Taken one evening in the historic town of Queenscliff on the Bellarine Peninsula whilst sitting down to fish and chips. An average evening but thought the black and white turned out fairly well.

Hi, I’m an amateur photographer living in the Dandenong Ranges area – around an hours drive (on a good day!) from Melbourne, Australia.
My main camera is a Canon EOS 350D DSLR and while most of my work is digital, I love to work with film when possible.
Photography is a real passion for me and I endeavor to keep learning new techniques; RedBubble really helps my photography improve and spurs things along.
