laurenepbath Spring is a time for flowers, at least that's how I know it. It's really funny the way that you recognize seasons when you get into photography. I love winter for the light, summer for the long days, autumn for the fall colors and spring for the flowers.

laurenepbath I just realized that I haven't really posted the quintessential "Eiffel Tower" shot from my holiday in France. So here she is. Shot at dusk with a wide angle lens to fit her all in! @FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_France 4h

laurenepbath Who remembers when I posted a shot of all these piles of fresh fruit in Spain and said it was a choice between posting that and posting piles of sweets? Well a whole bunch of you said "show me the sweets!!" Haha, here they are. Enjoy. @FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_Spain 1d

laurenepbath Soooo I'm out photographing lavender fields and sunflowers in Provence France, as you do, and this guy comes into frame wearing a bright red T-shirt. Am I a stalker for shooting him? Haha. Wouldn't it be funny if someone on Instagram recognized this guy? @FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_France 1d

laurenepbath I've been tagged to reveal 20 facts about myself by @deliciousbysara , I haven't done something like this in ages! Here goes -
1) I'm in this months Australian "Marie Claire" magazine, an absolute honor!
2) I originally started Instagram because I read it was fun.
3) I used my iPhone 4 to take photos for the first 3 months I was on Instagram.
4) I got into photography through Instagram!
5) My first camera was a Nikon D7000.
6) My best mate is @garry_norris - I got him into Instagram and now he has one of the biggest accounts in the country.
7) Garry and I met because he was my boss at a restaurant. We're both ex-chefs.
8) In January last year I quit my job to be a full time "Instagrammer".
9) At the time I didn't really know what that meant. I was the first in Australia and one of the first in the world.
10) I get paid to travel but it's much more than that. I'm a social media constant, educator, project manager and destination marketer.

laurenepbath Here it is, the mystery object! I told you to be specific - it's actually the Eiffel Tower and her reflection in the fountains still waters. The winner is - @nnaoms_ whose most correct answer was "the Eiffel Tower reflected in the frontal lake ". @FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_France 3d

laurenepbath I've been dying to share this photo for ages! And it's totally a bokeh shot! (For those that don't know "bokeh" is out of focus light and usually renders as circles.) I want to know if anyone can guess what this is? I'm going to give a shout out to the person who has the best guess, be specific! I'll post the focused shot next. From my @FlightCentreAu trip to Paris, France #FlightCentre_France 3d

laurenepbath My last Tassie shot to post, until next time @tasmania , it'll have to be latergrams. ;) This is the view looking back up to the entrance of Newdegage Cave. (Also known as Hastings) Who else in insta-land loves caves? I'm obsessed with them right now. @tasmania #discovertasmania 5d

laurenepbath Good morning! I've only got a few more Tassie shots to share and this one is from out near Hastings Cave on the "platypus walk". (We didn't see any platypus unfortunately) Our rag tag bunch of misfits can always find something to shoot though. If you're worried about not getting your Tasmania fix from me just follow @tasmania - there's loads of talent down there. #discovertasmania 5d

  •   ccons3 No platypus swinging from the trees? That's terrible. Hopefully next time. Where's the next stop on the adventure? . 4d

laurenepbath You've got to love a tranquil coastal sunrise. Just soft light and a discreet reflection with a warm glow on the shore. I found Tasmania's south much less wild than I anticipated but that's what I love about Tassie - every corner is completely different and wonderful. @tasmania #discovertasmania 5d

laurenepbath How's this for a view of the beach? Looking down from the bottom of the "neck" on Bruny Island you're greeted with a winding staircase and ocean views. There's also a penguin rookery down the bottom but no penguins around when I visited. @tasmania #discovertasmania 6d

laurenepbath This is not my shot - it's a shot OF me! Taken my one of my very very favorite instagrammer's of all time and regular travel companion @jewelszee . If you're not following Jewels do yourself a favor and head over. Her colorful images and hilarious captions have loads of people hooked! Taken during sunset in @tasmania looking back towards Hobart. #discovertasmania 6d

laurenepbath Good morning! I'm going to post this shot from my Pennicott Journey's Tasman cruise even though @jewelszee got an almost identical shot. The light, the cliffs, the little fishing boat ... This really shows the landscape of South Tasmania. @tasmania #discovertasmania 6d

laurenepbath This is me right now! Lol. It's been a big day again and I'm hitting the hay. Like this little fur seal. I wish I could have him as my teddy bear, sooo cute! @tasmania #discovertasmania 6d

laurenepbath OMG! It's a little baby birdie staring straight down the barrel of my lens on Bruny Island. I loves him! @tasmania #discovertasmania 7d
