Something for the weekend


So no sooner was I feeling better then BAM! I’m hit with a head cold. Ah, the joys of toddlers and their germs. This auntie has had to keep her head down while she works on her new course (which I am LOVING and so proud of) but that’s left no extra time for blogging (hence the silence — thank you to those of you who’ve reached out to make sure i was okay!) There was a window of health on Tuesday so I popped into town to have lunch with a friend who was visiting from the States — we took a few portraits of each other, much to the amusement of the Big Issue seller behind us. I’ll share the portraits next week — she’s a hottie.

I enjoy shooting with my analogue cameras, digital cameras and my iPhone equally — it’s all about creating images and recording moments for me — so when Annie Leibovitz pulled out her iPhone I gave a whooop of joy. Decades of photographic snobbery crumbling right there!

Something for the weekend


I went to bed on Tuesday feeling weird and promptly woke up the next morning with some sorta illness that doesn’t have a name — it’s a mash-up of the flu, tonsillitis and a migraine. FUN! I’m off to the doctor’s in an hour to see if she can do anything for me. However, I am so committed to my Friday posts there was no way I was going to let this one go by…. plus it’s 11/11/11, so consider this your little reminder to make a wish :)
