AUSTRALIA

Photographs from 1969 to the present day

 

Most photos on this site - Malmsbury, Melbourne, Johanna, the Man-Woman pics have their origin in Australia

There have been trips - up the East coast road from Wilson's Prom in the south to Cape Tribulation in Qld in the north. Acoss the South, East to West. Tasmania. The West coast from Margaret River in the South to Monkey Mia, Australia's capitals. Many years have been spent in Melbourne but also in Tasmania, Sydney and country Victoria. The centre I know only through flying across with eyes to the window...

This page is for photos taken that don't fit other classifications. Recently added and incomplete...

SKIES

 

There are few breathtaking mountains in Australia...

Clouds above the flat horizon and broad plains often seem like magical ephemeral mountains...

The first series of photos I thought about making (in the 1960s) was clouds.

Now, like then there's nothing better to do on a summer's day than lay back, gaze on the clouds and dream!

PHOTOS from Oct 2011 to June 2014

Due to an unfortunate experience with a disc drive neally all photographic work from the period Oct 2011 to June 2014 is lost.

The hard drive (a Maxtor Basics External Desktop 1TB Hard Drive PN:9NZ2D8-500) will no longer run. It was at half capacity with practically all photos I had taken from Oct 2011 to June 2014. I imagine about 300gb of photos with nothing backed up. To date there have been three attempts to recover some data with no good news but considerable costs.

The main bodies of work that have been lost are Malmsbury Landscapes and Portraits of the People of Malmsbury. The portraits were a developed body of work, a useful visual record of many occupants of Malmsbury with some people having already passed away. A few photos from that period have been found on SD cards but almost nothing else exists from that period. The only place that the preceding Cairns photos on this page exist is on this website, low resolution though they are.

Any help, expertise or recommendations of data recovery or experts gratefully received.
