Featured in – Color Me A Rainbow (Pink) – 29Nov2011

I love fresh flowers, they really do cheer me up! Scented or sculptural, pastel or bold, they give me a lift and remind me that beauty is among us and I need to slow down to enjoy the moment.

According to the University of New Jersey, studies show that flowers trigger happy and positive emotions and relieve stress.

I didn’t need science to prove it… :-D

I live in the Northern Territory of Australia. It is rugged, remote and ancient. I love to capture moments that we may easily miss or pass by. I need to slow down, live life, notice the little things and breathe….. rather than rush to my next meeting through the artificial world. Beauty is all around us, the more you look, the more you see…
Unless stated, my images are straight from the camera with minimal processing.
