"Good nature will always supply the absence of beauty; but beauty cannot supply the absence of good nature."- Joseph Addison

Dear readers
I haven't posted all that much lately, and for that I'm sorry.
I have had so many things to post about and lots of time in which to post, I just haven't been able to find the words to write about any of it.
So without further a due this is what I have been up too lately, in its photographic glory.
TUESDAY 5th APRIL: Went to Sydney with school for a photography excursion to see the Annie Leibovitz exhibition at the Museum of contemporary art ( For anyone who loves an interesting portrait photography I highly recommend you see it  ) and  play photographers scavenger hunt.(one of my favouite games)

Task 13: Create an interesting perspective of the Harbour bridge (So i took the photograph out of the Bus window whilst on the bridge)
THURSDAY 7th APRIL: Baked a Giant Rainbow White Chocolate Cupcake for my Art and Photography partner in crime Anthonyy, as he is moving away *extreme sad face*. I have to say not much went right with this cake, although the inside was amazingly colourful and moist, the outside was crispy and burnt and parts of the cake fell off, but all was good because I was able to glue it back together with icing.

The kitchen was well and truly Rainbow-erfied, luckily I was able to clean up most of the mess before Mother Duck got home.
My cake baking/decorating skills kind of suck, however I refuse to be beaten by baked goods so I will get better at it, even if it kills me!
SATURDAY 9th APRIL: Photo shoot at the beach with two of my amazing friends Soni and Kase, these girls may not be the most socially accepted beauties, they are however still beautiful girls and we were definitely fortunate enough to have great weather. We were also joined by Spinx, who has now become one of my many partners in crime. Our crime is swimming, stealing each others towels and dunking one another until Soni tells us that its home time, which was kinda sad because I really didn't want that day to end.

And this is a basic summary of the things I did last week.
This week has been relatively un-eventful, and photo-less I must say. I have spent some time with a few amazing people, become closer to a boy that I like a great deal, we even went on sort of a date...... to watch a kiddie movie 'HOP' by far the best movie about the Easter bunny EVER! and I am becoming even more nervous and excited about my up coming work experience with a photographer (Hello next week).

"Keep Calm and Carry On"

I thought I'd share this incredibly awesome site I found, I love it, so I thought you might too.
The keep calm-o-matic is an image generator that generates your version of the British 'Keep calm and carry on' poster. You can personalise your image by changing colours, fonts and wording. personally like mine.
Everybody should make their own and exhibit here. Cant wait to see the end product. Have fun.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to’s about learning how to dance in the rain."- Unknown

It seems to me that lately i have been chasing rainbows, quite literally. Not in the sense that i am trying to achieve the impossible, although i do try and achieve the impossible quite often, and in doing so have proven that the impossible doesn't exist. Because really, when you think about it, anything is possible.
The rainbows i have been chasing are colourful and wonderful in all respects and they're not just the ones in the sky, my rainbows can be a a thought, an idea a dream or a wish, my rainbows are now my aspirations and everything i want to achieve in this world.
My rainbows are also some photographs i took with mother duck out the front of our house after a storm.
