A little R&R goes a long way

Just last weekend I decided to pack my boys in the car (the girls had school so had to stay with my sister) and head off to my father’s place in Bellingen Northern NSW.

I had never been there so didn’t know what to expect. I certainly didn’t expect paradise! There were photo opportunities around every corner, there were creeks, kingfishers, jersey cows, abandoned buildings, rainforests, eagles, bats and the list goes on and on!!

I took over 500 photos in just 2 days…now I have the exciting task of sorting through them all and discovering the gems!

While in Bellingen I discovered a second hand bookshop…needless to say I was lost for hours! To my delight I found 2 books on photography from the late 40s and 1 on Modern Water Colour Pigments – this book has all the pigment colours hand painted in the front of the book and then they are described in detail later on. As far as I can tell the book dates back to the early 1900s.

I have decided to name all the photos taken on my trip from the list of pigment colours – it should make for some interesting names!

I hope you enjoy viewing these images as much as I enjoyed taking them…
