Inspired by an old dictionary

In November 2014 my lovely husband gave me an India Paper Edition of Webster’s New International Dictionary of the English Language published in 1919. It spurned the Dictionary Project, a series of images inspired by the words and definitions contained in the impossibly thin pages of this beautiful old book. The latest entry is inspired… Continue reading Inspired by an old dictionary

Barek Art Timelapse

One of the really exciting things about the move away from full-time professional photography has been the way it's prompted me to plan and create things without thinking about how I might be able to use them to encourage bookings. Now I'm doing work purely because I want to, which is liberating. It's also encouraging… Continue reading Barek Art Timelapse

Little Details

Bride with bouquet of silk flowers and feathers. www.shyfoxphotography.com.au

It's amazing how much attention is given to the little details that make up a wedding. I adore the incorporation of feathers into this bridal bouquet by Lilyvale Flowers to make it just a little bit different. This picture is another in the series from our recent styled shoot - a classic garden wedding. ~… Continue reading Little Details

A prayer

I'm one of those people who has always loved to roam around cemeteries, reading inscriptions on headstones, and admiring the amazing sculptures that grace so many of the graves. This beautiful angel is in Toowong Cemetery. Pav

Zebra glass

I spent most of today at my desk setting up the new look on my website (I'm so pleased with it!). A one stage I glanced down and noticed that the sun coming through my window was hitting my zebra paperweight just perfectly. It's amazing the effect the right lighting can have. ~ Pav

Melbourne

I have a very dear friend who's planning to move interstate soon. She seems to be happily immersing herself in images related to her soon to be new home, so I thought I'd contribute.

The perfect end to a weekend of adventure.

This weekend we decided to treat ourselves to a long, long weekend at the coast. We filled it with adventures – spotting the cute creatures at a wildlife sanctuary, visiting a regional art gallery, sailing, kayaking, and snorkelling. Then we finished it off with an amazingly indulgent morning of relaxation at Enrich Retreat and Day… Continue reading The perfect end to a weekend of adventure.

Bunnies!

During a scouting trip to the location for an upcoming wedding we discovered a bonus feature of the resort - live bunnies trimming the lawns. I'm interested to see whether they appear during the ceremony!

Look up.

I'm forever being amazed by the things I can walk past every day and not notice. I didn't realise there were so many gems hidden in plain sight in the Queen Street Mall. All I had to do was look up.

Kitsune.

The kitsune (fox) statues at Inari Shrines remain some of my favourite things in Japan. This one is at the Jorinji Shrine in Matsumoto. Worshippers often place hats and/or bibs on the statues as a sign of respect.

Beautiful Dancer.

From the Sculptors Queensland Annual Exhibition at Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens. The sculpture is Giselle (2011) by Dawn Conn of Ruby and Iris. I've been looking longingly at the pieces in her Etsy shop for awhile now. I know it's only a matter of time before I purchase one.
