poeticwordvomit This one is for you, @quietpoem, my little (kuku) monster.

I know you don't need words, but today, they needed to be shared.

Over the past 18 months, you've come to learn and now instantly notice how my eyes and mind chaotically fill imperfections.

You have inspired me to see my surroundings differently, to a point where I enjoy capturing and am content posting an imperfect image.

You have taught me to accept that all the mistakes I have made and will make won't make me a perfect friend; they are simply moments I need to acknowledge, learn from and all they actually do is reduce the imperfections that you whole-heartedly love and accept anyway.

You want me to be unapologetically myself; comfortable in my imperfect skin, even when the emotional being that I am feels the weight of failure.

You love me not because I am "the perfect friend", but because I am your perfectly imperfect best friend.

You already know I feel incredibly lucky and so grateful to have your presence in my existence, everyday babe. Literally, everyday, and I know the feeling is mutual.

How, a crazy world apart, did we connect this way and become the best friends we could have each hoped for? I don't know. All I know is your words "you're too close to be too far" ring true and part of me is as sure as you are that our souls have always been connected, somehow.

This is just a thank you, for being you and for being (t)here, always.

I love you and the kuku magia friendship we have built more than you know and more than these words or any others can ever define. infiniti + 8, always.

Edited with the app Faded (@madewithfaded) which is now free! It's a user friendly app and I'm liking some of the presets - worth checking out. #madewithfaded

poeticwordvomit I spent my Saturday eating, talking (in various accents) and walking with this sweet petite bubble of joy, Jenna.

Thanks for the lovely day, @vintagedaughter

poeticwordvomit I had the pleasure of meeting fellow architectural lover @surfistatomato on Thursday. It was great to finally meet the talented guy behind one of my favourite architectural feeds.

Thanks for reaching out and hanging out, Andrew!

poeticwordvomit Arrived back in Sydney yesterday with a camera roll full of amazing memories of @tropicalnorthqueensland.

Needless to say, there will be many latergrams popping up over the next couple of weeks! This was taken whilst on a short walk through the lush rainforest on our way to view Tchupala Falls, a segmented waterfall on the Henrietta Creek, located in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Wet Tropics.

Shot with my iPhone 6 and the @optrix macro lens attached with the help of some chewing gum These gorgeous flowers are barely 1cm wide! #exploreTNQ #optrix #anythingforthegram #holdyourbreathandshoot #cropandstop

poeticwordvomit Being able to take my iPhone 5s into the water on this trip was freakin' awesome! This shot was from a few days ago when @nautilusaviation flew us over the mind blowing reef and dropped us off for a lovely picnic and swim on Turtle Beach.

poeticwordvomit What an epic day! Hiked up Mt Kootaloo on Dunk Island, followed by some island hopping, a swim at Bedarra Island, blokart riding on Wongaling Beach and am about to take this delicious green beauty for a ride. Ummm... I don't want to go back home!!! @tropicalnorthqueensland #exploreTNQ 3w

poeticwordvomit Yesterday, the awesome crew at @nautilusaviation took us on a helicopter ride that I'll never forget.

We stopped by Turtle Beach where I got absolutely hammered trying to get some wave shots. Out of the 50+ attempts, I think I was happy with one! @tropicalnorthqueensland #exploreTNQ

poeticwordvomit Off to #WWIM10 soon! Can hardly wait to be part of @queensland's insane number of Instameets today. I'm part of the awesome group heading to Green Island where I hope to get some rad shots during our underwater Instameet... yes, underwater!!! This shot was taken using my iPhone 6, which I've had at home for almost 2 weeks Rest assured I won't be dunking it in the ocean just yet. All underwater shots will be taken with my 5s using the trusty @optrix case which was recommended to me by my sweet friend @pketron - Thanks, Pei! It's awesome.

poeticwordvomit It's been a jam packed full of fun weekend with some rad Sydney IGers! Thank you to all who attended the Art & About Apple Store meet and talk yesterday (and for all the kind words of support yesterday) and the Four Seasons (@fssydney) hosted meet to The Rocks today - both were great and it was really nice to see sooo many new faces.

Pictured here are some familiar guys, calculating their #strideby perfectly to fit with my OCD: @itsaaronpaul @arn64 @perfectlynormal.co ... but hmm, maybe Aaron in the shorts should have been in the middle?

It's safe to say my OCD with symmetry is brushing off with this kid.

In other news, I'm accepting virtual hugs and kind words wishing me luck with my talk alongside @solarfractal at Apple Store Sydney tomorrow
