My host sister here in Argentina works at a local community centre that I’ve visited multiple times. An old converted train station, La Redonda is now an art and public centre that’s open on the weekends and during holidays. It’s great for kids, with plenty of arts and crafts activities located along the walls, and also […]

Last weekend we decided to hop the ditch and take a weekend over in Sydney, Australia. One of the first things we did was to buy a few new camera lenses, and I had plenty of fun over the weekend trying out my new wide-angle lens (Canon 24mm) on some of the Sydney textures we saw. […]

Across the bay from us is Shakespear Park, and my mum and I often go there to take photos. Because I really enjoy taking close up photos, I thought today I would post a few shots of my Shakespear textures and close ups. I took these photos with a Canon 70D, which I am quite enjoying […]

These last few weeks we’ve been very busy, with back-to-back camps and starting up schoolwork again, so there is plenty of new news. Recently, I was invited to join a Photography course at the local college (high school), and I’m really excited about it. I’ve already taken a few classes, and it seems very interesting. We also went camping […]
