florence | street art by exit enter

During my wanders around Florence, I really enjoyed keeping an eye out for (and obviously photographing!) street art by Exit Enter.  Sweet, thought-provoking, and (I think) somewhat melancholy, it almost felt as though these little guys were keeping me company during my travels around the city ...

florence | boboli gardens

After my stay in Amsterdam, I flew to my favourite, favourite city - Florence.  Whilst in Florence, I spent an afternoon wandering around the Boboli Gardens, where I was also befriended by a super cute little cat, who followed me around and hung out with me on a bench by a fountain for awhile :) (this made me so happy!  I missed the Fur Kid while I was away).  The gardens have beautiful views over Florence and the surrounding countryside, not to mention the wonderful Avenue of Cypress Trees (incidentally, what's with the phrase not to mention when it is clearly mentioning the thing?).

Anyhoo, here are some photos!

coastal therapy

Thank you for your lovely comments and emails regarding my last post, they really mean a lot! xo.  I am slowly pulling myself out of this latest spiral, and luckily had an appointment to see my fab, lovely counsellor this afternoon, which helped a great deal.  So, hooray for small mercies.

Lately I have been spending more time then ever on Sydney's beautiful coastline, not only because it is gorgeous but also because I find it inexplicably therapeutic.  There is something about the vastness of the ocean that is calming to me.  I particularly love the coastal walk between Bronte and Bondi, and usually can't help but take some photographs along the way.  I am also trying to shoot some prints for home, which gives me a good excuse to get out and about.  Here is my latest batch of beachy images if you are at all interested :)
