And I’m back!
Wow, this year flying by and I’ve been struggling to keep up. I am so happy I have managed to find the time to post this and I hope to keep posting more little expeditions for the rest of the year :)
Here are the first of many shots from a wee trip to ‘Nam in March this year. Enjoy!

As we prepare to wrap up another year, I wanted to share with you my favourite shots from 2012. These are 10 of the most fun, interesting, meaningful or beautiful experiences/moments I encountered this year. In no particular order (as choosing 10 was hard enough!)…
This one was fun, but to most probably not. I got up at 4:30AM, jumped on my bike and headed for Greenpoint in Brooklyn. It was a little eerie riding alone at that hour of the morning in the cold, dark and misty rain. At one point I questioned what I was possibly thinking, but kept going anyway. It was totally worth the early rise and the freezing cold. I loved the images I got. The water, mist, pre-dawn light, everything was perfect. Putting this one in the beautiful category too.

Wishing everyone a beautiful Christmas filled with good food, family, friends, love and lots of laughs! Here are a few photos of Melbourne City Square, otherwise known as Christmas Square.

The city is buzzing with all the craziness that comes with Christmas. Decorations and lights are in abundance. My favourite display this year is the Town Hall which is lit up each night from about 9PM and it’s a spectacular show. If you haven’t had a chance to get down there yet you still have a couple of days left.

I used to pass this fountain on St Kilda Rd in Melbourne everyday. I often thought about shooting it, and often wondered how. Well, here are the results…
My posts have been quiet of late, mainly because I gave my website a facelift and finished a new body of work. Today’s post is a snap from my new series, I Know You Don’t Watch Me Walk Away, which can be found here.
Hopefully my Little Expeditions will be more frequent as we round up the year. Summer feels like it is finally here and Christmas lights are starting to appear. Stay tuned…

Looking for a year of art for your wall, or a beautiful gift for someone? This wall calendar is jumbo size at 11.7″ x 16.5″, printed on satin art paper (200gsm) and has a tough wire binding.
Beneath the Surface is a series of pictures I shot in New York. I wanted to show a side of New York City that is not often seen or exposed. To me, the city hides behind a veil, just like the people that call it home. These images depict the emotions swirling beneath the surface.

This past weekend I made a trip home. As we say in Australia, I grew up in the bush (that’s countryside for all of you non-Aussies)! It’s great to get out of the city and head home where there are wide open spaces and lush green nature as far as the eye can see. I loved growing up in the bush. There was always a new adventure around the next corner, a tree to climb (and get stuck up as I did oh so many times) and fun to be had. My Mum has filled her garden with lots of native Australian plants and it was bursting with colour on the weekend. Here are a few snaps from my families backyard…

Today was a beautiful sunny day and a reminder summer isn’t too far away at all. I jumped on my bike and hit the Main Yarra Trail which follows the Yarra River around the outskirts of the city. The environment changes frequently and it’s a beautiful ride, walk or jog.

A warm spring day, that would have been more lovely had there not been so much pollen flying around chocking everyone up. The sunset was pretty impressive, I rushed to capture the last of the glowing colours.

After back-to-back winters, I am loving the warm spring we are having here in Melbourne. Here are a few snaps from one of the beautiful gardens you can find in the city.
I chose the windiest morning to head down to St Kilda beach to shoot these pictures. My tripod was blown over several times and I came home trying to remove the tiny sand particles from my mouth. It was all worth it though and I’m happy with the results. Enjoy!
A winters trip to the Cloisters in New York City was a journey all the way up to 191 Street subway station. I loved the texture of the windows at the station and the wintery view.
This is going way back in my archives to when I was a spring chicken and new to travel. Vietnam was one of the first countries I ever visited. And Sapa, a small village in the north of the country is still my favourite place in the world. This remote little mountainous pocket is a beauty and well worth the trip to get there.

Open House Melbourne 2012 has just wrapped up for the weekend. There were 100 buildings open to the public around the city, I managed to get around to 6 of those… the queues were a killer! But worth it, as I loved every building I saw. Today I’m giving you a peek at The Block Arcade. This building is dripping in beauty, from the structure to the shops that inhabit it. The longest standing resident is the Hopetoun Tea Rooms, serving high tea daily. Looking at their cake selection explains why there is always a queue to get in. The building was constructed during 1892 -1893.
