I am hoping to enter a few photography competitions this year and had an idea to take some shots of some older Australians for a series. Here is my first model! My grandfather Bill is turning 85 this year. He emigrated from the UK 40 years ago but has kept his Midlands accent and still calls people “dook”. He is a farmer at heart and his scruffy dogs always follow him wherever he goes.
In some other news my lovely husband has bought me a gorgeous new lens. The bad news is that it’s my birthday present so I have to restrain myself from using it for the next couple of weeks. It’s a fabulous telephoto lens which will come in handy for our planned trip to Africa in July/August. I can’t wait!
