Getting out of the city is always good and a day spent in Mount Diablo State Park gets you not only fresh country air but mesmerising views as you wind your way up steep roads to 2500feet sharing the road with both cyclist and cars, It’s a slow ride but so worth it. On the… Continue reading Mount Diablo State Park
A must visit place when in the SF Bay area. In spite of the overwhelming crowds its worth the short ferry ride across from pier 33 in San Francisco. The audio tour guide was well presented; you felt like you were there with the eerie reenactment. We were lucky to have a sunny day to… Continue reading Alcatraz
I decided to get up early yesterday morning and pay a visit to Kurnell; a quiet beachside suburb near where I live in Sydney. Its a strange place in that it is right here in busy buzzing Sydney but you feel like you have arrived in a small coastal country town. Time seems to slow… Continue reading Photographic Journey May 2018
Hello all I promised to upload a post once a month on both my writing and my photography. I have a confession to make; this month I have hardly taken any photos! I find it really hard to put enough focus on my writing to keep the momentum going as well as spend time (and… Continue reading Photographic Update April 2018
The sound of my alarm shocked my sleepy brain into action. I was groggy and so not ready to get up. For a moment I considered going back to sleep. My mind made several excuses for staying in bed….. it’s cloudy outside, sunrise will not be nice…. I have a big week ahead and need… Continue reading Good Morning Sunrise!

I’m not exactly a professional photographer and fairly new in the game of using a DSLR camera. The trick is volunteering till you get there.… Continue reading Music Festival Top 5
It finally arrived! A thin layer of snow greeted us this morning. Didn’t see it fall. It was just there when we woke up. Had to take some photos of the magic in our backyard. This lonely bench with the setting sun just caught my eye on my afternoon walk. Imagine the stories this bench… Continue reading White Fluffy Stuff
Just introducing my cute flatmate, Mr or Mrs Possum. Been hanging around for a long time now in spite of me having a cat. Seemed quite happy to play model. Possums along with kangaroos and koalas are iconic Australian fauna. They are nocturnal marsupials and apparently, we have 23 known species here. Often they are… Continue reading Hello Possum!
Nothing beats getting up early in the morning to capture the start to the day. It’s hard to get out of bed at 5am on a Sunday morning when your body says “I want to sleep”, but it is so worth it. I dragged myself out this morning to capture a few pictures of the… Continue reading Misty Morning on the Beach
My heart missed a beat when I saw the notice on one of my favourite Facebook groups “Volunteer photographer for music festival wanted” This was my chance. I love music and I love photography. To combine both sounded like heaven. I quickly responded. The start of a whirlwind week. Within 24 hours I was accepted… Continue reading Festival Photography
