a lot of people dont know that i lived in Australia back when i was in college. lovely manly beach.
and it was because of that, that i made friends from all over the world. including great girls from sweden.
and it was because of that, that i went to sweden 3 years ago to visit them. my first camera, in tow.
and it was because of that, that i began shooting. that i returned to the US, a photographer in heart.
so a lot of love is in my heart for Australia. i feel like so much in my life happened because i went there. amazing.
“have you been to melbourne?” “oh you gotta get there!” – I’ve been told many times. i always heard the best things about this city, i knew i had to get there.
so after my darling levi & esther’s wedding in Adelaide, i knew i had to get over to Melbourne. or, Mel-bun as the aussies say.
let me tell you, i adore. ADORE. this city. on the water, the architecture is amazing. design, beautiful. everything is centered around the river running through the city. shopping galore. and the ‘youngest’ feeling city i’ve probably ever been to. so many young people. i dont think i saw anyone over 35 my whole time there.
i only have good things to say about this city. apparently it is the best place for coffee as well, but nothing compares to seattle, so aussies really dont know.
melbourne, i will return. this was a wonderful introduction.
this kid was amazing.
first self portrait.
went on a photo walk with Daniel Bilsborough. so awesome to have community around the world.
until next time, my dear darling.
