I got a call when Lara was out riding this afternoon. I was expecting that she had a puncture or a mechanical issue with her bike but instead she excitedly told me that there was an echidna ambling around the … Continue reading
It was a perfect night for sitting on the edge of the water with some take away for dinner tonight.
I had been meaning to come up to Narrabeen late at night for a while now. It has council lights that mess with the colours until around 10pm, which is great for swimmers, not so much for photographers. Tonight I … Continue reading

Up at Turimetta Beach this afternoon for a walk around the rock platforms. The waves were very flat so I could carefully go out onto the mossy sections where you would otherwise get washed away on bigger swell days.
I hadn’t been to Clifton Gardens before, it was one of those place I skimmed over when thinking about places to photograph. Today I was there just before 5pm and it was really lovely. It is quiet and calm, beautiful … Continue reading

I went down to the pool near shelly beach to make some sparks this evening. Since I started plaining with sparks a few months ago, I thought these sculptures of sea nymphs, Oceanides, would be a perfect backdrop for a … Continue reading
I have been planning to do a particular star Trails shoot at long reef for months now. I need the sky to be clear of clouds, low tide at a reasonable time of night, little moon and several other things … Continue reading
Red and blue doors, North Head Manly. These are part of the gun installations built to protect Sydney Harbour during the world wars. There are a network of tunnels, lookouts and guns. This one has been left largely as is, … Continue reading
It was a very black and white kind of day today, more rain and greyness. We went up to North Head this afternoon in the drizzle to photograph, this is what Sydney looks like on a wet day. Its nice … Continue reading
Like I am prone to do, I left taking photos till late again today. This usually works well for me, I enjoy night photography and the light has a lovely feel to it at night. Tonight though as we were … Continue reading
I had another early morning this morning. Twice in one week? I know! This time I went to Mona Vale. It was a stunning morning, and as I got there before the first swimmers the pool was like glass. Apart … Continue reading
Fisherman’s Beach at night, looking towards Collaroy.
I couldn’t sleep last night, so after wasting the wee hours of the morning not getting comfortable in bed it was finally early enough to get up. It was a beautiful morning at Mona Vale this morning, and there where … Continue reading

I started this year with a pre-dawn photo so I figured I should finish with a sunset. Brisbane Water, Central Coast. It has been quite a year to say the least. I have made 366 days in a row of … Continue reading
We went down to Maitland Bay for a walk and a swim. It was much hotter than I was expecting, Luckily there was a little cave offering a little shade for a little rest. And for the full Panoramic…
We are back at Avoca at the moment, these photos are taken just near where it all began with this project 363 days ago.
We have gone away for the weekend up to Avoca. I managed to wear myself out this morning so this evening I was hoping to just do a quick star Trail. When I started the sky looked essentially clear of … Continue reading

Merry Christmas to everyone. Thank you for your support this year.
Shelly beach at night. I have also now made my “2012 in photos” Calendar for 2013. I know it is a bit late to give as a christmas present, but there should still be time to order before the new … Continue reading
Dinner… And just for fun I have been Playing with a ‘real’ pinhole camera, one that requires paper and chemicals. I know its not a great photo and I have marks from the developer on it but it is all … Continue reading
These are the from the same bunch of flowers I first photographed on the 3rd of November, and several times since then. They have lasted well, and seem to dry out completely instead of just going bad like flowers can. … Continue reading
I went back down to the blowhole at Warriewood this afternoon and scrambled down the cliff. I didn’t have the place to myself though, the surf was to good for that. These guys would wait for the right wave before … Continue reading
We went down to the beach for takeaway this evening as I was too tired to cook. On the way I took an average photo of a stunning sunset thinking it would be my photo for the day. But on … Continue reading
A refreshingly cool and windy sunset after a hot day,
One of the things I have enjoyed in this project is exploring my local area more. I was in Warriewood today and had no idea that there was a wetland until I looked in my street directory (remember those?) to … Continue reading
I have been meaning to go to the Warriewood blowhole for a while now. I knew roughly where it was but had never been here. I just looked for the biggest sign saying danger, no entry etc and followed the … Continue reading
Super windy today, My tripod almost blew over in the wind. I feel I have been off my game photography wise recently, I keep on going back to the same places as they are easy, but always end up with … Continue reading

Night Scuba Divers, Little Manly.
It was Lara’s birthday today, and I had hoped to do a more special photo for her but just wasn’t feeling up to it. I will have to make next year spectacular instead! Happy Birthday Friend
Coal Loader Waverton. Seeing as it is now December and this project only has a few weeks left, some of you may be wondering what I will be up to next year. A few months back I applied for an … Continue reading
This was all I had in me today, some stolen flowers from outside a neighbours fence and a quick close up…
We had lunch in the city today, there was one of those apartment building / cruise ships docked at circular quay. This is a small section we could see from the ferry, it was another 5 or so stories higher. … Continue reading
It was Lara’s last day at her job today. To celebrate we decided a haircut was in order. This is definitely the shortest it has ever been. I think it looks great! It is great to get the chance of … Continue reading
Boat trails It was too hot to shoot earlier so it was another late one tonight. That was ok though as it was the first night we have had clear ok clouds for weeks. Very refreshing to sit in the … Continue reading
