2019 Favourites

My 5 favourite photos from 2019 and a mix of my other favourites below.

It’s been interesting looking back over the year, I can see where a few themes developed that I wasn’t aware of at the time.

For one, I definitely photographed a lot of jetties and wharves! There are still quite a few around Lake Macquarie that I haven’t been to yet though, I might do some of those over the next year.

It was fun doing some astro photography as well. Definitely something I want to do more of in 2020.

I hope you like the photos. They’re in the order they were taken.

Sunset 17/12/19

A bright sun descends
From an orange sky,
A portent
Of things to come

Watching the sun go down from the lookout at Green Point Reserve. After the weeks of smoke in the air from the bushfires, it was nice seeing the sun and a clear sky again, even if it’s probably not going to last for long unfortunately.

2020 Calendar Available Now!

I’m pleased to announce that my 2020 calendar is now available for purchase!

The calendar features 12 landscape images from around beautiful Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and The Hunter. All of the photos were taken this year and the calendar includes several photos I haven’t shared before.

I’m very proud of all the photos – they’re some of my very favourites and I think they show different sides of Newcastle and Lake Macquarie which is what I wanted to achieve.

The calendar is A4 size and costs $25, including free postage worldwide. The first 20 calendars will also be signed and include a personal message as a thank you.

You can buy the calendar through my Etsy store or below via PayPal.

Makes a great Christmas gift if I do say so myself! 😉

The Pole, Newcastle

Went to see Newcastle’s newest tourist attraction yesterday – the Pole!

It all started when Newcastle City Council widened the curb before energy provider Ausgrid moved the power pole. While they’ve been trading blame back and forth, the power pole has been left in the middle of the road and, naturally, it’s gone viral and become a bit of a tourist attraction. It’s even in Google Maps!

I’m sure eventually it’ll be fixed but it was fun seeing it first. A different kind of street photography for me! 🙂
