The steam tug wattle pulls alongside the QE2 in
Port Phillip Bay Melbourne. Black & White
invokes a timeless quality and we could easily
be looking at the titanic in portsmouth harbour.

I look for design in everyday situations, Industrial grunge, typography, quirky landscapes, colour, form and anything with a design aesthetic that catches my eye. I completed a Diploma of Graphic Design and have continually worked in this field. I prefer to compose and design in-camera – my graphic design training taking over:) I return to fertile ground once in a while trying to improve previous pictures.

    Turned it from a picture associated with rich people, to what could have been our story of migration. (The ships that brought us here and the ships that used to take ‘us’ {certainly my mother} back to the country of origin, for that first time back.)
    Very much agree: Great angle and scale.
