Watering the Garden

My Sunday Photo – Watering the Garden

My Sunday Photo for this week is titled Watering the Garden.

I guess it’s kind of self-explanatory. The photos were taken yesterday because we got the first hint of the coming summer. I figured that was a good time to get out and give the neglected garden a bit of attention. Maybe, with a bit of water, the grass may actually survive!

While I was hard at work, a little face appeared at the glass door. Gum boots in hand, Hannah was eager to help! I turned down the water pressure and clipped the nozzle to the on position. Hannah was a little unsure at first, but she soon got the hang of it!

Relieved from my duties, I found a comfortable seat, relaxed and enjoyed the first warmth of spring. It was a pretty great way to spend the afternoon!

Flight Paths

My Sunday Photo – Flight Paths

My Sunday Photo for this week is a long exposure of the flight paths over Cronulla and into Sydney’s Kingsford Smith airport. The photo was taken at around 5am. I used my Nikon D5100, with an exposure time of 135 seconds. I like how sharp and still the rock pool looks, while the sky above shows all the movement – not only of the first planes of the day coming in to land, but also of the stars through the sky as the earth rotates.

Father's Day

My Sunday Photo – Father’s Day

Today is Father’s Day in Australia (just in case anyone hadn’t seen me banging on about my excellent gift guide for the past month…)!

What better day to dig a photo out of the archives – one that reminds me just how quickly time passes. Now that Hannah is a full-of-life 2.5 year old, it is sometimes hard to remember just how tiny and fragile she was in those first few weeks. I used to sit for hours and look at all of her tiny little details, with equal parts shock and amazement that somehow I had been entrusted with looking after this tiny human being. Back then she was easy to photograph, because she stayed still for hours at a time.

One thing that I have learnt over the past 2.5 years is that being dad is the greatest thing in the world. Today may well be a (deserved) day for dads all over Australia to be celebrated, but for me it is also a reminder of just how lucky I am to be Hannah’s dad.

Happy Father’s Day to all the Australian dads! For all of my international dad friends, today is a great opportunity to try on your thickest Australian accent and claim that you are 1/18th Australian. Come join the celebration!

My Sunday Photo – Bob Dylan

Last night I was lucky enough to see Bob Dylan live in concert at the ICC Theatre in Darling Harbour.

It was the fourth time that I have seen Dylan perform, and it was his best concert yet. The set list was packed full of incredible songs and, in true Bob Dylan style, many of them were reworked magnificently. I have included some Bob Dylan Spotify links throughout this post, for your listening pleasure!
