Melbourne - iphone

Because I was shooting a wedding, I made sure to leave my digital camera gear at home when I went out exploring (just for extra peace of mind) which meant lots of film photos (still to come!) and that my phone got a good work out. A fun thing I'll always remember about this trip was being in the plane, moments before take off, awaiting some pretty big news. The girl in front of me had her ear pressed against her phone listening to the announcement on her screen before the air hostess came upon the loud speaker to tell us that the marriage equality vote had passed in Australia - lots of cheering! In the vote, Melbourne had the highest support for marriage equality and thus on my walks I saw lots and lots of stickers and placards, banners and posters scattered in shop windows and on people yards - it was amazing! 

I also grew my rose obsession on this trip and nearly died seeing all the lovely front gardens, where it seemed, every third house grew roses *gasp*

Someone please sponsor me to do a 'roses of Melbourne' coffee book :p


  1. I love the idea of leaving the digital camera home to use a film camera or the phone. I always think I'll regret it and lug my big camera with me when I can just as well be creative without it. And congratulations Australia! When I heard the news I was immensely happy :)

    1. Definitely can relate, my big camera is usually tethered to me like a safety line :P It's nice to know you can be okay without it and your back probably thanks you too! It's also nice to be proud of your Country!
