Photography Inspiration: Hells Angels

I've just started to watch the TV show Sons of Anarchy. So at the moment all things biker
related is what's inspiring me right now. I found these images of Hells Angels via tumblr and and they are quite beautiful. Outlaws they may be, but I think these images capture
a raw humanity.

One of my dreams....

To be a rockstar.....

Runway TV Asia

I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to watch this show. For all the lucky people in the
Philippines, you won't have problems. Hopefully V can supply me with bootleg copies when she
is in town!

Herrera women kicking arse and taking names!

Russh Magazine x Summer Snaps

Summer Snaps by Maria Cruz, originally uploaded by raverria.
I'm so freaking happy right now! I tell you why....

My picture is featured in RUSSH MAGAZINE's FB page, as one of their favourites in their Summer
Snaps album.

I've been banging on about it to my boyfriend, I think he's sick of it...

But I'm so excited because I absolutely love Russh magazine.... I've been collecting their mag since the
start of their inception. My image may not be in their pages, but the fact that it's on their FB page makes me
so happy. I actually made it a goal to be featured by them a few years ago, and it's happened. I'm very
grateful right now.

Their magazine has an effect on my photography, so I guess it's come full circle.

If your wondering the image is taken in La Union Beach, Philippines.

Outfit Inspiration: Trench Coat

I'm really diggin this outfit. Such a simple denim cutoff and t-shirt combo, But the trench coat
definitely takes it to another level.

I think it's a perfect look for Sydney's Winter/ Spring transitional period.

Silver Snuff




I bought this bad boy at Salvation Army for $1, yes you read right $1. I plan to turn
it into a necklace.

Snuff cases are very interesting items. I remember seeing beautiful 17th Century silver lockets/
snuff cases at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. I was always tempted to break the
glass cases they were in, and steal them. Clearly I didn't go ahead with that plan.

I'm so excited about this $1 find, I am the queen of thrift shopping!

Life Lately

Tea seems to be the drink of choice during cloudy and cold days. My mum has lovely tea sets,
so I thought I'd take them out for a spin.
Head down to David Jones, they have amazing floral arrangements on the ground floor for
their Floriography exhibition. Too beautiful it hurts. I visited the Art Gallery of NSW again.
JW Waterhouse's paintings always blow me away, I've been a fan of his work for a long
time. I think I was staring at his Mariamne oil painting for 30 minutes, I was in a trance really.
It's amazing how artist's, Like JW, can get the details so perfect.

Shake on it

I absolutely hate it when I first meet someone, and they give me a dead handshake. That is in my top 5 things
I hate. So if you ever meet me, give me a firm hand shake. 
How good is this illustration (Illustration by Ted Slampyak). I saw it on my new favourite blog called 

So sisters, if you want your man to be more of a gentlemen or to be more manly direct them to that rad blog.

It's weird to think that I've been back in Oz for a year now. I realised that I rarely posted while I was away,
especially of the trips around Europa. I should have been more diligent in writing on this blog. With hindsight
and nostalgia in mind, the next set of posts will be just about that. Also, I really need to get my sh*t together
and get my film developed from my Holga camera. I'm really curious to see what photos I've taken and I
hope my shaky photography hands didn't ruin all the shots, here's hoping.
