Location: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

I am mother to two young adults in their mid to late 20's. I work in the medical field as an admin officer/personal assistant. I look forward to the day when I can spend heaps more time taking and making photographs. However, for now, the bills have to be paid. I married a jazz musician many, many years ago. My adopted home is Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. I am originally from North Queensland... a tropical place!

It's been a while since I've posted, mainly because of extreme work loads which leave a body totally exhausted. The photo today is of my daughter's Doc Martin boots which I put out on the hard rubbish collection and someone decided to 'rescue' them, tie the laces together and throw them in the air and over a power line in the street. This ended up being a good thing because my daughter did not want them thrown out. After the boots had hung on the line for a week or two, I talked my son into getting the ladder out and, with the help of a broom, get the boots down. Now I only have the sandshoes to look at every time I leave the house or return... another pair of shoes which met the same fate as the Docs except no-one rescued them!

Well I finally got my camera back from Canon ... fixed ... although for a few moments I thought I'd have to take it back again but it sorted itself out okay. I looked out my window late yesterday afternoon and, as you can see from these images, I had the perfect opportunity to try it out. The first photo was taken at 7:39:27, the second at 7:40:42 and the last one at 7:45:29. Watching the change in the sky in such a short time was wonderful. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Birds today. This pesky seagull interrupted my picnic lunch with my daughter when we were in Anglesea. He/she takes a nice picture though!

I can't believe I haven't posted this image before today. This is a photo of one of my favourite beaches on the Great Ocean Road, south of Anglesea. This is Urquarts Bluff. There are amenities, a car park and, sometimes, lifesavers. I have been taking my kids to this beach for many years and we all love it and have had many adventures here.

When my daughter and I went to Anglesea, I was up early to photograph the sunrise. This shot of the Anglesea cliffs is taken from the boat ramp at the camping park. The seagulls were having a feast on flying black bugs. These bugs made it hard to take photos and they could certainly be felt when they hit the face. However watching the seagulls feed was a sight to remember.

It's such a hot, humid day in Melbourne city today that I thought a cool image from a beach would be just the shot. Imaginations go!

This image was taken quite a few weeks ago ... Summer morning sunrise over Melbourne, with hot air balloons!! After discovering colour in-camera (tungsten and fluorescent white balance settings), I have started playing with colour in editing programs. This image was quite dull with the sun rising behind the large building on the right so I had a play. I hope you enjoy the results.
