The light on the grass
I had two family photo sessions - two families of 5 who were all friends, so there were also a few combined shots - this afternoon up in the Dandenong Ranges. It's been a lovely, busy Autumn for photos, but the leaves are mostly on the ground by now, we have maybe another week or two that will still be good for shooting in. After that the light will still be lovely, but the trees less colourful. And probably a lot more rain happening. Which I don't mind. My lovely brother-in-law installed our new ducted heating unit last weekend, so we are all cosy in our little house now and set for Winter :)
This is the second Saturday in a row that I've been out shooting for much of the day and come home after / around 5:30 wondering what to make for dinner in a short amount of time. Tonight I stopped in at the shops briefly and picked up a 'Chicken Tonight' jar of sauce as they were on special. I find this completely hilarious, as I really don't ever cook in jars of sauce (it's pretty easy to cook from scratch, healthier etc!) and I always think of that stupid Chicken Tonight ad from the 90s, do you remember the one? Kind of like the chicken dance on steroids? Anyway, I still added some extra veg, do they seriously expect you to only have chicken in it? It wasn't too bad. But I still find it funny.
And I apologise if I've offended anyone who regularly cooks with jars of sauce. We also only eat free range eggs and meat, and cook regularly with native herbs, so things can be a bit left of centre in my kitchen ;)
