Share your world – 22nd January 2020

Time for another Share Your World QUESTIONS: Where do you get your news? Mostly from Facebook, sounds bad I know, but if it’s important people are usually talking about it! But then sometimes it can become a bit too much and I need to switch off from that too. I rarely watch the news as it…

Summer Outings – Harmers Haven

We were invited by another photography group for the first sunset shoot of the year at Harmer’s Haven in South Gippsland (far from the fires in East Gippsland). It was a glorious evening, high cloud, warm temps and light winds. It was a pretty sunset amongst the rocks, but not spectacular. Still, it was lovely…

Summer Outings – Blue Lotus Water Gardens

A new year and some trips to old places not seen for a while, and some never before. We escaped the Melbourne heat and smoke (from all the bushfire blowing our way) and went to Yarra Junction in the Yarra Valley to visit the Blue Lotus Water Gardens , such a magical place to visit as…

Spring Outings – Grantville Jetty at sunset

Grantville is about 103km from Melbourne CBD, about 60kms from my house on the way to Kilkunda and Phillip Island. I have not stopped at this jetty before, but have driven through Grantville many times on the way to and from other locations. I had seen some images take by other photographers for this location…

Spring Outings- Cloude Hill Gardens

Some days the weather is just too good to spend inside working, and fresh air and exercise is good for us, so after I had spent most of a recent workday busy on the PC and in the studio, I could not bear it any longer and just had to get out. Moth was home…

Spring Outings – European Christmas Cookie Class

I had been looking for something fun to do with some friends and students for an end of the year get together, a change from the usual Sunday brunch and champagne or a ‘play-date’ in the studio. Something fun and inclusive of photographers and non-photographers alike. I came across this European Christmas Cookie class by…

Spring Outings – Bruno’s Sculpture Gardens

I have been to Bruno’s in Marysville a few times, this is a remarkable attraction to visit. Almost completely devasted in the 2009 bushfires, Bruno has been slowly but surely putting things back how they were. So it was wonderful when we visited here recently with a photography friend to see so many new pieces.…

Spring Outings – Stevenson’s Falls

No outing to Marysville is complete without a visit to the Falls. Sadly due to a malfunctioning camera on the day of this visit, I only have a few smartphone pics. Still, to see it in its full glory, check out this post from a few years ago… Getting to the falls is easy, once…

Spring Outings – Warburton Redwoods

I recently had a photographer friend visit for a few days, we had planned a photoshoot on Sunday with a few models, not too far from me and on Saturday there was originally planned a large Cosplay event at the Warburton Redwoods (I went last year and it was fabulous). So Sue was keen to…

Mondays Musings…

Oh what a wonderfully relaxing weekend. Should be more of them, but then how do the bills get paid? Especially after a busy and stressful weekend the week before. We had quite a few shoots and days out last weekend with a friend coming to stay from out of town. My camera died on me…
