My Great Uncle and Aunt live in a house surrounded by trees and paddocks on Mt Tamborine -And we spent Easter Saturday there with them. We did lots of lovely things while we were there; Jean acted as my model for many photos, we went for a short rainforest walk -and a huge leech managed to find its way on to my leg, we had a fun easter egg hunt set up by Dad, and I got to bring home a pile of at least 15 old French books of my Great Grandfather's, as well as beauttiful flowers to decorate my room with. The garden up there is beautiful -you just can't beat gardens grown in red soil.
Now I just need a seperate self for all the french books.. the titles just look so glamorous because they aren't in english...
I also madly took photographs with the Holga I mentioned recently.. I tried out some double exposures so this roll of film is definitely going to be interesting in terms of seeing the results!!
On a different note, forgive me for the inconsistent photo sizes, as some of these I uploaded straight from my computer, not from Flickr... To make up for this -and also because there are alot...- I have given little subtitles for most pictures :)
Jean was after some swampy shots..
I had to get Jean to take a photo of me.. Since I was upset that I did not take a tripod for some selfies ;)
This is me... desperately trying to photograph myself with the beautiful petal covered ground.. although not very succesfully, as I was hindered my my 50mm prime lens... Oh well.
This is my uncle -he acts all tough, but is really lovely anyway :)
These flowers came home with me. I love Camelia's (the dark pink ones), they look so magnificent on the bush.. but sadly the majority of their petals now cover my bookcase, as they don't seem to like the idea of being placed in a vase.
Afternoon tea before coming home.
P.S. Happy Easter! Does anyone else feel nautious at the thought of chocolate around Easter, but eats it anyway??
