Iโ€™m in love โ™ฅ๏ธ with my scruffy old vintage Land Rover, with South Africa & with my lifestyle.

Donโ€™t forget to BREATHE! ๐ŸŒฌโ„๏ธ
Itโ€™s so easy to forget, we have so much power in our breath.
.
Taking time to breathe deeply in a situation calms your body and mind.
.
Itโ€™s so funny that despite my previous life as an endurance athlete, I never associated my breathing with control of my mind.
.
You can see how happy I am surrounded by water ๐Ÿ˜โ„๏ธ where my #WaterSign homies at?! (#Pisces, #Scorpio & #Cancer) ๐Ÿ’ฆ

Ten of my favourite images from our recent exploration of film. Shot on @kodak #Portra400 on 3 different cameras over the last few months. Iโ€™ve gained so much from switching to film recently, itโ€™s demanding of your attention, no time (or money!) for throwaway shots. Digital allows you to have thousands of great photos, convenient when you need to work fast. Film asks you to be far more in the moment, pay more attention to the light, you shoot only when itโ€™s worth it. Just a different way of working as a photographer, but certainly Iโ€™ll be making more time in the future to explore the world of film! โšก๏ธ thank you @ellagracedenton for always getting creative with me โ™ฅ๏ธ
