Although I've been living in Sydney for almost seven months now I still feel like a bit of a blow in. I know the Inner West like the back of my hand but drop me outside that hep pocket and I'm like a little lost lamb. Last Friday Tim and I spent the day moseying around the Rocks and I gotta say, it is one of my very favourite Harbour City haunts. The crumbling sandstone staircases, trailing vines and cobblestoned alleys have won this bobbed lady over for good.

After hours of exploring and historical house touring (more on that later) we figured it was high time to wet our whistles at one of the many beautiful 19th century tiled pubs in the area. Just as my thirst had hit its peak a group of digital photography students appeared out of thin air and asked us to be their portrait subjects. As luck would have it the instructor also took a few shots on Tim's camera and boy did she know how to work that manual setting, kudos to her for that first photograph!

I have so many photographs from this day so keep your eyes peeled for a little follow up post including some handsome sepia portraits and a wee bit of local history. Also, I know my blog has had tumbleweeds blowing through it this past year but I'm trying my darndest to breathe new life into her! I have plenty of posts in the making which i'm awfully excited to share, if you have any ideas for posts you'd like to see I'd absolutely love to hear from you x

  1. Beautiful! The rocks is one of my favourite areas in Sydney, I never fail to enjoy wandering through the alleys, finding secret nooks and crannies. It's so nice to see you both smiling. :) x

  6. Hi Katie!

    I love these photos; the browns of your clothes playing off the stones... no wonder they wanted to snap you. Also, your dude is looking mighty fine. I'm glad to see you look so happy. If you ever get struck with wanderlust again, please come through Los Angeles <3
