For no reason at all, other than it makes me happy.

this strikes some chord within me. i do love.
I haven't really written a personal post with 'personal' photographs in quite a while, and I thought this sunny afternoon may just be the ideal time to do so.

entering the airport

Half an hour before sun down last night, three of us piled into a car and started driving. Winding amongst the quiet traffic of Adelaide, Ben Howard's 'Old Pine' filled the soft silence between us, as we swapped the quiet city for a quiet coffee shop in the airport.

the city

our city beneath us

We drove for miles and miles, we drank watery hot chocolate from an airport cafe but that's okay because we also saw the sunset, along with planes take off that had the most golden colour to them. We didn't board a plane, we didn't even welcome anyone home but we did dream of the places we would go, and where we may find ourselves one day. We drove from one end of the city to the other. We sat in silence, we sat laughing, we were content. We did it for no reason at all, other than it made us happy and isn't that enough? It sure is.

Cross it off the bucket list, baby. Go to the airport for no reason at all -- done.

Happy Thursday to all and to all a content night.

So i broke my 50mm lens today. We were mid-shoot (not this one, folks, i'll get to that in a minute) and i was standing on a chair.  Fast forward 30 seconds and my lens is in two pieces and I come to the realization that it is indeed, broken. Thank God, 50mm is relatively 'cheap'. Thank God, my camera body is okay. Thank God, for Dick Smiths Electronics who had 'just one more' in stock.

Only blessings, never losses.

Though my bank account may still be weeping, i ended up doing the right thing by re-purchasing my favourite little lens. This afternoon, with my new baby, I shot the beautiful Olivia Hosking. Judge the results for yourself, but this fiery little soul is to die for. A joy to work with and oozing with potential.

More shoots booked, so you'll be seeing more around this place.

Enjoy your days/nights/whatever it may be,

Breathe Me.

Hello, February.

You greet with me with such madness and force. When I thought last month was the busiest yet, I spoke to soon and was welcomed with greater chaos. But I take it on, and I make my own fate so everything I am doing is everything I want to be doing, and nothing more should be said.

So many exciting things to tell you all. I am literally jumping all over the place with energy, and so ready to show you what i have in store.

Happy 2nd day of the 2nd month. Speak soon.
