Some pictures Pas took of me being in awe / really cold on Mount Wellington last month.

My and the sweet nature ball.
his week we finally finished our group project, and it actually surpassed all of our expectations. Reconnect took us three months to make and was generally a huge pain in the ass, but on the last morning as we hung it up and covered over the last remaining holes with moss, fig leaves, vines and sticks, it suddenly was beautiful and we were all really happy.
The project was initially inspired by this Andy Goldsworthy quote: "We often forget that we are nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we've lost our connection to ourselves."
The whole room has begun to smell like decaying leaves, a pleasant change from the paint smells, and the floor is slowly being covered by little twigs and dried up leaves.
It was a really lovely project to work on, as it is super different to my normal mode of work. It felt really good to be working with such tactile organic materials, and I'm really excited to work on and create similar projects maybe later on down the road.
Shi came by to get cosy with the nature sphere. Here she is being a sweet weirdo like always.
Photographs from this year, from some of my most favourite places and with some of my most favourite people. I'm missing the Otways like crazy going over these images, and the sun and the sand!
We just got back from four beautiful days camping in the Otways. It's been almost a year since I've been in those incredible forests... too long! I took lots of photographs on my Olympus, who is glad to be in use again after a few months of neglect.
Cups of tea in the camping chairs, early mornings with steam billowing off the ground and tents, fat little birds calling all morning and rain drops hitting the top of the tent. We bathed in Aire River which was unbelievably cold and cleansing, and tried not to let the territorial little yabbies get our toes, and on Monday morning I met a fox who took me exploring before anyone else had woken up. I feel completely refreshed and relaxed, and ready to go again.
Before coming home Pas and I spent the night in a beautiful little b'n'b, which had the most incredible wallpaper-place mat matching scheme that either of us had ever seen, and the toastiest fire/bath/robe situation that we could have hoped for. It was the most satisfying end to a camping trip that I have ever experienced. More photographs coming soon!
Behold, the wallpaper ------
Images from a hot summer and a sturdy little disposable underwater camera.
But now terrifically it's raining, cold and dark outside, and I'm going to have a bath and a glass of wine and be so happy about it being Friday night.
