Same Sky

Same Sky

Next week I launch my first collection of poems “Same Sky”. I will be sharing this moment with the community of Forrest Beach near Ingham. Thanks to the Lost Shark – Graham Nunn for bringing this collection into existence.

Friday Night Lights #7

I love taking photos of subjects you can eat afterwards!!  This week my camera has come in contact with a whole heap of jelly, 10 cups of deliciousness and some citrus fruit fun to cut through the sugar overload.

Friday Night Lights #3

Friday has been rolling around quickly and this project being one of the highlights of my week.  Braved the weather to see what  inspiration could be gleaned from the rain soaked streets of Sandgate for Week #3 of Friday Night Lights.

Friday Night Lights #2

Here’s a series of photos from Week #2 of the Friday Night Lights Project.  Playing with party sparklers, a few singed hairs on my head from getting to close to the action, but worth the fine results!!

Friday Night Lights #1

Over the last 3 weeks I have been taking photographs as part of a collaborative project with two amazing poets Graham Nunn and Ashley Martin.  My part of this project is to take a photograph inspired by what is happening in my part of the world between the hours of 6pm and midnight every Friday Night.  The photograph and the poems are then published alongside each other.  Check out anotherlostshark.com  for the results.  I thought I would also publish a series of the photographs I take each week.   Starting with Week # 1.

Some Things You Should Know

You’ll notice Dad hasn’t parted with the old
washing machine.  He proudly claims it’s the first
automatic.  There’s nothing automatic about it now.
So unless you’re packing enough clothes for the entire trip;
the gumboots and broom handle beside the tub must be used
to avoid electrocution. Make sure you visit the Bobby Dazzler,
there’s a 20ft statue of a fossicker crouching out front.
It’s worth the five dollars, just to wander the underground tunnels and escape
the blistering heat. I hope you like early mornings;
the bottlebrush is in bloom and the lorikeets flock in around 5 am,
for their all day bender.  If this doesn’t wake you, Dad will.

Do you remember when were kids?
From our beds we would listen
to the blueprint of morning;
heavy footsteps making
a cup of tea; the scuff of brush
and polish on boot leather, followed
by the heady waft of his first cigarette.
It’s still the same, still in order.
