You may have noticed that the title of this series is "Blue Mountains Odyssey", and that we have not been to the Blue Mountains thus far. Don't worry - tomorrow is the day. When we started planning this trip, it seemed like a good idea to do a round trip and take the opportunity to … Continue reading Blue Mountains Odyssey. Day 3 – Dubbo.
Day 2 we awoke to the sound of rain on the tent. Not a big deal - we're used to camping in all kinds of weather conditions. Can't say we've been impressed by Forbes at all. The waterways look nice from the main thoroughfare, but the free camping is down the stinky end. Smelled a … Continue reading Blue Mountains Odyssey. Day 2 – Forbes to Dubbo.
The day had arrived...... after months of planning, which included buying an off road camper trailer, only to find out our poor old Patrol needed a heart and lung transplant (well - new engine). We had the dilemma of whether or not to invest money in our 10yo beast, or to cut our losses - … Continue reading Blue Mountains Odyssey. Day 1 – Melbourne to Forbes
This blog is my final submission for a unit of study I have been doing online with the University of Tasmania, and is the reason I have grown over the past couple of months from Facebooker, to Blogger and now to Web Designer. The final assessment requires me to submit between 7 & 10 images which … Continue reading The Urban Farm

I myself have a few favourites - one of which is street art. As someone who has studied art on and off since my teens, but sadly … Continue reading Melbourne Street Art
To be honest, I bought the 50mm because it was cheap. I'd recently bought a second hand Nikon D90 to go with a lensbaby lens an online friend had gifted me (but that's another story). I needed another lens for everyday use as the lensbaby is very specialist (google it). I'd heard that the 50mm … Continue reading Backyard scavenger hunt
A little non-descript bridge in north western Victoria. Not on the road to anywhere in particular - well, nowhere too riveting anyway. This is a lovely little free campsite on the backroad between Malmsbury and Castlemaine. Last weekend was a big deal for us - the first time the "Alpha" off road camper trailer (fondly … Continue reading Warburton Bridge
From the very start I fell in love with my little Nikon (1AW1). It did indeed seem like the perfect camera for me. It was summer at the time so it wasn't long before I had it down the beach, testing the water so to speak. DEFINITELY WATERPROOF While I don't exactly spend a lot … Continue reading Evolution
For as long as I can remember I’ve loved taking photos. I think even from the tender age of 10 or so in the early 1970’s, wielding my little Kodak point and shoot with those precious 24 exposures loaded and ready to go, I was fascinated by the thought of capturing a moment – freezing … Continue reading In the beginning
