My love for umbrellas knows no end.
Last night, the Melbourne Writers Festival launched its program. I’ve been lucky enough to be interning there for the last few months and last night was the culmination of a lot of preparation and nerves. While the festival does not start until late August (hence about a month from now), it was really exciting to finally tell the world what we have been working on. You can head on over to the website to have a browse of the awesome events on offer – I know I already knew which events I’ll be going to. Tavi and Boris Johnson are high on the list!
Lisa, our director, gave a great speech – that’s her above. To me, I’d already heard what was on offer, but it was exciting to hear everyone’s reactions to who was coming to the festival. Well done Lisa and all of the team! It’s been a pleasure working with you so far and I cannot wait for the festival to start.
I’ve just joined 10 on 10! It is a project to take 10 photos on the 10th of every month, to grab a snapshot of your life in that moment. You are supposed to take one every hour, but I didn’t quite do that, but tried to get a shot every few hours, so that the whole day can be seen through these photos. The day was also my boyfriend’s birthday, so quite a few of the photos are dedicated to his day.

So I broke the rules a little bit, but I enjoyed the challenge of finding the beauty in the ordinary of a 9-5 working day. Ten on Ten was created by Rebekah and I found it through the beautiful Tahnee’s blog.
