Took a very exciting delivery this morning: a box of RM Williams Publishing’s new book, Animal Tales.

Spent two months earlier this year travelling around Australia working on the book, so it’s great to see the final product.

Animal Tales: Australian pets and the people who love them, is a little hardcover book filled with 50 big-hearted stories about pets and their owners across this great land, brought to life with amazing photos on every page. Animal Tales would make the ideal gift for animal lovers, pet owners or just those seeking out great yarns.

Yarra Valley wedding

Shot a beautiful wedding yesterday at Panton Hill Winery in the Yarra Valley.

Tricky weather made shooting a challenge, but also added plenty of contrast and drama in the sky.

Off and racing

Travelled up to Patchewollock in Victoria's northern Mallee region for the weekend for the Patchewollock Music Festival.

The music was great, but the highlight was the annual Patchewollock Sheep Cup.

Twenty-five mallee sheep and their trainers battling out for a gold cup and $200 cash. 

Classic country entertainment.

Zombies in the streets

In the city today and the place was swamped with zombies.

Don't really understand it myself.

But made for some weird street scenes.

There are so many sights in the city that leave you with unanswered questions.

Under the bridge downtown

Rode out to Footscray yesterday on the pushie.

Very windy, but got a cool look at the Bolte Bridge from beneath.

Woooosha

Met former West Coast Eagles coach and dual premiership captain John "Woosha" Worsfold yesterday morning.

Shot Woosha for a story that ran today in The West Australian.

Great bloke. 

Footy fever

Back in Melbourne town and footy fever is high.

Dockers and Hawks scarfs everywhere downtown.

Love this city.

The colours of Palermo

Posted on Thursday, 19 September 2013 22:54 by .

Back in Buenos Aires today after ten days in Bariloche (Patagonia) and then Mendoza.

Staying in Palermo Soho, a combination of Melbourne's inner city and the gritty inner suburbs of Fitzroy and Brunswick.

Fashion boutiques, restaurants, cafes and street art everywhere. 

Very cool.

Foxy Andes

Posted on Wednesday, 18 September 2013 22:49 by .

Hired a car and drove up into the Andes today, just east of Mendoza, Argentina.

Unfortunately, melting snow closed the mountain road we were hoping to travel on.

But at least the winter sun meant we got to glimpse this fella strolling along the warm road.
