Sand


















If you've been reading this blog for a while now, you might have figured out that while I am by no means a minimalist, every now and then my interest in the trend fluctuates. At the moment I'm riding a high, but next week I'll probably be drooling over handmade polymer clay badges, all things colourful and confetti. All things brown and beautiful which have piqued my interest include eye shadow, suede heels and impeccably tailored suits. What's so interesting about this aesthetic is that unlike any other it appears so insular. It's an all or nothing approach really, with no room for incorporating one or two key pieces into an outfit. That probably doesn't make a lot of sense to anyone else but if you think about it there's a certain cut or way to wear these clothes in order to truly elevate them. Beige is really unlike white and black in that regard, unable to permeate shopping malls wherever they might be and not considered a staple to any wardrobe. Enough meditation on beige and its many uses in fashion, I have something else to show you guys:

Lately I've been out exploring with friends from university, in this case we went to Sorrento for a reconnaissance. The views are absolutely spectacular, but the cliffs themselves were dangerous and prone to rock falls. From afar you can see the truncation of overlying sequences and change in the angle of these ancient sand dune ripples. A number of important paleontogolical discoveries had also been made at the areas we visited, including emu tracks and an egg, as well as the skull of a giant marsupial, Zygomaturus. I wasn't planning on taking photos but since the views were so spectacular, how could anyone resist? Although they were taken using the camera in my phone, I'm quite happy with how they turned out.
