Many years ago, when I first got back into photography and possibly even when I first started blogging, I visited Kilcunda Beach and a few other beaches along this stretch of the coast, I was still learning my craft and if I wrote a blog post, I cannot seem to find it.  Anyway, we were…

Yes, you read correctly Zombies!!! Let’s jump back a few months…I was contacted about possibly doing some behind the scenes photography and possibly some artwork for a small budget Indie Film, about a Zombie Apocolypse…yes another one (these films and TV shows seem to be all the rage). I must admit I did think about…

Weekend Wanderings – Glass House Mountains

Technically the title is incorrect it was a Thursday and not a weekend, it was not really a long holiday as such either, 3 days is more like a long weekend, so I will stick with Weekend Wanderings. We had been visiting with my daughter for a few days in Brisbane, this was our last…
