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.

    Well, it’s certainly scaring me off!- no women allowed in the “mancave”? Great shot Paula!

  • thanks Ben! If this is the entrance to the man cave, then it’s all yours! I’d prefer something pink!

    Whats worrying me is the bolt is on the outside- trying to keep someone locked in there?

  • it must be the booze they’re keeping locked in – this was at a winery!
