It's Getting Hot in Here

29 Sep 2019
The thing is with working on the road is that you need the good ol' Internet. Which, of course, can only come from the mobile network; satellite options are still ridiculously expensive and slow. And when it comes to mobile coverage, Telstra is usually the best, even if in some places Optus takes the upper hand. I've heard about their “regional hub” program, and while studying their coverage map, I was pleasantly surprised to see a spot at the Kings Canyon Resort. Perfect, thought I! Right next to one of the most-known wonders of the MacDonnell Rages, which I still haven't seen yet throughout my journeys! A perfect opportunity from every possible angle.

Uluru, Kata Tjuta, and Other People

24 Sep 2019
On Tuesday evening, I suddenly realise that I could go and see the Fields of Light, while I'm here. In case you're reading this and the link died, it's a project by some artist whose name now escapes me, and it consists of a huge (three football fields) area covered with LED lights, slightly raised above ground and changing colours slowly. Add to that the starry sky on top of you, and you could get yourself quite an experience.

Journey to the Center of Australia

21 Sep 2019
The night between Friday and Saturday sees me at some rest stop between Barmera and Burra. Well, it could have seen me, if it wasn't so dark and dusty. The sky is completely overcast, and there's a strange suspension of very fine dust in the air, which I can't really smell, but I can see it in the beam of my torch everywhere I go. It's quite windy, too, and very humid. Interesting combination of the elements. During the night it rains a bit, but the morning is nice and sunny and calm.

Extremes and Wonders of Lake Bonney

16 Sep 2019
Well, here I am now, at the start of my first working week as a digital hobo. All I have is a laptop, a spare battery under the hood, a couple of solar panels, and a few bits and pieces to create the illusion of necessary creature comforts. Let's see if it all holds until Friday, shall we?

The Digital Hobo Begins

14 Sep 2019
Well, this has finally happened. I'm moving out without moving in. No rent to pay, no utilities to care about, and no fixed address — apart from the one my friend lent me very graciously, so that I'd have something to put on my driver's licence.

An Interview for WallMag

9 Jul 2019
For those interested in my humble beginnings and slightly less humble exploits as a photographer, here's a little interview that I gave to a certain website. Just in case it eventually disappears from the World Wide Web, I'll quote it here in its entirety.

Vivid Sydney: Taronga Zoo and the CBD Area

10 Jun 2019
As we've found out previously, there's plenty to see around Sydney when the Vivid festival is on. During several days, I visited a few corners of the city to see what was actually going on. So let's conclude this journey and see how the Taronga Zoo is doing!

Vivid Sydney: Circular Quay and Darling Harbour

3 Jun 2019
For three weeks every year, between 6 and 11 p.m., the centre of Sydney transforms. The Harbour Bridge all lights up; the Opera House is covered in gigantic animations; all kinds of installations, big and small, interesting or not, but all of them bright and colourful, pop up here and there at the streets. This is Vivid: a mother lode for a light effects aficionado, and an interesting opportunity for a photographer such as myself.

The Three Sisters and Other Wonders of the Blue Mountains

31 Mar 2019
Two months of no photography at all is way too much time with no photography at all. Enough is enough! Time to hit the road again, and even if it doesn't take me as far as it often does, there still will be opportunities to capture a good landscape or two. If the scenery, weather, and my own travelling plans all come together, that is.

The Sweltering Way Home

12 Jan 2019
To go back home, I decide to take a slightly longer road via Broken Hill out of sheer curiosity, because I've never been there before. As I leave Melrose, the scenery is still familiar (I've been a few times to this part of South Australia), but after I cross the NSW border, it's all new to me.
