I always wanted to be an architect, but instead did several art degrees, taught in schools and universities around the world and retired a few years ago from the University of Melbourne where I was Head of Photography. My photographs are of things that interest me. My real love was medium format, black and white photography, but I have come to love my digital camera and the power of colour.

    When enlarged, the power of the water is very evident – even though this is but a small section of the falls! Beautifully rendered in monotone.

  • Thank you Bette for your great comment, much appreciated.
