as the sun sets

We went to the beach last weekend and on Sunday night I wandered along the beach in the evening as the sun was setting. The sky was so pretty.

june


It's the last day of June so we're halfway through 2015. I know I have said it before but it is hard to believe how quickly life goes by. 

June has been busy. It's nice to have begun school holidays- less structure and slower starts.

Winter is definitely here with cool, crisp mornings. Sydney winters are beautiful, so pleasant to be outside. I went for a walk today around Watson's Bay with James and the lovely Justine.  It was nice to be out and we chatted and took photos and ate fish & chips.

A good day.

And I'm starting my 365 project tomorrow :)

out for a walk

It's always lovely to get out for a walk, exercise & fresh air are so good for my general well being. It's especially nice to go for longer walks with beautiful views!

Last Thursday I went for a bit of a bush walk on the coast...


...and yesterday I went for a walk around some of the waterways in Sydney.



SO beautiful!

winter skies

There's been a fair bit of rain about, but when it has stopped the evening light has been amazing..

a project


























I think a project is always a good thing when trying to encourage creativity and a to find reason to pick up a camera. I've been playing around with the idea of doing a 365 (photo a day) but have always been a bit reluctant to commit for a whole year.

I think I have a solution that will work for me!

I'm going to do a 365, a month at a time. Starting on July 1 with a month of instant film. Each month it will be something different, something a bit challenging and something that I want to practice. I'm not sure what I'll do yet but I'm thinking things like black & white, portraits, etc???
Let me know if you have any good ideas.

I don't think I'll post them all here- perhaps a few favourites each month- I'll see as I go. I'm excited!
I took this instant film above on the weekend, it was my last film so I've ordered some more- ready to start in July.

ten on ten

Ten on ten for June! Ten photos over ten (or so) hours on the tenth day of the month. 

I do feel really grateful for this project, a reason to pick up the camera and document my day- looking for the beauty in the ordinary. I didn't  really feel like doing it today (too many boring things that I had to sort out) but am so glad I did. It makes me realise that the dull and difficult in my days don't need to overwhelm me, there is always something beautiful if you look for it. 

This is what my tenth looked like..
