Uncomfortable With An iPhone

This weekend past saw me in Melbourne holidaying with a newer friend. When packing I decided not to pack my camera. My thought process being that I wanted to focus on relaxing, instead of feeling like I “had” to use my camera. Of course as we pounded the pavement of Melbourne’s CBD on Saturday the…

Seeing Anxiety

Thoughts race at high speed. Negative. Unhealthy. Real. The urge to flee. To nowhere specific just away from now. Breath is shallow. The mind races. Escape not possible. Thoughts race at high speed. Negative. Unhealthy. Real. A seperation occurs. A sideways step from reality. Observing the reaction. Knowing it’s taking place yet knowing there is…

A Black & White Setting Sun

This is a photo from 12 months ago that I found today whilst looking for another photo. As often happens. I like that its in black and white. The blue colour of the sky wasn’t dramatic enough for me. Shooting in black and white is one of the things I love about my X-Pro1. Whilst…

Learning Takes Time

Having only spent the past four years or so falling back in love with photography there has been a lot of catching up to do. Most of it has centred around post processing. I grew up with film photography. When digital photography became an option it was, for me, prohibitively expensive. I couldn’t justify the…

Unexpected Tension

Come outside. Quickly. Moving fast, trying to breathe life into something that should have given up a long time ago. Back and forth. dashing here, there. Spraying something cold. It fires. then stops. Again. this cycle is repeated. I see the tension pulsing through his body. Tamping down an underlying anger. This is not what…

A Good Sunset, Again…

This evenings sunset was a stunner. The sunsets over the past few evenings have been bland, with little colour in the sky, although the sun has reminded me of a large burning ball, which i guess it kind of is. However this one was a show stopper. At the end of a long, tiring day,…

A historic day

I recently had the pleasure of being onboard the PS Melbourne with over 120 other passengers and crew as she cruised along the Murray River making her way to Wentworth, in doing so leaving the Murray River & entering the waters of the Darling River. The day trip starting at 8am & finishing at 4:30pm…

There Is Such Beauty In The Sky…

I can’t seem to stop looking at the sky. And not just at sunrise or sunset. Some pretty amazing skies happen during the middle of the day too. Clouds that streak across the sky, stretched out as though they are trying to reach from one side of earth to the other. Or large dark clouds,…

In A Hurry…

Towards the end of the day last Thursday I found myself in an all to common situation. Having finished work & grocery shopped, I literally had five minutes at home to get changed, feed my dogs & cover the bird cage before heading out to a flex class. Hurriedly I dashed outside to cover the…
