Life is the heart of a rainbow

It’s seriously been a while. With my travel libido at an all time low these past two semesters, owed in most part to the final throes of my degree, I have done zero exploring and spent most of my time indoors on the books. But it’s done, after four and a half years. No more study! Since completing my final prac last […]

Maiala: Quiet place

Sometimes ‘getting away’ can be as basic as taking a drive to the edge of town, and very bloody lucky for us, the edge of town is a scrubby bushland at the end of our street. It’s the start of a stunning drive that winds some thirty kilometres West of Brisbane’s inner city, all the way to the lush […]

You spin me right round, Brisbane!

Lucky for us locals, Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art is celebrating it’s tenth anniversary with an incredible exhibition – Sugar Spin: You, Me, Art and Everything. Several crowd favourites from the past decade have made a comeback to the gallery and there are a few distinctive and dynamic newbies. Dominating the entrance to the space is a vibrant, impossible not […]

Photodump: the last days of Winter

After a whirlwind South America trip, coming down from the Colombian experience has been made all the easier by focusing on the beauty in our own backyard. With the last days of Winter reminding us very much of Spring and a lengthy visit from my parents, returning to the usual routine has been pretty special. These snap shots are […]

Getting our art fix at the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art 8

For visitors to Australia, it is impossible not to see how heavily neighbouring countries influence our food, our culture and in many ways, our appreciation of art. As part of a larger Asian Pacific community, with about a quarter of our population born overseas, the ‘face’ of our Australian society can’t be simplified with a description of one […]

Photodump: Postcode 4006

Autumn is coming to an end in our little sub-tropical city, making way for bright blue Winter skies and fresh winds. Perfect strolling on the sunny side of the street weather. Thought I’d share a snapshot of today’s wandering around nearby Fortitude Valley. Kris Social media whore us:

Photodump: Golden city

It seems like some kind of nature conspiracy has been happening of late. On my regular bushwalk the trees have been bursting with golden petals, rainforest seed pods have been turning outrageous shades of happy and the colour orange has been yelling at me for attention. I love it. Celebrating the end of my first […]

Spring reflection

While another study semester comes close to completion I can’t help but look forward to a lengthy break and think about the possibility of adventure. I had hoped and was accepted in to a volunteering position in central India but the additional costs to work there for two months are still unfortunately out of my […]

Poking around our Brissie backyard

While my folks have been staying with us in Brisbane I’ve had the perfect excuse to revisit some of my favourite places. It’s been two years since their last pop in and I recognise more than ever the family traits I hope to inherit – most of all my parents shared curiosity for life and a willingness to […]

Photo dump: Up close and vibrant

Another sunshine filled day roaming Brisbane’s many beauties. Today we pulled out the macro lens and dove into Roma Street Parkland. The mixture of ‘Nanna flower’ meets colour explosion brings a humbling energy. Jasmine’s aroma scenting the path, our delighted noses leading the way. A flower within a flower, a puddle in a petal, an insect’s […]
