Painted wall at PN

The wonderful guest house, Phranakorn Nornlen in Bangkok.  This place has a magical authenticity with gorgeous whimsical paintings on almost every wall. One wall of the dining area has a museum along one side, multiple collections of old interesting things ... nice as they're a part of history we don't get to see often.  Vintage cameras & clothing.  Old TV's. Old cafe setup & even old washing powder packaging!  This place has many lovely nooks and crannies to explore especially because the gardens are also lush and well cared for. What a nice way to relax.

Oil painted self in photoshop

Yup that's a wig I bought at the Chinese markets in Bangkok.  It's such fun to have a totally different hair style :)

Time for something new ... in 18 months ...

News I lose my job

What do we want? Justice for animals. When do we want it? Now.
A great march on parliament today - thanks HUHA.
We were addressed by The Greens, Act and Labour. National didn’t bother to turn up (although it was suggested the dogs may be unleashed!). Why do National refuse to listen to the voice of the people? It’s become a typical Shon-Key response!
Protest against animal testing - article on Stuff

UPDATE: great news the government actually listened to the people (like they're supposed to do right?) and banned the use of animals for testing party pills. This is great but I question why it was ever 'allowed' in the first place!

Artificial lighting

Photofriday's topic artificial light had me drag this one up from the archives. I do love how it conjures up memories of enjoying the large expanse this installation enveloped. It really was something to behold. So glad to have photos that bring those memories to front of mind again.

Natural light

A small collection of natural light photographs
Swirls in the sand

Whisps of sweet delightful light


I love how the water plays havoc with the suns light

Crystals make stars as the sun dips, golding the clouds.

This is the life! Evening light over Pauatahanui inlet

Double delight!

Wild skies

I'm booked in for a photoshoot (YAY!) with the lovely & talented Mandi Lyn and so have been collecting images that catch my eye and creating a pinterest page (as per her preparation instructions) in an attempt to illustrate the kind of photo I'd like created.  

I found this site urban-fashion-photography and rather love the photos there. And rather like this one too glamour.  It's actually much more difficult than I expected (I should know better being a slave to the lens myself!).  

I'd like the true Jane to come out ... but who is she? ... what is she really into these days? ... at the tender age of 42 ... oh me oh my doesn't the time fly!

So, best I make some notes ...
I love simple things
A natural look
Bokeh in the background
Light and dark
Fun and fantasy
Real and serene
Surreal and stark

How to fit it all into 6 photographs?
I am sure we will find out soon!
