A very quick hello from Australia! I have just touched down in Sydney after a few awesome days exploring the best of Melbourne with a couple sets of local and very hospitable friends. I can’t say enough good things about that city and the extreme kindness I received throughout my entire stay! I managed to survive the 80% humidity mixed with 36C temperatures. This winter-loving Canuck gal is not overly happy to report that same weather seems to have joined me at my most recent destination…that said, I’m just itching to catch up with a whole new bunch of old friends in this neck of the woods and shoot a very special wedding next month.

From what I could tell throughout my short stay, Melbourne is all about alleyways, good quality street art and the best coffee you’ve ever tasted. This is the view looking down onto Flinders Lane from Jesse & Alina’s apartment. These two have very recently returned to Melbourne after five years of life in Banff and they’ve already got an absolutely fantastic set up in the heart of the city.
