Its great when your friend calls you up while you are sitting on a beach, first laughs at your tripod antis and then says “hey if you are where I think you are you’re not to far from a very cool ship wreck”….. Hard to miss, it you find the light house near Carpenter Rocks, look to your left and there it is. A great day on a road trips with my daughters, definitely a day where everyone was happy doing our thing. Just a few shots or so and enjoyed the almost secluded beach all to ourselves.
Limestone Coast, South Australia, about half hour drive from Mount Gambia.

Cadillac Canyon, San Remo, a very sweet small stretch of beach, I actually thought it would be bigger, At the end of Potters Road, a short gravel road and about 140 steps or so i was told I didn’t count them myself, Some lovely rock formations, i was there at low tide and those waves sure did come in hard and fast. Spectacular, I had it all to myself, surprisedly the weather was mild for July, interesting cloud formations and only a tiny bit of rain as i was leaving. A very cool spot, i was meant to go back the next day for sunset but decided to visit Grantville and have a few ciders instead. You can purchase some of my images here. Thanks
Well do you?
I have been wanting to do this Millionaire walk for nearly 2 years now, I had a look on google maps and although i was quite confident i figured it out, i emailed Mornington Peninsula Website just to be sure, they were great and called me the next day, so I got to Lentell Avenue, Sorrento, there were already two togs up on the wall, saying hey you missed the sunrise and assuring me it was safe enough to get up along the wall, well my aim today was to photograph the piers, tick! So i couldn’t figure out where the walk started from so i got in the car and went to Point King road and from there off i went, the walk is about 1.5km return, fairly easy, scary dog half way, so if you go all the way you will end up at Lentell Avenue, it looks like a private gate. I didn’t photograph any of the houses as it was their back yard. Absolutely stunning! I did have a few favourites. So do I want to be a millionaire? mmmm. I would sure love a view like that, although I’m a simple creature, less is more, minimalist and don’t fancy possessions owning me, but hey you never know., something might change my mind, image all the good I could do. I read an short article last week where a bloke decided what he was going to live on $$$$ for the rest of his life regardless of inflation and the rest he gave away, imagine a world like that! That definitely sounds like a great plan, oh one day, a nice little shack by the beach, with lots of light and studio space and a view of the ocean. Really was a peaceful day, i even forgot I was cold. I only had a few hours then a great day with friends, food and a good laugh, what else is there?!

Its been awhile since I have ventured over this way, just a quick stop in Grantville from Phillip Island on the way home, there were a couple of young guys jumping it the water!!!! Madness, my fingers were frozen in 10 mins, would have been great to stay for the sunset but I thought it best to get my first born home, it was a huge weekend!!!

A full on weekend away with these beautiful people from St Francis of Assisi Parish in Mill Park. A spectacular view! even managed to squeeze in a sunrise shoot with one of my favourite girls 😉
The sun peeked through the clouds for just a moment lighting up the colours on the rocks, it really was a beautiful morning and the perfect way to greet an amazing day to follow.

What is it about the ocean that makes me long for her?
While i love a crowed room full of real people, conversations that delight the heart, the connection of a portrait bringing out the essence of you, that moment that takes place, where you become shape and light and your inner glow seems to float meeting me in the middle, that moment I feel, instinct, click that shutter, the image created, when trust begins and our souls meet.Or photographing a wedding, invited from a distance, and watch the dance of love, their non verbal communication that speaks volumes that only they truly understand, two bodies one heart.
I also love being far and away, my perfect balance.
I crave her certainty knowing that each wave will come in and out in her own rhythm, the sounds, the build up as she swells up in the distance ready to make her spectacular appearance closer to where I stand, her wild and then gentle waves cascading on the solid rocks and platforms, that will not be moved. Her uncertainty, her surprises she brings, occasionally that splash, almost asking are you ready? ready or not, here I come. Her confidence in all her glory.
Sometimes I tell her my secrets, my hopes and dreams and in the process I let go and just be, not a care in the world, after all I do believe it all works out in the end as it should. She whispers, “go with the flow”. She knows, no questions asked.
Yesterday I just sang to her, fun pop songs that make me happy, loud enough for her to hear, Occasionally a few surfers too. the sound of her waves backing up my vocals.
She gives permission to be free and light, allows me to capture her, freeze her in time, slow her down and take with me moments of awe and peace as she carries on freely, her hypnotic ways….
“A woman’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets. But now you all know there was a man named Jack Dawson, and that he saved me, in every way that a person can be saved. Titanic
No Jack required 😉
A great day down at Bells beach, Victoria, Australia, at low tide, it was a wonderful feeling to finally walk around that corner, timing is everything, been awhile since I got my feet wet. I was even singing to myself out loud! its great to see what lies beneath. Nothing like a stroll down great ocean road, visit my favourite spots and discover…. somehow new.

A few weeks back i finally got down to one of my fav spots along the stretch that i have been exploring for the past few years. It always looks so different. I wish this wind in Melbourne would stop!!!!! Note to self : do not answer your phone, you will not see that wave coming, lucky for me and my boy, it was more of a tickle than a slap…
A great couple of days away, off to Warrnambool with my daughter for her gymnastic competition, so we thought we would leave a day earlier and have a little adventure. So windy, a lot of rain and bloody cold, even with 5 layers on, I can’t find one of my jackets!! She even gave me a hall pass to go shoot while she competed, pass on the hall pass, Love equals compromise and that we did……
