Holiday sneak peek

Happy new year!

I’m back from holidays – 3 nights in Melbourne, 3 nights on King Island for a photographic safari, and 6 nights with Christmas day in Hobart. We’d been planning and organising this trip since April. It was my first time in Victoria and Tasmania. I left the heavy Nikon DSLR and lenses at home and took my lightweight Fujifilm kit instead. I’ve got lots of stories to share, which of course include the fantastic food I ate and reflections on the photographic experience. As usual, my travel tales will be interspersed with Perth posts. Here’s a sneak peek at just some of what’s to come…

And yes, that wallaby is sticking its tongue out!

    :-) Photos look good!

    • Thanks. Incidentally, I did these collages in Photoshop (mainly just resizing and cropping) using JPGs straight out of the camera – none of these were edited in Lightroom. But there’s a lot of Lightroom work ahead of me. :)
