Down Under

I’ve been in Perth for a couple of weeks now, just chilling with Jay and the girls. Its been fun, sunny and warm, lots of time to just do normal things, plus as Jay has a break between courses and the girls are at school, we have time to explore a bit, have lazy coffee mornings on the beach front and generally relax.

We’ve been to Serpentine to see the dam and the falls, to Freo for lunch, to the cinema and wandered up a disused railway line to take photos. Had lots of time to play through the viewfinder with the box brownie too ๐Ÿ™‚

Jay’s been doing her 52 weeks shots, getting all creative and I’ve been making tea (you can take the girl out of Yorkshire..) and urban acid-ing every photo in sight.

news wise, I got the pre-grant notice of my visa this week, so I’ll have that in about 10 days, and I applied for a few jobs, spoke to an agency about one in particular (looks very promising) and got info about opening bank accounts. I’ll only have 8 or 9 weeks before I’m out here for good ๐Ÿ™‚


Weekly Challange


humm, I have a couple of ideas, trouble is, one of them requires getting up before the sun comes up, and at this time of the year, thats around 3:30am..

Actually, having looked outside into the sunny (about bloody time too) garden, I can see an opportunity for a 3rd shot..

funny how..

some pictures you take get other people really interested. The last serious photos I took were of a cornfield in the evening (lack of, as it turned out) sunshine.

I wasnt that impressed, but played with the processing and uploaded them anyway. I think all three that made it are in my top 10 most interesting and 2 have made it to explore..

lazy lazy

I’ve been run off my feet at work these last 2 or 3 weeks, back to back meetings, proposals, demos, traning etc etc, which means I havent really had the chance to take any pictures lately.

I’ve had the camera in my bag, but just haven’t seen anything to shoot, or more accurately, haven’t had the time or inclination I’ve been so tired. Ah well.

So I did some self portraits, such as..

you got your hair pulled back and wayfarer’s on


Oh, Mr Grumpy

funny how I can wake up as a marde arse, but it wears off as the day goes on..

I feel fine now ๐Ÿ™‚

perhaps its cos the sun came out and I had a yummy lunch?
perhaps its cos I got to speak to Jay and she makes me feel better?
perhaps its cos I can get some solid work done today?

I think I’ll come into London again tomorrow

In other news, its nearly Easter hols ๐Ÿ™‚

up early

at 3am, no less ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

but, to ease the pain I’m suffering, you can laugh at this ๐Ÿ™‚
