4/52 2014




I always struggle with celebrating Australia Day. It comes with a conflict, a perfect example was when I went to the shops this morning and a guy was wearing a t-shirt with the slogan "If you don't love it f__k off".

So the perfect celebration for me was this evening. Fish and chips at the park followed by a walk along the river.

Photo of our family taken by random stranger...setting thought in motion for something more.


Last year Jodi inspired me to pick up my camera and turn the focus inward. This year I have opted to continue with the series as I feel there are still so many family stories to be told through photos. So I will continue to Link up with Jodi  (the artist formerly known as Che & Fidel now Practising Simplicity) for the 52 Project.

  2. No, you are part of what it is to be Australian! Someone who has moved here... Australia is made up of people like you and I. A daughter of a Polish immigrant married to a son of a Chinese immigrant. Over 90% of our population comprises of people who have moved here. Just wish we would learn to love all

  6. I think that family portrait is a lovely one. We watched the Australia Day ceremony on TV, it made me cry, but mostly just seeing beautiful Canberra and feeling so 'homesick' Much love xoxox

  8. You are a woman of many homes! I am sure Australia misses you more than you miss it.

  9. Australia Day is when the first white settlers came to Australia. This date is debatable, but for me it excludes Australian Aboriginals who had lived here for years before hand. It seems to be a day that brings out much racial tension among all races.
