Photo round-up: Narooma

I forgot to mention my exciting news… I bought a new battery for my camera!! Now it lasts for hours and hours and hours, not 45 minutes (if I was lucky). HAAHAHAHAHAH!! But seriously, it makes life so much better/easier. 😀

That being said, here are some pictures from several trips to the south coast, Narooma beach and mangroves to be precise.

The Narooma hole – we saw seals on the same day!!! Very exciting.

And my camera battery is still going strong, muahahahah! Stay tuned for more photo uploads, including some awesome abandoned rural houses…

Photo round-up: Rural Ruins

A few weeks back, my dad and I did some exploring of an abandoned mid-19th-C building complex, and it had some awesome photo opportunities; not to mention being a really cool place to have a look around. Here are some of my favourites:

1. A Lonely Life

2. Threshold (my personal favourite)


3. Sun in the Sty

Dreaming of a White Christmas?

(Does anyone else find it really stupid that they play Christmas carols about snow and winter in Australia? I.e. where it is the SUMMER solstice? Thanks Christianity, for ripping off pagan holidays and trying to pass them off as your own, completely screwing up the cycle of festivals that are directly tied to the seasons!![/sarcasm])

Nonetheless, I have been sorting and editing photographs from earlier this year, including pictures from Kiandra in the Kosciuszko National Park, this past winter;

1. Drift


2. Crisp Contrast

3. Untitled (SUGGESTIONS?)

Little Lake

4. Tundra


That’s it for now, stay tuned for pictures of food and my epic Lego mansion I’ve been building!

Photographing an Abandoned Abattoir

Sorry for the long hiatus, life on this side of the screen has been pretty hectic. To apologise, here are some pretty pictures;

One fine day, my dad and I set out to explore an abandoned abattoir in the Snowy Mtns; this was actually before I moved back here, I just hadn’t gotten around to editing and uploading them. This is set one of (at least) two.

1. “Basic Geometry”. Love all the lines.

2. “Descent”.

3. “Forgotten”. Down on the lowest floor, there was a bunch of children’s stuff; dolls, teddy bears, even a bassinet. Creepy as hell.

And speaking of creepy, here’s a bonus shot of a mummified headless kangaroo. Why not?

Photo Round-Up: Sunsets

It’s no secret that I particularly love to photograph lightscapes, especially sunsets/sunrises. Bearing that in mind, here is a collection of some of the more note-worthy sun-scapes I’ve photographed;

1. Sunset over the Parramatta River

2. Second Sunset over the Parramatta River

3. Sunset from the back of the Leichhardt property.

4. “Aglow in the Afternoon”; sunset hitting the sandstone rock overhang, on the Parramatta River.

Photo: Kingswood

Here’s a veeeeeery old one, from when I first moved to Sydney in 2008, where I lived in Kingswood in the far western suburbs. I still love the composition of this one;

I’ve been quite productive of late; not only have I almost finished my Book of Shadows, I’ve edited quite a lot of photographs to upload here. So stay tuned!

Photos; Ghosts No Longer Linger & Waiting for Eternity

1. “Ghosts No Longer Linger”, yet another from Callan Park psyche hospital – I layered the image, desaturated the top layer and erased through to reveal the colour on the previous layer. I also changed the lighting angle. Woo!

2. “Waiting for Eternity”, another Callan park one. Changed the tonal qualities to be slightly more yellow, that’s about it.

Photo: Breathing is Dangerous

Yet another from the Callan Park psyche hospital collection. Played with saturation and hue a bit.
