Enjoying the warmer weather and the longer days.
We're looking forward to the end of the year. To summer. To a break with Papa. To Christmas holidays. Beach days, salty skin, sandy sheets and sun-kissed locks. Watermelons and mangoes.
I've decided to continue on at the documented, in the new year ... and I'll push myself to do a 365 project. It'll be fun, right?

I'm a little torn. I
I LOVED shooting the wedding. The social aspect, the idea that it was work, but in a beautiful location, capturing such stunning, sacred moments. I even loved the physical aspect of it all, the ache at the end of the day from holding the camera for so long.
I'm not even sure where I'm going with this ramble, I just felt like unloading some thoughts.
Maybe, tell me about your photos. Your thoughts on photography.
ps the photo above is of my adorable niece Ottilie, exploring my parents' garden in the magical afternoon light.

clockwise from top left (in case you're wondering) - a gocco print snail on calico, partially embroidered; a prints charming paisley panel, partially embroidered; my embroidery threads; a tin of felt and fabric scraps; some paper pieced diamonds; umbrella prints scraps; a partially embroidered gocco print mermaid, for my niece Ottilie; two kantha stitched envelopes, one complete, one in progress, inspired by an Alex Falkiner workshop; and one incomplete panel from Alex Falkiner's drawing with thread workshop. Whew!

My sister Celeste is a seriously talented photographer. Almost a month ago, she professionally shot her first wedding. And she was generous enough to ask me to be her second shooter. Although I had my reservations (I'm not a trained photographer), I was happy to help and grateful for the opportunity.
Shooting a wedding is intense - but in a wonderful way. There is so much emotion to capture, so many moments, a rollercoaster, whirlwind day. I would love to do it again sometime. Fingers crossed.
To see more from the wedding, have a look on Celeste's blog.
