Roommate

After my weekend in the Brisbane CBD, I made my way to the Redlands area right outside Brisbane for a very busy work week. It was a quiet area and I was too busy to get out much for sightseeing. It was a great week, with an amazing group of people.  A memorable moment from my visit was when I noticed this tiny gecko clinging to the curtain in my hotel room.

B & W in Bendigo

I’m sitting in my hotel room on a rainy Saturday morning in Brisbane the day after Cyclone Marcia made her mark on the city and surrounding areas.  I’m working up my motivation to go out and explore in spite of the soggy mess.  In the mean time, here are some blanck-and-white Instagrams from Bendigo, where I spent the weekend and 3 work days this week.

Launceston, Tasmania

It’s Sunday morning in Launceston, Tasmania and I’m off to photograph Cataract Gorge again today. I arrived Friday afternoon with the weekend to enjoy the sites before work begins on Monday. I’m in Tassie for one week and then the adventure continues in Victoria, Queensland & New South Wales. I sure do miss the Buffalo snow. (Wink).

My Blue Highways – II

A long time ago, a boyfriend in Kansas City pointed me to Blue Highways by William Least Heat-Moon because of my love of the open road.  These days, my travel is largely work related and consists of getting into airplanes and making my way from city to city.  I love cities.  And it is for that reason that I also pine for the open road as an escape from time to time.  Sometimes just driving and soaking in the scenery is like vitamins to me, even if I never take a single photograph.

I was driving along Seneca Turnpike near Clinton, NY when I came upon this strange scene and decided to stop and investigate.  I’m sure there’s a story here, but I have no idea what it could possibly be.

“What you’ve done becomes the judge of what you’re going to do, especially in other people’s minds. When you’re traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don’t have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.” – William Least Heat-Moon
