Basking in Blue

Blue MountainsMy throat’s sore. I’m exhausted. And I dealt with too many perturbed people today, but everyone loves looking at mountains.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

June was Vivid

As promised, here are a few more of my favourite shots from the Vivid Sydney light festival last month!

Vivid Sydney

The festival took place along the shorelines of the city. It was a beautiful night filled with lights that are becoming quite famous here. Learn more here (http://www.vividsydney.com/).

The buildings, structures and sculptures along the Sydney Harbour waterfront were lit to please. And they did.

Fortunately for you, you know someone who lives here and would LOVE to show you some of the photos she took!

Nothing short of spectacular.

Twelve Kangaroos

Mountains, man. They’re pretty sweet.

No, in all honesty, I do love the mountains. There’s a calmness that comes with living near them. These few photos (more to come), were taken in a recent trip up and past the Blue Mountains. You can see them in the distance.

This dirt road leads to the guest house where my extended family and I stayed for a long weekend. Our first trip down this dirt road was nearly at midnight. We’d been warned to keep our pace slow and caution–wildlife, kangaroos, cows, hares and more had been seen traversing throughout the evening. While the concept thrilled me, my other half just laughed at my excitement. The drive was anti-climactic however. NOT A DAMN THING. And I love kangaroos. You can imagine my disappointment.  Upon arrival, I (sort of jokingly) tell the group that I swear there must only be a dozen or so roos in the entire freaking country and I bet some bloke in a van just drives them around, dropping them off here and there, then picking them up again. For some reason, they found this (and me) hysterical. We ended up seeing plenty of critters the next day… Not more than 12 though.

It was a beautiful trip. And wine filled. Not much beats family, friends, vineyards and birthday parties!

Thinking outside the box/city

A colleague of mine jokingly asked the other day if I’d mind taking photos of my photography that is currently on display in an exhibition down the street from our office. I looked at him, smiled and laughed.

In retrospect, I thought my family, friends, fans and followers outside of Sydney might enjoy a peak at what is up in that gallery right now.
