Yep, it’s a rainy Saturday in Sydney. The click.walk.learn tour of The Rocks that was scheduled for today has been postponed due to the unpredictability of this weather!
So are you looking for something to do today that still fits in around ‘photography?’
There are a few awesome photography exhibitions on in Sydney at the moment..
Head to the Stanley Street Gallery in Darlinghurst to view a thought provoking and emotional exhibition by 702 ABC Sydney multi-media journalist John Donegan.
‘Fighting Fire with Fire’ documents the 2013 Blue Mountains bushfires. John spent a week with the crews defending the Faulconbridge area and recorded this portrait of the volunteers fighting these devastating and ravaging fires.
The exhibition runs from 26th Feb – 15th March. The Gallery hours are 11-6pm Wed to Saturday.
The other exhibition I’ll be checking out today is at the Justice & Police Museum, Cnr Albert & Phillip Sts, Circular Quay.
‘Suburban Noir’ is an exhibition highlighting crime scenes in Sydney during the 1950′s and 60′s. Watch the video below, it’s a definite ‘not to miss’ exhibition. The museum is open today from 10am to 5pm and this exhibition runs through to April (weekends only.)
The museum is also holding two other exhibitions: don’t miss ‘City of Shadows’ and ‘Collision:misadventure by motorcar’ - these two fabulous exhibitions highlight crime and misconduct on the streets of Sydney from days gone bye.
Have a wonderful day

Cockatoo Island on Sydney Harbour truly is a photographers paradise. A fantastic industrial style landscape with lots of old stone barracks, shipyards, tunnels and historic buildings.
The next tour is Saturday 1st Feb. I’ve got a few spots left, so if you’d like to learn more about photography and your camera, come along and join me on a wonderful photography / walking tour of this fantastic island.
This time last year I was in South America on my way to The Antarctic.
I can’t believe nearly a year has past since my trip of a lifetime..
I think about The Antarctic everyday…
The vivid blue colour of the ice, the wildlife and the beautiful feeling of visiting such a remote, isolated part of our planet.
My exhibition, Frozen Lenses was a huge success for me last year..dates will be released soon for venues in 2014
These are some of my favourite pics…
If you have any questions or comments about these photos, I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.

For those of you that know me, I’m a bit of a petrol head.
I LOVE cars, really fast cars.
Late last week I took off to watch my friends son experience his ‘hotlaps’ experience at Sydney’s Eastern Creek.
As soon as I got out of my car, I heard the engines revving and I couldn’t get over to the viewing area quick enough!
There’s just something about the noise, and the smell and of course, the SPEED.…
We had a great time and Jacob loved it!!
Of course after the session I ‘hung’ around for a bit and the mechanics asked me if like to get up close to the cars and take some photos?
I’ve got my hotlaps experience coming up soon, I get to DRIVE the car for 6 laps…..
Bring it on:)
Enjoy the pics. Click on the first pic to view all the pics as a slideshow.

I’ve had a fantastic year….
I turned 50, I realised a dream and went to the Antarctic, my clickwalklearn photography tours business has taken off (and hasn’t stopped) and I’ve had two really successful photography exhibitions.
I’ve taken LOTS of pics this year – I mean LOTS….
Thanks to everyone for all your support. I really enjoy your feedback and comments

Follow your dreams…I do…..xxx

This is my absolute favourite shot from the Antarctic. We were in a zodiac right near Port Lockroy. This magnificent iceberg was backlit and begged to be photographed. It was exhibited as part of my exhibition ‘Frozen Lenses’ during the Head On Photo festival..I could look at it all day
This humpback whale was as huge as he looks in this pic…I look at this shot everyday (its hanging in my loungeroom) and marvel at the wonder of nature…
I bought myself a macro lens earlier this year and have LOVED it ever since!! This pic shows the detail you can get out of this lens. Everyone now go and buy a macro lens…you won’t be sorry
At Easter, we packed up with my family and went to Lake Eucumbene, down in the Snowy Mountains of NSW. It was a photographers paradise! Here are my favourite shots from this trip..I especially love the stars..
I’ve photographed so many babies this year…They were all beautiful and cuddly and gorgeous!! I love them all particularly this first one that really shows the love between Jodie and her beloved Jack….
This is Macey…She’s the daughter of very special friends of mine…isn’t she adorable?
How cute is Lachlan? A beautiful little boy..I love the expression on his face….
Benjamin is such a happy boy, he was SO tired after our photoshoot….how soft does he look here?
Here’s Emily. She was definitely the most photographic little girl with such a beautiful smile….
Mount Wilson is such a glorious town up in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. This garden was truly magnificent. It was really hard to choose my favourite shot, but the softness of the Wisteria and the blurred background makes this shot so easy on the eye….
I celebrated my 50th birthday in June. This is a shot of me, my hubby Ray and my two boys Ryan and Bryce….such a special family time..
Its such an icon in Sydney. The face of Luna Park…I’ve photographed it many times before. But I just love the angle and the colour of this one….
The gardens in the Blue Mountains are always spectacular in the spring and I loved visiting many homes during the ‘Garden Festival.’ I love the colour in this shot and the simplicity of the flower…
The moon….always a challenge to photograph…I spent lots of time with the camera to get this shot….You need a zoom lens, a tripod and lots of patience
Last, but not least, this is my favourite pic from 2013. It’s me…Alone in the Antarctic doing my favourite thing…I absolutely love it!!
Happy New Year everyone
