Osteria Epoca In Brisbane

Out On the Ledge

Yesterday I posted a photo taken from the Ledge Bungy in Queenstown. If you want a bit more encouragement to join the craziness, here’s their promo video. It’s hard to not want to have a go after watching this.


The Other Sign Outside Was

Osteria Epoca can be found on Orontes Road, Yeronga in Brisbane. They are an amazing  Cafe, Bar & Restaurant that does serious good Italian food. When I was there they let me set my camera up to take a few shots, the one I like best is this one of the front window. It’s definitely worth visit if your in Brisbane or the area . Oh, and the Porchetta, Crab linguni or Gamberi come highly recommended.

Skyline Bungy Queenstown

Who Saw Thee Fly?

Bungy jumping is so much fun, I’ve done it twice. Once in Skippers Canyon and once off the Kawarau Bridge. When I jumped off the Kawarau bridge I went backwards which involved leaning back and being suspended there until they they let you go. It was actually rather comfortable until they said “bye” and let me go.  I knew it was coming yet it was still a surprise! This photo was taken from the Skyline Bungy or Ledge Bungy located in Queenstown at the top of the Gondola at Bob’s Peak. Queenstown, the perfect place to fling yourself off perfectly good platforms. It sounds slightly crazy, but then AJ Hackett does crazy very well.

The Coolest Floor In Melbourne

When Colour And Happiness Around Lay

Isn’t this floor just outstanding! I find it hard to believe there would be a better floor anywhere in Melbourne. This is in the Victorian National Gallery in Melbourne. I was originally aiming to photograph the stain-glass ceiling they have there , but an event was on (held by Christian Dior I think) so I searched out the best possible vantage point to capture the floor instead. I ended up on the second floor, because the view from the second floor gave me the interplay between the brick walls and the coloured floor that I wanted.

Inside Sutton Railway Station

I Mark’d Where It Stood

This is the inside of the Sutton Railway Station and yes, there are only two rooms. I went in search of information about the small station and came across a piece that I thought this was so interesting when I read it I had to share it:
“Etched into the timber weatherboards of the station are the names and initials of soldiers from the area who served in the First World War, carved as they left for the front. Among these are the initials of Arthur Charles Peat, a member of the Otago Infantry Battalion, who left Sutton in late 1914 with other local men. Arthur never returned to Sutton. He was killed in action at Gallipoli in August 1915.”

Tautuku Bay Sunrise

And This We Rightly Know

I had this whole beach to myself and it was quite an airy feeling to be strolling along the beach in the darkness. I hadn’t seen another person or vehicle since I left the camp site and once reaching the beach, there certainly wasn’t a shortage of location options to see the sun coming up.

Kapiti Island with Cloud

There Are Reasons You Should Stay.

The whole reason for the crop on this image of Kapiti Island is to get that wee patch of orange/red cloud and it’s reflection in. Initially I cropped it with a 12:5 ratio (or close to it) but the more I looked at it, the more I realised that I really liked what that wee patch of cloud added to the final image.

Inside The Vulcan Hotel

Leave a comment and win.

I’ve currently got a competition running, here’s how you can enter.

That you are here.

I stayed here one night and almost had the place to myself. I’m not sure what I would have done if it was busy. It was the perfect spot to process a few photos over a pint or two of Speight’s. Apart from a Grandfather and Grandson at the end of the bar happily sharing tales about fish and a lady in the dinning room, it was a very quiet night. They certainly didn’t might me setting up my camera for a photo before the landlady told us about the local ghost.

Lake Wanaka At Dusk

In The Evening I Went.

There are so many places, spots and locations to visit to enjoy the landscapes around Wanaka. Of course there are the usual spots of Roys Peak and ‘That Wanaka Tree’ however there are so many other spots and scenes around the area it’s sometimes hard to know where to start when choosing a location to shoot from. The thing I like about this photo is that there was a good twelve to fifteen people around me and every single person was focused on photographing ‘That Wanaka Tree’ while no-one noticed how wonderful the lake or the surrounding hills had been light in colours and silhouettes.

Rakiura National Park

And All Is Silent

Here’s another sculpture, this one’s by artist Russell Beck and was made in 2002. It marks the entrance to Rakiura National Park on Stewart Island. This chain link sculpture symbolises the mythological link between the waka (canoe) of Maui and the anchor stone. According to the legend, Maui fished up Te Wai Pounamu (the South Island) and anchored it with Rakiura (Stewart Island). I also believe they’ve made a matching chain link sculpture on the mainland at Bluff.
