Featured on Handsome Things!

Hanneke from Handsome Things asked if she could do a feature on some of my photos from previous shoots that didn't make the final edit for some 
or other reason. These are some extras from In the Hall with the Candlestick and this is what Hanneke had to say:

What happens to the photos that aren’t chosen to be featured in a fashion spread? Well they are left to “gather pixel dust” (as Lauren Fowler would say) in a desktop folder somewhere. We’ve decided to get out our virtual feather duster and dust off these beautiful pics that weren’t selected for Alix-Rose Cowie’s beautiful fashion shoot In the hall with the candle stick.
While I’m dusting, Alix-Rose tells us a bit more about herself, her photography, her inspirations and aspirations.

The Pessimiss

 Kate Whitney Chauncey, known as The Pessimiss to followers of her fashion blog, was invited to do a guest post on Amber Jones' Thunder in Our Hearts
She asked me to take a casual 'press pic' of her for the feature so on Sunday afternoon I visited at her beautiful apartment and we took some pics of her in her bedroom, surrounded by her favourite things, and around the neighbourhood. These are my faves. 

See Kate's feature on Thunder in Our Hearts, here.

Amber Jones also asked me to send her my 15 favourite things for a post on her blog, you can see them here, if you'd like.

A trip.


 Something a bit different for me. I'm usually more confident taking a picture I've thought about for a little while so - although I know I should - I don't take my camera wherever I go. But I did have it with me today and I like these, so here they are. Went home for the weekend and amongst other things my dad and I made a stop at the tiny aquarium on the East London beach front.  The poor turtle was an amputee. The last pic was taken from the plane descending into Cape Town.
