While enjoying a short-lived visit with my sister at her home in New South Wales, I simply couldn't miss the photographic opportunity presented by the gorgeous scenery surrounding one of her favourite hidden gems.
After the birth of my nephew, I was inspired to capture new life, and despite a biting winter, the lush gardens at this hole-in-the-wall managed to attract an array of wildlife; from pelicans to the people quietly observing them.
Since I only get to see my sister on school holidays, I take photos such as these to remind me of the times I do spend with her, and eagerly await my return to the cozy town she calls home.
The eerie, yet calm atmosphere was beautifully complimented by the dead stillness of the water, which had a mirror-like glaze over the surface, with minimal disturbances it really set the mood for the setting.
This project entitled "The Milk Factory" after its location, plays with the theme of "still life", but also with its stark opposite; "life in motion".
