mild turbulence for a warm spring day

The last few weeks have flown by so quickly that I barely had time to plan or pack for my trip back to Italy - so when I unpacked my small case this morning - I was pleasantly surprised that I had packed perfectly for the gorgeous spring weather that was waiting for me when I touched down into Rome yesterday. But its not hard to get spring fashion wrong. I have been to Rome 5 times, but never in spring. Seeing the flowers at the Spanish steps was like the postcards, literally.

One and only reason I tolerate  sitting in a tiny compartment with 300 other humans - the magnificent and breath taking view.  Always puts my life into perspective

stop off on the way home to meet a friend, and to eat of course. One of the reasons you should ever visit Italy. To Eat, Pray and to Love!

this dog has the worlds smartest owner. Note that the dog is wearing a collar, but no leash...

these two steps are the dogs leash. I was distracted by all the commotion of two dogs going at it - barking and carrying on - this little dog was lunging at a passer by pooch, but was held back as if my an invisible leash. He neither enters the store or leaves the steps. He is the king of these steps. He warns the owner of any entering customers, and wards off any unwanted hounds. But he never leaves his steps...

Cooking live on TVSN with Peter Mason

  Cooking live on TV with Satvik Foods on TVSN was another thrilling experience, filled with flavourful "here's something I prepared earlier" dishes, nerves, and lots of fun! My sister joined me for the first time for an intro, and we shared our passion for Ayurvedic-inspired cooking with Peter Mason and our live audience. Thank you to everyone who tuned in and supported us on this exciting culinary journey!

Starting this journey into photography feels like catching up with an old friend – my trusty Canon camera, a gift from my filmmaker dad over a decade ago. While life kept me busy raising my wonderful daughters, Sahana and Dylana, I put photography on hold for bedtime stories. But now, as I dive into learning about product photography, my creativity sparks. Behind the lens, I'm not just snapping pictures; I'm capturing memories and stories, a talent I believe runs in the family. The classroom has become a safe space filled with inspiration, where my classmates and I cheer each other on. Here, my knack for styling fits right in, blending with the skills of others. And our teachers, full of wisdom and encouragement, make every click of the camera feel like a chance for something great.

I was born into the Hare Krishna religion in Northern NSW and spent most of my childhood running wild with my 8 siblings.

I spent many years overseas and returned to my roots to raise my own daughters in the little rainforest village of Uki.
