My 32 hour journey from Pflügerstrasse, Berlin to Boyce Rd. Maroubra, Sydney (via London, Singapore and a lot of bad plane food).
The first real day of Spring, and Kreuzbergers descend on Görlitzer Park to celebrate.
A wintery Sunday of great music and a friendly crowd at Prince Charles, Berlin. Thanks to Dan and Lisa from It’s Bigger Than for organising such a fun event – and even better a fundraiser for Save the Children‘s Syria Appeal.
There’s no denying Berlin’s winter is long and hard. From October until April there is an almost total lack of sun, limited hours of daylight, constant below zero temperatures, and a colour palate limited to 50 shades of grey. Some days it feels like winter will never end. But it will, and it does – there is light at the end of the tunnel. So here is an Ode to Winter: grim, bleak, but also full of fragile beauty. A time for hibernation and reflection, shedding of old skins, and preparation for the rebirth of spring.

Fog, Polish dumplings, flavoured vodka, pigeons & stylish seniors. A wintery weekend roaming the streets of Krakow.
A wintery trip to Copenhagen to visit my favourite Dane.
It’s a quiet Sunday morning in Neukölln and there’s a sense of impending hibernation in the air. The clock turned back last night and I need gloves for the first time to keep feeling in my fingers. As the sun shines rays of fading warmth and the golden leaves continue their relentless fall, we prepare ourselves psychologically for the long winter months ahead.
A mid-summer weekend in Whistler.
Vancouver out in all its colours for the 2012 Pride Parade.
Three days of great music, great crowd and even better sunsets at Jericho Beach for the Vancouver Folk Music Festival.
A mid-summer trip through the Canadian Rocky Mountains to the stunning landscapes of Banff National Park, Alberta.
Who needs cars anyway? The Mount Pleasant community comes out to play for Car Free Vancouver Day.
The sun [finally] comes out in Vancity. Taken around Downtown Eastside, Chinatown, Mount Pleasant and Commercial Drive.
Exploring Kits and Mount Pleasant, Vancouver.

Some old houses whisper, others seem to shout. And while some come across as quiet, even silent, they each have their story.

A lazy Sunday back in Berlin, roaming the streets of Kreuzberg and Neukölln in search of markets, jewellery trunk shows, good coffee and even better waffles.
The sun is shining; spring is here.
These are some of the fluke moments when people stare into your camera lens just as you’re taking a photo. Often I don’t realise until I’m editing images much later. I like the serendipitous and eerie quality it gives.

If you’re a fan of markets then Amsterdam is your kind of city, with daily markets of farmer’s produce, bio food and flowers, to antiques, books, art and vintage clothes. I love the treasures you can kind in these places, not to mention the characters. Here are some images from and around Noordermarkt, Lindengracht-markt and Westergasfabriek-markt.
For a city with an average of 214 rainy days a year, I guess I’ve just been lucky.
