Westgate Park, Port Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
I believe Westgate Park celebrated its 30th birthday today. Congratulations! It really is a wonderful place so near to the Melbourne CBD.
Here are some quick scans of pics from the 90s. Gee, I think my camera gear has come a long way. I have heaps more photos from Port Melbourne but where they are and how much time to scan them is a wonder.
Hyoko, Niigata, Japan
November 22, 2015
Here are some pics of a couple of Northern Goshawks stirring up the ducks at the back of Hyoko yesterday. Actually I really messed up with many out of focus shots. The focus either just caught the background or the grass.
I might make it a goal to get better shots through the winter.
I'm very excited to announce my new book published by Blurb. It's called "November in Niigata" You can see a link to it above or you can click: November in Niigata
In November, I imagine the streets of my hometown Toowoomba lined with beautiful blooming Jacaranda trees, but Niigata is a very different story. Within weeks the trees go from green, to yellow and red, then completely bare. I always enjoy taking a walk and beholding the leaves whether on the trees or at my feet. This book is a collection of four years of photographs taken at just a few wonderful places in Niigata. There are just a few words as I just want to show the sights.
At this time, I am yet to see the printed copy and am waiting for my own orders to arrive. I will let you know if I'm happy with the results when they arrive.
I'm very grateful to Blurb for allowing me such a great resource and I've designed the book to be printed in a large format with their highest quality photo paper. I admit it's a tad expensive but I trust we get what we pay for.
I have used three different camera bodies and several high-end lenses and am hoping it will best speak for itself.
