I can watch animals and the way they move fascinated for a long time....these little guys were picking the blossoms off, twirling them around in their beak and then dropping them, maybe there is some nectar at the base of the flower πŸ€”πŸŒΈ ... .. ... .. . ... . ... #way2ill_ #ig_shotz #ig_color #naturephotography #fatalframes #depthobsessed #rawurbanshots #urbanandstreet #createcommune #createexplore #visionofpictures #visualmobs #ilovejapan #japantravel #igersjp #tokyocameraclub #dopeclickz #gramslayers #artofvisuals #theimaged #imagegrind #streetfeat #streets_vision #streetshared #streetstyle #streetphotography #streetclassics #womencreating #peoplescreatives #bestfriend

Because Friday's are fun, and because my bae gave me the strength I asked for, forever indebted to him and the universe, I just needed to know I was still supported and a friend πŸ€—πŸŒΈπŸ’ͺ .... .. .. ... ... . .... .. #way2ill_ #fatalframes #rawurbanshots #urbanandstreet #ig_shotz #ig_color #gramslayers #igersjp #createcommune #createexplore #ilovejapan #japantravel #shotzdelight #agameoftones #tokyocameraclub #kyoto #streetfeat #streets_vision #streetshared #streetstyle #streetphotography #streetclassics #womencreating #visualmobs #moodygrams #moodyports #bestfriendgoals #connections #peoplescreatives

I wish i had more time in Nagano, it seemed like such a special place, finding this one quite close to the station, you would never know it existed until you walked around. Almost missed out on having dinner before our long train trip back to Tokyo because I wanted to get lost among the streets and see what else it had to show me πŸ’–πŸ§‘ ... .. .. .. .. .. . #way2ill_ #ilovejapan #japantravel #igersjp #rawurbanshots #urbanandstreet #streetfeat #streets_vision #streetshared #streetphotography #streetclassics #gramslayers #fatalframes #depthobsessed #dopeclickz #theimaged #imagegrind #artofvisuals #visualmobs #ig_shotz #ig_color #agameoftones #womencreating #peoplescreatives #nagano #bestfriend #connections #visualsoflife #missingyou

Are you sure this is the right way? That feeling you get when you want to keep moving forward, but unsure of the direction the path is taking you till you actually get there and realise it was the right one.

Part 3. So after all the emotion passed, I keep thinking what am I actually doing?, Even if I could go back will it be the same? Or will it always be me thinking will he leave again?, I still feel like I'm being selfish somehow, always trying to reel him back in, distract him from the reason he left in the first place and just want him to miss me as much as I miss him, but after all that why?, what's the point?, either he will or he won't miss me, there is nothing I can do, why do I keep trying to force the situation?....I know it's only because I miss the friendship, that someone actually understood me and let me be me, I go through this cycle all the time....it's a hard habit to break, I feel like I've conditioned my mind to think of him and only him, like an obsession. I don't want to be that person, the last time we spoke was Monday, I decided after that train ride that same day and the next, I need to try and not contact him anymore, I just keep trying to hold on and hurt myself more. I concentrated on my work and home life. He contacted me yesterday, but I was ok yesterday and just looked at it like it was any of my friendships...but still he lingers on my mind, like a daydream I love going to every day, where we're walking side by side... I will still try not to contact anymore and let it be what it is and what it will be, just a memory that left a very big impression πŸ’–πŸŒΈ ... .. .. .. . ... . .... #way2ill_ #agameoftones #rawurbanshots #fatalframes #urbanandstreet #ilovejapan #igersjp #japantravel #gramslayers #createcommune #createexplore #womencreating #moodygrams #moodyports #peoplescreatives #visualmobs #artofvisuals #streets_vision #streetshared #streetphotography #streetclassics #depthobsessed #bestfriend #missingyou #connections #habitsarehardtobreak #ig_shotz #ig_color

Part 2. Ok so where were we.....Are you single? Yes... but not really, yes you are single? Well yes but I'm trying to get over someone. Oh sorry was it recent?, not really..meanwhile the lady on the other end of the seat was already looking intrigued, the guy across from me glaring my way, my heart started going faster..Did you dump him? or did he dump you? He left..Oh that's why it hurts more..why did he leave? I started to get that lump in my throat where you can't speak? I tried to talk..she said that's ok you don't have to tell me. I said today's just not a good day,she asked if something had happened, I said no just emotional today not sure why. Women are strong you'll get through it, he probably wasn't worth it..scanning my face for an answer, was he worth it? I responded yes..without any hesitation..she started saying it's happened to me x2 and they were both worth it too, but maybe he wasn't worth it if he didn't stay. After that comment I couldn't speak anymore, I was looking for an exit, I needed an escape, she kept babbling saying I should listen to music & post up my pics to keep going, all of which I've already been doing for a while. I know she was trying to help. She said you are lovely though, you'll find someone better, my name is Melina what's yours...i responded...she asked if i needed a tissue..i said no it's ok, she said I'll let you be then...up until this point I had kept it together after she left the tears didn't stop rolling down my face...Part 3 will be uplifting stay tuned...and thank you for reading πŸ™ .. .. .. . #way2ill_ #agameoftones #fatalframes #dopeclickz #gramslayers #createcommune #createexplore #theimaged #imagegrind #urbanandstreet #rawurbanshots #ilovejapan #japantravel #igersjp #visualmobs #peoplescreatives #womencreating #artofvisuals #moodygrams #moodyports #streets_vision #streetshared #streetphotography #streetclassics #naturephotography #bestfriend #missingyou #connections #depthobsessed #eclectic_shotz

