Playing with Photos...

I feel like I've not done an outfit post for a long while...

This dress was one of those poor dresses that sat in my wardrobe when I first got it because it had some major alterations that needed doing. But ever since I got around to doing them, it has been in constant roation - at the moment I love pairing it with with the belt I'm wearing, black tights and a dark grey cardigan. I love the contrast of the sweet springy floral print of the dress with the dark wintery black of the other items - it fits perfectly with the wintery cold mornings. On Saturday when I wore it for these photos, it was too warm for the tights and cardigan and so they were happily left at home...

A new lens arrived on my doorstep on Monday and it takes the most beautiful photos. I put it through it's paces this weekend, first on Saturday at Rookwood Cemetary, one of the largest cemetary's in the Southern Hemisphere and again on Sunday at the White Bay Power Station. It's derelict and normally closed to the public, but they opened it up again this weekend after it was so popular when they opened it to the public a few months ago.

Below are just a few of my favourite photos from the cemetary and I'll show you some from the power station soon...

  8. I really love your pics! There is a lovely simplicity to them that is kind of comforting in a way. Nicely done. :)
