Bright to Mt Buffalo, Victoria

Spent some time wandering Bright. We were surprised to encounter a night market where we enjoyed wandering the stalls.

The next day we explored Mr Buffalo. The weather changed as we rose from a lovely summer day to a cloudy, then rainy and cool day at the top of the mountain. What most impressed me were the cyclists. Now that is stamina.

Bright, Victoria

We took a road trip to Bright a little while ago.

We stopped in Benalla for a pit stop but still arrived too early for our accommodation and so had to drive the Tawonga Gap. I can recommend the drive – it is great fun!

Brighton Bathing Boxes, Melbourne

Some photos from the cutting room floor. Earlier in summer I had a great visit to the Brighton Bathing Boxes. I would have liked to capture all of the bathing boxes in their technicolour glory, but with the summer sun beating down I had to limit myself to the occasional shot in between the refreshing water. I can highly recommend a visit at anytime but if you go in summer, just make sure you wear some thongs to protect your feet from the hot sand!

It takes just one click

This is where it begins

It takes just one click to freeze time and catch it in a frame. This is no grand revelation in a digital age. We have all felt the urge to capture a moment, lifted our handy device (camera or phone) and clicked. The time from noticing to clicking can elapse in seconds. So no surprises there. And yet.

More often than not the image doesn’t quite capture the moment we saw in our mind’s eye. This is both my frustration and my great joy with photography. No matter how close I feel I came to freezing time, to capturing the moment and the emotion, something will be different for you. You will filter my image through a different eye, a different frame.

It is rare for the rain to make it into this window.

So this will be a chronicle of what I see in my world. It is my attempt to climb out and really see, and appreciate my surroundings. And hopefully to hear what your impressions are. We all have to start somewhere, let’s start here.
