Amsterdam in Mono

This beautiful city is full of colour, which I’ve shared on social media, and I’ll share here too, but I love the look of black and white and minimal colour as well. I feel like this trip is helping me to redefine my editing style and I’m enjoying it immensely. Here are a few of…

For The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge : Structure. Whenever I visit Brisbane, I try to photograph “my bridge”. This is Story Bridge, which I’ve written about before here and here.

With my new job, I’ve been getting up incredibly early (for me) at around 6am. It’s Winter in Melbourne and the sun doesn’t rise until a little after 7:30am at the moment and the temperature at 6am is usually around 4 degrees Celsius.

Selfie?

She spent about 10 minutes taking photos of her daughter who was trying out a number of poses and facial expressions. Don’t you just love people-watching πŸ˜‰…

Final Call

She knew she must look a fright. It was evening and yet she was walking through the airport wishing that her huge sunglasses would cover her entire face. Or at least more of her swollen and flushed cheeks. The tears wouldn’t stop. She’d been fine when they’d said goodbye (well maybe not fine, maybe just…

Reading
