Love the weekends...

Weekends at our place are usually pretty hectic and this one was no exception.  Birthday parties for mr J, soccer party for miss S which included all of us, painting the house, study .... you get the picture.  Well it was all too much for mr W who ran around non stop at the soccer gig till 11pm he flaked on the lounge yesterday so had to take advantage didn't I.  They always look beautiful asleep.

Enjoy your week

Take a good look!

Those people that know me well will know that I NEVER put any pictures of myself on FB and probably won't after today for a very long time.  I just think that I look much better behind the camera instead of in front of it. 

 As I mentioned in my last post i'm doing a workshop for the next 4 weeks and another brief we were given for this week was 'self portrait'.  I have made a couple of attempts at it in the last couple of days but well easier said than done, so for the first week these were the best that I could wrangle, I do like the ones with Wilb's kissing me the best.  What do you think?

take a good look folks. b x

LMCW project - explore

So yesterday I started a new workshop with amazing photographer Angie Baxter.  One of our briefs for this week is called 'explore' and we are to challenge ourselves and take photos somewhere you have never been before or your camera hasn't been.  Just wanted to share a couple from today would love to get some comments good/bad. b x

A Little Bit Adelaide.

A couple of weeks ago I flew down to Adelaide.  I went there with the intention of doing a photography workshop with the very talented and lovely photographer 'Angie Baxter'. 

 I also went to catch up with a very special friend Father Mark who I hadn't seen yet this year and thought it would be great to see his 'home town'.  The week before I left F.Mark called me to say he had been admitted into hospital as his heart was not functioning well.  The day I arrived I visited F.Mark and could see he didn't look his normal self, we chatted for a couple of hours then I left him to rest.  I saw him briefly again on the saturday and we spoke on the phone many times over the weekend.  On sunday morning I visited the Pandas at Adelaide Zoo then on my way back to the city F.Mark called me while I was in a 2nd hand bookstore, we chatted and he was anxious to get on with his surgery which was scheduled for monday morning, I said that I would call him as soon as he was out of intensive care and as always we exchanged 'I love you's', he would always say 'big hug' and 'your a beautiful girl'.  Sadly this was to be the last time that we spoke, F.Mark passed away last thursday still in intensive care.  My surrogate dad, my mentor, my confidant has moved on to a better place to reunite with his sisters, I will miss you always f.mark, but I will always have the best memories of the special friends that we were. 

 'Peace be with you' my friend. x
