I respectfully recognise and value the significance of Australia’s Indigenous cultures and people, especially the Wongi people, the traditional owners of the land on which I live.

St. Barbara’s Festival Parade | Kalgoorlie 2014

My poor, neglected, blog. It’s been seven months since I’ve posted anything. Situations changed, and life got a bit busier, and other things happened.

My most loyal companion of the last fifteen years died, on a cold, Winter’s day in July, and I didn’t feel too inspired or motivated after that.
(I should probably write about him one day, the best dog ever.)

I ended up canning my photo-a-day project, that lost momentum around the time my dog died, until I stopped it completely in October (the blog isn’t updated to this point, but my bulging hard drive tells a different tale, and maybe one day some of these photos might see the light of day).

And somewhere in between the neglected blog, and the photo-a-day blog failure, I made a web page. It’s a work in progress, and a nice distraction.

Anyway, here’s some photos from today’s St. Barbara’s Day parade, and a couple from the Twilight Maker’s Market.




My daughter, Carys, is pretty happy to help me out when I want to try something new, or test some gear.
Testing a new flash got a bit much for her after a while though (understandably).

This was the last frame – the flash was bounced off the ceiling, in a dark room.
