Self Indulged was featured on Wangle today. It’s a great site and really flies the flag for all things West Australian.

I do believe in my last post I said I would post some images of the rally…..and then September fell into a big hole and in a few days it will be October.
So, here I am playing catch-up with a few photos of the rally….starring Mr Fletcher in the middle shot spruiking on behalf of us West Aussies. Standing up in front of all of those people would put the wind up anybody but he did a fantastic job, especially as Ken Duncan was such a hard act to follow! He conveyed the message that the rules over here in WA seem to be a bit more relaxed…which was true until just this week the council responsible for Cottesloe Beach decided to add a whole heap of new rules. One is the banning of commercial photography without a permit. Hmmm…yes that’s getting old but wanting to ban the flying of kites….well that’s just outrageous! Quick…we need to hold another rally! I LOVE watching kites (just got back from Bali – plenty of kites there and no anti-fun police). And who among us hasn’t squealed in fear and excitement, holding the string as the pointy end spirals out of control at lightening speed towards the top of your head. Get a grip Cottesloe Council!!

Merv, this post is for you! In a very lazy move I have rehashed this old slideshow which is kind of fitting as another world trip has been at the fore front of my mind for a while.
The trip I have in mind is a while away as yet but will be an EPIC photographic expedition if we can pull it off. Mt Killi and Patagonia are calling….as is the rest of the world. There’s lots of ‘research’ going on behind the scenes to try and fund this project and as such the website is being rehashed to incorporate more ‘travel’ ideas as well as photography.
Gotta start putting the thoughts out there to make it happen but you never know what’s around the corner in this life. I’m also learning the joys of timelapse so hope to post some results in the near future.
Can I use the excuse “I’ve been thinking” as a reason for not updating my blog? Of course I can….it’s my blog! 😉
By the way Merv….love your B&W shot of the boulders!
