Lazyness with heaps to do

hi everyone.
gosh i feel like the worst photographer in the world. i havent picked up a camera in weeks, i just cant be fucked. yes i cant be fucked, no not really its just i have been having the most stressfull weeks i have had in a long time.
finding a house, finding a place to move in, traveling by train for hours on end(i hate trains arghhh) going here going there, seeing this house, seeing another house,m finally finding a house i like, paying the rent(having no money) moving out from the old place. packing up, cleaning up, renting a van o move my shit, arghhh. paying my masters course(no money again) accepting the offer, getting my marks sorted out, begging the university to pass me, finally passing me, sending the stuff, trying to figure out where to pay, the heat has been NON TOLERABLE.. and i just cant wait to be moved in my new place(love the room my god its like a studio in it self.. loves it)
anyways thats about it for now.
just bussy bussy, but while i was packing i found heaps of rolls i never developed. so cant wait to develope them and see what happens.
Randomness from my JOURNAL

So here i am, another day another post...
i have been really enjoying my time latetly, looking at all the images from vietnam, its been great, i can made 2 folios which i would very much like to use in for something, either exihibitions or shows, i need to look more into it.... ideas ideas ideas, need all to be developed lol.
So finding a place to move into, is not as easy as i thought, there are just so many places, and ive found good places, and now i am just waiting to hear back from them.. i need to move and find a place ASAP.. lol i really need to move...
so yeah thought i would put down some of the images i've been working with for the past few days. all from my recent vietnam trip..

I took this image of this Flower H'mong girl in Bac Ha market, in northern vietnam. she wasent very happy, she was buying veggies from this lady and she wasent happy being ripped off..

I remember this day, it was totally foggie and very difficult to photograph. yet i manage to produce great images from that day, this is a lady from the Red Dzao Tribe, in Sapa, Northern Vietnam.

This image was taken just as she scream at another old lady, she made me laugh. Bac Ha Market, Northen Vietnam, Lady from the Flower H'mong Tribe.

Took this image in Bac Ha market in northern vietnam, on a sunday. i just loved the contrasts it gave me.

I took this image in Hanoi, by the lake, i admire this kids for a while, they stood there for as long as i remember, it was great. dont know why but i enjoyed watching them.

Thats it for now i guess
till next time.

Vietnam and the whole Xmas Fuzz

Well its been a while since ive written, alot of things have happend since.. i finished my degree, i got into a masters(which means more studying but i have made my peace with it, its only a year and half), also i have gone and come back from Vietnam. spend Xmas and New years there, heaps of fun, meeting new ppl, seeing new things, learning new cultures, learning the history and exploring the landscapes... t

Vietnam is such a diverse place, such country full of beauty and culture.. full of rich history, some good some bad, yet the people are so derterment and rich in culture.... loved every moment of it, i wish i couldnt have stayed longer, but duty(real life) calls and sadly i had to come back...

The place was fantastic for photographs, and i didnt hesitate to take full advantage of it... so here i leave you with a new images from my trip.. just a few for now..

hope everyone is having a beauitufl time in this Brand NEW YEAR 08... wish everyone love, peace and happiness.
