“Develop your senses – especially learn how to see. Realise that everything connects to everything else.”  — Leonardo Da Vinci

I started taking photography seriously about five years ago when my husband gave me a new DSLR for my birthday and as a lover of both technology and photography, the idea of combining the two was exciting. Once I discovered that there was a wealth of information and tutorials available on the Internet, it was on. I have been interested in photography since a very early age but the opportunities to take it up were never there until now.

Based in Brisbane, Australia, my hometown features the stunning night backdrops, cityscapes and beautiful landscapes found in most of my photography. I enjoy capturing nature at its best, the majestic Story Bridge, city views from the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, and other captivating places in and around my city, as well as the fascinating places I have travelled to.

Capturing the beauty of the world around me on my Nikon D5300 is my passion. We live on a beautiful planet and her beauty deserves to be showcased.

  1. Hello Norma, Thanks for dropping by. I’m glad you enjoyed some of my photographs. I’m especially pleased with the hummingbird too as it is the cleanest shot yet. I looked at your Morton Bay Fig tree shots and absolutely need one in my back yard for a treehouse. Liked the Church House Ruins also and curious if you’ve tried it out in B&W?


    1. Hi Allan, thanks for popping in and thanks for you lovely comments. The church ruins is one of my favourites too and I haven’t tried it in B&W but now that you mentioned it I will have a little play with it. Cheers 🙂


    1. Thanks so much for the lovely compliment Cheryl. I’m still learning and have a long way to go though.
      We’re practically neighbours 😉 Coffs Harbour is such a lovely part of Australia :).

Look for the button with the letter A and click on the dropdown arrow next to it and this will allow you to choose the colour you want to change your text to. Don’t forget to select your text first.

    Great blog and photo’s you have here Norma and always great to meet another Aussy. You are all such wonderful people. 😀 *hugs*


  5. I read your line about photography getting you out & had to laugh. After 43 years of devoting myself to my photography I was out in 49 degree darkness this morning waiting for the sun to rise. I was standing on the edge of a busy two lane highway taking my post shot of the day. When it was all on record I stopped for a restroom break and couldn’t feel my legs I was frozen. I’d do it again in a heartbeat. Welcome to a lifetime of personal satisfaction and gratification. Your works shows a lot of love for the artform that is photography.
