Photo a Week Challenge: Wildlife


© irene waters 2014

© irene waters 2014This is a new challenge that I came across today. Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, Nancy will come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.

3. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.



About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

    He doesn’t look like he’s engaged much in *wild life* 🙂
    In fact, he looks a wee bit stoned…. Stoner-roo!

    Sounds like an interesting challenge…you find so many my friend! Love this photo, the expression is priceless 😉


  4. Can’t you just put words to the expression! The roo looks so smug and self-satisfied: “I told you that business plan would work! You just didn’t have any confidence!”
