Sally Seltmann


Sally Seltmann (ex New Buffalo) played at a free outdoor festival by the Yarra tonight. I rode down on my bike after dinner to catch her and ended up catching some fireworks too.

Sally was charming as always. I just wish I'd had someone to go with!

Melbourne was HOT today. Sydney kind of weather - humid and 29. I'm in denial that winter is coming. I refuse to accept it.

I spent the day wandering around the city by myself - going to the art gallery, a second hand book fair and a pop-up cafe. The solitude is nice, but it gets old pretty quickly. Looking forward to making some solid friends soon...

I met a lovely girl at Sally Seltmann's merchdesk who I will hopefully see at gigs, but methinks I'll have to wait till my journalist friend from Sydney moves down here in April before I can truly say I have a gig-going friend.

As you can tell, I'm taking my camera everywhere at the moment. It probably reflects how hyper-aware I am of my surroundings. Everything is new and interesting, worth documenting. Plus I have Lightroom now, which makes things fun.

Hey thanks for the prayers and praise guys.

Glad you're enjoying my photo-journalling...

I feel like I portrayed that I have no friends, when really I'm making amazing friends, but they're not always free on weekends. Alas..
