If you have been reading my posts, you will know that I am a little obsessive about padlocks on bridges. This is something that happens quite a lot in European cities and has just started in Sydney on our beloved Harbour Bridge. This has to be one of my most favourite images of the padlocks. … Continue reading
If ever there was a flower that encapsulated Sydney in summer it’s the frangipani for sure. I love the white and yellow ones the best, but they do come in a pink hue. Most homes in Sydney will have one of these beautiful plants growing in their front garden. The scent of these flowers is … Continue reading
Days are long and warm here in Sydney at the moment. I have been lucky enough, where I live to get out and about to take a few photos. Here are some that I really liked.
I have finally discovered, after two years of living on the lower north shore of Sydney, where MacCallum Pool is. If you have the chance this summer, take a walk round Cremorne Point and have a swim here. The pool is FREE… yes FREE and offers the best views of the Harbour I think. All … Continue reading
I recently went to the MCA in Sydney and saw one of the best exhibitions they have had there in a long time. Wangechi Mutu is a Kenyan artist who lives in New York. Her work is provocative and amazing. I was totally blowen away. I would highly recommend visiting this exhibition if you are in Sydney. Details … Continue reading
After a false start to getting out and about with friends (ended up at the pub instead of festival!) I finally made it out to the Vivid Festival. Armed with my new camera, I got a few photos. This year was bigger than last year. I didn’t make it round to Darling Harbour, but still there was … Continue reading
I recently took a trip to Tasmania and was lucky enough to visit MONA – The Museum of Old and New Art. This museum is the work of Tasmanian millionaire David Walsh, an elusive man with a hunger for collecting art. The collection is provocative, exciting, scary, beautiful… left me rather speechless sometimes. But most importantly, … Continue reading
The strange and colourful world of Luna Park in Sydney…..
Just bought a new toy – a lovely digital SLR. Today here in Sydney it was the perfect day to take a walk around the beautiful Lavender Bay and test it out. So it was all about just seeing stuff I thought looked interesting, testing out settlings and basically enjoying the beautiful day. … Continue reading
The Biennale of Sydney is so worth taking time to see. My favourite artwork was by the artist Arin Rungjang “The Living Are Few But The Dead Are Many” 2012. This is a moving, tragic, yet beautiful and hopeful. It was so moving and broke my heart, I hope for all of their future. Please … Continue reading
Second artist date for me today. It’s the 18th Biennale of Sydney on and also the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney. This years Biennale of Sydney has the theme of “All Our Relations”, with the focus on how artist collaborate, create conversations and deal with compassion. For me, I found it inspirational to see … Continue reading
I am reading a new book, “The Artist Way” by Julia Cameron, about how to unlock your creativity and get past creative blocks and one of the exercises is to take yourself on an “artist date”. Once a week, I am taking a few hours a week to take your inner artist out, by myself. … Continue reading
Just a few more photos from the Vivid Festival earlier this month. It was an amazing festival and I am kind of sad that it’s all over for another year. Next year, I have got to get a better camera!
So it’s that time of the year again where Vivid Festival is on. The Vivid festival is the festival of lights, music and ideas. It’s just amazing. I am lucky enough to work close to the foreshore of Sydney Harbour. So off I trotted to check out Vivid’s light sculptures and the light on the sails … Continue reading
I have become perhaps a little obsessed with street art in Sydney and I have been trawling though all of my photos on my hard drive and came across these photos taken a few years ago in Manly, Sydney. There is a small alley way connecting The Corso with Rialto Square. There is a cobbler … Continue reading
I just came across this article in Sydney’s local rag “Daily Telegraph” which Wollongong Council has been removing the padlocks from a bridge in Mt Keira. It was one of my first posts that I wrote about the emergence of padlocks on the Sydney Harbour Bridge. If you want to rad the full article it … Continue reading
Here are some pics of street art in Newtown in Sydney. There is a plethora of street art in Newtown and I am going to make it a mission to get out and document as many as I possibly can. This mural was on Station Street, just off Enmore Road. Hope you enjoy these pics.
I was lucky enough to travel to France a year ago to catch up with an old flat mate of mine, Pierre. I had been to Paris a few times but never seemed to make it to Versailles. I thought I wold share some of my favourite photos on my blog, and hopefully this might … Continue reading
I went to a fantastic exhibition with my very dear friend Anna earlier this year. Tokujin Yoshioka piece “Waterfall” was simply breath-taking and so beautiful.I was so glad to have caught this exhibition and also to have seen the accompanying video which documented not only his work but the collaboration he has had with Swarovski, … Continue reading
