Rice - a photographic journey

The value of Rice to the Balinese people cannot be under estimated, it shapes the people and their country and it’s landscape.

1) The new shoots, cultivated and ready for planting.

2) Back breaking work.

3) The early stage, taking hold

4) Just add water, straight from the source, and it relies on a lot of water!

5) The Rice Fields

6) Terraces

7) The Harvest

8) Balinese Kitchen, stove and rice cooker

9) Rice Steamer

10) Ready to serve, even serving rice is an art form here!

11) And not just for lunch & dinner. Black Sticky Rice desert – my favourite!

Pako Festa - a celebration of smiles, cultures and colours.

Geelong’s 2010 ‘Pako Festa’ – a festival celebrating our diversity and cultural groups from the local areas. Basically a lot of fun, and all for a great cause.
Being at a distinct disadvantage though, compared to my fellow photographers, due to the lack of millimetres that I am able to put on the front of my camera! I gave it a go all the same!

The Birth of the Sound of Summer.

Cicadas are for me the sound of summer and christmas. One night we found this fella on our front garden fence, we pulled up a couple of chairs and an esky, and sat back to watch the birth of the sound of summer! Took a couple of hours but well worth it.

Breaking Out!

Cicadas live in temperate to tropical climates where they are among the most widely recognised of all insects, mainly due to their large size and remarkable acoustic talents.The name is a direct derivation of the Latin cicada, meaning “buzzer”, and they among the loudest of all insect-produced sounds. Many filmmakers around the world use the cicada sound to help signify the summer season.

Once they are liberated from their larvae shell, they start to pump up their wings until they are ready for flight.

Compliments of Gus

Compliments of Gus are a local Geelong Christian band, just recently completing the launch of their new festive CD “Seasoned”
I enjoyed the first gig in Geelong so much, that I decided to have a go at photographing them at their second gig in Werribee. Very very talented musicians and performers, check them out if you ever get the chance.
My first go at photographing a band, and as you would know the lighting can be a real challenge! Any feedback and tips welcome.

A Weekend In The Otways.

One weekend in July, my wife Debbie and I and Ella our Labrador, decided to spend a couple of days in the Otways, Victoria.

We stayed at cottages in Glenaire and spent the Saturday walking in the lush forests there and chasing waterfalls. With a few tips from John Conway, I took my 40D with me and attempted my first waterfall shots.

If you haven’t been here yet……you need to!

1) The room with a view – from the Glenaire Cottages.

2) Our crimson friends – native birds visited often.

3) Beauchamp Falls

4) One of the many beautiful streams in the Otways.

5) Sequoia Sempervirens – Along the road we came across some mighty Californian Redwoods, planted in 1938 along the banks of a stream, they were a lovely place to take a stroll.

6) It sometimes pays t…

Pt Addis and Moggs Creek Walk - Airey's Inlet, Victoria.

Thought I’d have a go at sharing some photo’s from a walk I did on Tuesday (7th July), at Airey’s Inlet.
The walk was just over 20kms, including photographic side trips!, and took about 6 hours. The hardest part being the 3.5kms along the beach at Loutit Bay, Fairhaven.
The weather was beautiful and sunny, great for walking but could have been better for the photograhic side.

Some photo’s from the first half of the walk.
