Bawdy and gaudy, the Moulin Rouge is still a spectacular cabaret.
I will admit that this photo is pretty much the entire reason I diverted to Ireland on our first trip to Europe. Our flight landed in Dublin at 9:30pm, and we were up before dawn to get on a bus to the north coast of Northern Ireland. It was an exhausting experience, but totally worth … Read More
My wife loved the name of this door as soon as we heard about it — well before we actually set eyes on Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris. It definitely lived up to the drama of its name. It’s the central door of the western facade, and depicts the Last Judgement as described in the … Read More
Govett’s Leap is a lookout near Blackheath, NSW. It was not very populated on a Sunday night, but that might have just been the temperature (six degrees before windchill).
Mountains are always great for landscape photography. Up in the Blue Mountains, there are many bushwalks and lookout points that afford spectacular views of the valleys beyond.

I was young, so my memories are quite hazy, but I do remember enjoying our regular drives through the Swiss countryside.

I know that I claim I love taking photos of my home town, and that I’m proud to be Australian, but I don’t actually see much of my own country. I’ve got pretty much the rest of my travel for the year sorted, but I want to see more of Australia next year, so I’m … Read More
On the advice of Timeout Sydney, I convinced a friend to brave the cold and come with me to chase some stars. Unfortunately, I could have I had considered the moon might make things a little difficult, because it was setting quite late, and I had completely not reckoned on the clouds. I feel the latter … Read More
Being an amateur photographer can be contradictory at times. I love taking photos, and I love sharing them, too. It’s part in between that’s the hardest. Since I last posted in February, I have taken 1213 shots, attended two swing dancing events, and travelled to four countries. So where are the photos? Well, two places. Firstly, … Read More
