Morning Glory

A few weeks ago, Wired magazine online featured a post by Betsy Mason detailing some weird-ass clouds that appear on my home soil here in Australia. The photo (above) was captured by photographer Mick Petroff near the Gulf of Carpenteria. These strange, tubular clouds can grow to be 600 miles long…

Misty Mountain Morning….

It’s been a long time inbetween photo collection posts for me – it’s actually been a while since I did a post of any kind! Therefore, this morning I decided to rug up and venture out into the country cold and capture some shots of the morning mist. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I enjoyed my morning…

Bird Life (Part 2)

Bird Life (Part 2) is some more footage I shot of different Aussie birds flying, eating and doing their birdy thing in my garden and surrounds, with music by Lifetime Damage…

Bird Life

Birds. What a life. Oh, to have that kind of freedom. Here’s some footage I shot of different Aussie birds flying, eating and doing their birdy thing in my garden and surrounds…

Golden Oldies…

This weeks camera critter post is a selection of critter photos taken on various occasions – before digital cameras. On each occasion, I had to capture what I saw with one frame of film… the cows took off on a stampede; the spider ran into the darkness; and the pelicans and gulls dispersed incredibly quickly…

Meet the Neighbours…

With all the trees that surround us, we hear these neighbours more than we see them. This week when we saw they were up at the fence, Dave & I took the opportunity to take some photos. They were more than happy to smile for the camera…

I Am The Lizard King!

So there he was. Basking in the sunlight, a typical garden skink, no more than twenty centimetres in length. I ran inside to get the camera and when I got back to the garden, he hadn’t moved. But I only had one chance to take a shot – as soon as the shutter stirred the little lizard scurried away into the bushes…

Fare ye well, young Frederick…

For the last three months, a stray cat has been loitering around the studio. Being out in a rural area, I see stray cats from time to time, mostly feral and scavenging for food. But this little guy, affectionately named “Fred” (or “Freddy” or “Frederick” or “Federico” – however the mood struck me), was recognisably different from the rest. He didn’t seem as mangy as the standard feral and my suspicion was that he was dumped out here as a young kitten and forced to fend for himself…

Perfect Profile…

You probably have all read about it yourself, but for those who don’t know what I’m refering to… well, Facebook changed their terms of service (TOS) without notifying any of it’s existing users. This presented a number of issues that any user – or potential user – should and did question. The first of which, in order to change the terms, they are required to contact all existing users and notify them of the change. A user must then agree to the new TOS. They failed to do this…
