The farm weekend…

A couple of weekends ago a few girls and I ventured down to Margaret River. We arrived at dusk, opened the farm house up and it wasn’t long before I had a perfectly made G&T in my hand (thanks to Erin).

Soon enough the fire was blaring and the wine was flowing. I snuck a moment in the late afternoon to get my photo groove on (sober at this point). I very much enjoyed experimenting with the changing light as the sun was setting.

My favorite thing about visually capturing someone’s home  is the colour palette that comes from the shots. A rich individual representation of what the owners have brought to the property is created and I’d like to share some of the colouring from my dear friend’s family (holiday) homestead.

The post from the weekend will be split into 2 or 3, there were too many to choose from! Would love some feedback guys.

P.S. Watch this space on more colour palette work.

Spring is here!

This photo was taken on my phone, which was a slight faux pau and against my own rules (thou shall take camera everywhere). I like the pic despite the “questionable” equipment used. It was certainly a delightful day  looking around the wildflower festival in Kings Park. What a lovely city I live in! I’m certainly grateful for some sunshine and blue skies.

Hidden Treasures

I love it when you come across something you completely forgot about! In this instance I have been going through my digital photo archives, and have been pleasantly surprised. I took this photo back in 2005, I was severely jet lagged so I only have hazy recollections of this night (which is probably why this photo is grainy and out of focus). All I remember is falling asleep in Phantom of the Opera and eating too much spaghetti (not at the same time!)… I really love this photo though, quintessential London – Big Ben in the distance, grey, cold and moody. Hoping to make some changes to the blog soon, want a fresh new look to to fall in line with the start of spring.
