The rock platform at Bulli Point features some remarkable colours and formations. I shall allow the photographs to speak for themselves.
Every time I play these clips the music simply entrances me. The repetitive percussion and the rise and fall of the rhythm and the crescendos that writhe around you are just mesmerising.
Darcy Moore and I went for a walk around Mount Keira yesterday. Mount Keira, with an elevation of about 470 metres, dominates the escarpment west of the city of Wollongong.
There were a few Rainbow Lorikeets in our garden this afternoon. I was photographing the sky at the time & managed to take two photographs of the birds as well.
Yet another beautiful sunset. I went outside to unwind and an array of clouds in the western sky bore the promise of a glowing sunset.
Love looking at the sky. There is always something happening and I am yet to see a repeat. Back in May, Venus was quite bright in the western sky following sunset.
Bike riding around Lake Illawarra and along the coast down to Barrack Point. Incredible scenery, a peaceful cycle path and plenty of flora and fauna. Recommended to all cyclists with an interest in photography.
These photographs were taken on the 1st September 2012 during a bike ride from Barrack Point through to Lake Illawarra and Oak Flats. They were taken with a small Nikon S9200 Camera.
These photographs were taken on the 10th June 2012 during a bike ride from Barrack Point through to Lake Illawarra and Oak Flats. They were taken with a small Nikon camera.
Went for a ride with my friend Evan along the cycle track that follows the coast from North Wollongong through to Sandon Point and beyond. It was a perfect afternoon and the cycle track was not too crowded.
During this Autumn the skies over the Illawarra have been impressive, particularly at sunset. The moon has been a part of these evening performances as well.
A few weeks back I was capturing the clouds as sunset progressed and I made a few attempts to photograph the moon through the thin evening clouds. A few of the photographs are in the gallery below.
The photographs in this gallery were taken on the 7th May 2012 looking west towards Nebo from Figtree. This Autumn is proving to rich with the most impressive of sunsets and these images demonstrate how the sky seemed to be on fire this particular evening.
The photographs in this gallery were taken on the 12th May 2012 looking west towards Nebo from Figtree. I had the feeling given the cirrus clouds and the sunset that there mighty be iridescent clouds and luckily my prediction proved true.
The photographs in this gallery were taken on the 5th May 2012 looking west towards Nebo from Figtree. Another brilliant sunset. There have been many.
The photographs in this gallery were taken on the 28th April 2012 looking west towards Nebo from Figtree. This Autumn is proving to rich with incredible sunsets.
A couple of Sundays back I went for a bike ride with a group of friends in Johor, Malaysia. We rode from Pengerang to Sungei Rengit. We rode through small kampongs, past the homes, gardens and local makan places. No rush, no traffic, no hustle, no bustle.
Bought a new bike. It is a Giant Cross City hybrid bike. Basically a flat bar road bike. Recent bike riding experiences in Singapore and Malaysia convinced me it was time to purchase a new bike.
Riding a mountain bike around Pulau Ubin on a hot, steamy day. There is a gallery of photographs for you to check out. People, flora, fauna, boats and signs.
I think I know how Singaporeans must feel as the places they know well are torn down and swallowed up in the name of progress. Their kampongs, favourite eating places, schools and homes.
Photographs taken during my morning walk on the campus of Nanyang Technological University. The sun had just risen and the morning heat had not as yet set in.
Shih Lin District, Taipei, Taiwan. Images of the town, traffic, architecture and the surrounding mountains.
I alighted at Luzhou MRT and explored the area a bit. A little off the beaten track. I took a few photographs and dodged the rain as best as I could.
These icons of design and similar are appealing to me because they are aesthetically simple and clean. The design is uncluttered.
This cat sits diligently outside its owners store in Zhinan Road, Taipei in the Wenshan District. It will not be moved. Nearby dogs disturb it not.
Budderoo National Park and Nellies Glen. Photography with Darcy Moore. Nellies Glen, bush tracks and ant mounds.
