Oh dear it has been a while since I have looked in here. I think it was 2008 I wrote this introduction.
'I guess you could say I'm a dabbler in photography although it is usually for memories more than anything. I live on a farm so that is were most photos are taken and most have something to do with rural Australia. I'm pretty new to this so am hoping to pick up on some knowledge.
I take all my photos with a Fujifilm Finepix S5700 which works for me. I always use the anti shake/ stabiliser setting because I shake terribly making it is a pretty new thing for me to be able to take photos that aren't blurred.'
So much has changed since then. I went from living on a farm to living on a 190km squared cattle station in dusty western QLD working as a governess (teaching children), which was an adventure in itself, to now living in tropical northern Australia. Throughout this time I have continued photographing everything around me from the ordinary to the extraordinary within everyday life. My camera was retired and replaced by a Fuji Finepix HS20 EXR, which after a bit of a hard run and rough treatment needs some help, and by various smaller point and shoot cameras that have been lugged everywhere and I mean everywhere.
