“Bigfella” 1/60, f/8, ISO 100, 20mm
A drive from Armidale back to Gunnedah via Kentucky, Wollun and Walcha Road had plenty of opportunities to practice with my camera.
Exposure time 1/640 sec

Just practising the “photo within a photo” yarn.
“When Little Love is Strong”.
I like the contrast in the picture, she had subdued her older cousin and is cool, composed and melted into a gorgeous hug whilst he is helplessly giggling and with the focus on her steady gaze, the little has become the strong.
I was trying out my new 50mm lens and enjoyed being able to take pictures inside without a flash.
f1.8 1/60 sec ISO 640 (auto), 50mm lens.

Photo taken August 3, 2015, 8km from Gunnedah on Kamilaroi Highway.
I took this photo on The Central Coast on Sunrise. It shows the rock pool reflection and the beautiful sunrise. I love the colours that came out of it.

Waiting for Mumma
Panasonic DMC-TZ40: f/5, ISO-100, 1/250sec
This sight reduced me to tears when I came across it trekking through Vietnam’s Sapa region in 2014. I hid behind our guide to take this photo so I wouldn’t offend those dear little ones, nor let them see my sad reaction to having no food or water left with them & their inherent danger, especially for the little boy, obviously not toilet-trained & no nappy, with legs dangling over a sheer drop. All part of their daily routine as they wait for hours in the oppressive heat for Mum to hoe the paddy terraces so far below that I could barely see her, but he hardly took his eyes of her. It was the word “beautiful” on the girl’s filthy shirt, her gorgeous but expressionless face & her brother’s fly-smothered snotty nose & his putrid stench, that really brought me undone & I get emotional every time I revisit this image. Some moments can’t be un-seen or un-smelt. This is one of mine.

This is Jemma, a debutante I photographed, very happy with the result as it was my first formal shoot.
