Photography: Logan White.

Hi Lovelies,

Recently, I was lucky enough to come across the work of Logan White. And all I can say is that I am absolutely fascinated by it...!
I will let her photographs speak for themselves...










...

I did some research about her work and found an interesting interview. And also a post about her on BEN TROVATO that sums up the essence of her work very well: 

"Being inspired by everything from mystical nuances, the female psyche, and the southern gothic, to crumbling wealth, sexuality and death, Macon (GA) based Logan White creates fantastic photography that can’t be put into just one category. Her work ranges from lifestyle and fashion, to more artistic photography."

You can see & read more about Logan White on her website

Music box: Evenings.

Hello Lovelies!

Here's a laid-back tune for a sunday afternoon.
I've had a rather busy week. There are so many things I have to organize and get done to kick-off my new life here. So, little by little I'm ticking off the list. Also, I've been out and about job hunting and have a couple of very cool things lined up. With a bit of luck one of them will work out! (Keeping my fingers crossed..!)
But apart from all the hustle & bustle I've also begun to feel more "at home" here in Sydney. My new life has been good (this positive equation does not include the weather!).
Living with my sister has been the best part of it so far and we've been working on some great ideas. I'll fill you in when the time's right..!

So back to the music: I love the video to this song: the spirit, the colours, the people...
I hope you enjoy it as well!

Feathers, bones & minerals part II.

Hello Lovelies & hello new week! 
I hope you're happy & well. If you are struggling to get motivated in view of the new or perhaps old tasks you know the week will be throwing at you, don't despair! I might have something to cheer you up! 
But first things first, here's the second part of my trip to the museum! 
















...




And now back to that life-saving promise: Have a little look at this and see if it brightens your mood...
It worked for me! Let me say that I'm ticking off my list... you'll see what I mean!


Hurray, life is beautiful!

Music box: Rainbow Chan.

Hi Lovelies,

It's sunday and time for more music! Today I would like to share the tunes of a delightful Sydney-Girl with you. I discovered her via the lovely Caitlin Shearer.
She's known as Rainbow Chan and if you ask me the name is perfect. Her Music reminds me of rainbows, cotton candy and everything that's sweet, colourful & happy! The fact that most of her songs are created with a loop station, her guitar and a hundred little toys makes them a joy to watch & listen to.

You can find out more about Rainbow Chan on her blog & listen to/watch more tunes on her myspace!

Feathers, bones & minerals part I.

Hellohello, 

Ok, so I skipped this week's "colour palette" - post. Let me just say:  It didn't quite work out this week...
But Instead I have a series of photographs I took yesterday.
I spontaneously decided to visit the Australian Museum of Natural History. By the time I arrived there was only one hour left before closing-time. That meant the museum was pretty much deserted. I saw four or five other people during my entire tour through cabinets of natural mineral stones, birds, (real) bugs & remnants of dinos. 
The last time I visited a natural history museum I was a young teenager. I don't know why I never visited the one in Zurich more often. I really enjoyed the timeless education of it a lot. And I do love animals and their extraordinary beauty & mystique...













...



A quick blog-update to finish:
You might have noticed some layout changes. I'm currently remodeling home.town.treasure's look & adding a couple of new features.
I've been following other blogger's tumblr feeds regularly and have been enjoying the diversity of it immensely. Until now, I thought I didn't know enough about it and also found no reason to be running two blogs simultaneously. But, hey, it's never to late to wisen up: Today I signed up! I've decided to use my tumblr. for inbetween photographs, moments, snippets of inspiration and things that make me happy. By "inbetween" I mean all those bits & pieces that would not necessarily be granted the luxury of a regular blog post. Or those that hover and glow in our great sphere of little and personal things but don't fit the mold of a specific blog post. 
Well, I'll see how it goes...


You can have a look at it here
If you have a tumblr I'd love you to leave the link in the comments!

The ocean walk.


I heard it,
the promise of the sea,
to make the heart soar
I heard it,
whilst the constant waves 
caused winds to collide

I put this little clip together after a very long & beautiful walk to three of Sydney's beaches this weekend. 
Wearing my 70ties inspired jumpsuit I felt like indulging that spirit. I like how this footage could have been shot by my mum 35 years back on a summer vacation... 
But most of all I enjoyed sitting on the rocks, sunbathing my (pale) legs in the warm autumn sunshine and listening to the waves & seagulls. In my mind I'm conjuring up more ideas for short clips. This one was put together by lots of spontaneously captured bits & pieces so perhaps somthing more conceptual next time!

La vie en rose.

It's MONDAY everybody (just an innocent reminder...)!
Time for some real-time action! I need to get my life sorted out pronto. My "holiday" is over and real life calls me back to earth. I can't wait...

Here are some pink blossoms that will hopefully make the beginning of a new week a tiny bit sweeter.  For me you can't go wrong with flowers. They are magic. Their spell is mighty: La vie en rose, indeed! 



...

All images were taken with the Zenit. I've finally stocked up on 120 film. So, my Rolleiflex will be seeing more action again.
Oh, and I have committed another "splurge-crime": A Canon A-1. Eeek! 
Seriously,  I need a job now...! 

Have a great day!

The colour palette of my week #2.




Down the road from our flat there's a perfectly lovely park. I discovered it on one of my walks through the neighborhood. It has a small playground, a couple of benches, some very majestic trees and a magnificent ocean view that makes me want to sit and dwell on light & breezy thoughts! Yes, I believe I have discovered my very own hot-spot for balmy (summer) evening picnics! Mhmm...


Another glorious view is the one from our very own home, my bedroom and our work atelier actually! It overlooks the larger of the two local parks which means it's all very green & calm. I captured a little bit of it with my Zenit! How lucky are we? Waking up to the sounds of birds & rustling trees (well ok,  there might be the odd howling of sirens & the distant rumble of cars but you get the general idea, I'm sure!).



Let me introduce you to my skin-care salvation: GROWN.
Since I have been using these all natural & organic products my skin has been ..."under control"! (Exception: when my overall stress levels reach awful heights and just for kicks my skin decides to get in on the action switches to general melt down mode...! Arrgh!)
Anyhow, I worship these products: they smell like a walk through a royal botanical garden, they feel amazingly soothing on my skin and heal any irritations. Bonus: as they are a product of Australia I now can get them at any larger department store or chemist. Hallelujah!
Oh, and don't they just look so pretty?


I have never owned a Bonsai. Rumor has it they are a tad high-maintenance! So, I've always been too afraid of the challenge of caring for one. Previous, far less ominous undertakings didn't exactly boost my green thumb's confidence levels. My pot plants have been known to mysteriously die on me after a mere two or three weeks. It must be something in the water...surely! However, having said all that, these pretty little examples at a Sydney market tempted me to give my floral flair another chance... no day like today, right?


This leather sensation is a family heirloom. It was made by our great-grandfather for our dear Nanna. I simply can't get over the stunning craftsmanship in the leather work. Are those genes locked up in my DNA somewhere? I sure hope so! 


Green green grass, how I love thee! So green, I want to roll in it, sleep in it or even LIVE in it! But for now I'll just sit in it.




Speaking of lovely green goods, here's one of my latest (wardrobe) treasures: a pair of high-waisted plaid shorts from the lovely etsy shop  closetcaseVintage.
May they lead the way to all things green! Take me to the grass, the hills and far beyond...
Green things are good things, methinks.
