Photography: Ryan Mcginley.

Hello Lovelies, 

Today I stumbled upon the fantastic photographs of Ryan Mcginley via the lovely blog JULIA

It seems he focuses mainly on nude photography. His collection moonmilk is a beautiful series of photographs that are enhanced by intense & vibrant tones that blend the nude models into the vast and impressive back drop of huge caves that seem to emanate a mysterious aura & work well as an interesting geometrical contrast to the soft human figure.

Wishing you all a smooth start into the new week!

Rollei Retro part II.



Hi Lovelies, 

Oh dear! It's been to long since my last post! Life has been super busy lately with work and projects  keeping me occupied. 
I'll have some exciting news to share with you all in the very near future but for now I'll share the second part of photographs from my last roll of Rollei Retro b&w film...

On a more personal note: The expression "To Wanda!", as shown in the first photograph, has various meanings to my sister & me. However, it that it all started with  THIS movie and THIS scene, a film that I would recommend whole-heartedly to everyone who enjoys a good story with strong and passionate characters,  gorgeous cinematography & a healthy serve of belly laughs to go with it! And to put the icing on the cake: Kathy Bates is spectacular!
The expression has evolved since then and it takes it's physical form on top of our kitchen cabinets  reminding us every day of the following simple but vital fact: When there's nothing left to say. there's always "To Wanda!", the avenger, the queen of glamazons and amazons alike and"Hurray!" to all the strong & courageous women of the world!

Rollei Retro part I.

Hi Lovelies,

I find I go in phases when it comes to choosing the film I want to shoot with. Lately I've been using mostly AGFA vista colour film. A while back I purchased a couple of rolls of Rollei Retro 400 & Fuji Neopan black & white film, which has been laying around ever since, looking somewhat forlorn sitting on the (fridge) shelf...but I seem to have to be in the right "mood" to shoot back & white film as I tend to want to choose my subjects more carefully to get an interesting shot. Perhaps I feel it's a more "precious" medium to shoot with and shouldn't be "wasted". So, it's just a bit more convenient to have a roll of colour film loaded in my camera while I'm out & about, on my way to work or running errands for when I want to whip out my camera to capture something spontaneously. And at the end of the day colour film & the processing of it is quite a bit cheaper too...who are we kidding here...?!




But I think I'm finally in the right kind of "head space" to focus a bit more on b&w. Having said that, this shift in energy could possibly also just be put down to the simple fact that it's winter here in Sydney and everything is mostly damp and dull... grayscale anyone? However, who'd have thought that perpetual drizzle could trigger genuine inspiration...? Well, here goes! Color who? Talk to me when everything is back in blossom, vibrant & alive until then, sing me a melancholy blues in b(&w) flat...! 

Below are some results from a little trip to the BIG city.

I have a couple more photographs from this first roll to share with you. So till then...
