Canal daze

Photographically, my efforts have been limited to observing life on and around the canal at the back door of my abode, where I sit on the deck for hours reading and just watching the world go by.

Eumundi Markets

Should your chakras need balancing, your aura need alignment, your ears require candling, your palms reading or if the soles of your feet would benefit from a henna tattoo, this is definitely the place to be.

Noosa Coastal Track

Good to my promise (at least the one I made to myself), I rose bright and early on Friday morning, my second in Noosa, and headed off to tackle the coastal walking track around the headland through Noosa National Park.

Welcome to Noosa

I’ve arranged a house swap. In return for use of my little place in New Town, I have access to a lovely waterfront unit in a complex on a canal in Noosaville, the civilised end of town from the over-touristed Noosa Heads, for a couple of weeks. I arrived on Boxing Day after dark, thanks…

A Christmas gift for you…

It’s Christmas, and here is a little gift from me and Tracey the Tasmanian Devil – our Christmas YouTube playlist.

MACq01 Walking Tour

Old school toys and a touch of alchemy make storytelling the star of Tasmanian tourism.

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.

Open House Hobart 2018

Thanks to the team at Open House Hobart for another great weekend of privileged access and peeks behind doors that are normally closed.

Dark Mofo 2018 – Spectra Returns

A highlight of this year’s Dark Mofo was the return of Ryoji Ikeda’s 15km tall beam of light and sound installation Spectra to town, on a permanent basis, having been purchased by David Walsh. Spectra won the affection of Hobart’s residents during the first Dark Mofo back in 2013, when it graced the Cenotaph.

A day on the upper East Coast

I had a rare opportunity today to spend some time on the East Coast between Bicheno and Binalong Bay on the Bay of Fires. Usually if I’m up this way, I’m just passing through, but today I had time to take my time, get out the camera and generally take the path less travelled.
