Our infamous bushranger, Ned Kelly, has always had my sympathy – I do believe I understand his reaction to circumstances surrounding his family!!
On my recent road trip back from Melbourne, I called in at Glenrowan – 25 kilometres from Benalla. One of the attractions is a huge Ned Kelly statue and a museum called Kate’s Cottage, which is a replica of the Kelly home, and has all sorts of interesting artifacts on display. It depicts how the Kelly family lived, and shows a replica of Ned’s suit of armour, weapons and items of the era. (Photos were taken with verbal permission …)

I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!