A couple of weeks ago Shao Ping and I attended a wedding in Cairns, Queensland. We stayed for four days and we took the opportunity to visit the Great Barrier Reef.
Recently I had been part of an online conversation regarding David Bowie’s first concert tour of Australia back in 1978. Bootleg tapes of his performances in Brisbane, Perth and his final show in Sydney have eluded collectors.
The blue was deep and the cirrus clouds overhead gave things perspective. I stopped outside Red Hill MRT, grabbed my camera and took four photographs.
Presently sitting in the Taipei Eating House. Trengannu Street. Chinatown. Singapore. 2011. I have been eating in this establishment on a regular basis since 1999.
Tiong Bahru is an area of Singapore that I had not explored before. I had been to the shopping plaza adjacent to the MRT station. This time I ventured further afield.
A sunny afternoon. A warm place. A cat. Good weather. Was preceded by a week or two of cold, wet weather. Sootie enjoyed sun. Exploring, basking, relaxing, sleeping, cleaning.
The crystal clear skies, the deep blue ocean and the gently breaking waves. A surfer and a fisherman. Peace and calm prevail. A contrast with the storms of yesterday.
The Illawarra Coastline experienced a great deal of rain this week. The storms were due to a low pressure system generating big swells & big waves captured by me on camera.
Managed to photograph a halo around the sun today with the help of a balustrade and a tree trunk.
Shao Ping and I went for a drive to the Royal National Park, located between the Illawarra to the south and Sydney to the north. We also dropped by Bundeena and Port Hacking.
Back in August 1998 the Illawarra region experienced an intense storm system. It was the 17th August 1998. The city centre of Wollongong received 316mm of rain in 24 hours.
About midday thin icy clouds began to float by the sun and an array of colours began to appear as the sunlight passed through the ice crystals.
The weather is nice today. It is Saturday, May 14th. The south coast of NSW, Australia. It is autumn and winter is nearing. I took some photographs.
Darcy Moore and I went galavanting again on Saturday morning and took photographs at the Boneyard near Bombo and Kiama, New South Wales. An early start to the day.
A week of meetups, iPad Workshops, digital storytelling, social media, gatherings, iPads, great food, Tiger Beer, two John Larkins & great company in Singapore.
Went walking with Darcy. Early yesterday morning. Darcy had quite easily convinced me to meet him at 5.00AM to photograph the sunrise over the Pacific Ocean. I have not been on a photographic excursion with Darcy for a while so I thought, “Bugger it, why not?” I was awake well before sparrow’s fart, had a(…)
Melbourne is an interesting city. Shao Ping and I just spent 4 days there. Tourists we were and also observers of the human condition. We enjoyed our break in Melbourne and we intend to return to catch the Tutankhamun exhibition in April. We went to the National Gallery of Victoria and checked out the Gustave Moreau(…)
My wife Shao Ping and I lived in Pasir Ris in north-eastern Singapore for a year or so and sometimes of an evening we would walk down to the beach to catch the cool breeze and watch the world go by. Mangroves dotted the shore and the nearby estuary. It was not unusual to see(…)
I was fond of the storms that criss-crossed Singapore. These great storms would roll in with high winds and driving rain. I would watch them from the windows of our flat in Bukit Batok. I photographed the storms and this is one such occasion. The swirling clouds, intense rain, the smell of the rain and(…)
Some time back the Illawarra coastline of southern NSW was host to an intense low pressure system and the cell whipped up some impressive seas off the coast. I managed to capture a few photographs of the big swells and the waves crashing over the breakwater at Belmore Basin.
One morning some time back I had the opportunity to photograph a sunrise. I was at North Wollongong Beach. The sun rises over the Pacific Ocean, our eastern horizon. I was pushing the limit with exposures, concerned I would burn the living daylights out of the old Sony digital camera that I was using. Well,(…)
Back in August as I was driving along my street towards my home I noticed that the clouds in the west looked icy as the sun was setting. As soon as I arrived home I grabbed my camera and began photographing the clouds as the sun sank behind the horizon. In winter is not that(…)
