On these pages will slowly appear a collection of images I have made over a period of some thirty years using a variety of equipment including Praktica, Olympus, Mamiya, Yashica, Contax, but mostly Nikon. I have an incurable passion for variety in my chosen hobbies and activities. This is evidenced in the choice of subject matter as I have meandered through life observing and recording where & when I can.

Please browse though these photographs at your leisure and email me with any comments (especially if a link does not work) or just plain chatter as you prefer. My main aim in producing these pages is to establish contact with like-minded folk from all around the world.

Firstly, a small scattering of images from the archives below and then wander off and peek into the other pages via the buttons at the top of this page

Kookaburra hunting
This Kookaburra patiently awaits it's next meal at Noosa Botanical Gardens. When they capture a snake or lizard, they always kill it first by bashing it on their perch. Same goes for sausages they capture at picnics!
Nikkormat FT2, Nikkor 200 lens
An early start captured this Fijian boy setting out to catch fish before school on Mana Isl. A little fill-flash would have brightened up the face, but when you see it, you gotta grab it!

The Front Verandah
I particularly like to poke around old buildings and farms, etc. A wealth of great photo material can be found amongst the clutter sometimes. Work your wide angle lenses here for a more dramatic perspective.
Nikkormat FT2, 24mm lens, 1/60 sec @ f16
This saltwater crocodile was ready with a smile when I came along to his enclosure at the local Crocodile Park. See more of him and his friends in my Beasties Page.

Never Smile At a Crocodlie
Sleepy Boat
I have a weakness for all things marine, especially boats. There is always a photograph to be found around the waterfront, particularly at either end of the day when the lighting is more to the liking of the enthusiastic photo-freak.

The humble Nasturtium. This yellow one was struggling for the light of day under a friend's verandah and caused me to wait quite a while for the breeze to die down and allow the necessary slow shutter speed. The wait is usually worth the trouble, besides it is a good time to contemplate Life, The Universe & Everything!
Nikkormat FT2, 55mm Micro-Nikkor, 1 sec @ f16, tripod.
Rugs, Rugs and More Rugs
Rug merchant at the famous Eumundi Markets on the Queensland Sunshine Coast displays a wealth of weaving for the sharp eyed bargain hunter. Displays like this allow much freedom of expression for the alert photographer.
