Fitting title for this post actually because as I type this, seventeen years ago, I came to be. Oh yes, today I am 17. 

I was thinking earlier about what i believe in. I decided I am one of those people who believe people are born for purpose. Born to be something, born to do something, be somebody etc etc. And then i came to this conclusion tonight that we shouldn't have to worry about who we are meant to be/what we are meant to become because whatever it is, you were born to do. So I'm thumbing my way through these University booklets, and I'm breaking a sweat over what I want to do, when really que sera, sera baby. Fate has a funny way of working it out. But you should trust it, regardless. And when you feel lost and in the midst of the unknown, try and trust that things will work out when you least expect them too.

I started taking pictures because i clicked on the wrong link in Google and I was quite literally instantly inspired. The changes since then have literally blown all of my first expectations out of the park.At all. I didn't think a couple of years ago I'd be holding a photography exhibition. Instead i thought I'd be sitting the UMAT test for Med School. But you go with the flow anyway, because it may just be what you are meant to be doing. 

Enough of my rant that probably didn't make sense - I need sleep.

Thank-you for alllll of the birthday emails/tweets/messages, much love,

Lucy, a while ago now. Love it all the same:

Battle on.

Not only is photography my passion but it's a huge form of procrastination.

It's constant. It never fades, ever.

I wondered a lot last year if this 'hobby' was a phase, if it was something that would come and go, like many of my hobbies did when i was younger (Cough, wanting to be a world class roller-skater cough.)

But it never did. Instead it's become stronger. I'm my strongest behind a lens. Maybe it's because behind a lens, you can create the world you want. You can jump out of the one your in, and create something for yourself. 

It's with everyday passing that i begin to realize this is what i need. Not just want i want, but what i need, too. Somehow, somewhere my life needs to be molded around me, and my camera. No this does not mean i will be walking hand in hand along a moonlit beach having romantic walks with my camera. I need more in life but i figure if you're following dreams, the rest will follow.

It's also with everyday that i notice photography is not something you turn off when you want a break. You never stop thinking in frames. Documenting life and a living it are no longer two separate things, they have meshed together.

So, this post is sort of a promise to myself. To look back on when I need the upward thinking and remember that this is what i need. And to stop at nothing.

It feels like an intermission tonight. The break between the busy. 

Things have been unbelievably busy these past few weeks. Unbelievable.10,000 things going on at once. I'm forgetting to step back and remember where i am and what I'm doing.

Anyway, onto some news...

1. I heart Faces. I've written an article for the wonderful, amazing, incredible Iheartfaces, (aka the biggest honor ever..) and it can be found here if you havent seen it already: the link, click here!

2. Don't forget to 'like' my facebook page: click here to stay up-to-date!

3. Exhibition. I am excited and nervous, thrilled and stressed about finalising my 'Year 12 Research Project' with my very first photographic exhibition appropriately titled 'Memory Catcher.' Advertisement here wooo:

Finally, tomorrow night something exciting is happening. Those reading who know me well/attend my school know exactly what it is and are probably just as equally excited. I will post on that later... ;)

A photo just for fun of the boy who's been noticably absent from this place for quite some time:

Love, love, love

I heart Sunflare.

It's been a very long time since I've entered at IHeartFaces, but with the theme this week - I could not resist.

And while I have so many photos filled to the brim with sunshiney goodness, my photo for today is from the WOMADELAIDE festival I attended on Friday. Not only does this image capture the perfectness of this place, i believe it captures the essence of the festival - so relaxing. Oh and the light just makes me melt. So does my subject.

Take a trip to iheartfaces for more wonderful entries,

Happy Sunshiney days,
