Sailing home

While I was slaving away at my desk recently my partner was lucky enough to be sailing down the coast, delivering a yacht from Coffs Harbour to Sydney. I wish I had been on board too.

Hello summer, where’s the sun?

It was hot and humid in Sydney overnight so I woke up feeling murky and grey and nothing was in focus. A bit like these pictures from my morning swim. But it was beautiful none-the-less and I even got to say hello to a ray.

I love how small waves look big when you get down low with a wide angle

Ok that’s enough. Back to dry land for coffee.

iPhone photography

There are times when you just can’t be bothered to lug your camera gear around. And you don’t always need to with most phone cameras these days. It’s hard to see what you’re shooting sometimes, but here’s a few shots, mostly taken around Sydney, that have somehow turned out okay.

(Clockwise from top left) Cliff near North Head, Sydney; Natimuk Lake (Wimmera, Victoria) wet for the first time in a decade; kite-surfer off Manly Beach; safely anchored in Pittwater, NSW; Sydney Opera House; anchored in Sugarloaf Bay, Sydney; Ropes on the Manly Ferry; Noah’s Ark at Biennale, Cockatoo Island, Sydney; (centre) Freshwater beach closed in rough surf.

Sculpture by the Sea 2012

It’s that time of year again: Sculpture by the Sea along the Bondi Beach to Tamarama coastal walk. It’s a great opportunity for amateur photographers and we were out in force this morning. I’m working on taking shots that don’t need to be cropped or photoshopped. (Because that’s cheating, right?)
