A morning in the life of Mullumbimby

Mullum Music Festival-8

Admittedly today is a special morning in the life of Mullumbimby. We travelled north to the Mullum Music Festival to surround ourselves with music, colour and community and that's exactly what we found. Mullum hummed with a vibrancy that made my insides dance. It was all about the music, of course. I didn't take many pictures of the performers, ...

A morning in the life of medieval times

A morning in the life of medieval times - feature

Last weekend we went back in time at the St Ives Medieval Faire. There was jousting - actual jousting. The people fascinated me and not just because they were hundreds of years old... Who are these wonderfully quirky people who spend their weekends dressed in handmade linen garb, drinking mead and talking about their feudal lord? Who ...

A morning in the life of Nawaka

Nawaka Fiji

We visited the beautiful village of Nawaka during our holiday to Fiji. We were invited to come and meet the chief and see the village by our new friend, Micali, who worked at the resort we stayed at. Nawaka is one of five villages that are under the jurisdiction of the same chief. It's a very traditional Fijian village quite apart from the fact ...

"But why do you want me to take your photo?" I asked, secretly thrilled that I didn't even have to ask. "I want to spread my beauty to all," he said and laughed and ...

A morning in the life of Glenworth Valley

Glenworth Valley-3

On a heavy, misty morning, my friend Laura took me to visit Pegs and Spanner. Spanner is her darling horse and he shares his paddock in the Glenworth Valley with his girl Pegs. It was so very far away from where we live, but less than an hour's drive. Arriving felt like time travel. The clouds gave everything a brand-new sheen and brought ...

A morning in the life of Balmoral Beach

Balmoral-7

Recently I had the good fortune of doing a photography course with Robyn from Please Don't Say Cheese. I was given the morning as part of a competition over on Ness's One Perfect Day and it was one perfect morning for sure. Balmoral is so utterly beautiful at any time of day, but especially first thing. It has always been a favourite place for ...
