The air raid shelter on Cockatoo Island is decorated with a painting of Mick Jagger’s latest model girlfriend.

Seriously now, … I liked the contrasts of rustic colour & soft artistic pastels & the contrast of a strong structure against the soft temporal artwork.

Another fascinating sight at the former shipyard of Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour.

This photo was taken at the recent Redbubble Rumble on Easter Saturday, 2012. Thanks again to Rosalie, Philip, Ian, Jason & the crew for a great day out with the cameras.

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.
