Snapshot : Almost Strawberry Season

This is a very exciting time indeed. Some time during May, Germany-wide, these little huts pop up all over the city. And yes - they're supposed to look like strawberries, because they mark the beginning of Strawberry Season! The sign on the front means they will be opening in just a few days time. I… Continue reading Snapshot : Almost Strawberry Season

Look Back : April 2015

Having turned over the calendar yesterday, I realised another month has gone. Another month closer to those long, long Summer days, when the sun rises around 5am and doesn't set before 11pm. Pretty crazy how the days turn into weeks and then with a snap of your fingers, another month has passed, isn't it? April saw… Continue reading Look Back : April 2015

Mini break : Oxford

I had never been to Oxford before - and the above photo that I took, not long after we arrived is pretty much what I expected to see in Oxford. From the little I knew - it is a University town. It is old and historic and the two things I really wanted to do… Continue reading Mini break : Oxford

Snapshot : My ride home

Having my studio so close to home, often means I take the 'long way' on days like today - the ride home is too… Continue reading Snapshot : My ride home

Snapshot : Spring is here!

Isn't Hamburg heavenly in the Spring time! I couldn't let these photos sit on my computer one more day, without sharing the beauty that is just meters from my front door right now.

Snapshot : Blossoms on my way home…

Not a lot needs to be said for todays photos - only that this was my walk home and I just had to share them with you. Spring and Autumn are my favourite seasons - it's always hard to decide which one I love more. But I know there are many 100's of photos I… Continue reading Snapshot : Blossoms on my way home…

Travel : Happy New Year

Coming into this New Year, I am reminded how lucky I am to be able to call two amazing cities home. On average, I spend 10 months a year in Hamburg, Germany and 2 months a year mainly in Melbourne, Australia - during Summer. Hamburgers ( mostly Germans in general) dream about going to Australia -… Continue reading Travel : Happy New Year
