Fresh eyes.

My life has felt out of focus lately.



A little like this aeroplane. 

But tonight, i picked up my camera. Through the lens, with fresh eyes, I focused the world.

I cleared the blur.

I calmed myself.

I am dependent on my passion, dependent on creativity and forever craving new photos. But sometimes life gets in the way. However, being away from doing what I love to do, shows me that it isn't just a phase, but now an inbuilt part of me. The feeling i get from being behind the lens is irreplaceable, and i know that no matter how long i am away from my camera, the feeling is still there the moment i pick it back up. I am myself again. I can see the world with fresh eyes again. And how incredible that is. 

And in other news:

1. The blog has had another make-over - can you see? Tell me what you think, and don't forget to check out the new pages :)

2. My last school swimming carnival ever - cue the sigh.

  1. Hi darling! Love the new pages! I understand what you need about the camera. While I adore words and writing, I think I get more inspiration out of images. I often start with a photo and work my way from there. You're special xx

  2. You have got to be the only sixteen year old I know, i've ever known, that has a soul like yours. It stuns me. Your photos are not images, but art sweet girl. You are something indeed. I have just loved watching your story.

  14. Did you just say aeroplane? This California girl is smiling. I just want to hear you say "aeroplane" because "airplane" with my boring American accent is so not romantic.
    I love the aeroplane picture by the way. :)
