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!

Plant life in the snow.

And now for something completely different!! I've just finished chatting with my daughter in the UK and I get the feeling she's feeling a little like this image right now ... kind of jangly and uncertain, but also full of excitement and brightness. This image just seemed appropriate to post somehow. I hope you enjoy it.

Had a fantastic day last Sunday with a couple of friends. We drove from Bruthen to Dinner Plain on the Omeo Highway in Victoria. The snow season has been booming and, even though Dinner Plain is not one of the major resorts, there was certainly enough snow around for many people, including us, to have a great time. I took so many lovely photos it was hard to choose just one so I thought I'd show a few. Enjoy.

The new Eureka Tower in Melbourne, taken last Sunday, looking perky in the late afternoon light of a very cold Melbourne winter day.

A photo of Flinders Street railway station and the southern end of the city ... taken last Sunday on my evening stroll with a friend.

I had a social weekend this weekend, catching up with quite a few friends. Went into Federation Square this afternoon with a friend for coffee and we then walked along the river, past Flinders Street, across a bridge and back up the Southbank side of the river before catching a tram home. This image is of a lot of steel sculptures gathered at one end of a bridge near the Crown Casino end of Southbank. Quite sureal!

These three photos were all taken in Tasmania on my trip to Tarraleah in May 2007. The mountain image is in the central highlands of the island. This is snow country so the plant life is bleached of colour but very hardy.
The boat in fog image was taken in Devonport when the ferry docked at around 7:00am. This fog was still thick at 10:30am when we left Devonport for Tarraleah.
The last image is one of my favourites. I don't know what the bush is but I love the dew drops sparkling in the early morning light.

These cute little fellows caught my eye at Poynton's. I think any footy enthusiast should have one! :-)

Another beautiful orchid from Poynton's Nursery in Essendon. This is a Paphiopedilum Orchid or Slipper Orchid. What a superb colour!

One of the many Buddha statues at Poynton's Nursery.

This sculpture was just amazing to see and it was a great centre-point for the Cymbidium orchids to hang from and around. The first image is obviously a close up of the centre glass ball of the sculpture seen in the larger image.

Yet another beautiful orchid from Poynton's Nursery. I must admit, I did go a little nuts photographing around the nursery, particularly the orchids!

While at Poynton's nursery a couple of weeks ago, this lovely young woman caught my eye. Isn't she stunning?
