Autumn Outings – Redwoods of Fantasy

In Warburton we have some Ancient Redwood Forests, which feel very mystical, I am totally unsure as to what powers if any, they truly hold, but it ‘feels’ very old and mystical amongst the trees. People often build giant ‘nests’ from fallen boughs. I cannot help but feel a sense of wonder as I stand…

Autumn Outings – Barbie’s Last Crush

Somedays the universe throws something a little strange your way, years ago I would have laughed it off as something silly and said pass, these days I find we often have the most fun at these ‘silly’ opportunities…so when Moth and I were invited to watch a Pink ‘Barbie’ car get crushed by a Centurion…

Autumn Outings – Splash Workshop

One of my photography groups often runs creative workshops, where we get to hang out, play around and enjoy concepts we may not have tried before. Earlier in the year we did Balloon Bursting, and over the years we have done a lot, they are always fun and quite often messy, so it’s great I am…

Autumn Outings – The Ada Tree

Trying to get to the Ada Tree is a lesson in miscommunication, according to various sources it is in Noojee, Warburton, Neerim and Baw Baw, it’s actually in between pretty much all of them in the middle of nowhere, GPS is pretty useless and you need to follow the signs, marked at just far enough…

Autumn Outings – Noojee Trestle Bridge

I have visited Noojee a few times, especially lately, we stopped in there to photograph the train at the History Centre a few weeks back.
