Let it Be?

  I took my camera on a stroll through my garden on Sunday with my 60mm (120mm equivalent) macro lens attached. I came across this little garden pest growing amongst the rocks near my clothesline. As I usually do, I got down low and spent some time shooting this lovely little flower. It’s growing quite wildly…

Birds & Cider

The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings. – J.M. Barrie, The Little White Bird.   These photos are going to Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab…

Fly By Night

Curves and Edges

I have walked through Brisbane Airport more than 100 times. On a return fight from Sydney recently, on a Friday night after 9pm, I noticed this structure on the rail station, which is one floor up from the main walkway between the terminal and the carpark. I’m sure I must have seen it before, but…

Sydneyside

I was in Sydney for work last week and one night, it was almost 7 before I got back from work, so did some googling and found a great spot to see the city, the bridge and even the Opera House. The light was fading and a storm was rolling in, so it was quite…
