Paris – partie un.

Oh Paris. I’ve always wanted to go there, but have never been before. In the last couple of days before my flight home from Amsterdam, I took the fast train to Paris, for just a day trip. I took a ‘hop-on-hop-off’ bus and saw the sights – even to make me desperate to come back…

Delft City

We drove to just outside the city centre of Delft, but the bus is not allowed to enter, so we walked about 15 minutes into the centre. Of course, on the way, it started to rain, so we dashed into a hot chocolate shop to stay warm and dry until it passed. I met a…

Ascension.

I took the Metro to Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and was struck by the immensity of this escalator. I had my iPhone (8 Plus) in my hand so I snapped a quick shot while stepping onto it. Here are a couple of different edits, which is your favourite? You can probably guess mine…. I love the…

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…

It was such a lovely afternoon – perfect temperature, great conversation, really nice. I was home by 8pm, just in time for sunset, so I spent five minutes (actually…

Rise / Set

Since moving to Melbourne more than two years ago, I’ve yet to find a good spot to capture sunsets. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of great sunset spots, but finding somewhere easy to get to and at the right time of day is difficult. Given where I work though, I might have to…

Oooh, Shiiiinyyyy!

Distractions. What distracts you? That’s the question from The Daily Post this week. For me, it’s the sky. I can be walking from my bedroom to the kitchen or the bathroom and be stopped in my tracks by the view of the expanse of sky from my balcony doors. So out I go, no matter…

Wanderlust

Well this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge seems made for me. I am, after all, a frequent flying scientist.  We are asked to share a photo that represents travel and wanderlust. There are two things that I do on planes – one is write and the other is take photos of the clouds. There is something…
