Right before G20 kicked off Brisbane hosted the largest colour festival in Australia, a few people said it was the biggest in the world but Oz keeps claiming it has the largest of things and whenever I Google them it turns out to be wrong. The festival was focusing on multiculturalism with each musician coming … Continue reading I Went to Australia’s Largest Colour Festival
2019 Update: I don't know why this post has no words, I probably uploaded them drunk, considering the quality of the images this wouldn't surprise me. Side note: I remember this being a great night with great company.
At Careers Australia, once a month each team is encouraged to decorate their pods based on a season theme, this month it was Halloween and our team decided to go full Walking Dead. With a budget of 0 Dollars and not too much time to spend on setting them up, you can forgive the amateurish … Continue reading Halloween Themed Office Decorations
It was beautiful, at first I thought that snorkelling was really hard and that everybody around me that was doing it successfully was a champion but it turned out I had a broken snorkel, which made taking quality photos really hard, drowning and concentrating generally don't go hand in hand. 2019 Edit: I have fixed … Continue reading I Took a Dip in the Great Barrier Reef
I can honestly say that Fraser Island is the most beautiful place I have ever been, it's one of the largest sand islands in the world and the only sand island in the world with it's own rainforest. I spent an amazing few days on the island and met a group of beautiful people. The … Continue reading Fraser Island
I have one rule that I always abide by when taking pictures: Take as many pictures as possible and then pick the best, I'm sure I'm not the only person to use this method but a lot of people on social media break the rule and share every single shitty picture that they've taken. Whilst … Continue reading 670 Photos of Fraser Island in 80 Seconds
Whilst living in Brisbane, every traveller that I spoke to said 'you HAVE to go Byron Bay' this may be a case of something being so hyped up that it couldn't possibly have met up with my expectations, but in all honesty I didn't know what to expect, just that there is a hippy vibe … Continue reading Byron Bay is the Artistic Equivalent of a Dog Being Sick.
The second and last set of photos of car parks in Brisbane as I no longer live there, I only created this series to test my new camera but I've learned that I prefer night photography over day photography and I love the rigidness of urban areas, if I can make car parks look interesting … Continue reading My Love For Indoor Car Parks Part Deus
I met so many great people during my stay in Brisbane, most of them were the friendliest, happiest, most intriguing and creative people I have ever met in my life. I wish I could have known them for longer but the curse of travelling is you meet amazing people and you always have to say … Continue reading QLD Confidants (Photos)
I have recently developed a liking for skating in and the photographing of numerous indoor car parks across Brisbane, the subject matter is grey, concrete, dull, boring and simply serving of a necessary purpose of placing vehicles in a temporary stasis. I'm drawn to these building because accessing them is incredibly easy, the floors are … Continue reading My Love For Indoor Car Parks
This weekend I decided to go to my first Comic-Con, I have never been a huge comic book fan, I did used to read The Beano and I also used to borrow graphic novels from the library which I enjoyed but never once did I buy a Spider-Man/Batman/Superman comic when I was a kid, of course I … Continue reading I Went to Oz Comic-Con and it Sucked Balls (Photos)
If you follow me on Facebook you may remember this status about my weird new landlord of the house share that I am in: Turns out that he did get a bit weird. Fortunately I still have my liver intact. When we first moved in he said to us "Mark an X next to your … Continue reading Our live-in landlord sent me an email
On Saturday our friend Nick Jones started a new job driving a Green Taxi. Apart from having to put down a large deposit on the bike (no jumping them off ramps) they seem like the perfect job for backpackers, getting healthy and meeting new people. Nick invited me and Donna to take a ride on … Continue reading A Short Trip With Nick Jones
I am basing this realisation solely on the gig I went to last night. Last year in Manchester I saw La Dispute play, with Pianos Become the Teeth supporting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9kg_pe-lUU La Dispute are a post-hardcore punk band with the vocalist Jordan Dreyer paying impressive attention to detail to his heart-wrenching story driven lyrics. You could summarise them as "Emo" … Continue reading Brissies have better music taste than Mancunians
2019 Edit: I appear to have lost these images, something I didn't realise I had done. Oops. They weren't very good anyway. Who knew? Me and Donna went to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary which was fucking awesome albeit slightly expensive ($33 entry and $16 for a photo opportunity with a Koala). We got to hold a Koala, … Continue reading Metal/Punk Bands Fucking Love Koalas
