Good morning

This is what it feels like on a good morning at home. I probably didn't leave Cronulla that day, or have my phone ring (much), or check my emails too often. It's not to say I laid in bed (or on the sand) all day and drunk too much tea (or wine) and watched movies and laughed til I I didn't do that, but I did wake up slow and some days that is all you need for it to be a good day.

Kinfolk Gathering Sydney

  1. Wabi-sabi (侘寂 ? ) represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete".
Was absolutely over the moon excited to be asked to photograph the second Kinfolk Gathering of 2014, a messy meal. Based on the concept of wabi sabi we entered in to a breezy, warm, light filled, textured, top floor space that had you wanting to take your shoes off from the get go - have a glass of wine, find a cushion, a new friend and really settle that's exactly what everyone did. 
Thank you to the most beautiful hosts for ushering us into this kind of space and pace on a Saturday afternoon. For themes sake I'm sorry to say, it was perfect.
