Bollards to you!

Today Dave and I took a bike ride along the Geelong waterfront to photograph the ‘famous’ bollards.  These were all painted by late local artist Jan Mitchell and have become a well known and well loved part of Geelong.  With that in mind I wanted to photograph them all (or at least as many as we could find).  In fact the first ones that Jan painted were in Barwon Heads and these I managed to photograph yesterday (see Barwon Heads gallery). It...

Trip down the coast…

Today we took a trip along the coast to Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads and Torquay.  The sun was out and while it was breezy, it was very pleasant.  Got some fantastic views of the coastline and even caught my nieces splashing about in the sea as well a good few surfers!!  Actually got some great shots of a pelican up close which was pretty cool too. Ended the trip at Torquay which is a very popular surf resort.  If you didn’t know the huge...

134 meters above seas level…

Well I was a bit nervous early on but today my sister and I, successfully climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge.  It was absolutely amazing.  I’m not great at heights by a long shot but it was far easier than I thought. Needless to say the views are fantastic.  Unfortunately, but understandably, you are not permitted to take a camera with you on the climb.  In fact for fear of anyone dropping something you are not allowed to take anything apart...
