. Cool mornings mild days and cool evenings. The sky is also pretty fantastic, with really nice cloud formations. This would have to be my favourite time of year. :)
