What do you look for in a photo?

What do you look for in a photo? In art? In the world?

I look for a piece of me. A reflection of where I’ve been.

A connection to between my life and what’s happening around me.

Sydney Harbour Bridge - All Lit Up

Tell me, what do you look for?

I took these photos (and a slew more) on Friday night in the heart of Sydney, Australia. It was a beautiful night filled with the famous lights of the Vivid Sydney Festival (learn more here). The buildings, structures and sculptures along the Sydney Harbour waterfront were lit to please. And they did.  This is what date night looked like for hundreds of us in Sydney the last few weeks. This is what I look for in art–emotion, connection and life.

A Whole-heartedly Beautiful Place

I visited this temple on New Year’s Day with 3 of my favourite people. The grounds of the Nan Tien Temple are breath-taking. Learn more about the temple, located in Wollongong, New South Wales, here: www.nantien.org.au.
