Random Images

Happy Friday! Downtime is a great opportunity to work on some images that have been hiding in the terabyte stack at HQ.

About 9,000 people live in Byron, plenty doing the sea or tree change from Bondi. This little town attracts 1.5 million visitors a year – yes – […]

Byron Bay

Last week when I mentioned to people I was going up to Byron Bay their first reaction was a puzzled look…then the standard response “Hope you’re not going in the water…it’s too sharky” Yes, they’ve had a bad run up here with big fish coming in close. There are so many theories why. Everyone has […]
