28/2016 - Gotta Catch 'Em All!



I've been pretty slack on the old exercise front lately, so in an effort to increase my step count for the day yesterday I went for a wander up to Kings Park on my lunch break. I was thinking I could catch some photos of some flowers... maybe some nice skylines...

...and ok - I had heard that there were a bunch of Pokemon to catch up there. Turns out lots of people had heard the same thing! I know that the whole Pokemon Go thing causes mixed reactions with people (Mamma hates it and takes every opportunity she can find to tell me that its stupid), but as a highly geeky person who is maaaaaybe a tad compulsive about collecting things I kinda love it. Not in a crazy trespassing/playing while driving/roaming the streets in the middle of the night kinda way, more in a nostalgic kinda way. And hey - all those people looking at their phones made me feel less nerdy about getting up close and personal with a bunch of flowers and real life critters!

  1. Hello, your photos are lovely. Great captures of the insects. I do not understand the Pokemon thing, is it a game on the smart phones? Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  6. Love your flower and bee photos. Certainly worth your walk to the park. The whole Pokemon Go business I can do without, but so long as you enjoy it just go for it. Be sure to look up once in a while for safety sake.

  9. Awww, super cute Jigglypuff you caught! Jigglypuff is my favourite Pokemon and you're right, it brings back all the nostalgia of the 90's for me with all of the new Pokemon fans outside. Lovely shots you got while you were out too, the colours are so pretty. - Tasha
