My place in time – Nothing but trees.

Jason and I have just returned from a long overdue holiday down in the south west of Western Australia. On Tuesday morning we drove down to the Boranup Forest, a stretch of Karri trees not far from the coast. It was beautiful wandering through the cool forest in the morning light, listening to the rustle of the trees, and the chirping birds.

We thought it was a perfect spot to tick off a couple of the “My place in time” photo prompts. Continue reading

My place in time – A shop that’s no longer open.

It seemed an awfully long time since I’d seen the gates open, and I couldn’t help but feel that with it being such prime land, close to the city, that it was only a matter of time before it would make way for apartments. That nagging feeling intensified when I went to photograph the Maylands Traffic Bridge before its death. Continue reading

My place in time – My favourite restaurant.

They are always open to feedback (and act on it), and head up a beautiful team of genuinely happy and bright staff. Continue reading

My place in time – A little walk around Highgate.

On a drizzly May 10th, Jason and I took a little trip to the Highgate/Mt Lawley area to get our hands on the demonically good salted caramel doughnuts from Mary Street bakery. The bakery is always packed and noisy, so we decided to brave the weather and go for a walk instead, up Mary street and then around the block.

The area is hilly, and has good views out towards the city. I hope you enjoy the photos I took. Continue reading

My place in time – Roadwork (7th Avenue bridge).

Back in February, I was alerted to the news that the bridges were being removed. These photos span two dates, Februay 8th 2014, and May 28th, 2014. The bridges are due for destruction over the weekend 31st May.

Fare-thee-well bridges. Thank you for being so interesting! I passed under you many times on train trips throughout my childhood and early working life. I hope your beams are recycled, repurposed, and loved for many more years. Continue reading
