My 2019 calendar photos

Each year I select photos I’ve taken and produce a calendar to give as gifts to family and close friends. Here is this year’s selection.


Ryoj Ikeda’s massive installation Spectra, a feature of the very first Dark Mofo, made a welcome return to Hobart to be permanently situated at the Museum of Old and New Art in Berridale. It was lit to mark the Winter solstice and this photograph is taken from across the River Derwent at Old Beach.


This display of old oars is on a shack at Cockle Creek, at the end of the road as far south as it’s possible to drive within Australia. They are presumably single oars remaining from former pairs, separated by storms, mishaps, age or circumstance.


Lunar New Year celebrations on the lawns outside Parliament House, Hobart. 2018 was the Year of the Dog.

The new viewing deck over the lily pond at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens was installed to mark the Gardens’200th anniversary.


The statue of Sir John Franklin and its surrounding fountain have had a modern makeover, complete with colour-changing LED lighting. Franklin Square, Hobart.

  1. Tasmanian traveller – Bellerive Tasmania Australia – Through travel, I have experienced the eccentricities of people and their environments around the world. At the same time, I love where I live. So, for people who cannot travel to discover the wonders of my home town, this blog is an attempt to introduce its exoticness. My goal was to walk along both sides of Hobart's Derwent River from the mouth to New Norfolk, and to walk on one or alternating sides of the River between New Norfolk and the source of the River at the southern end of Lake St Clair. The walk was undertaken in stages around my other commitments of my life. Almost all stages of the walk connected with Tasmanian public transport - my intentions was to inspire people, who do not have access to a vehicle, to feel they can replicate the walks. This blog reports on each stage in the hope it will encourage people to either follow in my steps or to create their own walking project where-ever they live.
