Lost in Marrakech. We spent a month living right in the chaotic twisty streets, across from leather-sewers and herbalists, men hawking oranges and massive avocados, steamy pots of harira soup, the row of men with sewing machines who patched and re-patched my only pair of jeans, and the barber where Pete​ got used to being shaved with a straight blade while local men gathered to watch. We had hipster-esque cafes and endless tagine and the hammam we liked best for getting  steamed, and scrubbed. We had a donut man and a croissant man and a butcher woman. We had a two bedroom home with an open foyer and a private rooftop patio, on which it was an easy 20 degrees even in January, and we had just enough internet to do my work, and stream netflix. We had it all. 

It was a wonderful place to be lost in. Literally. All roads lead in seemingly no particular direction, and pretty well all roads somehow lead back to the main square. I didn't like hauling my big gear around the narrow streets, so this is really where I hit my stride with my Sony. Light, fast, vivid. Scenes like this were easy without bothering a soul. 

This was taken on my Sony A6000 and a 35mm 1.8 lens. I love the mix of brick, wood, and metal. I love the orange and the blue. I love the texture. And Marrakech had that in spades.

A storm breaks over Achill Sound. Never seen so many awesome waves of weather as I did driving the Wild Atlantic Way​. I am assuming that's where the "Wild" comes from ...

Rainy London Reflections.

Taken during Christmas, in Piccadilly Circus, on my Sony a6000 and a 35mm lens. It was far too busy and bustling (Christmas season no less) that I couldn't really get the tripod set up. Luckily the a6000 is small and light enough I could happily just snap away like this. I was after an umbrella silhouette. I'm really happy with how this one turned out!

Sometimes you just want to go unnoticed. In Marrakesh, I felt like I stood out more than usual and my bigger camera gear sure wasn't helping. 

So i retired the Canon and struck out with my Sony A6000, and a 35mm lens, and due to being substantially less noticeable and much more unobtrusive, I was able to capture candid moments like this one. 

He was sitting at his stall in the Medina, and he happened to be leaning into some really lovely light. I love the orange wall and blue books, and the triangular shape his body is making. I love that he's not looking at me either, the candid nature of it was what I was after.

A very moody sunset in the Wadi Rum desert, in Jordan.  Really love this photo for the complementary colours happening here - the blue and the orange. For a girl living in a rainforest, it turns out I sure love the desert!

Taken in April 2014.

Looks a bit surreal, but that's a lake at the bottom of the dunes. And I hope it's still there when I go back to Morocco in October!

I'll be returning with a full team with +The Giving Lens  to explore Morocco once again - retracing some of my steps (like hopefully back to this lake!) but also exploring new corners of this awesome country. I'll be doing it alongside the talented +Hillary Fox  and +Michael Bonocore  is coming along to film the whole thing for us.
We will be partnering with El Fenn in Marrakech, which supports and empowers local Moroccan artists and art in Moroccan culture. We'll be helping them start a photography program for the youth of Marrakech, alongside some local photographers! It's really going to be an incredible way to explore this city and get to know it's people, while at the same time using photography as a tool to empower, engage, inspire, and encourage youth in the city.

We're recruiting right now ... just saying!

‪#‎FlorenceMarigoldinBloom‬

I did not get the honour meeting little Florence. Nor have I ever met her mother in person, but I follow Michaela's blog (and journey). Though I'm not a mother I connected instantly to Michaela's honesty, struggle, hope, and fight. This was due mostly in part to her incredibly talented writing and her penchant for being very, very real. Painfully real.

The world lost little Florence Marigold, aged 3, one month ago yesterday to a battle she'd fought since birth with SMA. If you want to read more about this story, I highly recommend Michaela's blog Michaela Evanow (which recently won Best Motherhood Blog in Vancouver for 2015).

A hashtag and a call to plant marigolds in remembrance has emerged. I'd like to write something, anything eloquent here to go with my contribution but there just are few words yet.

These are my nieces, holding marigold flowers. I love to photograph them but they rarely sit still. The older one, T, is turning 8 this week. I couldn't be more proud to be an aunt to both of them. The marigolds are now living in the girls' garden among snap peas, kale, and strawberries.

Both portraits taken on a sony a7r and the 24-70mm lens, at 70mm and f/4.
