I took the photo of this week during one of our Covid-19 lock downs. I remember comparing the subject of the photo with the fragility of a person’s ego. How vulnerable we are; how easily bruised; how easily we break. It’s all a balancing act and a question of perspective for not everything is what it seems, really.

Sometimes words can be deceiving because the intentions behind them are misguiding. Artifacts are silent witnesses of history and culture and don’t speak with words but their shapes, craftsmanship, materials and purpose point to historical facts. The subject discovered in 1897, at Elche (Spain). It is from the 4th century BC with strong Hellenistic influences.

Daughter-in-law graduated top of her course and graduated at Southern Cross Uni last Saturday. She asked me to take some photos for the record which in turn gave me the opportunity to test out my new Godox AD200 flash (which I reckon is pretty flash - observe the attempted humour for one Gary Stark)....

This picture begs the question: who used tools first? Did mankind invented tools or did we learn to use tools by observing animal behaviors? I took the picture at Alice Springs Desert Park & Outback. I hope you like it.

This picture is of a structure in the Chermside Shopping Centre for obvious reasons it’s called the Urchin and it’s made of metal. I hope you like it.

Robyn and I am hopefully embarking on a 40th wedding anniversary trip to UK and Spain, leaving on 3rd October. (I say “hopefully” because we are booked on Qantas … enough said). We plan to spend 7 weeks in the old country and a week visiting friends in Espanol. We have booked Airbnb’s in Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Stirling, Isle of Skye & surrounds, Snowdonia, Cornwall, with a spare week up our sleeves for who knows where. (We are giving London a miss as we’ve been there numerous times before).

Any advice on things to do and see w ...

I spied the picture when I visited the South Australia Art Gallery three days ago. The work is by Christian Waller. The work came from the diocese of Bendigo and it represents figures of the Old Testament, Christ’s times and the modern era. I hope you like it.

I took this photo some years ago. As I walked into the State Library of Queensland I saw what it looked like umbrellas hanging upside down suspended from the tall ceiling. It was after I took the photo that I realized what they were. I hope you like it.

An evening walk when suddenly you realize all the elements are balanced for just a precious moment. You want to capture that magic balance of your internal emotions in tuned with nature to prove to yourself it’s possible.

I took this picture a couple of years ago, but it could have been last night when I walked by. It was erected in 2009 to celebrate both World Expo 88’s 20th anniversary and Riverfire. It is now an iconic structure in the city.

As I walked along a Sydney street a rainy day, I saw the subject of this week’s picture. It is a native of Central and South America and also lives in the Andes where temperatures are cool, and the air is moist. Fuchsias were named after a 16th century German botanist - Leonard Fuchs. I hope you like it.

Friends took us to lunch at a very nice restaurant with a rather good menu. I ordered a fish main course. It turned out to be a beautiful pan steamed piece of fish on a bed of black rice risotto topped with charcoal bamboo. Till that very day I had no idea that incinerated bamboo was edible. I hope you like it.
