Instagram is FUN

In December 2014, Instagram hit a major milestone, when they could boast a whopping 300 million users, and thus passed Twitter. Instagram is a mobile photo-sharing social network, and it is in essence simple to use: take a photo, add a filter, write a short text or just hashtag, and post. Too easy. And that’s […]

Hidden Quality

Extremely thick coasters or maybe paper weights. That’s generally what people think when they visit my stall at markets or come to my studio and see the acrylic photo blocks for the first time. Goes to show that acrylic blocks are still fairly new in Australia. Not many people are familiar with them. Which is […]

A Soft Spot

I do love faces. Children are the easiest to photograph, adults much harder, and women the worst. They rarely like their appearance (I know the feeling!) and are generally incredibly nervous during a shoot and very critical after a shoot. This 1400 Mitsubishi Galant is the car of a teacher at my young one’s school. […]

It’s about the Journey

A little while ago I wrote a post about the ‘The Perfect Sunset‘. In it I stated that I couldn’t find any foolproof information about predicting whether a sunrise or sunset is going to be one of the breathtaking ones or not. While I haven’t found any more scientific information in that regard, I have […]

Who’s Ed Cal?

Every year towards the end of December a lot of notes tend to be everywhere around our house, with things to remember for the new year. It got a bit out of hand some years with so many notes, I lost track what was written where and got in trouble with my husband because of […]

Even if I wasn’t acutely aware that Christmas is barely three months away, drowning in work as it were, I would remember now, since as of yesterday the first Christmas decorations are at the shops. Working as a portrait photographer is quite a seasonal […]

The fruit of bees is desired by all

Saint Ambrose said this about honey. He also called it “profitable and healthful” and “equally sweet for kings and beggars”. Of course he didn’t know about Pooh Bear, otherwise he might have included him and said “equally sweet for kings and beggars and fictional anthropomorphic bears”. I’ve always been fascinated by bees. Always working, working, […]

Musical Sunset

“There is nothing more musical than a sunset. He who feels what he sees will find no more beautiful example of development in all that book which is, alas, musicians read but too little, the book of Nature.” Claude Debussy My taste of music is fairly eclectic, I guess. My ipod just rolls its eyes […]

Winter Beach

I really love going to the beach in winter. It really is not cold on most days and the light is just fabulous. Look at the sparkle in the sea, it was a gorgeous day. Very happy as this photo found a new home already, it’s a great privilege to know someone will look at […]
