MARCS A/W 2012


I'm really digging the Marcs Autumn/ Winter 2012 campaign. I love the styling, the photos and the 60s mod look of the collection. My favourites are the 2nd picture; maroon jacket and the tweed coat + shirt and tie. The 5th picture; camel and sky blue coats.

Thoughts

So many changes have happened in the last month that I feel like I can't breathe. Like I'm sinking. I guess you can say I'm quite a happy person, that likes dark things (music and art in particular). I can be quite the ice queen. Something that has been in me since I was a child. My frankness can be mistaken for bitchiness (or maybe I am just a biatch) The funny thing is, the people closest to me see it more than others i.e family and boyf. Maybe because I can get away with it and because they will always be there. In reality, I shouldn't take them for granted. In saying that, I love them, in my tough love sort of way.

I'm sort of lost at the moment and the other night I wrote in my journal to let all my thoughts out, something I haven't done in a year. You know that feeling where you feel like you haven't achieved anything substantial in your life/ past year. Well I'm in that phase or mind frame. I guess that is where the sinking feeling comes from. The last couple of weeks I have't been sleeping properly, my mind is ticking 100km a minute that bed time is at the witching hour of 3am. To fall asleep I normally pray or open the Bible to a random page and read it. And the other night I read the parable of The Sower. It was very appropriate.

The shit thing about being a dreamer is dreaming too much, and not actually doing anything. I need to sow seeds for future opportunities and success. So this will be my goal for the next couple of months. I need to stick to my 2012 resolution of 'Growth'.

Samir 'Sammy Blue Eyes'

Samir

I briefly spoke of Samir in my Morocco post. I took 2 photos of him and I'm actually bummed because the images turned out blurry. A Holga camera work hazard, due to my shaky hands. AND the photo doesn't do his amazing aqua blue eyes any justice.

One of the things I love about traveling is meeting people. Samir is one of them. He was our taxi driver, and then became our tour guide. He did not speak a word of English, and we couldn't speak a word of Arabic or French. But we all managed to communicate with each other, which is the most beautiful part of our relationship with him.

He had the biggest smile, and was a very welcoming and patient man. He was at ease and didn't seem to mind the language barrier. He took us to five towns a few hours from Fez. We had tea with a Berber family, fed monkeys at a nature reserve; which I was absolutely freaking out about, because I thought they would turn on us. We walked through market towns and had lunch in the 'Swiss Alps' of Morocco.

One thing I will never forget is when Samir literally hopped over rock faces at look out point we went to. Tim and my friend Vi were struggling to climb over these rocks. Samir was dressed in a suit and leather dress shoes, dancing over them as if it was like a walk in the park.

Iceland is like landing on a foreign planet; otherworldly, beautiful and serene. Every where you look is a photo opportunity.

Summer Where Did You Go?

Still waiting for summer to arrive, it looks as though we have had an English summer...one that lasts for 1 week, if you're lucky.

Art Inspiration: Pakayla Biehn


As you know I am Holga double exposure fiend. So when I saw the above image, I couldn't get over it, it's just so beautiful. It's from the painted series You Should Care by Pakayla Biehn. So make sure you take a look.

Have a great weekend!!
