CONNECTIONS BLOG

CONNECTIONS
Affinity. Closeness. Longing for connection. These shared experiences are what elevate our lives beyond mere existence. Good or bad, they are the muse for poetry, the rhythm of music, and the ‘heart’ in our heart. This body of work is about exploring just that: our humanity seen through how we connect with something outside ourselves. That moment when we bare our souls and open our hearts.

The Eye Of The Beholder

The International Color Awards are always an interesting mix of images. I’m chuffed to say I won 2nd place in the Merit of Excellence in the People category. Yippee!

The entries for the Colour Awards come from 79 countries across the globe so as they say at the Oscars, "its an honour to be nominated."  I'm excited to share that I received 7 nominations across 4 categories, the details are below. Its always difficult to predict what the judges are looking for so the selection of what to enter is sometimes half the battle.

Passengers to the unknown

I've been spending a lot of time in airports this year. Maybe it's because I am a romantic, a sucker for a good story or have an overactive imagination but I love the collection of humanity and the myriad of stories an airport plays host to. Here are a few from the Hong Kong airport. I wonder what awaits this little boy with the aqua and green crocs?

Is the girl with the scarf enjoying a happy reunion with her boyfriend or a new friendship with the guy sitting across the aisle from her, who accidentally spurted his salad dressing on her when trying to open the packet at lunch?
