a photo post ...

Sitting in a small railway station cafe in a country town. Waiting for the connecting train to come
and take me home. The hard goodbyes were said this morning and i've spent the rest of the day travelling by coach, rolling over many miles of road, passing varying degrees of scenery -
large fields of emptiness, long stretches of orchards or vineyards, scrubby bushland, and many country towns. As I sat and watched the fences slip and glide past, it made the distance feel so
far apart from my family's home and my sister's...

As I packed up and organised my baggage yesterday I also went through my photos which were still on my camera, and thought I would share a few from my last few days at my sister's home. :)

Jemima took me {and Hugh!} out for a late brunch on my was delicous!
a big thank you all for the lovely birthday greetings you left on the post my Mum put up -
they were so lovely to receive! i had a very special day!

Yesterday, as our final day together, we decided to do a spontaneous photo shoot. My brother in law has set up a 'light box' area in his work shed, to better showcase his work when he photographs them for his business, and I had a lot of fun using it for some 'studio-like' photos. We also took advantage of some rustic backdrops fun photos of the 4 brothers. Let me assure you that photographing 4 little boys can be quite a feat! Little Hugh was the quietest one there. :)

my sister, baby Hugh and I ... it was so lovely to spend so much time together -
living life with them day by day. i feel very blessed to have been able to stay as
long as i did, and to have those precious first few weeks with Hughie!
