About


They call me Sam

I am a simple (I'd like to think), twenty-something Sydneysider who laughs often, wears animal onesies and enjoys a good cup of coffee above all other things.

I love adventure. Finding the hidden corners of my surrounding and delving deep into their stories is a hobby of mine. I live for it.

I started this blog when I hit a low in my life. I was lost and alone and I needed a space which I could call me own, somewhere I could write and express myself without fear and without self-doubt.

And now I am here. I have a blog and I have a camera and I love them both. On here, you'll find small fragments of me and the world I experience around me. I call this place home and while it is very much somewhere I come back to after a long day, it is also a place I want you to feel comfortable in too. I want to be able to open the doors of my blog to you and invite you in for some tea and biscuits.

So let's be friends yeah?


If there’s more that you would like to know then feel free to leave me a comment or a message :)

    1. Hey! Thanks so much lovely lady. I started off with a Canon 600D, then moved to a 60D and now I own a 5D mark III (which I adore to bits). I do love the 600D though, as an entry level camera it is amazing to use and learn on - I would recommend it to anyone!
