winter colouring

It’s that time of year again, when the ratio of tripod to tourist reaches an all-year high. Walking slows to mooching and no-one is actually looking at where they are going, rather to… Continue reading

moving home

So I left yesterday, graduated of sorts, moved home of a kind. What has been my constant over the last four years now becomes a beautiful backdrop to a stunning chapter that has… Continue reading

Because I love the shapes in their simplicity:

appreciation

Yesterday, I travelled on the Manly ferry, a brief interlude in a hectic week, a chance to try to assimilate the level of change that’s set in. And as I sat, up and… Continue reading

all creatures great and small

A little compilation of not-so perfect shots, but they make me smile:

streaky sunset

From the train, I looked beyond the shoulders of commuters and gazed out of the window. The view is always breathtaking, the sails of the Opera House morphing gently under the evening light.… Continue reading

autumn sun

Sometimes it’s good to strip life back to the basics: feel the sun on your back, feel the salt air freshen it all up, let the salt water wash away the grumbles and… Continue reading

be soft

Taken with slow shutter and, clearly, no tripod yesterday, but I still love the shapes and colours. Will be back to mini collections soon, just not quite back in the swing of things… Continue reading

in the market

There’s a fresh food market not far from home and it’s the closest I’ll get to Borough Market out here. I wandered, surrounded by sustenance at its most beautiful, and I smiled. I… Continue reading

From here, each morning, I keep perspective. That work is just work, that every day I travel into a new day, environment and opportunity. From here, I remember the world is a gorgeous… Continue reading

storm swell

Not the best photography I’ve ever posted but I had to run back for my phone before the racing clouds ran past too fast. A few hours ago, I was lolling around in… Continue reading

succulence

It’s been busy, busy, busy and it means that I’ve stopped finding the little things to photograph each day. A shame, but even if I don’t grab a photo of something, I’m having… Continue reading

architecture texture

You’ll notice, I’m sure, I love lines and shapes. It’s what I was taught to look out for for photographs as a young ‘un, and I don’t think I could see differently now… Continue reading

bird on a wire

I forgot that I had these tucked away on my camera roll, but here they are to share now. I introduce to you the sulphur-crested cockatoo, stunning to look at, affronting to hear.… Continue reading
