Not long ago I was waiting for sunset at the Opera House steps in Sydney, It wasn’t the perfect light and surroundings that made me grateful, it was the people.   
Around me there were many with different ethnicities, existing and interacting with each other peacefully. It was a beautiful sight and one that created a moment of gratitude for the place I call home and the country I was born in, Australia.   
My reflection that evening was that I did nothing to deserve this lucky life and was simply born into it. It was my parents who had fled their homeland for a better life, it was their efforts and Australia accepting them that made it all possible. I have faith that in time many more will call Australia home and that the very words from our anthem prevail ‘We’ve boundless plains to share’.  
Photography for me truly speaks all languages and I hope images continue to change the world and encourage acceptance and equality.

I had been struggling of late, overwhelmed with constant interruptions and finding it difficult to spend time on ‘me’. The opportunity for a change of scenery presented itself and I grabbed it. I travelled with close friends to Byron, a place that easily guides you to slow down and relax.   
  The first visit to the ocean everything started making sense again, I was inspired and reminded to bring it back and pay attention to the now. With my camera in hand and the ocean as my backdrop this girl was the perfect reminder that the simple things make it all worth while, smiling at a stranger and being in the moment.
