Life through the Shutter

The K & S Train
The K & S Train

It is amazing what life brings along - it is fantastic, incredible, so colourful and yet with really dark tones thrown in. I think I am borderline bipolar as I think most creatives tend to me - I experience amazing highs and overwhleming lows but I feel rich and alive. At the moment I am sitting in one of my favourite cafes enjoying sun and the excitement of Nelson as we are the stage for the Rugby World Cup tonight and the town is a buzz.


Photography is going so well. I have lots on and more coming up and am continuing to grow and improve. I feel like I have made a dangerous move away from what has been comfortable and moved towards my passion and dream. It is at times both terrfying and exhilerating.


It is a wonderful priviledge to take photos of people and their children. For a moment you share an intimacy through the lens which is altogther embracing. There is trust and open-ness that I find hard to establish without a camera in my hands and I love it. My thanks goes out all who have allowed me to play this part in their lives to date for your trust and faith.

    Currently it appears like Movable Type is the top blogging platform available right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

    I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy I came across this during my hunt for something regarding this.
