It’s hard to believe we are past the halfway point of the year isn’t it? We’ve got a very busy second half of the year ahead and I’m taking a bit of time over the next week to think about what I want to achieve in the next 6 months as I know the time is going to fly by.
I’m really happy I’ve managed half a year of my weekly photography project. There have been a few times where I’ve almost faltered but thankfully I’ve pulled through. It seems fitting that the halfway point for this project is a series of photos I took while we were away in Exmouth. read more
Oh hi little blog! I haven’t forgotten you, I promise.
I seem to have lost my blogging mojo of late, I think it has to do with winter and feeling tired. I’ve also done a bit of travel lately and a lot of reading for work which both cut into time in the evening spent at the laptop. But I’m easing back in to the blogosphere by catching up with my weekly photography project. Here is a round up of the last couple of months in photos:
A quick round up of subject matter going from the top: week 17 spotty hydrangea, week 18 a dew decorated cobweb, week 19 autumn colour from my mum’s garden, week 20 a chubby fist full of flowers, week 21 a super cute three year old on her birthday, week 22 floral gorgeousness from The Grounds of Alexandria in Sydney, week 23 playing with dress-ups, week 24 a field of pretty weeds at my mum’s and week 25 the most beautiful purple delphiniums.
I recently took an incredible trip to Queensland. The road trip was part of an Etsy Australia campaign called #city2outback, and an opportunity to explore the life of an Etsy maker – from their artistic practice to the local area they call home and the source of the inspiration behind their work. Our trip took us to Ayr in far North Queensland where we met Phillip and Majella who are the lovely couple behind Exquisite Gem. They showed us the beautiful corner of the world they live in and gave us an insight into how they make their jewellery. I took close to 1000 photos over the weekend and put together two photo essays about the trip, one about the landscape in Queensland that I’ll share next week and this one about the hand made process behind Phillip and Majella’s jewellery.
The weeks are slipping by so fast aren’t they? We’re trying to make the most of the mild Autumn weather before the rain kicks in. The last two weeks have been lovely, we’ve been out and about seeing things around our city. Two things we’ve really enjoyed were #Public2016 and the Night Noodle Markets at Elizabeth Quay.
I can’t believe Easter has come and gone and all of a sudden we are a quarter of the way through the year! How did that happen? Wouldn’t it be nice to press pause for a little while. Over the last few weeks I’ve had ample opportunity to get the camera out, I foraged this beautiful magnolia with mum before Easter and I played around with some different shots, moody and dramatic and simple and clean.
