Recent

I have a folder on my desktop titled 'recent' where I throw in photos that don't belong anywhere else.  Over time those photos become less and less recent until it comes to a point (today!) where I decide to just compile them all into one extremely random blog post! So that's what I have for you today!

A little bat that Ben rescued, I never really thought that bats could fall into the cute category but this guy was adorable!

And the most amazing house boat cat!

I was out shooting a wedding on a dock in Brisbane and there was a cat on one of the boats!! I quickly turned my camera to take a few sneaky shots before turning it back on the bride and groom :P

 I'm sure I've mentioned before but green tree frogs are in my top 5 favourite animal category!!

 The day before Ben left, he wanted to go for one last skate and I was feeling very attached to him so I went along for the ride and got to hang out with all the cool kids for a second :P

In actual recent news, our moving house adventures are back on, so in the next few months I'll be blogging from a new location - which is scary and fun all in one!

GOMA - Patricia Piccinini

Before Ben went away for work we checked out the Patricia Piccinini exhibition at GOMA, a retrospective collection, titled Curious Affection. It definitely clashed with my specific art tastes but deep down I could appreciate the skill and thought that went into the collection.  This blog post is mostly of her work but the rest of the gallery was still full of lots of other goodies so I took some shots of my favourites :) I think it will be fairly obvious to spot which sculptural pieces (made of silicone, fiberglass and hair) are from Patricia.  You might also pick up on some themes in her practice including genetic engineering, nature & technology and nurturing (to name a few!).
