Playing catch-up

 Rally

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!!

The other news is that the new online mag SELF INDULGED is going great guns!

Coral Bay by Sandy@SHOTS

I was in JBs a few days ago and all of the TVs were playing the same amazing footage of our ‘Earth’ from the air and my eyes were glued to the screens. The sound was down but I knew right away whose imagery it was (I’m a big fan of YA-B) so I enquired at the desk and they told me the dvd was called HOME by Yahn Arthus-Bertrand.

I watched it last night…with the sound turned on.

The photography was stunning, the narrative was terrifying.

Well worth a look!

EDITORIAL…Happy Birthday Pom!

April 14, 2010

A few people have recently emailed to ask about the magazine that I freelance for.  It’s called the Whingeing Pom and has just celebrated it’s 2nd birthday.  I usually do the covers and shoot & write the travel feature….spreading the joys of travelling this fabulous country to anyone who’ll listen.  See some examples HERE & HERE.

The mag is a great read for anyone and everyone, very tongue in cheek and lots of fun and is sold in newagents all across Australia.

Happy Birthday Pom….here’s hoping you get to a grand old age (cos there’s plenty of things left to see and do!)
