  • Sydney to Darwin

    Sydney to Darwin

    Sometimes when I’ve come to Darwin the plane has been almost empty. In 2010, for example, I travelled via Cairns, which involved a six-hour stop-over. Thirteen hours after leaving Sydney, I finally arrived. On the connection between Cairns and Darwin there were, maybe, a dozen people only on the plane.… Read the rest “Sydney to Darwin”

    I can’t decide if I was more angry or more sad (I was both), as a few of the speakers at a talk I attended this morning spoke about “faking disability”. Something I didn’t know about until this morning’s talk, was that if you go through some “stock photograph” libraries, you can actually find groups of models alternating between standing up and being seated in a wheelchair.… Read the rest “Stock Photographs”

  • Photographs of Snow and Ice

    Photographs of Snow and Ice

    In the midst of a warm summer in Sydney, I’ve been watching friends post photographs of snow in Europe. Their photographs have inspired me to go looking for photographs from the past where I’ve experienced snow myself (which I love) taken in Sweden and Iceland.

  • Black and White

    Black and White

    I’ve been feeling slightly restless in the last few days, and so have been wandering a fair bit, taking a few photographs here and there, a few of which looked better in black and white than colour, so I thought I’d share them. Nothing special, all on my camera phone, with a black and white filter.… Read the rest “Black and White”

    Some recent photographs.

    My cousin recently celebrated her 45th wedding anniversary and sent me this shot, taken in Casino, NSW in 1973 featuring mum, dad, and an awesome seven year old hipster.

    Spotted these two on the way home from work. Can't decide if their human was in at the barber or the pub next door. Awfully cute.

    Though it can sometimes be cold, wet and miserable in Sydney during winter, it can also be totally awesome. And yesterday, in the midst of our visit to the NAIDOC Week Arts Festival, I took a brief walk out in the sunshine. I sat down, I closed my eyes, and just enjoyed the awesomeness of a clear winter day.… Read the rest “Recent Views”

    Theatre and Art

    The last few days have been “action-packed”. As well as work during the day, I’ve had quite a few social activities this week. Trivia night on Wednesday. Thursday night going to see a play, part of Late Night Library at Surry Hills Library. And then yesterday afternoon/last night, we popped in to 4A Gallery, and went to the annual fundraiser at the Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative.
