I'm going bald!

It is official. I am registered with the World's Greatest Shave. In march, all of my hair will be no more.

On top of this, I have decided to create 70 headbands in 70 days, one for each day that I still have hair. I have created a new blog dedicated to this. You can visit this at

100% of all sales and sponsorship will go directly to the Leukaemia Foundation.

Please take a moment to check this blog out. It is for a very worthy cause.

Carnival of Flowers

Every September, Toowoomba puts on its annual carnival of flowers. The whole town comes alive with flowers. It is a beautiful time of year. These are a few blooms that I captured at the time.

True Beauty

This was the last tulip growing in the garden.

I thought to myself, how beautiful it was. Yes, it showed signs of age and had lost many of its petals, but it was still a beautiful flower growing in the garden. It was there to be enjoyed, and to be loved.

Adenium obesum aka Desert Rose

Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting the Botanical Gardens at Mt Cootha in Brisbane. This beautiful plant was thriving. I absolutely love this. Of course, I have an obsession with most pink things, but this is a perfect flower :-)

They are common to areas between Eastern Africa and Southern Arabia. They can be grown from cuttings, are suited to hot climates, love full sun, and thrive in well-drained soil.

Celebrating Life

This is my latest video.. it is a compilation of a few photos I have taken over the past couple of years.

Someone said to me that people generally only celebrate life when the subject dies, but I think we have every reason to celebrate life every day of our lives. Celebrating because we are still alive and can enjoy all the natural beauty that surrounds us.

There are so many bad things that happen in this world and I do not want to be dragged down by that.

I find that when I take notice of the positive and happy things around us, I am a more cheerful person and the stresses of the day seem insignificant. Life is good and every day of your life is a special occasion.
