Bugs in Paradise !   1 comment

I spent the last few days out at Mount Barney staying at the lakeside cottage at Barney Creek Vineyard Cottages

It was a few days in paradise – lots of things to see and do – with Macro being my favourite Photography currently – thought I would start with some of the bugs I got there.

Macro – spiders and flys on the verandah   1 comment

Early last Sunday morning, I went for a walk in the garden and surrounding yard and was not finding much at all to photograph – so walking back to come inside along the verandah, on the post at the top of the stairs I see a little spider and while I am photographing him – a fly lands as well.

First up two photos of Jumping Spiders with a little flying any as prey.

History Alive 2013 – Napoleonics   Leave a comment

Last weekend, I managed to get to my favourite event. History Alive 2013

I am always thankful when I go there to the organisers and re-enactors who put so much effort into organising the event and make it a great adventure, this year I only got to go on the Sunday, next year will try and go both days.

My favourite period is Napoleonic and will start with a few photos of them.

Possibly my favourite photo from the day is Michelle Spano as a French Cavalry.

Brisbane River Walks   Leave a comment

I am lucky to live in walking distance of the Brisbane River and try and go for regular morning walks down there.

This is another couple of random photos, I took on a walk earlier in the year (still going through older photos).

Kookaburras – all washed up   2 comments

A couple of months ago (yes, still going through old photos) we visited friends down the Gold Coast for an afternoon Barbecue.

While we were there some Kookaburras came around for their afternoon feed – it was raining so they were looking pretty washed up.
