For The Love of Paris: a photowalk

It’s a perfect Parisian evening. A light breeze dances through the Jardin Du Luxembourg with the sweetness of red and purple blossoms. Tanned bodies sprawl across the lawn; bare skin against electric green. Little white triangles tack across the glossy fountain pond as children run alongside with sailors’ glee. Powder-green chairs sit in messy clusters;Continue reading “For The Love of Paris: a photowalk”

A Photo Walk in Melbourne, Australia

Crisp leaves scrape along the windy path. Coffee grind scents the morning air. A dog dressed in tartan trots next to a lady in black. I’m as comfortable here, walking camera-in-hand, as I’ve been anywhere in the world. Melbourne is cold and exciting. It inspires creative footsteps. It urges me to capture the quirks ofContinue reading “A Photo Walk in Melbourne, Australia”

Falling in Love with Lisbon, Portugal

Pink dawn lingers on olive groves as I wake on the train to Lisbon. A hazy blue hangs above the distant horizon, hinting at the salty river beyond. I am excited to see the city that so many have dubbed their offbeat favourite and can feel butterflies building in my belly as we approach. SaintContinue reading “Falling in Love with Lisbon, Portugal”

Barcelona express: food, sights and culture in two days

Here is a little post written during my visit to Barcelona a couple of weeks ago… now that I’m walking el Camino across Spain, Barcelona streets seem so far away.

Wide angle: a photo walk through Istanbul, Turkey

I am feeling inspired by the rich cityscape of Istanbul: the kaleidoscope of colours, the exotic scents that hang on humid air, the lovely clash and clamour on the streets. Some of my favourite days here have been spent wandering the labyrinth of possibilities, taking time to notice and capture the quirks that collectively createContinue reading “Wide angle: a photo walk through Istanbul, Turkey”

Impressions of Istanbul, Turkey

The thing about Istanbul is, it’s not an easy place to sum up. I’ve sat here scribbling impressions for a hour and my list is long and varied. From the hundreds of ornate mosques that call the city to pray each day, to the high-end fashion and modern bohemian vibe, it is clear that IstanbulContinue reading “Impressions of Istanbul, Turkey”

The road to Glasgow, Scotland: the Highlands, Ben Nevis and Loch Lomond

When you look at the squiggly black line on a map, it’s hard to know what is in store for you on the road ahead. That 3cm patch of green ‘vegetation’  never quite translates to those tumbling fields of pastel green, the scraggly woodland thickets or proud lines of Scottish pines; that blob of blueContinue reading “The road to Glasgow, Scotland: the Highlands, Ben Nevis and Loch Lomond”

Wide angle: a day out in Brisbane

Brisbane is a city of possibilities; an accessible hub of cultural adventures. After living here for almost three years, I am still regularly amazed at how a seemingly quiet Saturday morning can transform into a day of unexpected delights. This Saturday was one of those days; unscheduled, uncompromised spontaneous adventure. 10.30am: The morning sunshine hasContinue reading “Wide angle: a day out in Brisbane”
