Recyclable or Not // Melbourne, Australia
#igersMelbourne
Take a moment and stop. Stop.
I said stop.
It's not easy to stop yourself from thinking, and it's also not so easy to make your mind recycle rather than reuse certain ideas and thoughts you may have; but you can.
Sometimes it seems easy, and sometimes they seem hard, impossible, unable to be broken down into bits and re-pieced back to form something new again.
But whatever happens, remember - even if it takes effort the intangible may be recyclable, but our tangible selves our not.
Learn to respect not only your mind, but also your body. We only get one, and it's with us for our entirety, however long that may be...

A Captivating Corner // Melbourne, Australia.
#igersMelbourne
Melbourne, Melbourne, Melbourne; you lovely thing you.
I've missed my street photography, it's been so long since I walked your streets along a path of passion - in search of those moments that makes one click, tick. In fact, it is so long since I walked any streets with that as my main/only purpose.
I always enjoyed wandering the streets of Melbourne, searching for its' soul, waiting for images amidst the atmosphere, out there on the hunt for more, whatever the weather - whether alone or with others.
There was always something to discover.
At the time I felt this cold and rainy night didn't produce much overall, but looking back now a couple of years later I see it in a new light. Drawn to the vibrant, reflective colours at the time, the image preceding this one took my fancy more with a man jumping the tram tracks like the silhouetted figure in Henry Carrier Bresson's famous photo.
It's always good to look back over older images - time distances the memory, allowing you to see them for what they really are...

Your Captain Speaking // Sydney, Australia
#igersSydney
One week from now my friend and I will be back in the air and just a few hours from our first stop in Qatar!! I'm guessing that would put us maybe somewhere over the tip of India or somewhere like that. But I can't believe the time is finally upon us! We agreed to this trip by signing a serviette with a pen and raspberry juice back in June/July, and have been thinking about it and sharing places we want to visit ever since.
It's always exciting when it's less than a week until you take off and travel to the other side of the world, or anywhere a bit further afield for that matter.
I like the week out timing because you can look up the 7-day weather forecast and begin to have a somewhat accurate understanding for your arrival. For us, it's warmer over in England still then it is here. The seasons haven't quite swapped over but it's getting close. In my head I keep thinking of the cold of winter from January/February, but that's still a way off.
Looking like no rain for arrival, but maybe the day after. However in saying that I think there will be rain for departure. Whether it's actual rain I don't know, probably given the saturated circumstances of Australia lately, but I'm getting the feeling I'm going to be sad when it's time to go, and I can't always control tears anymore when they start to arrive, so forecasting some showers.
It's always hard to pack up one life and move onto the next journey - it's not finite, but I try to enjoy where I am as much as I can, so of course things are going to be missed, yet at the same time there is more to discover and experience.
It works both ways, and that's life: under and in / over and out.

Preparing to Pack // Hay, Australia
#igersHay
Yesterday I arrived home from my last weekend away / overnight trip in Australia.
As a result my backpack is now empty - ready and waiting to be filled up once more, this time in preparation for flying back to the UK next Saturday.
My good friend Georgina @galow22 and I are off for an epic road trip around Scotland, England and maybe France too, before further unplanned adventures occur - so far with the potential to include photography in Paris, volunteering in France, friends and work in Morocco, and maybe teaching English in Poland too - as well as family time in England.
The most important items for me to pack are my camera, batteries, passport, wallet and chargers; everything else is secondary.
Clothes are best to be dark, durable, and versatile. Couple of pairs shoes, a jacket, scarf, thermals, swimmers, quick drying Turkish towel, and all the basics. That's about it.
Laptop will be coming too for writing and editing images, and a worldwide power adapter - plus an Australian powerboard.
Some people see that as a luxury, but it has saved me time on so many occasions I feel it's worth it - plus for me it means I can charge my phone, camera and laptop all at once as powerpoints can be limited.
Throw in some earbuds and a plastic spoon, and we're pretty much done.
Countdown is on!! 6 more days of work, less than 12 until we fly. Woo!!

Beyond The Silence // Villingen-Schwenningen, Germany
#igersBlackForest #igersGermany #igersvillingenschwenningen
Amidst the plantation of pines, I found myself walking the white.
It had been there since the start, but the deeper I delved into the Black Forest, the more I marvelled at what was out there, just waiting to be found.
See snow is silent, where as rain is not. They both fall from the sky above and alter our environment, yet snow seems to fall in the most graceful manner - potentially causing grievances, but in a gentle way.
They both change the way we behave, what we do and where we go - at times making even the known seem unrecognisable.
Some see it as beauty, others as pain. Some desire it, others despise it. Some don't experience it at all, but quite a lot do - more than you may realise - and if they don't, they likely know someone who has.
***
In the silence, there is beauty.
In the silence, there is wonder.
In the silence there is sadness, there is joy, and sometimes thunder.
***
Surrounded by silence we separate ourselves from the world in which we really are. Life feels still, sometimes seeming like stagnation - other times like well earned time off.
But the thing with focussing too much on the inaction is that we forget there really is no such thing.
Everything keeps moving forward, tip-toeing into the future flux.
Change is inevitable, such is life. It always has been, it always will be. Embrace it if you can. If not, wait out the storm. All we have to do is learn to be okay with that. Are you okay with that?
***
Covered, but not contained.
Reflecting, but not restrained.
***
Amidst the silence, there is noise.
Beyond the silence, there is sound.
Listen. Find.
Be heard, be found.
