So, here we are in 2015. I apologise for being a little quiet lately. It feels like there has been no real down time since November thanks to a heap of social gatherings and outings (all of which I am very grateful for).
I decided that I won’t write a long and rambling post of all the ups and downs of 2014. I have documented my year fairly well both here and on Instagram. In all, it was a pretty good year, though I was struck down with illness for a huge chunk of it. Fighting through that though, I had a lot of outings and took a heap of photos and was fairly cheerful. I’m hoping that 2015 continues in a positive way with new and exciting adventures and rewarding friendships.
For most of the year I have been marking the everyday with pictures on my Instagram account. I have every intention of sharing some of those favourites here, but for now I would like to share some of my favourite ‘proper’ photos from 2014. These are photos taken with my DLSR and some are from the My place in time project.
Throughout 2014 I have also added a fair amount of new wildflower and landscape photography to my Redbubble folio. These images are available to purchase on a wide range of products.
I hope you enjoy the pictures! If you click the photo it should take you to the relevant post.

Inspired by the photographs of New York MOMA exhibition that came to town in 2013, I started taking my photographs with really high apertures, to get as much detail as possible.
Skateboarders down at The Woolstores in Fremantle.
Some of these photos were taken as part of the My place in time project. I started this photo documentary project in May 2013, as a way to encourage myself and other people around the world to take an interest in recording the everyday scenes of their local area, and to print the photos. Whilst I only set 100 prompts I have taken hundreds of photos of Perth’s suburbs during the past 18 months. It’s become so very important of me to record as much as possible, especially given how quickly Perth changes. Many of the buildings I have photographed in the past year have since been demolished or closed to the public.
You can see the progress of the project here.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,200 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.
