Sweet Fields

What would a trip to Queensland be without some shots of sugarcane? Since I saw the amazing photos set in sugarcane fields by Oracle Fox, I knew we'd have to stop and take some of our own. My grandma thought we were absolutely insane when we pulled over by the side of the highway and disappeared into the field.

I have had a few questions about my photos - so should say that Ian takes all my photos (except the ones that aren't of me, which I take). He is incredibly patient with my inarticulate direction and mad gesturing. He was also so kind as to remind me, during this shoot, how much snakes and spiders like to hang out in sugarcane.

Outfit details:
Dress - vintage from e-bay
Belt - vintage from Love Vintage fair
Shoes - Clark's originals - bored of these yet?


  1. Oh that is a very pretty dress. Seeing your pictures are reminding me how excited I am for summer to come.

  2. Beautiful! That dress is perfect, especially for the settings of the photographs. I love love love your blog so very much (and I want those shoes you are wearing!) xoxo

  3. Great photos! But I agree with Nana, you a totally insane!! Snakes/spiders LOVE those sort of fields, and I mean the nasty, will-kill-you-in-hours kind. Well, I'm just glad you told me about the photos AFTER you were safely back from the fields. :-) Okay, big sister rant over. I especially love the first photo, are you going to get some prints to put around the house?

  4. Fret not! I made lots of noise to frighten them off! Besides.. I live to tell the tale.

    Speaking of spiders though, I was chased down the stairs last night by a huntsman - it literally ran after me! All the way! It was the BIGGEST spider I have ever seen. Think dad's hand-span type big!

    I really like the second last photo with you sitting on the cart wheel Rebeccak ~ it looks cool.

    You are braver than me though ~ I don't know if I could tromp around in a cane field in just sandals...

  6. Wopnderful, wonderful photos in the wild sugar cane fields. Thank you very much for sharing my dear Rebeccak.

  7. Your photoshoots are increasingly amazing, although I think risking snakebites might be taking the blog a bit too seriously!

  8. I adore your dress, your hair and your shoes, perfect retro look :) and amazing backdrop for your pictures indeed! yeay for great guys that help you out with silly things like the blogging :)

  9. oooo, i want to play in those fields!!! reminds me of forrest gump (:

  10. I just said "oh wow" out loud on seeing that first shot. Beautiful setting, beautiful outfit :)

    Have a great start to the week!

  11. Risking spiders and snakes was definitely worth it... these are gorgeous! Love the dress, too. These pictures make me want summertime sooo badly!

  12. The 3rd picture is amazing, it was worth the venture into the sugar cane. The set makes me of think of small country towns during The Depression Era, like you're about to run off to the General Store after playing in the sugar cane.

  13. what a great shoot! I love this dress on you!

  14. I wish there were beautiful fields like this where I live!
    Such pretty photos, and I adore your dress.
