Monday Musings…

I am exhausted, a huge week at work, last week, followed by a huge weekend. After spending Friday evening booking flights and hire cars etc, for our trip to Brisbane to see our youngest daughter and her Husband, and then vegetating on the couch in sheer exhaustion. We were up early and running around on…

The creation of Rapunzel #1

This week, I thought I would do something a little different for In the Studio and write a behind the scenes for a recent shoot I did on location in Victoria’s Redwood Forest in East Warburton. What As a child, I had a deep love and fascination for stories, particularly fairy-tales, and especially the Grimm…

Share Your World – 21st November 2017

If you were having difficulty on an important test and could safely cheat by looking at someone else’s paper, would you do so? Ooh tough question, am I allowed to yes maybe for a hit of inspiration, but not to downright copy? At school, I never would have, in fact, I was probably terrified of…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Experimental

This week’s WPC theme is Experimental, as most of you are aware a lot of my photography, especially my Conceptual Portraits are quite experimental, but generally, through careful planning and sketches, mood boards and the like they come out as I have imagined them. A few months ago I did a 20-day challenge with Brooke…

Wanderlust…

No, it’s not mine, but perhaps it should be? My eldest daughter came home recently with her first tattoo, it’s not an issue, I have a few and so does my other daughter. She is 26, it’s her body, her wallet, her problem 🙂 …..but I do like it and it sums her up well,…
