I have been busy. Uni finishes for the semester soon, I can't wait!
I am hoping to enter the photography competition for the Brisbane Exhibition (aka Ekka), however I am terrible at deciding between photographs!

This was taken on Jean's iPhone with the instagram app, which I downloaded so I could use it. I wish I could have a device that could just enable me to always use this app, without having to get an iPhone. I think too much access to Facebook, and the internet in general would be bad for me.
The following were taken on Mum's iPhone.

Apparently the Greek Festival or, Paniyiri, is known for the awesome honey puffs? Well this past weekend was my first time trying them -They were pretty awesome.
Pretty things at Southbank.
West End is beautiful.. Sort of sad that some houses are as dilapidated as they are.
P.S. sorry for the huge images this time.. I really can't decide on the best way to add photos that I don't upload to Flickr.

Yes, it is. How could it not be with its sweet little gate, red door, and a window peeking out between the green tiled roof ?
I dare you to find a house in Brisbane more amazing than this one. I remember the first time I noticed this house.. I drive up that street just to see it, and I walk my boyfriend to church just to see it. He said there was a proposal for demolition/development sign out the front at one stage.. and now I am concerned for its safety. Hopefully they will just sell it.. and I can go to the open house so I can see inside it.
One thing you should know, is that I am fond of houses - I can't wait to have one of my own. Although we aren't bursting at the seams with gorgeous terrace houses ( like Melbourne...), Brisbane has its few hidden treasures about the place, and I love stumbling across them. Have you ever noticed in the Queen St Mall? The shops has the most amazing fronts if you look above their signs.
Speaking of lovely architecture, here are two photos of is this cute little church in Oxford St, Bulimba, that I walked past the other day while I was there. I just wanted to sit a girl down on the seat outside the door and snap a few pictures! I guess that is how I rate a place now.. What it would be like in a photograph...

The room was naturally such a lovely golden hue!
Did I ever mention how amazing my Dad makes the garden look?
Coconut and Rhubarb Cake. I made this last week as well. It is so Yum -Women's Weekly recipes alway get it right.

This is Rachel and Beethoven. Rachel is an old school friend of mine, and Beethoven is her lovely Percheron. He is so huge! They are both such lovely characters. I am a big horse fan, so it was so lovely to take some photographs with one.
They were amazing in the photographs. I love them, so I hope you enjoy them too. I will have more later on in the month as well; and I did a few shots on film. I always forget that I have it around my shoulder, and get carried away with my digital.
Which is your fave?
Thankyou Rachel and Beethoven! xx

These are some photographs that I mainly took for a photo assignment at uni. I love the old(er) people in my life :). That said, I generally just love elderley people. They can be so lovely, and it amazes how me how much they must have seen in their lifetime.
This is Nan. She lives in Toowoomba. She recently wrote me a letter, posted along with two vintage slips. I wrote her back saying thankyou, which has begun a little letter writing thing between us now.
This is an old friend staying with us at the moment. I have always wanted to photograph somone sitting in that seat with the light like that.
And this is Uncle Phil, Nan's brother. He lives at Mt Tamborine and gives us yummy avocados!
I think they're beautiful :)

So here are some more photos of my friend Brittney that I shot back in April. Here is the previous post with some others.
I had a brilliant shoot with Rachel and her stunning horse on the weekend, and I am so happy with the results. It is very sad that she is selling him soon.
Expect the results later this week.
Enjoy! And have a lovely Monday :)

This is my favourite french book. It was bought at my local Red Cross shop. I don't remember how much I paid for it.. But I have learnt more from it, than I have from the book/cd's that I paid $90 for...
It teaches me lovely, yet slightly pointless sentences such as "Le garcon est dans la salle, " and "Nous sommes toujours dans le jardin de Paul."
I have 28 other French books now.. which came from my Great Grandfather's collection of books. Some of them will come in handy; And some will have to wait to be read, when (if) I can read French better.
Today I edited my PR drafts, ate more Easter chocolate, dyed my work uniform the colours of a rainbow (not on purpose..), and wasted alot of time looking at photographs -as per usual. Tomorrow I am taking some photos with my friend Rachel, and her beautiful Percheron horse, Beethoven. I'm so excited! I love horses!
Au revoir! Have a happy weekend! :)

Just organising my sets on Flickr and I realised that recently I have lot of pictures of trees.. Not sure if it is just because I went camping, or because high school really did teach me to be a tree-hugger with their yearly tree-planting ceremonies...
Trees really are so beautiful and magestic, and they make cool shapes with their branches, so how could you not love them?
And yes, each photo has my favourite model in it... He can just stand there and make a photograph look infinitely better. :)
I might wait to post all my other camping photos, because I have some photos on a roll of film, that I have to finish shooting first!
And lastly, why is Brisbane weather still so moody?! I wish it would get itself sorted, or at least make itself a little more predictable.
Hope your week is off to a lovely start!

After school, I planned to never go camping again, or at least I was very reluctant too. This past weekend, I took myself by surprise by agreeing to go camping. And I survived. Although next time I will try to find a place with showers and flushing toilets..
I have terrible hayfever, and must do my PR assessment -So more camping photos later!!
