Photo a Day Challenge - Day 127 A Smell You Adore

Firstly, I thought, how do you take a photo of a smell?? So a little 'outside the box' thinking was needed for this one. A smell that I do adore, apart from the standard perfumes etc (Michael Kors being VERY high on the list) is that of flowers, and more so, the smell of freshly cut grass. No surprises there hey?

Turf Trials

I don't know what it is, I just like the smell of fresh cut grass, much the same as a storm that is not to far away. Also, again weird I know, but in the middle of summer, on a hot bitumen road, when it starts to rain, again when there is a storm nearing, ahh the smells of summer...

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 126 Someone That Inspires You

Someone that inspires me, as in present form, or in the past tense? Lets do both, shall we?

In the 'past tense, its kind of a no brainer as the single most important person, who not only inspired me, but also had confidence in me to do the things I wanted to do... That is, L...


Now in the 'present', this is a little more difficult, as there are many who inspire me, drive me to try new things and to achieve a lot more than I thought I ever could. Also, not just that, but in a lot of ways, maturity beyond their years as well... BUT, they know who they are and exactly WHAT they mean to me, as I have told them of this...

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 125 You

When I visited Hong Kong back in 2010, I got to catch up with a turf colleague who's the Track Manager for both Happy Valley and Sha Tin, Hong Kong Jockey Club. Here we are, just past the finish post at Sha Tin...

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 124 Bird

I was out spotting in Melbourne, and along the airport viewing park, is a rural area where a lot of birds flock. On this occassion, there was a flock of Crows. This little fellow is sitting on a road sign just off the road...

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 123 Fun

Last month, it was the 2012 Royal Easter Show, and we had the best fun... On the days it wasn't raining though of course!! Here is the view from the top of the Ferris Wheeel, looking down on Side Show Alley. I used an iPhone App to give it a 'tilt-shift' appearance.

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 121 Skyline(s)

I've been lucky enough to see a few skylines in my travels, yet nothing seems to surpass that of Sydney's. And this is not just that its my home city either, its the type of construction, its textures, and of course, surrounded by the magnificant harbour... The only one that comes close, is that of Hong Kong, especially when viewed from atop of Victoria Peak...

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 120 Peace

Recently, an organised airside tour gave us the opportunity of photographing 'up close and personal' to the active runway in Sydney... Here, a QF Boeing 767-300 is taxiing past where we were located, and he gave us the 'PEACE' sign - cool hey!
