By laying on my back, I photographed this exquisite Agapanthus (Aggy) in the seaside resort of Southport Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. The Aggy grows in the front or back yard of millions of Australian homes. Much loved by all. Nikon D80 – 17-270mm.
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.
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.
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.
HOW I SHOT THIS: Was at a shopping centre on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. Was on the way outside to the car and this caught my eye. I waited for what I thought was the right moment and keep my finger on the shutter release. Click, click… I was happy with what I got. It was all over in a few minutes. (Nikon D80 – 50mm).
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).
