After playing with the frogs, I went searching for flora! This is a bromeliad flower taken with the same technique - using a torch at night. I was using my old Canon rebel which has a monochrome mode - a great idea for beginners who are learning to “see” the world as forms and shapes.
And there I was. Standing breathless as the ocean hugged my feet with each fizzling wave. There I was. Captivated by the pink glow that smeared across the horizon - something so magical and ethereal that I questioned if I was awake or in a dream. Yet there I was. There I was with an ocean before me - calmed by it’s meditating flow and heartbeat motion, yet intimidated by its size; unsure of what lay between me and the warm light that bathed and shun upon me. A light that seemed to call my name - unsure if its fire was calling me in or warning me to turn back.
I sat down. As the ocean began to pull me in with each dragging wave - I couldn’t help but recall the anxious thoughts that had worried me throughout that day. A contemplation of the future - of how I am both excited but worried for the unpredictable pathway that lay before me. So keen I am to open the door and find out where my life shall take me, but also how insistent I am to live in comfort and contentment.
And there I was. Viewing that pink flame across the ocean as if it was the future itself. Something that seems so tangible and accessible, but merely an illusion. An object that we will never be able to grasp, something that we can never chase or reach - that the more we run after it, the more it escapes from our grasp.
Bewildered and bewitched by it, yet overwhelmed by the secrets that it holds. There I was. Standing up to view it as its last seconds escaped from my experience and cloaked the sky in a sea of charcoal. Thinking to myself of how uncertain my future really is - of whether it holds fate, joy, or deceit - or perhaps all. Yet despite such anxiety and uncertainty, I couldn’t help but smile - for I told myself to prepare and brace myself for what this unknown future shall hold for me.
There I was.

For some reason this photo didn’t work properly (so I am deleting and doing a #take2
). These pretty little flowers are all the way up the top of #mtngungun
. I couldn’t help but take a photo of the sunlight touching them 🧡
Christmas is almost here, which means it’s usually hot as fuck. Which also means waterfall adventures. It’s been a jam packed year and I can’t wait for some time off⛰
overlooking Farewell Spit, on the very top tip of the southern island of New Zealand earlier this year. This was at the end of our incredible day at Wharariki Beach watching seals, we drove to this point to watch the sunset and no one was around except for lots and lots of sheep!
We’re heading on a road trip down to The Blue Mountains in a week and I am SO VERY EXCITED! I haven’t been there since I was really young, so it will be great to see the area with fresh, appreciative eyes.
I love this human so very much and realised he hasn’t featured on my feed for a while. I guess we need a holiday!

It's been a while since I posted anything on Instagram, but I've been wanting to get back into photography for a while now and decided a little trip to Curtis Falls was just what was needed. With all the rain we've been having recently the waterfall was absolutely stunning!
Does the thought of me keep you up at night? 🥀🔪

1/3 Push yourself to create differently. Play with light, observe the natural world. Find frogs in the garden. Keep scrolling for the rest of the series 💚🌿🍃🐸 Litoria fallax, Eastern Dwarf Tree Frog, NSW Australia
2/3 the night is dark and full of froggies 😂 This image is part of a series I did a few years ago. I was bored with my photography and went out one night into the garden with a torch and played with light.
3/3 A few years ago I was bored and went out into the garden one night with a torch and my camera. I found the night alive with Litoria Fallax- Eastern Dwarf Tree Frogs and spent hours playing with lighting and angles. Nothing fancy was needed. The recent rain this weekend made me think of these pics. Looking at them also reminds me to be more playful in my photography. What simple trick do you use for striking images?
Day 9: After making camp I spent the rest of the arvo napping on the mezzanine inside a hut, baking from the huge glass window. Pure bliss !
Making good time but hope to put in some bigger days soon...
You know that euphoric feeling you get, when the new person starts at your work. And you’re no longer the dumbest or ugliest fucker there? Yep! still waiting for that feeling 🙄

Something in my head, hiding 🥀🥀
Who got flooded in last night? The Mid North Coast of Aus got a huge amount of rain with localised flooding in many streams and rivers! Our property is singing its rainsong and everything is washed and lush.
