June's Floor By Window

Alanna's Carpet Near Fireplace

Image description: colour photograph showing a closeup of a cream carpet flecked with brown lint. The image is blurry in the foreground and sharp in the background. The pale yellow, bottom corner of a door frame, and some cream, marble-look linoleum are visible in the top right corner of the image.

Alanna's Skirting Board with Fabric

Carolyn's Window Slightly Out of Focus Closeup

Image description: colour photograph showing a slightly out of focus closeup of a window. The window sill is white and there is a knotted, white net curtain hanging at the left edge of the image. The view from the window shows green, leafy trees and shrubs in sunlight and the top edge of a brown wooden chair.

Window With Dirt On the Outside

Image description: colour photograph showing a closeup of a dirty window. The dirt and water marks on the window are in sharp focus. The view out the window of a cream shed, brown fence, brown and white buildings, a yellow-lidded rubbish bin, a blur bicycle, and a red wheelbarrow, is out of focus.

 

Trish's Mug
