IF GREECE IS THE WORD…..

Dont bypass Athens, stop and spend some time.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

Put letters together to make words. Put words together to form sentences. Put sentences together to produce chapters. Put chapters together to tell stories. There is an order to letters and to keep the letters in order there is the alphabet. To bring each letter to life is a picture that represents that letter, either […]

THE COLD FACE OF GALLIPOLI

THE COLD FACE OF GALLIPOLI The Gallipoli campaign was brutal and not for the fainthearted. I went in believing I knew what I was in for and somehow came out the other side as the face of Anzac Day 2006. Anzac Day is all about reflection, so let’s we reflect… I had been prepared for […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top

I love getting high! Never one to suffer from vertigo, I love being high….whether it be on top of a mountain after trekking for a few days, or from the Observation Deck of a skyscraper where the effort was no more strenuous than pushing the elevator button.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: SELFIE

The word Selfie finally makes into the Oxford Dictionary in 2013 – 21 years after I invented it! In 1992 I embarked on my first ever solo travel adventure. While friends were starting to settle down, I was shaking it up. While friends were buying bricks and mortar, I was buying trips and memories. While […]

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: JUXTAPOSITION

The first challenge was understanding the actual meaning of juxtaposition. “To place close together or side by side, especially for comparison or contrast” That seems simple enough, but surprisingly found it difficult to make sure the images fit the challenge. Some may be borderline, but maybe the explanation will get them over the line?   […]
