1994. A Poloaroid Transfer

1995 Leaves - A Polaroid Transfer, Susannah Low

Back in 1994 I thought that this is what I would be doing. Taking the world by storm creating photo illustrative pieces using alternative photographic processes. Now some 16 years later Polaroid film is no more, and my beautiful 5×4 studio camera would be considered an antique! I remember the rush when I lifted the paper back to reveal this image. Such a high. I miss it.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what I should be doing. What I want to be doing. Thinking of ways I can free myself up, shake off the cobwebs and get my hands dirty. Watch this space…

Beach Holiday

near Bithray Inlet

We recently got back from a family holiday in Tathra on the NSW South Coast (another reason things have been a little quiet around here!). We had a brilliant time and after the first couple of cloudy days the weather picked up and it got quite warm! Eloise quickly immersed herself into the beach atmosphere making sandcastles every day, chasing seagulls and paddling in the ocean (read/see more about her adventures here). It’s such a beautiful part of the country. Lush green hills, amazing beaches, National Parks and bushwalks and lots of cheese tasting!!! I love it at this time of year, not too cold, not too hot and lovely and quiet!

One afternoon Rohan and I went exploring a tiny portion of the Mimosa Rocks National Park. I took the photos above near Bithray Inlet (below). They had the most amazing patterns and textures.

My little fairy

My little fairy girl

Look at my little girl! I’m having a proud Mummy moment. Rohan and I finally bought a digital SLR camera to play with, A Nikon D50. I am so excited! We took it for a whirl over at Montsalvat in Eltham. I am thrilled with the results (especially considering we didn’t really know what we were doing or indeed what the camera can REALLY do!). More photos can be seen over at Eloise’s blog. She had a wonderful afternoon. The fairy dress even seemed to make her walk differently! You could tell she felt very special.
