RAY OF LIGHT

HAIRIt's mid-winter, but today in Sydney feels just like this. I can feel a taste of the warm rays of the seasons ahead, spring especially. I have all the doors and windows open, bought a bunch of lavender for the dining table and am basking in the sun pouring through into my attic room, in bare feet and it isn't a bit cold (though I am folding a veritable mountain of clothes). My street is lined with jacarandas so I'm desperate for warmer days and the bright flower of knowing Christmas is just around the corner when they're in season. Jacarandas and bougainvillaea are my dreamiest favourites, all afire with colour and life. The picture here is from LA photographer Chantal Anderson. I've been browsing through her work and falling in all kinds of love. The California ones are especially lovely, I felt so at home in LA and surrounds because of the gold light and rambling landscape, so similar to home, a feeling captured beautifully in her work...
