2015AlexConcert.JPG

My dear mate Alex hosted a popular kid's TV show and took the show on tour. I photographed one of the much loved concerts.

2015Alpaca2015.JPG

Paul and Jakub have a property in the bush and introduced me to Alpacas. Rudely, I referred to them as Llamas.

I mentioned that Taki and I both like Apple products. We embraced the Apple Watch also.

Photograpy as a hobby was becoming more interesting. Here I found a Sulphur Crested Cockatoo in flight.

We had a great Christmas lunch at Donovans restaurant in Melbourne in 2015

Donovans is right on the beach at St Kilda. We had a lovely view on a very hot Summer's day.

I finally caught up with an actress that I had a ball working with. Elaine Smith now lived in another state but we managed to catch up. Great fun.

Taki and I went to Healsville Wildlife Sanctuary in 2016. This adorable Koala sat happily above us.

One of the big gay festivals here in Melbourne is Midsumma. Thousands of people in all manner of fun and wackiness.

My dear friend Helen, from the swimming pool, sadly passed away in 2017. She gave me this cutting of 'Nodding Violet' and now I have a beautiful hanging basket of the plant as a memory of her.

2015pool.JPG

I surprised Taki with a tiny swimming pool for his birthday. Sadly the water stayed cold for a while that Summer. Brrrrr....

2015southeastmen.jpg

We started a group for gay men in the South East Suburbs. Great fun while it lasted but a lot of work.

Dear friends Darryl and John. They now have a country property to look after, also.

I was lucky to capture this Rainbow lorrikeet in my Flowering Eucalypt tree. Gorgeous colours.

Photography again and this time the moon from our backyard.

Close by are the Dandenong Ranges and Sherbrooke Forest. This tree fern had a guest living with it.

A beautiful native orchid grew happily in the bark and old branches of the tree fern.
