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!

Another image from the long weekend just gone. This is one of the probably many small streams which feed into Triplet Falls in the Great Otway National Park. It's a pity the image doesn't come with smells ... the smell of a rich rainforest after the rain. Lovely.

Last weekend I went to Apollo Bay for a long, relaxed and kick-back weekend with my daughter... or so I thought! To be fair, most of the weekend was just that. However our last day included a leasurly stroll around the Triplet Falls walk in the Great Otway National Park south-west of Apollo Bay (thereabouts). Now this walk was labled 'moderate to difficult' in the difficulty description and was a 2 km, 1 hour return walk. So long as I could take my time, I felt up to the task. However I did not take into account an 'off-the-track' trip down to the water, lovely though it was! What was worse, I thought, was getting back up again. Was it worth it? YES! If you are ever in the area, take a hike and have a look.

Last month I went with friends to the Melbourne Zoo. I discovered Winter is not the best time to visit this place as many of the animals were in hibernation or were very listless. The otters always amaze me... they are so curious and (normally) very active and they are usually difficult to photograph. On this occasion they refused to come out of their box. Soon after I took this photo they rearranged the straw in their house to completely block any view of them.

Giraffes have always fascinated me -- I can watch them for hours. This is the first time I have managed a close-up of their head ... not a particularly good looking animal but still fascinating. Enjoy.

I was going through photos taken this year and came across this one which I decided I really liked. I'm not sure if I prefer it in B&W or colour so decided to put them both up. I hope you like them. Cheers

Wow! It's been brought to my attention (thanks Joanne) that it has been over a year since I posted anything here. So, to start up again, here are some fun shots of a sailboarder photographed off Brighton Beach, Melbourne a few months ago. This was in the middle of Winter but there were many sailboarders on the water regardless of the cold. This fella was spectatular with his skills. I hope the images give you some idea of what he was like. Enjoy.
