The iconic Brisbane Treasury Casino & Hotel built in 1885, once the heart of government and now a casino. Conversions of this magnificent building into a casino has ensured that one of Brisbane’s most imposing buildings has been saved for posterity.


black and white, night photography

I have always had a love of capturing images and in my early teens took many photographs on my little Kodak camera. I loved the wild open spaces and bird life in particular and longed to be able to be an accomplished photographer. It took ill health and a forced early retirement to re-kindle this love of photography. I am a self-taught amateur photographer who has had no formal training. I take great pride and joy in my work and these days have the time to pursue this wonderful hobby.
