The Documented

I started ANOTHER blog. Craziness. Why on earth would I do that when I don't even update my current one?

It won't replace this poor neglected space. It is a separate project. Photography. Rather seriously titled The Documented. I know 99% of you are awesome photographers, so I was going to keep this private. I'm just learning.

My younger sister, Celeste, is studying fine art photography at uni and she is an absolutely brilliant photographer. She is one of those people who is not only passionate about images and creating them, but she is meticulous when it comes to the technical side of cameras. She reads the manuals kind of passionate. She loves it all.

So she's passing snippets of her knowledge onto me.

I started the blog to help me practice taking photos on manual settings daily. Today is day thirteen of the project. Not sure how long the project will last, but so far it is going strong.

If you'd like to see a snippets of my perfectly imperfect days, including far too many photos of flowers and my children, then feel free to peruse.

Hello.

I disappeared from here for awhile. Partly because I felt like it. Partly because my computer died. And partly just because.
 
I did however spend a bit of time thinking about blogs. What I like about them.

Some, I like their humour. Others their honesty. And others still, their sheer beauty. Mine isn't humorous. My honesty will only ever be partial - cause really, my ability to describe chaos is limited, and I still live in complete chaos. And sheer beauty ... well let me clean up my chaos first!

Then after all those things there is a crazy little community on here, that is bigger than I realised. And so far, you have all been lovely. With that community, I've discovered blogs filled with all different types of amazing creativity - words, pictures, cooking, music, knitting, painting, sewing, simple creativity in living day-to-day life. Inspiring. I love that.

So, from now on, I will try and use this space to feed my creativity. Sure, I'm certain some months I'll only post photos of my kidlets, but I want to also record any projects, ideas, inspirations. Glimmery, shimmery wonderful things.

But before the creativity starts, here are some recent catch up pics of my chaos.


My three, facetiming with Meme. Clean washing waiting to be sorted in the afternoon winter light. Photographing the accumulated mess rather than cleaning it.