Part 1. Being a woman we can sometimes be quite emotional, I've learnt after the last few years when I am feeling like this....it's best to distance myself from others and keep conversations to a minimum until i can gather my thoughts and figure out exactly what it is I'm emotional about, this way I don't hurt anyone else....this is where part of a story starts, so because I was missing my best friend so much i decided to msg him....I'm not sure whether or not it was the right thing to do, but sometimes I feel a pull to do something and i act on it without knowing why....anyway for the first time in ages the conversation flowed....I wanted to stay in this bubble for a while....so i dismissed the time it was to leave work, dismissed my boss talking to me....i was immersed, willing him to pull me out of this mood....finally i left still feeling quite emotional thinking he could've put my feelings at ease....i think it made me miss him more.....(this is a guy i was seeing for 2yrs n have spent the last 2yrs trying to move on from)....I went to the train station...got on the train immersed in my Instagram posting a pic, when this lady passed through the carriage and stopped to look at me...i looked up and smiled, she smiled back and sat down next to me, she started to talk to me....excuse me but are you single, sorry, but, I'm trying to set up my friend on a date.......the next part of the story will be in my next post....as this one is already wayyyy too long...stay tuned for part 2..πŸ˜‰ ...... . .... ... ... . .. . #way2ill_ #agameoftones #rawurbanshots #urbanandstreet #ilovejapan #japantravel #igersjp #dopeclickz #fatalframes #visualmobs #artofvisuals #gramslayers #moodygrams #moodyports #depthobsessed #streets_vision #streetshared #streetphotography #streetclassics #theimaged #imagegrind #peoplescreatives #womencreating #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #bestfriend #connections #missingyou

Last one of the refugee series.....there were about 5 or 6 refugees that told you their story about what had happened to them and how they left their country thru a mini video.....although i now can't remember this lady's name or her story properly....i remember a few things...i think people were raiding their village, her mum grabbed her and her grandmother and escaped... they came with nothing all she brought was herself.....she kept saying i brought nothing, this is what i came with.....think about what what your family means to you and what it would feel like to leave your home and everything you own in a second, always treat people with respect...we are after all Human 🧑🧑🧑 Apologies, I'm not sure who put this one together and i can't find it on the Biennale booklet πŸ™ ... ... .. .. .. . ... #way2ill_ #agameoftones #dopeclickz #rawurbanshots #urbanandstreet #fatalframes #gramslayers #ilovesydney #artofvisuals #visualmobs #createcommune #createexplore #theimaged #imagegrind #biennaleofsydney #igerssyd_biennale #mcaaustralia #igerssydney #igersaustraliaofficial #womencreating #moodygrams #moodyports #peoplescreatives #humanity #bestfriend @biennalesydney@igerssydney@mca_australia@cockatooisland

An abstract artwork - when i discovered @karenburgess at the Head on festival this year at #me.artspace - Patterns of Construction....she was kind enough to encourage me to look at things differently and was so passionate about her work and told me to keep going and I should enter next year's Head On festival, to keep trying, because if you never try you will never know what you will achieve. I had a look at past works she had also taken photos of old shipping containers and textures of old buidlings overseas that looked like abstract paintings, this is just an example of something we may see just as a shipping container, it has a story and the wearing and aging can actually be quite beautiful....to take a section of something big and see how something that's quite an eyesore can transform and maybe even change your mind. Just with that small piece of an afternoon she has made me look at things differently....zoom into seeing things that others may not see. I love it when i see a different point of view and absorb it, live it, breathe it and let it transform me. I can't thank her enough for giving me inspiration and the passion to keep going πŸ™ ....What just looked like a shipping container now has my own story behind it,we should all be lifting each other up to be the best we can be! ... .. .. .. #way2ill_ #artofvisuals #dopeclickz #fatalframes #visualmobs #visualsofearth #rawurbanshots #urbanandstreet #streetfeat #streets_vision #streetshared #streetclassics #agameoftones #ilovesydney #theimaged #imagegrind #headonfestival #womencreating #gramslayers #moodygrams #depthobsessed #peoplescreatives #biennaleofsydney #igerssyd_biennale #igerssydney #sydneybiennale #bestfriend #igersaustraliaofficial

#Yukinoriyanagi Icarus Container 2018, comprimises a labyrinthine tunnel made from shipping containers repurposed as a representation of capitalism and global networks of distribution. Referecing the Ancient Greek parable of Icarus, who flew too close to the sun and fell into the sea, Yanagi articulates the ramifications of the myth of human advancement through capitalism and investigates the development of nuclear technology, likening nuclear fusion to the creation of an artificial sun. This artwork was slightly eerie and I'm definitely glad there was light in the containers from mirrors which were placed inside to reflect the light throughout.....I definitely would not like to ever be transported by a shipping container πŸ˜₯ - take a tour of the labyrinth!! ..... ... .. .. . ....... ... @biennalesydney@mca_australia@igerssydney@cockatooisland #igerssyd_biennale #biennaleofsydney #mcaaustralia #sydneybiennale #agameoftones #dopeclickz #depthobsessed #fatalframes #streets_vision #streetphotography #streetclassics #createcommune #createexplore #streetshared #visualmobs #gramslayers #globalnightsquad #rawurbanshots #urbanandstreet #theimaged #imagegrind #bestfriend #missingyou #connections
