Went to the Marree Bush Picnic Races and Gymkhana on Sunday, and was lucky enough to see the finals of the calf branding competition.

To me – this is the epitome of the Australian bush – man and horse just getting on with the job.

I’m a wife.
A mother.
I work.
I blog.
I photograph.
I design tees.
I’m tired.

Hi, my name’s Cathie – although I am mostly animated and a bit of a character – I am a real person and like to think of myself as a digital artist. I occasionally revert to my original persona – taking “straight” photos!
