Happy 90th Birthday Vegemite

This is my Vegemite Art masterpiece in honour of Australia’s much loved spread – Vegemite, which turns 90 year-old this month. Vegemite is used in cooking, it’s spread in toast in the morning and washed down with a cup of tea or coffee. Some people like Vegemite thickly spread, some just like a smidgeon. Whatever way it is, Vegemite puts a rose on every cheek. My painting is up for sale.DSC_0205

TIckets Please

The secretive practice runs of the billion-dollar Gold Coast Queensland, Australia Light Rail project are well underway at times taking many locals and tourists by surprise. I only managed to photograph this practice run just because I was in the area at the time.  And I nearly got run over. When completed, the Light Rail will run from the Griffith University Campus at Parkwood to Broadbeach – a major tourist area. This image shows trams in Queen Street. I shot this image with a Nikon D80 with 200mm lens.DSC_0545

Sand Dune Fertilising

ABOUT THIS IMAGE: In the late 1970s the Gold Coast City Council (Queensland, Australia) made a full on raid on sand dunes along the 42 kilometre coastline to try and establish thick new growth hoping that it would support the dunes and help to stop sand erosion. It was amazing to see these planes shoot the breeze, wondering if they would crash. None did. I SHOT this impressive image for a newspaper with a Nikon 200mm zoom lens).  I have alway used a Nikon.Surfers Paradise crop dusting


HOW I SHOT THIS IMAGE: I was visiting the Southport Lawn Cemetery on the Gold Coast Queensland , Australia when I noticed this dear little lady sitting alone in the heat of the day. It was a poignant moment. I watched for a while and decided it was too beautiful not to take a photograph. I only shot two frames and left her in peace. (I was used a Nikon D80 with a 200mm).DSC_0983
