The 52 Project


The 52 Project: A portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2014.


Cassidy: He is light and fast and agile and is constantly leaping up the highest boulders he can find. This one is named ‘Shark Fin Rock’.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Dash: Foamy fingers from playing in the rushing creek. We have had about 6 inches of rain this week, just in time to kick-start the spring growth. All our creeks are overflowing and the kids prefer to play in the many small streams which are just the right depth for walking through in gumboots and floating leaf-boats in.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Jem: loves splashing in the shallows but is not so game as his twin sister when it comes to getting wet in winter (sensible boy)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Scarlett: High and dry here, but minutes later she was in water up to her neck, clothes boots and all, in a deep part of the creek. We had to strip her off and wrap her in my jacket for the walk home up the hill.
