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’!!!

    Heheee! I don’t know why the name just popped? Lately my brain is a seive? :(((

  • I’m glad someone else has that problem – can’t remember essential stuff but strange lateral info will pop into my head quite easily … old age, or over stressed?!!!

    Stunning shot Rosalie….where abouts is this in the Blue Mountains?

  • On the Bells Line of Road Carol, coming up through Richmond and Kurrajong, go past Mt Tomah Botanical Gardens and watch for a turn on the right to Mt Wilson and Mt Irvine. Idyllic village.
