The City, Sydney
The mind boggles with how this pandemic is playing out isn’t it? It feels like we are running
around chasing our tails trying to eliminate this virus. And at one stage we did do this and
did in a way that we were able to re-adjust back to the way we use too live and that was to
do what we wanted, were we wanted, when we wanted.
So how did we end up moving backward in time? With this time, I think it is even worse than
last time. In a way it feels like we are fighting an invisible ghost, that is a bit of an odd
statement isn’t it, but that statement is, well, true, in the fact that it disappears then
reappears, from out of know where.
But Covid is something that we going to have to live with, and hopefully we can eradicate
It again, and when we do. Let’s hope that it stays that way.
So after all of that, Sydney is now experiencing lock down 2.0 and I have to admit this time
around it is a little bit easier but not by much. My personal, to do list is long, but I am hoping
that it will get done, by the time we come out of lock down.
I know all successful people plan, what they do, on a daily, weekly and
monthly bases, which meant when I went into lock down it give us an opportunity to
press pause on our lives, and take some time out to look at our life plan, and make sure that
it is working, and if it isn’t, then to reemployment a new plan so that we can reach our goals
Finally, the thought process behind this video, editorial and the stills, is that I wanted to capture a of part, Sydney whilst it is in lock down.
Enjoy “Capture Me”

World Bikini Day
When the word "bikini" drops into your head you think of the female form don’t, we? Or more to the point we think of a beautiful place with even more amazing things to do when we are in the sun.
But I think what we really think of, when the word bikini drops into your head, is the amazing females that wear them.
So, when it was bought to my attention a few days ago, that world “bikini day” was dropping on the 5th of July, by the way it is the middle of Winter here in Sydney, but Summer in the Northern Hemisphere. The mind runs riot to what you see and what you would like to see right on the pages of LaMode, right??
So, I thought that I would correlate, what I would like to think are my favourite images from the last 3 years of editorials, that I have shot for LaMode magazine and put together an editorial that celebrates what again, I would like to think are the most tasteful images that I have created for the online publication.
Now what I am about to write, you may or may not agree which is OK with me, and if you get a little annoyed with me for writing this, please don’t send me an abusive message or leave a commit that will be damaging to my mental health, lol
So here goes, has the federal government left it so late in the piece to vaccinate the population? If they had moved their butts, and implemented a plan even before the vaccines arrived in Australia, I am pretty sure NSW wouldn’t be in lock down as of this moment. And also if they, allowed everyone that wanted to get the jab when they wanted to get it then, NSW, or more to the point Australia would be in better nick to move forward and let overseas travellers into the country and in turn the economy would be in an upturn and life would be so much better, as opposed to being stuck inside and hoping that everything will turn back to normal in a couple of weeks.
I also think that testing front line workers on a daily basses is something that they should have been, enforced months ago, regardless what the Covid count was.
So on that note enjoy “The Collection”
