Hello muffins! How was your weekend? Totally awesome I hope!

It’s been a while since I’ve shared my iPhone photos here on the blog. In fact, I thought I’d never do it again for some reason. But I’ve taken some lovely shots over the last few weeks (if I dare say so myself) and I wanted to share them with you.

Things have been really busy here at yellowtrace HQ of late. Too busy for words. I find myself working around the clock these days, and half the time I’m not really sure what I should be doing next. Having said all this, I’ve been so lucky to have had a few beautiful weekends out of Sydney over the last few weeks. With Husband’s parents recently relocating to Moss Vale in the Southern Highlands, and a couple of dear friends with beautiful holiday houses in Bundeena and Bundanoon, I have enjoyed my fair share of quiet moments, breathtaking scenery, yummy food, open fires and daggy clothes (I know it’s not cool but love my daggies – hooray!)

I find that the only time I can truly relax is when I go away for a couple of nights – when I’m away from my computer, the internet, the phone and the world. It takes me a few hours (and several glasses of wine – ha!) but once I hit that sweet spot of pure relaxation I often wonder how I ever get anything done. You know the feeling I’m talking about?

Anyway, I do hope you like the shots of some of my favourite weekend moment(s).

    Amazing photos Dana – can’t believe they were taken with an iPhone! Beautiful composition and love the way you’ve filtered them.

    Well that looks like a lovely weekend, and the absolute epitome of a good retreat. The images you’ve shared with us here are the essence of life, D! I love it. We have to work hard in order to take such pretty pictures; not to press the button, but to be fortunate enough to be present in that time and place. I hope you soaked it all up. I live for this sort of stuff — and not much else… Lets see what next! d

    Man you’re making me so jealous. I love your photos. I’ve been mulling switching to Iphone from BB for a minute, and you may have just pushed me to the other side. Nice job.
