Travels with my Q – Bali

Roaming with my Leica Q in Bali from Kuta to Ubud in April 2019. Never been before, never really been interested, mainly because of the apparent reputation of Kuta Beach and the bogan culture. So we spent a day in Kuta then went inland to see the (perhaps) real Bali. …

Christmas trip to Sydney with my Leica Q. Retail therapy. Sort of street photography but with a retail theme. The Q fits perfectly in my hand and is quiet. Also doesn’t look too serious so easier to just snap and go.

Black and White in Colour

I have been enjoying photography for many years. I used to shoot a lot of black and white in the early days, mainly because it was cheaper than colour. Then colour processing became cheaper than B&W processing so colour was the way forward. And I love colour! Indeed. But in …

A Year Down The Lane

Wisberrick, a 500 acre farm near Shelford in Victoria, has a lane running down the middle. Not just any lane. The Lane. I spent some time down that lane over a year in 2016-17. A full farm year. I wanted to tell it’s story, not just for the fun of …
