Long Bach Nguyen

the work of pilot & photographer Long Nguyen made me so jealous i almost punched my computer. kidding! kind of. after spending an age looking at his incredible photographs i had such a feeling of gratitude for the fact that he’s shared them, giving us a veritable bird’s eye view into…

aeroplane

In the aeroplane over the sea

i once had an awful time on a flight from bloemfontein to cape town (which is, luckily, a pretty short route) and the only thing that got me through it was listening to sufjan stevens with my head resting on the window, staring out at the clouds. that’s not to…

These Things No.12

what, no new post yesterday? you’re probably not going to believe this but… we had another public holiday. what the heck is going on in south africa! you might be thinking. i have a feeling we’re trying to go for the record of the most public holidays in the entire world. anyway,…

Mariam Sitchinava

i’ve posted about mariam sitchinava before, and she proves to be a consistent favourite every time i check in and see her new work. some of her latest stuff is too good not to share – here are some of my favourites (tough to choose). i really love the work…

Tumblrrring

i save a lot of things to my tumblr. a lot. it’s a means for me to bookmark things i love on my daily internet travels so i can remember to revisit them later, and also another great way to share cool finds with people. it mostly has a pretty…

Jess: Things I Like Right Now

i’ve been a reader of jessica’s blog the shiny squirrel for ages now. i tried to think back to how i discovered her… but my memory fails me, as per usual. in fact – jessica’s succint style of posting was the inspiration behind my these things posts. i’m constantly reblogging &…

Diner Journal

Leah Campbell from Diner Journal contacted me some time ago asking if she could send me a copy of the latest issue of their publication. i politely replied HELLS YES thinking perhaps i could get a digital copy since i live on the other side of the world, but she very…

Michael Wells

michael wells is a photographer whose portfolio spans from interiors to portraiture to landscapes to cityscapes to other interesting work like the border projects… i got lost in it for quite a while, i tell you. i am particularly drawn to his interior shots that are so richly hued, and…

Let’s live here

spotted Château de Moissac on Desire to inspire and it made me go uurrrrggghhhhnnnnnnn whhhhyyyyy! what kind of torture is this?? why is this not MY château! damn the world! – etc. Built in a hill-top village, a refuge for lovers of ancient stones…In the early 17th century, the Château de Moissac-Bellevue…

Ruche & The Notebook

okay, i’ll admit it… i actually loved the notebook when it came out. 99% because of ryan gosling (obviously) & it is also quite aesthetically pleasing to watch. i could never watch it again because it seriously makes me cringe now and the story is pretty awful, but perhaps i can…

The Seeberger Brothers

Modern fashion photography was born when three brothers, Parisian postcard photographers, shifted their lenses to the upper echelon of French society in the early twentieth century. As impromptu portraits of beautiful women in inimitable finery at racecourses, resorts, and cafes began to appear in magazines, courant designers such as Chanel,…

20 like a dream

Like A Dream

hey, what’s this? a mid-week mini music mix – that’s what! i don’t know what it is with this time of year, but these weird autumnal months before true winter arrives always fly past my eyes and feel… well… kind of dreamy. as if my brain has gone into a state of…
