For the Weekend Wandering post today we are going to look back at a post I did on St Paul’s Beach back in January 2016. I have been getting out a lot this last week, but I’ve been doing a lot of time-lapse photos while I have the equipment from Syrp. It has to go back this week, so I have been wanting to play with it as much as possible. There will be a post on it soon, but for now, let’s take another look back.

A pier at a beach

Sorry, this has to be quick, I don’t know why it is happening, or why it is all happening now, but I seem to be suffering from the worse week. Well it isn’t bad, but I’m so busy. It is good, but doesn’t leave me much time for anything else. I wanted to let you see a photo, though.

Instagram Apologies

Many of you have said how much you have enjoyed the Instagram posts and I’ve enjoyed writing them, but unfortunately this week has got away from me. I haven’t had time to write the next part. So I am begging for forgiveness and promise I will have it next week.

I hope you don’t mind, but I am doing a repost of a blog I did on my old blog. It is hard to think straight right now. A horrible tragic thing happened in Melbourne on Friday and it was all a little too close to home. A man in a car drove through pedestrians in the Bourke Street Mall, a popular shopping street here. Five people died, including a 10 year old girl and a three month old baby boy. Things like this don’t happen in Melbourne, well not often and we are a city in shock. It wasn’t a terrorist attack, just a man with a history of domestic violence and drug and mental health problems. He is in custody now, but still, we are in shock. Can I just add, that I am so glad guns are illegal here, or it could have been a whole lot worse.

These were taken 12 months ago on a trip to Sorrento. The day was hot, but towards sunset it was lovely here. I haven’t been to the beach for so long, I need a trip.

Here is my annual Christmas post, short I hope. As I have in the years that have gone before I am giving you an image. This is my Christmas gift to you. However, this one comes with another something extra, or potentially, the wonderful people at Formatt Hitech have given me one of their kits, the Revised Travel Filter Kit, Elia Locardi Signature Edition, for someone to win. So for your chance to get a special Christmas Gift leave a comment telling me why you would like to win it. The competition will end at the end of this year.

Merry Christmas

Here is the image for you to right click on and save image. Hopefully this works and just note it is a large file.

Instagram this Week

It seems I need to make a confession. I’ve been slack again and not posting. I’ve been out quite a bit and not really knowing what to blog has been a problem. I do have some plans on how I will address this, but will talk about that more on Friday.

Today I would just like to show you the photos that I have had up on Instagram this week. I need to work on Monochrome Madness next.

It is all happening around here at the moment, problems with taps breaking and such, but thought I would stop briefly to let you see the photos I’ve had published on Instagram this week, but first I’ve had an article published about the Samyang Fisheye.

The article is on Digital Photography School and if you click the title it will take you to it.

Overview of the Samyang 12mm F2.8 ED AS NCS Fisheye Lens

For those wishing to know more about the fisheye lens.

Here are the images I’ve had up on Instagram this week.

It has been a busy time trying to get the magazine out for people ready to read, but it was done and now I can breath a little before I have to get on with other things. Don’t forget to buy your copy.

Book – The Six Seasons of My Backyard

Book on Banyule Flats

It is now time to get stuck into the book and get it finished. I have everything, pretty much that I need now, so one final push and it should be ready for publication.

It has been a long road, but so worth it, and quite an interesting experience. I do hope those waiting for it won’t mind waiting just a little longer.


I wanted to mention this again, I’ve been working on it a lot more. There are a couple of different options for those that would like a chance to be mentored by me. The page I have set up has a description of what mentoring is for those of you that are unsure.

I’ve had quite a few people wanting to do one on one’s with me, really, they just want to spend time with me and talk, so I thought maybe others would like that opportunity.

With mentoring I critique photos and help you work out what direction you want to go. You can ask me as many questions as you have over the month, and for some, the opportunity to skype with me and just talk.

When I was at University doing my fine arts degree we would have private tutorials with lecturers, also artists who would advice and guide us, and mentoring does much the same.

If you would like to be mentored by me, then go to this link.


As I said a couple of weeks again, I am going to start moving photos onto this blog, so I have some photos taken in 2014 from Sorrento.  I hope you either enjoy them for the first time, or enjoy seeing them again.
