Genova


Genova. I've never been before, so when a day trip with the family was suggested, I was without hesitation. The drive was so scenic with snow capped mountain looming on one side, and sparkling mediterranean on the other side. The city is set on mountainous terrain that sweeps into a large port, but its the old buildings wrapped in modern highways that is the bizarre sight to my eyes. I have done my fair share of exploring the globe, and new sites are always going to be fascinating, but when you have no pictures in your memory bank to compare new places, the feeling is aliveness.
The aquarium, the point of the trip, is the largest in Europe - I have to highlight that it is barely half the size of the modest Melbourne aquarium. 2 bored dolphins, a few small sharks and seals, and a range of tropical fish made up the inhabitants. Its nice to see the emphasis on the environment, because elsewhere in Italy it barely exists - but the largest in Europe was hard to believe.
Docked port side of the Aquarium was The restored ship of Christopher Columbus. It is a spectacular sight to behold - almost comical surrounded by million dollar yachts, and the giant glass sphere containing fauna and birdlife. With daylight savings over, the day was not nearly enough. I look forward to another visit

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.

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!

I was born into the Hare Krishna religion in Northern NSW and spent most of my childhood running wild with my 8 siblings. Growing up, I was deeply influenced by stories and traditions of the varied spiritual doctrines my eccentric mother subscribed to. This left me with a rich curiosity, and audaciousness to seek out the world for myself. I spent many years overseas and returned to my roots to raise my own daughters in the little rainforest village of Uki.
