I am playing with media settings in my post today. Thanks to a few tips from fellow blogger Maureen at http://kiwis-soar.com/ , I finally found the confidence to look at the photo settings for my blog. It was hard to decide which settings to use but I eventually selected the circles because I thought they suited the floral nature of the photos.
If you would like to try your hand at making the delicious fruit loaf in the photos , the recipe can be found here (http://www.healtheries.co.nz/healthy-and-gluten-free-recipes/healthy-cakes-and-slice-recipes/fabulous-fruit-loaf). Personally, I think my photo looks more appealing than the Healtheries’ one but…….it’s not the look that matters but the taste. And this loaf tastes wonderful. It’s full of dates and apricots, sultanas, linseed and wheat germ and, because I couldn’t help myself, I added ginger, which is not in the recipe, but should be; in my opinion.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I am going to try your recipe. Tony
Oh I hope you enjoy it. It’s nice to meet a Queenslander. My folk are in Cairns. My cousin is in radiology in Perth.
Lovely photos and now I am craving a piece of the moist loaf! Nice job pairing the delicate flowers with loaf…so pretty.
I wish I could give you some! Thank you for your kind words.
I’ve finally caught up with your lovely blog… thought I’d followed age ago, but something didn’t click…
Oh I am pleased to see you. I know you have tried several times to follow me. I am not sure what goes wrong.

Thank you so much. You are a kind and thoughtful friend to make a special post for me.
with pleasure, my friend. best wishes
I have your grand-daughter’s photo with the ginger as my screen saver now. 🙂 Tell her that I greet her every morning.
The set of pictures looks full of Life, Colours and Love. Thank you for visiting my Blog.
Thank you. I do love flowers and colour.
The circles look lovely with the flowers, well so does the fruitloaf. There is so much more on WordPress and we really need to experiment. I made the other day some banana oat slices from a bloggers recipe and they came out so wonderful. As my children thought it was too healthy I HAD to eat them all by myself…… I do make sacrifices like that all the time……. 🙂
Thank you Ute. Well, you know now that if you make my healthy fruit loaf, you won’t have to share it with your children. You can have it all to yourself. 🙂
Exactly! I should always do the healthy stuff! haha
The pictures are great. They motivate me to want to learn more about my camera settings.
I wouldn’t mind betting that there is some interesting advice on the subject in one of the Ladies Home journals you feature in your blog 🙂
I didn’t know you could do something like this with photos. Maybe I ought to try it.
There are a few different settings. I tend to stick with what I know and can do easily but it’s fun to try something else for a change.
Love the colorful photos and the fruitload looks quite delicious!
Thank you. The fruit loaf contains a lot of nourishment as well as good taste.
Well done!!! There is so much to learn about WordPress…
You have just inspired me to check out my setting!!!
Indeed. You do some wonderful things on your blogs that I have yet to investigate 🙂
Like the flowers!! Fruit breads are so nice with a first morning breakfast ❤
Yes they are but I like them almost any time.
I think the circles match well with your flowers. I will try that recipe since I love to bake 🙂
I am glad you like the circles and please do try the recipe. It is one of my favourites.
Nicely arranged collage of images, and some are yummy too.
Indeed they were yummy; so good that I was encouraged to overindulge. The recipe says the loaf will keep for 2 weeks; who are they kidding? 🙂
hmm… the loaf is so yummyyyy ! I can imagine it just like on the tip of my tongue.and Very very brilliant setting.
Thank you. Do you grow ginger plants in your garden? I love to eat ginger but I have not seen the plant itself.
Yes, I do. I grow some family of the ginger too. Just let me know if you need the photo of the plant and I will be pleased to send it to you 🙂
Thank you for your kind offer.
It is raining all day today, I hope tomorrow will be a good time to take the pic. 😉
I will wait patiently.
Very nice arrangement of the setting.
Thanks; glad you enjoyed it.
The circles look great – and I’ve downloaded the fruit loaf recipe…
Thank you and I hope you enjoy the fruit loaf. It’s an easy one pot loaf and I find it very nourishing and hearty.
Mmm – sounds tasty AND healthy! Well done for creating a gallery – it’s not easy, that’s why I don’t create one very often! Are the flowers from your garden or a bought bouquet?
The nasturtiums were given to me by a friend. The parsley and alstroemeria are from my garden. I must confess I found it easier to make the fruit loaf than the gallery of photos 🙂 ! But then I have had more practice with baking than with computers.
Ha ha, don’t we all! Practice makes perfect and I look forward to more gallery posts from you in the future!
