Smell the Sea
The smell of the sea for many of us evokes memories and sometimes dreams. This as an ongoing and developing collection of candid photographs that relate to the sea.
On the shore
A collection of shots taken during walks along the beach
Breathing the city
An ongoing project of street shots from Melbourne. Candid photographs of little slices of life, not staged and not posed. City life as I have interpreted through my camera. Moments that may only last a single breath in time.
Street photographs from locations I have visited other than Melbourne
This a project documenting how we use our flag and asking does this say something about us as Australians and our society.
Images from road trips and other explorations
Leaving a mark
As humans we leave marks wherever we go. Sometimes people write their name or leave a tag. Sometimes we just leave a mark by our actions. This is a visual reference of some of the marks I have seen.
