Mondays Musings

What an amazing weekend, last week was quite a busy one as well. With the weather warming up I have quite a few shoots coming up, stretching my Conceptual Portraits side of my brain, as well as a few other things. Can’t stop exploring my amazing Melbourne either. The Jasmine is out the baby birds are all starting to take flight, the sun is amazing (and so are some of the storms).

Saturday morning, we visited the Australian Garden, in Cranbourne, which forms part of the Melbourne Botanical Gardens. It is much more arid than the lush green gardens in Melbourne and shows an array of desert plants. We met up with some photographer friends and wandered around for a few hours, snapping a few pictures chatting away and then grabbed some lunch and a coffee.

We then ventured back home for a studio shoot with Jayde Helena, Moth was shooting in the studio with me this time, he is really starting to enjoy shooting a few things other than landscapes; this time Steam Punk…..something I have been wanting to do for a while, so it has been nice to explore it a bit recently.

Sunday morning was a sleep in, then headed over to Desley’s for some yummy lunch and a good old catch up, oh, of course, we took a few pics as well 😛 It was wonderful to have a face to face catch up, it has been way too long.

Of course, it’s then just the normal, food shopping, dinner and getting ready for another week. Today maybe a Monday, but I have another shoot tonight after work as well, another new model/designer, so that should be exciting, but more on that later.

I hope you all have a truly wonderful week…

P.S. for those of you who were wondering, Buddy is doing quite well, he is home, but still a little affected by the heat. Thank you to everyone for their kind words and support
