Trespassing on Bradley Barge

'I'm going even if you don't want to...'

I am the kind of girl who will NEVER be left behind and if you trespass...well...I am happy to too. So that's how Luke and I ended up getting up close and personal with the Barge named Bradley after squeezing past the fence. I am such a goody-goody that every car that passed and every voice I heard made me look up, expecting to get turfed out.

I loved every minute of it - the sunlight was ah-mazing and made the colours (well rust) so vibrant. I had an urge to go down to Port Adelaide earlier in the morning to capture some industrial black and whites but it rained fairly steadily. In the arvo after needing to un-coup and get fresh air we decided to head down to the Port even if we didn't get our cameras out.

When we came across the barge and after I saw the colours my camera was producing I got giddy with excitment. I'm really happy and proud with the pics I ended up with so prepare yourself - this is going to be a loooonnnggg post...enjoy.

We had a quick coffee at Cafe Foreyou on Lipson to perk us up for the upcoming session and they had crayons! So fun :)

Coffee shop fun...yes I felt like a 12yr old writing this!

I have a fascination with architecture and period this doorknob

Classic! Pair of pidgeons!!

Love the colours from the digger thing that was on the barge...

Luke was worried I would catch tetanus from this rusty screw

There was also a caravan on the barge...umm weird!

How gorgeous was the sunset?!

A big lesson I have learned this week is that life is precious.

Enjoy the moment, the day, your life. The world will keep turning so don't dwell on the small things. Those dishes will still be there to be washed tomorrow so take the time to smell the roses...

Take the time to smile at a stranger becuase you don't know what they are going through.

I'm taking my own advice starting tonight by enjoying an amazing dinner made by Luke (chicken and asparagus with a white wine sauce - Yum) and then curling up to watch some TV after an emotional and tiring week.

Have a great weekend everyone. I will be busy photo editing baby Amelias 3 month session and preparing some marketing material....and also smelling the roses...

I am loving quirky furniture, accessories and patterns lately. I love lace, pearls, florals, vintage furniture (I have my eye on a vintage wardrobe at the moment) and...mirrors!

I've been on the lookout for a PERFECT vintage mirror for a long time now and have scoured so many second hand and antique shops in my big search. After so long I had just about given up but then I spied this retro mirror in Ikea of all places! I'm not the hugest fan of Ikea, sure they are cheap but often cheap spells bad quality but I still buy a few nice things from there now and again.

Heres my new mirror (oh...and the jewellery tree is also from Ikea :))

Bianca + Nimshan | Adelaide Engagement Photographer

Luke and I had such a great time photographing Bianca and Nimshan last weekend. Even though it was freezing, they braved the cold for me and got some great shots.

I met Bianca when she moved over to Adelaide from Perth late last year. Nimshan had started working in Adelaide last year and following their engagement, Bianca made the move too. Not only do they look great together, they are fun and super down-to-earth couple.

Thank you again Bianca + Nimshan for letting us 'papparazzi' you both and braving the weather! x
