decisions, decisions…

Jo and I are slowly feeling our way around how to publish our book. So many things to think about! Do we find a publisher or self publish? Apply for grants or crowd fund?…….and on and on and on!! It isn’t an area we are familiar with but we are determined to see our project to completion. Almost there now. Here is a bit of a mock up of one of the pages that I just did.

VSCO…

I am seriously getting itchy feet, the creative kind! I am almost ready to get started on my next conceptual project, but, until then, I have to make do with playing around with some old images. I have used VSCO on these ones….just for something different.

 

Winter in St Andrews…

 

Winter, my favourite time of the year. A time to really enjoy catching up with all the locals that come to the market week in and week out. Jo and I spend a good 4 hours here each week…..it nourishes the soul and keeps us connected to the small rural community that we live in. Market time is our time. No husbands, no kids, no thinking about anything else except relaxing. Absolute bliss!

Here are a few of my favourite stalls that are part of my weekly ritual ‘market time’. First up, my veggie shopping. Then up the hill a bit for breakfast at the Thai stall (the best satay sauce in the southern hemisphere!) The penultimate destination is the Chai Tent with a hot, spicy cup of Chai from Robbie. Lots of time spent here for talking, laughing and watching the world go by.

Chook Chook…

These are a few of my older images that I thought I would add to my website. They were taken at the Royal Melbourne Show in 2011 and  you can see more images by clicking on the link below…

THE GRAND GUIGNOL AUTOMATON…

The laudanum Project

(…and here is my full group photo of the Laudanums)

THE LAUDANUM PROJECT presents
THE GRAND GUIGNOL AUTOMATON

The Laudanum Project would like to introduce you to Sandrine Moreaux. Sandrine is not like other girls. She is complicated. Very complicated. In the year of 1920 Sandrine arrived on the streets of Paris searching for the divine temple of her obsessions – the infamous Théâtre Du Grand Guignol. What she found therein was a terrifying reflection of her own yearnings and dreams that rendered her transformed, reborn but above all beautiful, so very beautiful.

The Grand Guignol Automaton is coming to the 2014 Melbourne Fringe Festival this September.

St Andrews Market Project, an update…

Jo and I are getting to the end of our market project and I now need to start sorting through the hundreds of photos that I have taken over the last year. It will be sad to bring it to an end, but, in a sense, it is just the beginning. Next…….the book!

Pat, the Queen of St Andrews…

Pat has worked tirelessly behind the scenes of St Andrews Market for over 10 years, planting and revegetating the local environment for the joy and pleasure of others. She lives just down the lane, past the pony rides, where she nurtures hundreds of indigenous seedlings ready for planting. All of her time is given freely so that the local environment can regenerate. We interviewed Pat many months ago for our St Andrews Project and have since discovered that not many people know about what she contributes to the space that so many get to enjoy. So this is a little ‘thank you’ to a wonderfully warm and generous human being.

Ah, Lady Lick-Penny…

In the words of the Laudanums…

“Without going into too much detail, there were accusations, games of hide and seek and several dead husbands who were all discovered with traces of succinylcholine in their systems. Please welcome back the innocent and the utterly not guilty, Lady Sophronia Lick-Penny!”
