On Documentation & Sharing

Over the past few months I have been blessed with travelling and many reasons for celebration.  So many new experiences, places, cultures and learning opportunities to be immersed in. I've been documenting them in daily journal notes, iPhone pictures, and dozens of folders of photos when I've made the effort to bring my SLR with me. But, alas, documentation and sharing don't emerge simultaneously. With instantaneous aspects of social media, 'gramming and what not, it would seem easy to get everything down. However, when one is in the middle of a Thai massage, the world of online sharing seems like a world away. It's been wonderful being totally focused on enjoying the moment (something which I struggled with for a while, often only experiencing things behind the lens). But just as there is time to put the camera away, there is also a time to bring it out. The joy of sharing. A moment captured is a moment preserved; crystalised and frozen in motion. It can be revisited, re-lived and can be a source of remembrance and visual note-taking. But what is an idea, a note, if not shared? Of course I don't want to burden you with all my life stories; we may have never even met. But after an elongated blog-cation, there are a few instances that would be nice to share with you. Apologies as they are not in exact order, but then again what is life if not a myriad of unexpected encounters?

Celebrating my 21st birthday!
Celebrating some more!

Coogee to Bondi walks with my godma.

Aurielle, my goddaughter, at her little sister's first, and mum's 40th, combined birthday party. A gloriously sunny day, a jumping castle and musical statues, pass-the-parcel and cake eating. Piñata hitting in the garden - watching children in blindfolds hitting a giant butterfly is really quite a sight! 

Introducing Hugh Fearnley-Whiphistail! 
He is endearingly named after my favourite chef, 
River Cottage's Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

That's all for now folks, thanks for tuning in!
