The time has come to talk about leaving. After nearly two years, my sojourn in Singapore is coming to a close. But, before I talk about where I’m going, I want to say a few things about this city I still call home. The place of expats and foreigners in…

The sign you see above is a little decoration I’ve created for my studio. Actually, it’s not quite that little. At 12 inches by 8 inches and mounted on 1 inch think acrylic, it’s a substantial little reminder of one of my favourite personal mantras: Don’t Complain – Make Art….

Last night I was out on the beach photographing here in Adelaide. It was a bit of a frustrating evening. As often happens, I met some interesting people and had some nice conversations. But, the clouds were not co-operating, and I couldn’t get the image I was looking for. After…
