New Black and White photos on SFP

I’ve added a couple of new Black and White shots to the website.
I’ve been rather slack of late, I will admit it, though I’ve had reasons to be distracted.
Still, here’s a couple:

fish fountain black and white

Herald of the Apocolypse

Well, it seemed like a good title, and it is nearly the end of the world isn’t it 😀 But I think that the title suits this fishy fountain shot, somehow.

Bark Textures

I don’t think I need to explain this title. The patterns form a mesmerizing dreamscape – I can follow those lines for ages!



I took this photo on my last visit to Perth, Western Australia. My dad walks his dog, Boris, around these parts. I am not good with heights (or depths, more correctly) and crossing this bridge gives me the willies, especially with the movement beneath of all the traffic.

This passes over Stock Rd in Coolbellup, into the bush where Boris likes to run around. It was on the way back in the morning that I noticed the pattern from the sunlight. With the main light from the sun ahead, it also gains a particular softness.

It was difficult for me to stand still to take the photo but here it is.

A little industrial ruination


Living in Australia, we don’t exactly have much in the way of ruins. But there are the industrial ruins, like the following ones of the Old Coogee Powerstation in Western Australia.

Of course, there is plenty of graffiti in a place like this, as you have already seen.

And here are some older photos from the old carriage works next to Newtown Train Station. A veritable forest was growing inside, though I think that now they are doing the place up. I was a bit nervous walking around inside, with all the broken windows on the ground and the intact ones rattling in the wind above me.

Fremantle Fishers

Just a quick post – a couple of photos from the Fremantle Fishing Docks of the beautiful fishing boats that were resting there. My wife and I were having fish and chips at Ciccerellos and this was part of the view outside.

They are such a wonderful aquatic colour and I particularly love the contrast with the anchor. The reflections of the water on the boats also delights me. The scene was soft and serene.


More new posts on RedBubble

Some more random posts new to RedBubble. Depending on the response, I will add them to the website (or not).
I have quite the backlog now but I am uncertain as to quality – sometimes it takes not looking at them for a while to realise if they’re any good or not.

Also, I have wanted to do some specific Perth posts, but for the aforementioned problem of not knowing what is good enough to show I might already have done so.

Anyway, here are some new’uns 😀

Some random new posts on RedBubble

I’ve uploaded some of my storehouse of photos onto RedBubble. I’m currently trying to work out how to handle the double – RedBubble and my site. I guess I’ll end up duplicating a lot. Ah well… .

New Architectural Posts

A couple of new shots, the first is the Old Power Station in Coogee, Western Australia, haunt now of graffiti artists and dabblers.

Below: the Centrepoint Tower in Sydney, New South Wales, a great orienting point whenever you are lost in the general inner-city area since it towers above everything else.
