  • Encouragement from a reader

    In my last couple of articles I diverted from commenting on current events to bring you some encouragement. I received some encouragement of my own recently with the below email.

  • Iconic Australian Birds

    If I asked you to name an Australian bird what would be your answer? I doubt pigeon would be high on that list. If I asked you to name a bird you didn’t like, you might answer pigeon. If you asked me would I ever include a photograph of a pigeon in my yearly collection I’d probably say no.

  • The signature of God

    How do you reply to someone when you don't know the answer to their question?

  • Koalas are not bears

    Koala’s are marsupials. Bears are not marsupials. They are often called koala bears but that is inaccurate. They do make a great subject to photograph. Some artists say they don’t have favourites when it comes to their own work. I am not one of those artists. I love this photograph that I captured during the last Spring.

  • The power of a single candle.

    I could easily bring you an update on the pastors being arrested in western countries. Or inform you of the churches that are being burnt and vandalized every day. But you can follow those stories yourself and do what you believe you must based on that information. This month I want to bring you some encouragement on how much someone can achieve despite their background or current challenges.

  • Art work – Life Motto

    A picture is worth a thousand words is a common saying when it comes to photography. This photograph contains 44.

  • Three Amigos V John the Baptist

    Are you old enough to remember the film Three Amigos?

  • An award winning selfie

    This selfie was intentional. This selfie was difficult. This selfie was entered into an exhibition alongside the Archibald Prize Exhibition when it toured Ballarat, Victoria. It didn’t sell, it didn’t win a prize.

  • Have we forgotten?

    The only good thing about governments making even more obviously hypocritical rules is that more people become aware how much they have been lied to.

  • Can art save lives?

    I honestly don’t know how I would have survived last year if I was locked down in a city. In the years following sliding down the highway through peak hour traffic photography has become an important part of my life.
