I love being a tourist in my own country; the unique flora and fauna, the wonderful people, the striking vivid colours. Photography has opened up my country to me. I try to get out into it & photograph it as often as I can. Access to the great Australian outback is within easy reach of everyone! I hope you take the time to view some of my photos & I hope that they inspire you to go for a drive on the weekend and see what you can see.

    Paula – where are you getting these textures- are you just layering your own textures or is there a website where one can down load them?

  • I’ve sent you an email, hope you are having fun with textures! :)
