so, I finally moved from England to Australia and am now settled in Perth.

Its been a mad month, with leaving my job, packing up and shipping my stuff, moving back with my parents for a couple of weeks and generally having as much fun with my kids as I could fit in.

And then I flew out..

Been here for just over 2 weeks now and I think I have most things under control – I even had a preliminary job offer today, which is pretty cool ๐Ÿ˜€ I should hear back next week with the details and salary and stuff, but its looking pretty promising I have to say. I also have an opportunity with my old company, Oracle, so we’ll see where that goes in the coming days.

I’m going to enjoy my last week of “freedom” with some photo expeditions (well, probably just cafe hangouts and people shots) and if the weather allows, some sitting on the beach – its not been warm enough yet really to do that. Having said that, its a good deal warmer than when I went to Camber Sands with Ella at the end of August.

Watch this space for some more news ๐Ÿ™‚



back in London, meeting for coffee before a customer meeting in a rainy Holborn.

I wish I had more time to wander about taking photos, but by the time I’m done working, I’m really too tired to stay out for a few hours..

ah well

songs to dance to

well, I dont care if it’s gay disco, I love it! :))

evening ramble

So I wandered off to the Southbank on Monday after work – it was a scorcher of a day, so I left it till the evening before setting out. Walked from Embankment, over Hungerford bridge and strolled slowly down southbank till I got to the Millennium Bridge, taking loads of photos along the way.

Was a fantastic evening and I got some good photos, even if I do say so myself ๐Ÿ™‚

my faves

was a long day, and I didn’t get home until gone 10, but it was so worth it


Skanky girl #1: I’m never wearing miniskirts again!
Skanky girl #2: Why is that?
Skanky girl #1: Well, every time I’m dancing in one, someone tries to sodomize me.
Skanky girl #2: Oh, I hate that–it’s so rude.

found at this wonderful site



4 weeks left in this house, then just under 2 at my parents and then I’m offski.

4 weeks sounds like a lot. Its not. Not when you have to relocate everything, work a job, pack, sort, clean up, do taxes, get a job and life a normal life.


stressing? nah


wheat fields

went off to the fields again last night to see what the light was doing – pleased to see the previously green wheat field is now a lovely golden brown

so, with the 18-200 again, heres a nice and simple landscape – small aperture for depth of field and focussed about 1/3 the way in. Could do better with the front to back sharpness I think, but I liked it
