Hello, Sydney.
I have returned.  I don't know what that means just yet, but at least it's warm. I'm happy to be seeing old friends and looking forward to meeting new ones. Feel free to drop me a line some time. I do bite, but I tame nicely with regular feeding and contact.

I'm in Melbourne next Wed-Sun. Week after maybe? Could possibly do dinner Monday/Tues I guess, or Sunday depending when I get my ass back in town. Unless you want to come to Melbourne with me??? :)

hahah I have too much stuff left to do here in Sydney now that I'm back, so I don't think I can justify an interstate trip just yet. let me know next time you're heading out somewhere exciting though.
We can catch up when you're back, probably best :)

Err I probably won't be going anywhere for a LONG time - have no leave accrued and won't be allowed any for at least two months. And there is ALWAYS time to justify an interstate trip :P Look at it this way - what's another couple of days in sorting out stuff in Sydney? :P It'll all still be here when you get back.

Probably the safest bet to catch up when I get back, yeah :)

Nice to hear you're back home safe and sound Jess !!!!!! Hope this means you'll be posting more of your photos that you've taken and some of you too :faint::heart4uplz: !!!!!! We usually don't hear the cicadas here till August , which I guess would be like March for you . A sign Winter is not far ahead . :tighthug::blowkiss::heart::huggle::love::iconyoureverywelcome:

Thanks Dave, it's nice to hear from you too! I've actually already been on one shoot this week so I've just got to figure out where to store the new shots (hdd is chocka-block full) and then I can post :)

Cicadas near my hometown can go all year but mostly we don't get them until November in Syd. :)

You're quite welcome my Friend !!!!!! I think I saw one of the images , at least of you as a Model .... a portrait Eric did of you :faint::heart: !!!!!! LOVED it :iconheartafireplz: !!!!!! I always look forward to seeing your Art , on either side of the camera and can't wait !!!!!!

Must stay pretty warm there then most of the year . I know you can get snow in Sydney , but to have the cicadas out in Spring , wow !!!!!! They might last here for around 2 months . Here it's just bloody cold right now with 2" to 4" of snow by Tuesday ..... I'd take the cicadas right now ;) !!!!!!

I really am happy you're back !!!!!! You're one of my earliest Friends here on dA !!!!!! :tighthug::blowkiss::heart::huggle::love::iconyoureverywelcome:

Thanks Dave, just a few quick snapshots with Eric but some turned out quite nice. Glad you like the one he's posted.

I don't think it's snowed in Sydney in the last hundred years (city, I mean - It can snow rarely up in the Blue Mountains but that's quite high above sea level). Coldest it gets here in the city is about 50 degrees F - and that's at night. So you only really get three months of the year that are below 68F ever. Oh dear, why am I giving you a meteorology lesson? I'll stop now ;) Basically, we're spoiled. ;)

There was a lot of early snow in Berlin this December so I have to say I'm happy being warm and listening to those cicadas. I hope you keep nice and toasty at home and spring comes to you early :)

The pleasure was all mine Jess !!!!!!

I thought I remembered seeing images of the Sydney Opera House with a dusting of snow on it back in the mid 1980's . Still , 50 degrees at night isn't bad at all !!!!!! Sounds like my kind of place , but I know it can get really hot there !!!!!! You guy's had your hottest Summer ever within the last couple of years if I remember right . Still , cold hurts !!!!!! Hey no worry Jess , if there were ever any way possible , Australia is a place I'd LOVE to visit !!!!!! First , you speak English which make it soooo much easier than going to European countries , and I've made so many Friends there because of dA . Of course I'd LOVE to see you , Andy , Eric and a lot of other folk who live all over Australia !!!!!! Aaaa , if I ever win the lottery ;) !!!!!!

Yeah , Europe got hit hard this year with lots of snow and cold . You know , that's the one thing that would really mess with my brain is the difference in the Seasons between the hemispheres . To have Christmas when it's hot out ..... especially when we had snow this year , a white Christmas !!!!!! Anyway , it's nice you're back home in the warm weather and yes Ma'am , I am staying in , maybe only going out to get the mail one day , but otherwise I'm in where it's warm till Thursday !!!!!! :tighthug::blowkiss::heart::huggle::love::iconyoureverywelcome:

haha maybe the picture you saw was one of these - [link]

;)

I hope you do make it over here one day. Maybe when the US economy/currency recovers a bit :)

Hehehe , you are soooo cute :lick: !!!!!! No Ma'am , that's not what I remember seeing , but now that I know these exist , when someday I DO make it down there , I'm getting one of them just to be able to say I DID see snow on the Opera House ;) !!!!!!

I'd really LOVE to Jess , but not only does the dollar need to be stronger , but I need a job . I've been out of work for a year and seven months . :tighthug::blowkiss::heart::huggle::love::iconyoureverywelcome:

Nice to have you back milady! :wave:

Not too bad milady, not too bad. Been through a sort of "may you live in interesting times" period, but no complaints. Hope that all is well with you.
spidercuffs's avatar
Oh yes, I know what that's like. Hope things are looking a little less... 'interesting' for you now.

Hi Jez, good to hear from you. I seriously cannot get over how great your recent shoots look. Love the models you've been working with. How have you been, are you still around Newtown? :)

Thanks! I've been very well, working full time now so not as much time to shoot unfortunately, but still living it up in Newtown =)
What are you going to be up to now that you're back?
spidercuffs's avatar
Thanks Jez,
Am I getting mixed up, or are you working as a teacher?

I'm sort of just settling back into Sydney at the moment... fixing up broken things and slowly getting ready to start looking for work again. It's kinda nice to just catch up with people, doing shoots and enjoying the summer warmth :)
