365 / 39: Some Photos

Today I am going to do something different and just give you a couple of my photos.

That is all. Some images that really work for me. I hope you enjoy.




365 / 20: A Riddle for You

How would you complete this caption?

20120105-224303.jpgI Lost Everything and Found It Again at the?

I saw this in a shopping centre and found myself almost disgusted. Consumerism goes philosophical!?! Is it time to start learning our life lessons whilst we shop for the latest and greatest object, dress, pair of shoes that we really do not need. Doesn’t that rather ruin the feng shui of the shopping centre?

They are meant to be cold, heartless places. So why make us think? If we start thinking, we might stop consuming!!

I have been lost and found on at least one occasion, but hopefully for the last time. I am glad to say that I did not find myself in a shopping centre but sad to say that it was not me that found me. When I was lost, I made some bad mistakes, but it was the love of a wonderful woman that found me again. She taught me how to swim again in this life, and to stop drowning. She taught me how to read the tide and plot the best course through it. With her by my side, plotting our course together is easy.

I am happy to say that that wonderful woman is my wife. So my version of the riddle is: I lost everything and Found it again in the arms of my beautiful woman. I realise that I cheated, but it’s my blog so I can.

The Demise of Doug

On numerous photo trips to local rivers and lakes we found ourselves always surrounded by birds of all sorts – ducks, eagles, kites etc. But one insect more than any other always seems to find us – dragonflies. As a bit of a joke I collectively named them Doug.

So everywhere we went we found Doug following us. Always a Doug to find and photograph. The kids would yell ‘There’s Doug’ and we would look around to find another bunch of them flitting around in the reeds beside the lake, pond or river that we were at. They hovered near us and on the odd occasion we got some great photos. They are flighty and quick and most difficult to capture with a camera.

Fly Like An Eagle

In every life we have an opportunity to either paddle with the ducks or fly like an eagle. It is a conscious choice we have to make. There is a decision we need to contemplate when doing this grand adventure.

It is a matter of choice on the way you choose to live your life. Duck, duck, duck and eventually be a goose. Or fly, fly, fly and be free like the eagles. Live a life as free as the birds that fly over our head every day. Choose not to let the material things tie us down. Choose not to let the work things get in the way. Do what we need to, but when we do not have to do that, LIVE.

Camper van Celebration

Recently my wife and I hired a campervan for a week almost on a whim. Our kids were very disappointed when we told them that it was only a two berther, so much so that Summer almost cried on the spot. You see they have the same travlling bug that we do, but this week was just for us to recapture our excitement (though our excitement never really disappears).

Van Away

Here’s a bit of a free plug for Britz!

It was an excuse for us to travel around Victoria and just stop wherever we liked to look at whatever we liked. A chance to commune with the flora and fauna, wild and wilderness, sun and surf.

My New Kids

If you read my blog often enough, you would have probably noticed that I have two boys from a previous marriage that I do not see anymore. Sometimes even I have enough of thinking about them!

What you probably do not realise is that I also have two children from my new marriage and one slightly deranged cat. They play a huge part of my life now, so I would like to introduce you to them.
