Wiccan Ways

It’s funny how fate works. One of my HMUA artists, Teighan put out a call for some models and Nikki responded. Now Nikki shot with me about five years ago and then life happened and she stopped modelling, had a family etc. She was thinking about getting back into it, we were looking for a…

Autumn at Cloudehill

I must admit, it’s been a while since I was at Cloudehill Gardens, but it truly is sheer magic in Autumn. Much of Australia is either green all year round, or brown and dry. So to get some bright Autumn colour is something rather exciting and you mostly have to head to higher ground like…

A little rain never hurt anybody

I had a friend come to visit and I was showing her how to use a new lens, I have something similar (Lensbaby Sweet80, she has the 50). The weather was lousy, but we were having so much fun in between the rain showers, laughing at getting wet, capturing raindrops on the treasures in my…
