Stronger
Kelly Clarkson

You think you got the best of me
Think you had the last laugh
Bet you think that everything good is gone
Think you left me broken down
Think that I'd come running back
Baby you don't know me, 'cause you're dead wrong
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone

A few months back, one of my favourite shoot locations, Potter Point, got badly burned during a bush fire, which happend well before bushfire season. I flew in directly over it a few weeks back, on my way home from Samoa, and to see it from the air was devestating. I have been trying to get in to photograph it since, but it has been closed by the National Parks since it happened. Today, myself and paul took a chance, and we arrived to find the gate opened as per pre fire, so we were back in business. As I was searching around in the darkness and the soft sand for a clear comp of the lighthouse, I noticed splatterings of colour throughout the burnt scrub, so I thought making one of these little gems the "hero" of the image would be the way to go. It wont be long before the burnt areas regenerate, and it will be like the fire never occured. Thats the strength of the Aussie bush for you right there.
Hope you like "Stronger"....cheers, Mike

A Kind Of Magic
Queen

One dream, one soul,
One prize, one goal.
One golden glance of what should be.

It's a kind of magic.

One shaft of light that shows the way.
No mortal man can win this day.

It's a kind of magic.

The bell that rings inside your mind
Is challenging the doors of time.

It's a kind of magic.

The waiting seems eternity.
The day will dawn of sanity.

Is this a kind of magic?
(It's a kind of magic.)
There can be only one.
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be done.

This flame that burns inside of me.
I'm hearing secret harmonies.

It's a kind of magic.

I've had this image in my head for a few years now, and never got round to trying it, till last night. This is a 3 image composite. The grass in the foreground to the centre was shot at Bombo a few months back, as the rising sun was hitting it. The trees and the fog were shot in Blackheath in the Blue Mountains, during a weekend away with a few of the lads to Lake Windermere. The deer, I bought off the net, althought if I was a good enough photographer, I could have used one from one of my own images taken in Ireland late 2016, but the old hands were a bit jittery on the morning I was shooting the deer in Killarney national park, and lets just say they werent as much in focus as I would have liked....hence having to buy one on the net. Anyhow, I'm quite happy with how this turned out, as its very close to the image I have bouncing around inside this head of mine.
Hope you like "A Kind Of Magic""
Cheers, Mike

Angel Of The Morning
The Pretenders Version

Maybe the sun's light will be dim
And it won't matter anyhow.
If morning's echo says we've sinned,
Well, it was what I wanted now.
And if we're victims of the night,
I won't be blinded by the light.

Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby.
Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Then slowly turn away,
I won't beg you to stay with me
Through the tears of the day,
Of the years, baby baby baby.

This is a reworked 8 shot pano from a few years back. Shot from Mrs Macquaries chair in Sydneys botanical gardens. The sun had only just broken the horizon, over my shoulder. I love shooting away from the rising or setting sun....sometimes the best light is happening in these parts of the sky and on buildings. Hope you like "Angel Of The Morning"...cheers, Mike

Fish In The Jailhouse
Tom Waits

Peoria Johnson told Dirty Ol' Joe
I can break out of any old jail, you know
The bars are iron, the walls are stone
All I need me is an old fishbone

Fish in the jailhouse tonight, all right, oh boy
They're serving fish in the jailhouse tonight, all right, oh boy
They're serving fish in the jailhouse tonight, all right, oh boy
They're serving fish in the jailhouse
Fish in the jailhouse tonight

[?] hammerhead shark
Well, a steelhead salmon or a mud bank carp
I said, one side dull, and then the other side sharp
And on Saturday night I'll be in Central Park

Fish in the jailhouse tonight, all right, oh boy
They're serving fish in the jailhouse tonight, all right, oh boy
They're serving fish in the jailhouse tonight, all right, oh boy
They're serving fish in the jailhouse
Fish in the jailhouse tonight

Headed off over to the North Shore this morning at 3:45am. Bit of a hike, but worth it. Went to shoot the pool at Collaroy, and came away with a shot of a stormwater pipe instead...
This is a 9 min exposure of the pipe....didnt really have to do much here, just set the camera, and had a chat for 9 mins with my mate Stephane...that was pretty much it.
Hope you like "Fish In The Jailhouse"...Cheers, Mike

Hells Bells
AC/DC

I'll give you black sensations up and down your spine
If you're into evil you're a friend of mine
See the white light flashing as I split the night
Cause if good's on the left then I'm sticking to the right
I won't take no prisoners won't spare no lives
Nobody's puttin' up a fight
I got my bell I'm gonna take you to hell
I'm gonna get ya satan get ya

Hells bells
Hells bells, you got me ringing
Hells bells, my temperature's high
Hells bells

Hells bells, satan's coming to you
Hells bells, he's ringing them now

Those hells bells, the temperature's high
Hells bells, across the sky
Hells bells, they're taking you down
Hells bells, they're dragging you under
Hells bells, gonna split the night
Hells bells, there's no way to fight

Hells bells
