So I’ve really been absent from this blog for a very long time now but all with good reason! You all know by now that I’ve been really indecisive about what it is I wanted to do with Little Sundays.
Well, by chance and in recent months, I’ve actually been working and shooting for a fantastic new publication in Sydney known as Tete-A-Tete And Plate and have loved every single moment of it. It’s made me realised that if I love it, then I should do something more with it and not just be half committed to being a blogger. In all honesty, I was never really good at blogging anyway – this was always a space that helped me channel my creativity into the right direction. Though it’s sad to say goodbye, better things are ahead for Little Sundays and I’ve decided to close this WordPress blog.
You can still follow my blog and visit me on my new and improved website – Little Sundays Studio (www.littlesundaysstudio.com). It has my portfolio as well as occasional blog posts about things. Of course, I’m still kicking on with Instagram so you can see little snippets of my home there.
Thank you to all of you who have committed yourselves to reading and believing in Little Sundays – Little Sundays is growing up, flying out and I hope you will come and visit me in my next adventure. Wishing you goodbye and good luck!
I’m going to admit it. I really don’t like my photography course. Like, I’m on the verge of hating it. Every time that I go to read my course notes or try to work on an assignment, I feel like I hit a creative roadblock. The content is dry and at times, really not relevant and the references just don’t inspire me. My thinking at the beginning of the year was that it would help me become a better photographer but at the moment, I’m questioning that all together.
It’s strange because I was always one of those kids that thrived in a school environment – I liked doing homework and getting good grades. But with this, it’s something completely different. I’ve got another four months left and six modules to go – I’m not sure how I’ll get through it but the geek inside me says to keep going so I will.
So what does one do when they’re creatively stuck? Well, in my case, they buy a new camera and challenge their own ways of shooting. One of my biggest weaknesses when it comes to photography is taking it outside – the people on the streets, the strange looks and accidental bumps as well as other uncontrollable variables like weather and traffic all scare me like crazy. But I’ve set myself the challenge to get better at it before I go to London and Paris later this year.
I have to admit, my Oly EM10 has made it all the bit easier to take on this challenge. His discrete looks don’t scare the masses plus he surprisingly handles a few situations better than our SLR. Here’s a few snaps from our South Melbourne day-cation over the past weekend:
Okay, so it’s been another couple of months since my last post and I’m still contemplating how much longer I should keep my blog going. I haven’t quite reached a decision yet so in the meanwhile, I’ll keep this running until I figure out what to do (which is kind of a best of both worlds answer at the moment)!
Anyway, I finally got around to putting some shelves in our hallway over the week. Our little house though small, is blessed with an extremely wide hallway – our hallway is over two metres wide which I love! One of the first things we thought when we bought our home was that the hallway needed some kind of storage so that it was functional but without compromising our space. Over time, we’ve added cabinets but it’s the shelves that really have completed this space.
There’s still much to do in our home – it really is a never ending process but at least that’s another that’s off the list!
