I have a strong desire to document my life. Not necessarily my everyday experiences and errands or even special events, but just things that I see. Some people document other people, some their travels and adventures, but I like to document simplicities and complexities in the natural world around me. Sometimes photos act as bookmarks…Read More
Some photos from a recent weekend away, and a little journal entry with a few thoughts on how it helped me with my chronic busyness and inability to ‘do nothing’.Read More
Last weekend I went on a holiday to Brisbane with my boyfriend, and I decided to take my film camera with me! I wanted to bring my film camera instead of my digital camera because it just keeps me in the moment more, instead of checking after every photo and worrying too much about getting…Read More
So! I’ve named this post ‘green is not a creative colour’ because literally every photo is green (apart from 2) and I’m beginning to think I can’t take pictures of anything that isn’t green. And I’ve been feeling a bit less creative and inspired with my photography lately, sooooo perhaps Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared…Read More
I couldn’t help but watch the people lining the shore and the jetty, and notice all the individual memories being written as so many people gathered in a common place to leisurely live their lives. Everyone coming together to enjoy the water and the sun, but each group’s experience independent from the rest. People together, but apart, and soon to go separate ways and never to know if anyone happens upon the same place as any of those beach-goers again.Read More
It’s all a part of life’s flux, the growing pains,
the stiffening ache – perhaps just the body’s lullaby.
Stop trying to move while curled and cocooned
Just rest before becoming a butterfly.

These photos were taken in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, and I find myself always finding new things to photograph there despite it being one of my main places to go…Read More
This is a spot I have visited several times to take photos, but I have never seen it this green! It honestly feels like a secret fantasy world, even more so when it’s overrun with greenery, and only enhanced further by the fact that it kind of is a bit of a secret, off the beaten track sort of place. I think it’s beautiful how untouched it is.Read More
A gallery of recent film photos I took at sunset at Henley beach, plus some thoughts on the creative process behind them.
Whenever I take my camera to the beach I always feel the need to hold back from taking an entire roll of the same photo, but it seems that even if I feel like I’m doing that, I never actually am.Read More
I find myself often revisiting places to take photos. I used to be hesitant in doing this because.. if I’ve already been there taking photos, there can’t be any photos left to take, right? But I actually have found that this is a great exercise for improving my photography, since I’m driven to look past…Read More
