This week I’m bringing back the virtual travels and taking you to my favorite island in the world... the ever so charming, chic, and alluring St. Barts. I’ll be showing you both the known and unknown treasures of this tiny island and I’ll be giving you a tour of my beach bungalow, Villa Palmier. Join me for some much needed beach time in stories this week. BYO rosé!
I woke up early this day and pushed the canoe out well before breakfast to go on a solo paddle and watch the sun crest over the mountainsides.
There was so little sound surrounding me, that even 300m away I could hear the tent unzip and my pajama clad daughter run out into the sand shouting 'mom' as soon as she realized I was no longer beside her.
I of course zipped quickly to shore, put her in a coat and lifejacket and immediately pushed off to go explore again.
Happy to have a co-pilot that will zig and zag with me before breakfast even if we are both only half awake.
Featured in the July issue of The Journal of Australian Ceramics is one of the projects completed on our Bruny Making trips over the summer. We invited local award-winning potters Ben and Peta Richardson of @ridgelinepottery to join us on this venture – an ambitious double-skinned step kiln with glazed bricks, situated on the sloping land at Waterview. ⠀
Square bricks and round geometry that tapered presented challenges in design and in construction. The momentum of making over a couple of days meant ideas needed to be tested in a compressed manner. The result is a beautiful kiln that stands ready to be trialled, the practice of firing clay a potential new skill to be learned by the JWA team on a future Bruny Making weekend.⠀

We thank Klynton Krause & @krausebricks for supplying an abundance of bricks in varying tapers and colours. Many thanks also to local bricklayer Peter Holloway whose expertise was greatly appreciated by us all.
Found this almost brand new set of stairs down the road for my hotel. I didn’t notice them at first as was shooting the details in the second and third shots. Once I noticed them I thought I could have been there forever shooting people waking up and down them to get to the trains. Chose to not waste the light and kept exploring but will go back to this spot for some street shots on my next trip there.
What do you think of this location? Do you stop when you spot a fresh set of stairs or am I the only weird one? 😂
No stress 🥰🥳
We all struggle. Everyone is fighting their own battle. Today, with this realization, try to be more patient. Make it a goal to make a difference. It doesn’t have to be some big, time consuming project. You don’t have to set out to change the world. Just have compassion and spread kindness. Those things are free and take little effort. Take a minute to truly listen to someone. Even small gestures go a long way.
What a year so far!!!!

NEW WORK: EDEN OF THE ORIENT
swipe for full view
The past few months were challenging. As the world went into lockdown, Hong Kong was spared from a major COVID-19 breakout. During these months, I wanted to continue my explorations in the territory with a new series that looks at ‘how do we live?’. In this new series, Eden of the Orient, I ventured out across the vast extents of Hong Kong. Instead of focusing on the city center, with its well-known skyline full of iconic buildings, I was more focused on the 9 Hong Kong New Towns. As about 50% of Hong Kong’s 7,5 million residents live in these new towns, they form the bulk of how most Hong Kong people are forced to live. Hong Kong has a unique set of characteristics, a grouping of different islands with vast country parks covering 75% of the land area. This leaves very little land left to build housing. The results are often staggering, hyperdense areas are set against abundant green.
Eden of the Orient is a photo-essay looking at the border between City and Nature, in a context that is unique in this world. Nowhere is this contrast this big, nowhere can you go from a hyper-dense city center to a mountain range of this size.

The sun had already set and light was fading fast, it was overcast and wet. As I was photographing the beautiful stone bridge a car drove past, I liked the way the headlights had lit up the ground in front of me so I parked my car in the same place and took a few photos.

Oberholz Mountain Hut
Location: Obereggen, Italy
The cantilevering structure grows out of the hill like a fallen tree with three main branches creating a symbiosis with the landscape. Each of them is facing towards the three most important surrounding mountains.
I highly recommend taking a trip through the Death Star in a Tesla with Elon Musk while smoking a joint.

I’ve always dreamed of photographing puffins in the snow, but for now this heavy rain and hail will do. I’m glad my @nikonuknordic gear can handle a good rain shower!
Alguns cuidados devem ser tomados durante o adensamento do concreto 🛠️📐⏳
É importante que a agulha fique na vertical e ela não deve encostar na armadura, uma vez que isso pode provocar um efeito reverso ao proposto pelo adensamento, criando uma região de separação entre o concreto e o aço.
Uma outra dica é não aproximar muito o vibrador das laterais da estrutura. É recomendado deixar uma distância de aproximadamente 10 cm para não forçar demais as fôrmas, pois isso pode provocar uma abertura na hora da concretagem.

Tres únicos momentos de prazer nos últimos meses:
1-Revolução anti-racista nos Estados Unidos
2-Manifestação pró democracia no Largo da Batata que acabei de passar
3-Um hamburguer que comi no almoço
Filmed my friends wedding of 5 during isolation. Never expected such a small wedding to be so epic!
