Missed One (2019) – Part of the ‘Remnants’ series
I was cutting my nails and then I got distracted. It took me two days to realise that I missed one. I just laughed at myself and I still left it there for another day or two until it just started feeling weird.
Short story short, adulting sucks.
Do You Want Ketchup, 2019
My series of photographing the mundane, yet everyday objects, continues. This is slowly starting to become a thing.
With every photograph that I take, there is a story behind it.
On this day, my kids and I went to the park as we had just bought a new bike for my son. We had not had lunch and it was getting pretty late, so we decided to go to the cafe in the park for something to eat. As we waited for our order, my children were outside playing.
Moments after I took this photo, I heard my daughter crying. She had fallen off her scooter. After I made sure she was ok, I told her to dust herself off and get back on it, but then the food was ready and we settled down to eat.
They had ordered their usual chips and nuggets.
We Are Gathered Here, 2019
I love photographing the mundane.
I think it is because life nowadays seems to become too busy and distracting that we tend to miss things that make a chuckle a little bit. Things that make us pause and wonder. Things that just let us be in the moment of thoughtfulness and peace. Things that just let us be, us.
Mushroom Bear, 2019
Another one where I was running late for a meeting, but just had to stop and take this photo. The first one is here.
Technically, I was on time, but I ended up at a different campus to the one I was supposed to be at. So on my way to the correct address, I saw this on the boarding for a building under construction and it did make me chuckle. My bad/disappointed mood about finding myself where I wasn’t meant to be, lifted.
Is this becoming one of those, ‘late photograph’ moments but with a different meaning?
Khai’s Peg (2019)
Makena’s Peg (2019)
I took these photos when I was in my kid’s school for their first open day. It is actually open evening as it happens after school where I get to meet their teachers and see how they are doing at the beginning of their current school year.
These are the pegs they use to hang their P.E. kits which they get to design their own name tags and I just love how cute they are.
