Japan street photography

A few days ago I added a selection of the street photography I took in Japan to my portfolio website. Have a look here.


I developed a roll of film from my second Diana camera today. I like this shot which I unintentionally double exposed. In general the colours from this camera are lighter, but rather surprisingly, there don't seem to be very noticeable light leaks. Yay.

I posted the rest of the roll on Flickr.

Mister Lonely Cat

I shot this video of Ace, my housemate’s cat, a few days ago.

I won't explain it more than to say that I did not arrange or set up this video in anyway. I found her like that when she was left alone in my housemate's room, and she triggered the audio herself. I grabbed the camera because it was so surreal.

(ps. you can see my beautiful new bike at the start!)

busy busy

I have been busily getting ready for my forthcoming trip to the States. It's only ten days til I go!

Yesterday I finished my internship at the Next Wave Festival, which was sad because I've had a ball. The Festival will take place in May while I am away so I won't get to attend anything!

One of the most exciting projects for an animal lover like me is definitely Dachshund UN. I edited this video below whilst interning. You must watch! So cute.

Also, I want to let anyone who is thinking about ordering one of my prints at the moment (am I being presumptuous? sorry!) please think about making your order before I head off overseas! I will still be able to post prints while I am away but I will probably only set aside one of two days during May so there will be a bit of a delay.

Happy Tuesday!

My portfolio site has had over a thousand views in the past few days thanks to a few very lovely mentions I have had on the interweb. I am so delighted and thrilled and happy to get such a warm response to my work. Thank you to Jaime at Art Milk and Erin at Design for Mankind for their kind words!

Easter weekend

Did you enjoy the break over Easter? I found that having an extra long weekend was great for getting things done around the house. I had a bit of a spring clean in the kitchen - I even cleaned out the fridge! Also I planted a few succulents in some cute tins to decorate the backyard.

On Sunday in the late afternoon I had a lovely time over a few glasses of prosecco with Joy, Lana and Kristen, who you can see in these photos. It was Joy's birthday. That's me on the left in the bottom photo with my girlfriend Kristen. Hi!

Some super rad Melbourne art and crafters

I was using Etsy Local search to browse Melbourne-based Etsy designers today and found lots of very talented locals. (Not surprising, it's Melbourne after all).

Here are some of the items I thought were really fantastic:

Necklace by Liz Kennedy

Brooch by Rubyjo

Laptop sleeve by ambette

Paintbrush brooch by Oddoneout

Some collages

I am not quite sure where to go with the series I have been working on lately. Feeling a bit directionless. This week instead of continuing with that series I just pasted and doodled these three collages. I kinda like them, but feel like they don't really mean anything. Is that a problem? I feel like it is.

I have had some nice feedback about my work in the last few weeks. Jena from Modish included The Mountain Waits in a post about mountains and rainbows. And Brittni from Papern Stitch wrote a lovely post about my photography. It's lovely to get some feedback when I am feeling unsure of things.
