    The Infinity of Beauty

    The Infinity of Beauty

    It's 7 am here in the island of Kani - Maldives. The resort is tranquil and flows perfectly with its natural surroundings, there's a feeling of peace and harmony. There are only a few people around, it's still early but the sky is already bright and, in the horizon, I spot the early mellow waves lapping at the shore. The ocean stretches for miles around, its beauty is infinite and its power, limitless.

    In Awe

    In Awe

    In September last year, I visited my daughter, who is now living in Norway with her now Norwegian fiancé. My daughter and I spent an amazing 3 weeks sighseeing around the south part of Iceland, and then up the north west part of Norway, to the Senja/Lofoten regions. For an Australian lad, who is so accustomed to wide-open landscapes, these regions were a massive contrast and my jaw almost got sore being blown away by the startling rugged beauty of these two countries.

    Antiquity & Strength

    Antiquity & Strength

    When you see an acorn, what does it mean to you? Does it resemble anything? Symbolise anything in your life? Or does it simply have no meaning or consequence at all, and you’d naturally just pass it by?

    My Venture Into Polaroid Photography

    My Venture Into Polaroid Photography

    I originally got a photography camera in order to have a good quality camera for cosplay photos, but I also wanted to go beyond using photography for cosplay and see what unique photos I could do. In 2011, I started testing out my photos before cosplay conventions to test the settings. I was impressed with the outcome of the photos, it had a great quality, but I wasn't satisfied with it. I didn't like the way I captured this moment I saw with my eyes. I wanted to take a photography class to learn how I could improve myself.

    St Ives Hilltop

    St Ives Hilltop

    I took this shot down in St Ives, a beautiful seaside village on the tip of Cornwall, United Kingdom. A keen photographer I am used to using my Canon or trusty Nikon however on this day I kicked myself to only have had my iPhone X in my pocket. Nonetheless I took plenty of shots that day, the light was dreamy for early March, if a little chilly and surprisingly my little iPhone managed to produce some lovely images including this one. Having walked up a big hill to the side of the beautiful town of St Ives I came to the peak and peered back down to the view below.. hey presto! A beautiful beach scene lay in front of me, already perfectly framed by the hill leading down to the waters edge, the grass rippling in the wind and the golden sand and an almost mediterreanean looking blue sea awaiting me in the background. With virtually nobody else around apart from my loyal canine companion it was a moment of complete surreal serenity. When you are confronted with extreme natural beauty, for me anyway, it made me think about how small we are on the face of the Earth, yet how we become so engulfed in the bubble of our day to day life, trials and tribulations that often we forget to stop and take in the natural wonders that lay around us. It also made me consider how us humans have such an enormous impact on our planet and it's climate. How we all need to do more to protect the Earth, it's air and it's oceans - including the wildlife it sustains. It made me appreciate being alive, even just having the ability to take the fresh sea air deep into my lungs - I felt both very small and also very blessed to be stood there in that moment. It brought back memories of childhood holidays in the UK with my grandparents, which were even along the same stretch of Cornwall coast. What it also made me realise was my old ideas that only the very best cameras could take images worthy of anyone's attention was totally wrong. With the right setting, the right framing, the right light - all you need is that smart phone you carry around all day in your pocket. I used a square frame pre set for those instagram worthy shots, and using in-app settings amped up some of the colour and sharpness of the image..hey presto. Regrettably it is not the most high resolution image having been tweaked but still a lovely image in my opinion nonetheless and looks great on my instagram page! With the worldwide pandemic upon us it has given many people time to reflect, reassess parts of their lives and excitedly make plans for the future be it with family, friends or a loved one. It has been tough at times, but once we all pull through - the place we call home will be duly waiting for us to enjoy its timeless beauty. We must all do whatever we can to help preserve it for our children and their children after that. Post lockdown - I intend to visit some more of Englands natural landscapes and wonders - IPhone firmly in hand whenever I don't have the energy to lug around a tank of a camera or two! Modern technology allows us to instantaneously capture a special memory, a perfect moment in time or just a ruddy good picture! It gives us the immense power of instantly sharing our images, videos and creativity with our friends, our family and the rest of the world beyond.. all with a few effortless swipes and taps!

Nonetheless I took plenty of shots that day, the light was dreamy for early March, if a little chilly and surprisingly my little iPhone managed to produce some lovely images including this one. Having walked up a sand bank that seemed to go on and on for miles I came to the peak and peered over the crest.. hey presto! A beautiful beach scene lay in front of me, already perfectly framed by the sand tracks leading the way to the waters edge, the high floral grasses rippling in the wind and the golden sand and deep blue sea awaiting me in the background. With virtually nobody else around apart from my loyal canine companion it was a moment of complete surreal serenity.

    A Moment of Clarity

    A Moment of Clarity

    As I write this story, I am brought back to a moment that I remember so fondly. A time when I finally came to the realization that we, as humans, are so small in this immense world. I stood on this boardwalk in September 2016 while studying abroad in Australia, took a look around, and realized how very small I was compared to the vast rainforest that I was in. Only being 21 at the time, I was still naive to many realities of the world. Having moved much of my belongings to Australia, completely on my own, for the next six months, I was quickly awoken to how big our world is. This “awakening” happened through many experiences, but this experience certainly sticks out the most, and will be one that I remember for the rest of my life.

    What a view

    What a view

    When you think of summer, what is the first thing that pops in your head? For me, it’s the beach. Luckily I live close to it. I can walk to the beach; it is only eight blocks from my home. It has been almost a month in a half since I had seen the beach. So, I want to talk about the photo that I took when I went for a walk with my husband, Ian, and my mom. On a Sunday afternoon, the beach was crowded with people and their pets. My husband and my mother were getting ready to head home when I saw “The Huntington Beach Pier” from the parking lot. It was such a beautiful site, almost as if I hadn’t seen “The Huntington Beach Pier” in years. I knew right there. I had to take a photo.
