    I traveled to Sydney and spent a week with my family just to take it easy and to help me recuperate. Usually late in the evenings my baby sister (I say baby in comparative manner since I'm prehistoric) would just hang around with me in the lounge in between messaging her boyfriend, taking pointers in photography, and having late night snacks in pajamas. I decided to take random photos to document my sister's many different moods and faces.

    Please forgive some of the blurry shots - it is due to the limited light and shaky hands (still recovering)

    Phoenix, I spotted these over on Flickr first and had no idea Michelle was your sister. It's fun to shoot these kinds of series of people one really knows. What's interesting to me is how in certain photos, I wouldn't even think you were photographing the same person. Michelle is lovely - and she clearly has a good sense of humor, as well!

    Thanks BB, My father got re-married 10 years ago, and along with a new mum I was blessed with 2 new sisters. Despite my best efforts and warnings she has caught the photography bug, I very rarely see my family due the tyranny of distance, but when I do, I usually give her pointers and advise regarding photography.
