This is Joshua, my little nephew, on his christening day.

His name means ‘Yahweh is Salvation’, and is the Hebrew form of the Greek name Jesus.

When I looked at the photo, and now that Christmas is coming soon, I was reminded of the song from Handel’s Messiah:

“For unto us a child is born
Unto us, a son is given….”

Dedicated to Josh from his Uncle…..Oct 2011

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
