The bonus of Sydney being such a bustling city, was there was a lot going on, lots of people moving around, who for the most part were completely oblivious, or simply didn’t care for another tourist with a camera. The result was that I could practice some busy street scenes I would never get at home.
I thought I’d take advantage of the low light capabilities of my new camera and shoot some scenes inside the building, as well as out on the street with the beautiful ornate carvings on show. Continue reading
IMAGE HEAVY POST.
What a year it’s been for me, full of exciting, and sometimes daunting changes. I am looking forward to a year of bright new beginnings (and with any luck, a new camera!).
Thankyou for your support during 2015. I look forward to sharing another year of the world through my eyes. For now, please enjoy my 2015 collection of images.
I was a late comer to Instagram, joining in June 2013 purely for the purpose of following my friend Jess Van Den on her adventures throughout the US and Canada. Instagram had both baffled and infuriated me, as I am an old school photographer – I learnt my skill back with film and hand developing … Continue reading
I decided that I won’t write a long and rambling post of all the ups and downs of 2014. I have documented my year fairly well both here and on Instagram. In all, it was a pretty good year. Continue reading
This is my place in time. I have a love/hate affair with Guildford, the little historical town on the edge of Perth’s Swan Valley. Growing up in West Midland (Woodbridge), only 5 minutes away by car we spent a lot of time in Guildford. Time I recall was mostly spent being dragged between antique … Continue reading
This is my place in time. I’ve been taking photos of people and places around Perth, mainly for myself but also for history. It’s my dream that in my retirement years and after I’m gone, that I be considered a key player in recording our history. That really would be amazing! I’ve been concerned … Continue reading
This is my place in time. I’m well over the halfway mark now! Here are a few more photographs to tick off the list, ahead of a review of the work I’ve completed so far. #81 – I bought a lottery ticket. Ok, that’s a blatant lie, I didn’t, I just photographed this newsagency on Barrack … Continue reading
This is my place in time. Well, this afternoon has established that I really need to address my workflow… four hours of editing for a post that the average person will look at for less than two minutes. Hmm. Still, the important thing is that you’re looking at it, so it wasn’t all for nothing. … Continue reading
I love a stolen moment. An everyday scene, quite ordinary, quickly forgotten, routine perhaps to the people involved in it. Often life gets so busy that I will snap away with my camera, perhaps inspired for a fleeting moment by a piece of architecture, or a collection of people, but then the photo ends up … Continue reading
Below are the absolute latest dates you can order from my Etsy shop for delivery before Christmas. I have worked it out to allow as much time as possible, with your parcels arriving a minimum of 4 days before Christmas (postal system and weather permitting). Continue reading
This is my place in time. #97 – Friday afternoon. Perth city commuters heading home on Friday 30th May, 2014. These photographs were taken as part of the “My place in time” challenge. You can find out more about the challenge here. These images have been edited for my blog and are … Continue reading
This weekend was a really special one for me, because Nina, one of my oldest / craziest / funnest / knows far too muchest friends finally tied the knot. It was a long time coming; she and Ricky have been together for a few months longer than Jason and I have (geez 2002 was a … Continue reading
