Hi, Ferris Wheel.
This was taken at Mandurah, more specifically, at the bike pass under Mandurah Estuary Bridge. Laura and I took a day trip down to Mandurah and spent the whole day cycling, eating and taking photos. Awesome day spent with lots of awesome photos taken.
The Tree 10/52
Since I was shooting at Millpoint Foreshore again, I was trying not to go for the cliche Perth nightshot hence, I stood further away from the riverbank this time and found the seemingly appropriate giant tree silheoutte against the sunset/cityscape. And even though it’s ewinter, you could still see the silheouttes of people enjoying their evening activities.
Bottle It Up 08/52
A song by Sara Bareilles.
I realise that: so many things we bottle up inside of us. We hide. We try to forget. We erase. And sometimes, there’s just so much we could hide or reveal to the people around us. It’s like a bottle. Sometimes, there’s just that much it can hold. And every person is a different bottle or a jar. I just realised this is why I collect jars. (I collect weird things yes. I know.) It’s not just how I could fill them up with other random things I collect. I like how they are all different. How they all hold different things. Things that fit. That it is content to hold. That doesn’t overwhelm.
Anyways, I know that I’ve been super slack even though it is holidays. And I shall catch up by this week. I promise.

Well, it’s the start of winter holidays and even though I’m now as free as a bird, I am even lazier as ever to go out to shoot. And I complain not having time to shoot when I’m busy with assignments and whatnot. Hypocrite.
So, I had to force myself to bring my camera along when I go out to work and on the way back, try to shoot anything interesting. Or not. Anything. And lucky something did catch my eye. The sunset. And the silhouette of this tree while I was walking home from the bus stop. And I played around with the photo a bit on Aperture and loved this shot.
Oh I love fall and winter.
stop along the way,
go on field trips,
find out how things work,
say the magic words,
trust the universe.
Light at the End of the Road 06/52
This was actually taken straight after the dinner at Shige. I know, I’m cheating. But I had no time whatsoever to take any photos last week. Was buried so deep in assignments that I was only going home ever to sleep and was living in uni for the rest of the time.
From the Outside 05/52
This was taken at Shige Restaurant, South Perth.
My friend and I were looking for dinner and we chanced upon this quaint little restaurant hidden away in a side street. I noticed it because of its storefront windows, so simple yet it makes such an impression. And even though it was quite a small place it was quite booked out. We nearly had to take-away our food and lucky someone cancelled their reservation last minute. We got seats outside the restaurant though, which is where I got the opportunity to take this photo.
They have the most marvellous udon.
And I actually took this photo on time. Just that I didn’t have the time to edit/post it.
