Our final stop before heading home! 5 days to defrost in a place where many call “paradise”. We were based in Hale’iwa, a town best known as the surfing capital of the world, on the North Shore of Oahu. It’s a very small town, but its location is great to explore all the famous surf beaches.
Overrated. That’s what comes to mind when I think about San Francisco.
After a busy week in New York, we were very much looking forward to some peace and quiet in Alaska. Our main reason to go there was to see the Aurora Borealis – as you all know by now, I am crazy about it and Fairbanks is one of the best spots on Earth to see the Lights dancing in the sky.
New York, the city that never sleeps – probably because it can’t!!! When it’s not an ambulance, it’s the firefighters, or the road works, or the car horns. Dozens of car horns. Or it’s all of that, all together.
Our holidays are over. 4 weeks, 6 cities, 11 flights and almost 43,000 km later, we’re back home and full of stories to tell. So let’s get started. The first stop in our trip was Tasmania, where Bruno and I were invited to photograph a wedding.
The Brisbane Zombie Walk 2015 took place at Roma Street Parkland on the 1st November. It marked their 10th anniversary – and since 2009 they are affiliated with The Brain Foundation of Australia to raise awareness and funds to the institution.
On the 07th November Bruno and I will embark on what we hope will be another epic trip. It’s been a while since we haven’t had proper holidays (20 months to be more precise), so we are really looking forward to it.
A few weeks ago I registered to attend a Canon Collective event taking place during the RSPCA Big Adopt Out 2015, in Brisbane. Several organizations gathered at one place in the hope to find homes to dogs living at their shelters, and Canon set a photo booth to take pictures of the dogs with their new families (or not).
Lately, I’ve been feeling uninspired and even doubting my ability as a photographer, so I decided to create weekly assignments in order to force me to get out, shoot and put my creativity and ability to the test. Bruno decided to join me, and here is how it works:
On the 17th May 2015 Bruno and I took part on the RSPCA Million Paws Walk at South Bank, Brisbane. With the help of friends and colleagues, we fundraised $800 for RSPCA Queensland so they can keep fighting animal cruelty. It was a great event, and photographing the dogs was really fun!
