Self Portrait taken with Thermal Camera on the 4-1-13 in a 40 Degree Day in Melbourne. It is 10.30 pm at night and still scorching.

Creating art and writing is like breathing to me, it keeps me alive. If I stop creating my world shrinks and contracts. When I start to create again it expands and is filled with colour. I feel whole. To create is to be completely, unabashedly alive.

  • My oh my it was a hot day on Friday. Still 40 degrees at 9 pm. Hard to cool down when it is like that. I tried to capture this heat with this series of photo taken with Thermal Camera. Happy 2013 to you Soxy.
