A look back on the last 12 months

It really is feeling that way right now. We are, once again, in lockdown. No surprise really and I think I’m feeling a lot better about it than I did the last one. Mainly, I suspect because we have all been waiting for it.

It has been a while and I thought I was getting back into everything again, but then we went into lockdown again. I don’t know what it was about this last one, but it really hit me harder than any of the others we have had.

Lockdown Woes

It really has been a bit like that. I’ve heard it so many times recently from others that for some reason this last one was harder. Perhaps the novelty of them is wearing off.

Now many other capital cities are going into lockdown again right now and we have to wonder how long it will be before it is us, yet again. It is getting a little boring, for want of a better word.

Vaccinations are around, but it seems our Federal Government just isn’t up the task to get us vaccinated. Here we are with only a small percentage of the population vaccinated. We have been trying to get it, but we can’t. It amazes me how other countries are managing, but not us.

They haven’t been up to it for anything in a couple of years. There has been one disaster after another and they have consistently let the people of this country down. Apparently, we aren’t bribing them enough. Maybe I shouldn’t say that, but history seems to indicate if you want them to do anything you need to make sure you have the money to make “donations”. It is a sad reflection of the world we are living in.

I really do think we are seeing the end of democracy as it is meant to be. We seem to be heading into a strange sort of democratic totalitarianism. We just have to decide which dictator we want.

Anyway, let’s talk about something nicer.

Photography Trips

While in lockdown I obviously couldn’t get out, but I did do some trips before and I’ve been putting up the videos of those trips on my YouTube Channel.

I spent a wonderful afternoon out with my friend Chris when we went to Lake Learmonth to check out the area.

We explored the dry lake, an old house before taking a look at the wind turbines around there. Then with some daylight hours left Christ thought we should explore Lake Burrumbeet, I think it was called.

Learmonth Videos

I am going to put a couple of links to the videos below and show you a few of the photos, though you can see a lot more on the videos.

I know not everyone likes to watch the videos, but I do love doing them and showing where I’ve been. They give me a whole new reason to get out really.

So don’t forget to subscribe to the channel.

We do live in a beautiful part of the world and I love sharing it with you all.

I hope you enjoy them.

So now some photos. Take care everyone.


It kinda feels like that. I’ve been going out and taking photos, well I was before this short lockdown. I’m sure once it’s over I will be again as well. However, I am also trying to get back into processing my photos again.

So it would seem. Melbourne has had yet another outbreak of Coronavirus and because it is a very virulent strain, apparently, they have put us back into lockdown.
