I’m extremely lucky at work to sit next to my friend who has the same off (off) beat sense of humour as I do. She makes me laugh all day without fail. And I mean really laugh. Like, tears in the eyes, laugh. She also loves animals as much as I do and has this beautiful Nick Brandt elephant shot as her screensaver. Every time I see it I’m shocked by how striking it is. Africa sure is a long way from Australia but it may be getting about that time to pay it a visit.
A little while ago an Aussie wedding on Green Wedding Shoes caught my eye. It was stunning, simple, beautiful. I couldn’t stop thinking about it and how much I loved the warmth projected. So when my lovely friends at Elle Decor South Africa asked me to contribute a guest post for their International 25th Birthday issue – lightbulb moment. And how beautiful are Tim Coulson’s photos? De-vine.
I get a little torn with photos like this. On the one hand, I think they’re an incredible reminder of the beauty and power in nature and the amazing talent of photographers, but on the other hand, I hate how some animals are celebrated while others are tormented and horrifically abused within the intensive farming process. It just seems so incredibly unfair you know? If you click through though, you will see some gorgeous imagery.
