Day +882: Clifton Gardens

Clifton Gardens is located in Sydney’s north, near Taronga Zoo. It’s easily accessible by car, with parking directly at the gardens (for a fee), or in one of the nearby streets (connected by a steep stairway). It’s a great place to bring your family for a picnic, a little dip in the ocean, or for […]

Day +873: Spring Is Here

Spring is here. Flowers are in bloom, from magnolias to blossoms. Signs that warmer (read: hot) weather is just around the corner. First week of September, and Sydney already has bushfires 🙁     Now is the time to come out of hibernation, organise yourself, and then go get it. Every day is a new […]

Day +185: Cooma

This weekend, we went to Cooma, my wife’s hometown. In Winter, Cooma becomes a hub for skiers who pass through on the way to the Snowy Mountains. At other times of the year, it slumbers. The scenery is nice, but there’s not much there. Even the ice cream isn’t that good. This is the garden […]

Day +171: Flowers & bees

I’m trying to get my daughter interested in photography, and so far haven’t had much luck. She’s not so patient right now, and I think she was over-photographed when she was little. But anyway, I’m trying. It’s better than sitting in front of the television or the PlayStation! We took a short walk up our […]

Day +157: Last day in Dubbo

To be honest, there isn’t really all that much to do in Dubbo. There could be- but those things really don’t interest us. It’s a fine country town, but if you knew me, you’d know that I’m a “big smoke” kinda guy. We had a little errand this morning back at the zoo- feed the […]

Day +156: Dubbo Zoo on a bike

Today was day one of two days we plan to spend in Dubbo Zoo (actually, it’s called Western Plains Zoo): Some of the animals in the zoo: It was a good day for photography (just like a real-life Canon advertisement :-))   Our consensus of opinion so far is that: There really aren’t that many […]

Day +136: Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there in Australia and New Zealand; I think that’s the only 2 countries that are celebrating the day today (some have already had it, whilst some Scandinavian countries have theirs in November). It’s been a rainy weekend- just drizzle, so not really enough to ruin any plans. […]

Day +115: Around the neighbourhood

Judging by today, Spring is not too far away. The weather is beginning to get warmer, and the flowers are starting to come out. The beautiful blossoms have been for a little while now (I often wonder how I can’t manage to keep a little tree alive long enough to watch it blossom like that). […]

Day +101: One Hundred Days of Blogging!

Today’s post marks the 101st day that I’ve blogged about my adventures in photography. I’ve really enjoyed blogging, and I hope you enjoy reading my blog too. Today’s headline image is the single-blossoming port wine magnolia amidst the dead of Winter, a sign that new growth is just around the corner. It may even be […]
