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).

Ringing in the New Year

Today I took the Christmas tree down.  This is usually one of the first signs than I’m ready to embrace a new year.  I’m looking forward to what is to come.

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.

Hats in Old San Juan

         One of the most enjoyable stops during our time in Old San Juan was an old-timey shop called Olé which sells hand-made Panama hats fitted and accessorized to your specifications right their in the shop.  Pictured below is the owner fitting Allen’s choice, a Montecrisi, one of the finest Panama hats you can buy.  Also pictured, Allen Modeling another hat, and a tourist who kindly let me photograph her as she chose a hat of her own.
