rose grave cemetery Brisbane August 01

You will be forgotten, live now!

A trip to South Brisbane cemetery triggered some sombre reflection about the inevitability of our time on this life coming to an end, and all traces of our existence eventually fading without trace.

Saturday night at the Valley

Random shot from a recent trip to Fortitude Valley here in Brisbane. I sat a flash in the corner and captured people passing as they enjoyed their evening out. While I usually prefer candid shots, I do like the way it turned out when this guy put on a show when he saw the camera.
