Week 1. My week in photos – Melbourne

This week I started my first photo project. A photo a day for a year.  I want to pick up my camera every day and share the way I am seeing things.  I want to think about who I am going to photograph, visualise more, continue my love affair with light.  I want to push myself.  I want much than “smile”.  I want to connect.  I want step out of comfort zone.  I want to ask a stranger if I can photograph them.  This is my first week.  I am in Australia.

The first image above was taken when walking to the beach.  My other cousin lives in these amazing sand dune and this is the path to the beach.  I love the composition and story to this photo.  The second image is of my husband and son.  I waited patiently to capture this frame, the reflections in this beach were inspiring.

On day 4 I had a get together with friends and I asked the group who would be my subject for my project and this young man said he would.  He is 11 and I loved chatting with him.  We were discussing his sisters and I love this natural, expressive smile.  Beautiful.

This photo wasn’t an official day photo but I just had to include it.  I managed to capture this photo of my sister and her boyfriend.  I love how happy they are.

Another very special person.  Her mummy is more like a sister than a friend, so much time has passed since I moved to England. We’ve both got married and had kids and I LOVE that I still feel like I know her inside out. She has become a wonderful mother and wife. Love, Love, Love!!!  The last one was taken just after midnight and is also of said friend and her husband, yes I was a bit tipsy, I love this photo because they are in it, the memories and the random plane.
