I’ve been so worried about my own lack of rhythm, stumbling into and through the days lately, that I’ve lost the ability to sit still and listen and feel and get into the rhythm that is buzzing away there already. It’s contained in the movement of the clouds, it’s sometimes gentled and other times roared by the ocean, it’s in the funny noises my cat makes and it’s a heart beat. … Read More Rhythm
The traditional Aboriginal fish traps at Brewarrina, also known as Baiame’s Ngunnhu [pronounced By-ah-mee’s noon-oo], comprises a nearly half-kilometre long complex of dry-stone walls and holding ponds within the Barwon River in north west NSW.

So I went for a bit of an explore and found the bridge on Wednesday night, then got up early to photograph it the next morning.

But, the bridge has some wonderful Indigenous artwork on the pylons well worth sharing.… Read More Tubbagah People of the Wiradjuri Nation: Celebrated on the Bridge
Photography: Trish Jean A beautiful jetty and gorgeous looking water…though a couple of days later there was a shark in there and so the jetty was closed. Glad I got the opportunity to take pictures with clouds overhead and a lovely light to enhance the reflections.
