Steam Train

It’s been a while since I’ve been inspired to take out the camera and shoot, and there’s still a lot going on in our lives that’s going to make things challenging for the next few years, but when I found out that they were running a steam train from Brisbane to Longreach, I knew I …

The Return of Inspiration

Update: In the initial rush to get these published I didn’t realise that quite a few of them are of the same lightning strike but from each of the two cameras I was using at the time. The reason I didn’t really pick that up is because obviously over time the time keeping in the …

Dramatic Skies

I went out to try and shoot some storms that were forming late yesterday afternoon, but unfortunately I still wasn’t well enough so I had to come home before I’d even managed to get any shots at all. One the way back, I couldn’t miss stopping to shoot the beautiful cloud formations as they interacted …

Homer

A couple of months ago Stacey and I decided we’d do a photo shoot of her parents’ old dog. He’s really starting to show his age now, and the depressing thing is that it’s only going to be a matter of time until the old guy isn’t with us anymore. Anyway, at the time I …

I Processed Some Old Shots…

So apparently I made a mistake electing to watch the last two Harry Potter movies (for the first time) on a night where I already felt like I was going to have a bad night inside my head. I’ve elaborated before elsewhere (close friends should know where to look) about the issues I’m having dealing …

Unexpected

I was planning on spending last night trying to work out what the hell is going on with WordPress galleries in this theme, but I stepped out my front door to take the dog out and saw this: So… funnily enough, I decided the gallery problem could wait, grabbed the cameras and headed out to …

MOAR BUTTERFLIES!!!!

As I mentioned on Twitter the other day, on Sunday afternoon, with nothing better to do, I took over 715 photos of the butterflies around the flowering Duranta hedge in our front yard. I was pleasantly surprised when I came back inside to find that well over half of them were decent photos, and more …
