Nurragingy Reserve

May 04, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
Nurragingy Reserve in Doonside is a very cool location with lots to offer. I have photographed a few weddings at this location. It has changed over the last few years. It now has themed garden areas, such as the Chinese Garden, New Zealand, Americas. Lots of different looks. There is a large duck pond so bring duck food (remember though, apparently...

National Museum of Australia, Canberra

May 04, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
I took my kids and father to Canberra to attend the Dawn Service on Anzac Day at the Australian War Memorial. I have three family members on the memorial wall which was very emotional when I found them with my kids when we visited a few years ago. I have never attended a Dawn Service before and felt if I was going to do it, do it right! I love Canb...

Mount Tomah Botanical Gardens, Blue Mountains

April 28, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
I have always heard about the Mount Tomah Botanical Gardens, and wanted to visit, but whenever I was in the Blue Mountains, it was always passing through, on my way to Orange mostly. The Blue Mountains does autumn colouring sooo well, so I thought I would use the opportunity to go in Autumn to have a look at the mountains to find a great location f...

The Strand Arcade

April 05, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
I had seen images of The Strand Arcade on Pinterest, and I was very curious to find this little gem. It is like a mini version of the QVB (Queen Victoria Building). It is very oldy-worldly with gorgeous older fixtures and fittings. There was even a shoe shining man there - although I did have to laugh that one of the oldest professions then got out...

Sydney CBD

April 05, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
It is amazing how you can live in a city but never really "see" it! You go through a place focused on your destination, or the person you are walking with, and never look around, never look up, and never really notice how cool your city actually is! Well, that is what happened with me in the Sydney CBD. I worked here for months (back in 1998) and c...

GPO Sydney

April 02, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
When I ventured into the city to take some photos of the GPO, I was drawn there by the columns, the architecture, and the playing of the light coming in through these columns. However, as I was wandering around, I discovered a door way, that when I went through it, I found a secret gem. My heart just sang!! Through these doors I found amazing stair...

Wynyard Station

April 02, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
I had seen photos of Wynyard Train Station with the old escalators hanging on the roof and wanted to go for a long time!! This this was the week I finally went! It is very cool! I love how they have used the old tracks as an art installation near the new tracks they replaced. However, the whole station itself is very cool and full of amazing leadin...

Art Gallery of NSW

March 23, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
I had to visit the Art Gallery of NSW to help my niece with her school assignment. So, I dragged my children along!! But I thought it would also be a great opportunity to do a location scout! The Art Gallery of NSW is known for its amazing columns at the front. Unfortunately, they are doing building works, so I couldn't get the usual shot of it. Bu...

Cockatoo Island

March 17, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
Well... to say I enjoyed Cockatoo Island would be an understatement! I have wanted to go for a while, and finally all the stars aligned for me to get there. You do need to take a ferry from Woolwich Wharf (and if you know me, I don't do boats... but I will for a photo) to get to the Island. The island was much bigger than I expected, and it has two...

Parramatta Park

March 16, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
Parramatta Park is a lovely location, with so many different areas. There is the Rose Garden, the Diary, the Wisteria Garden, the bridge area, and the other many open areas throughout the park. You can only drive one way through the park, and I think the loop is around 5 km! When I visited, it was the first clear day after about 4 weeks of solid ra...

Hanging my children's pictures

March 14, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
You may have read my blog about decorating my bedroom with images I took whilst I was on overseas trips. I have now finally done photos of my children around the house. I am so excited! I am the second child (of 2). There are literally thousands of photos of my older sister when she was a baby. Every milestone was a brand new experience for my par...

Social Hideout Parramatta

March 05, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
I have seen images of the Social Hideout online and wanted to go and check it out. There are two locations for the funky space, Parramatta and Waterloo. Today, I visited the Parramatta venue. Waterloo looks pretty epic, but didn't have the spare time to go all the way in. This is a really cute location that would be amazing for a couple. Their food...

Holroyd Brickworks

February 23, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
I had been wanting to visit the Holroyd Brickworks for ages. My GPS took me to its location, which turned out to be apartments! I was very disappointed. So, I headed to Holroyd Gardens and sitting in the car park tried to figure out where it was. I should have just gotten out of my car, as that is when I saw the chimneys from the Brickworks and rea...

Holroyd Gardens

February 23, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
I had been searching online for the Merrylands Garden and found the Holroyd Gardens! The day I visited we had had a LOT of rain in the previous day or 2, so it was a bit soggy. The park is quite pretty, but the nicest part, which was the Rotunda (which you can get married in I understand) was closed. Still a lovely venue for some family photos thou...

Merrylands Central Gardens and Reserve

February 23, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
I have done a shoot at Merrylands Park before, but it was a while ago. So I thought I'd have a little look. I didn't pick the best day to visit. We had had over 90 mm of rain in the day and a half previous and I was going in between showers. It did rain on me as I was walking around, so it was very dark and dull the day I visited. That didn't help...
