The ones that got away

There just isn’t enough time these days. (I feel like I always say that, but it’s never not true.) I’ve stepped away from blogging for a bit, not from posting photographs, but from writing. Mostly because I have needed to focus on writing my thesis and planning the remaining shoots, and also because I have been busy trying to get my homemade micro brand of kids stuff, Little Horrors, off the ground. It is all just taking a very long time to set up a shop, sew stock and photograph it when juggling with a full-time toddler and a terrible summer on top of my Masters.

But alongside all of those reasons there were some trolls (not the large, hairy kind) that made things less pleasurable and just made me tired of the whole thing for a while. But I’ll get back into it.

Anyways, as I mentioned in my previous 52 post I had a really hard time choosing between photos last week. I figured I’d show you the ones that got away, plus some from the weeks before.


Week 4: At the Children’s gallery at Melbourne Museum, full of wonder.

Week 4: Taking a pause from playing guitar.


Week 4: The days are too hot for us to go outside, but once the sun goes down we come out to run around and drench ourselves. 



Week 4: happiness is a good hosing after too many hot days. _DSC3271_web

Week 6: Looking at reflections


Week 6: Eating a snack and thinking hard about something.

I’ve come to the conclusion that it is not possible to have too many photos of your children. Particularly the good ones.

Happy Friday! xx

  1. Oh he is just so beautiful 🙂 My favorite is the one in diapers, with the flowers in the back 🙂 What is your thesis about? xoxo Fanni

    • Thank you! 🙂
      I’m writing about cultural displacement and relocation, specifically how a theme in contemporary art is taking traditional things and inserting them into new contexts. I take norwegian myths and folktales and restage them, and let them transform in an Australian landscape to see how this changes them. My thesis looks further into theories about this. Heaps of fun!
