A few more photos can never hurt, especially cat ones:)

 

Rankins Lane

If you can’t paint a girl painting a toucan in Rankins Lane then where can you? Oh, you can? Super!

You might not be able to park there, but you can’t have everything:)

Shot at night, handheld, in case you were wondering.

Wedded Light

As the low evening sun illuminates the Yarra River, a newly wedded couple stroll gracefully, pausing and posing for photos along the way. The bride even posed for a few for me.

There are no tricks here, folks. No HDR, no added lens flare - just a lovely shot of a lovely-looking couple at a lovely time of day.

Surf Alley

Surf Alley, Byron Bay, is home to some pretty cool street art. This is part of what is currently there (June 2018).

The photo is aligned perfectly with the brickwork. If only those pipes were too!

Very Hairy

This photo reminds me of my grandparents because, like this draught horse, they were very hard workers.

Saint Omer

“Ay, you be right thar, Cap’n… There be no prawns for catchin’ up ‘ere!”

The trawler Saint Omer is an iconic feature of the Eat Street Northshore food markets, serving a bounty of seafood to discerning Brisbane diners. Where it once trawled for prawns in the Pacific Ocean it now trawls for customers on specific land.

This photo was taken from aboard 24m luxury charter yacht Pure Adrenalin Charters which is an incredible vessel - both boats are pretty awesome! As it turns out the captain is a friend of the trawler’s former owner and held the ship steady for me so I could get the shot. 1/4 second, handheld, ISO200 night shot taken from a boat afloat - nice!

Broken For Us

A broken figurine of Jesus Christ on a gravestone reminds us of the historical figure crucified two thousand years ago. The writers of the New Testament make it clear that...

Jesus died in our place
To pay the price for our sin
Then He rose from the grave
So we can forever live with Him
~ Geoff Rankin, 2017

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this one is worth countless thousands more.

Random Seagull

Sometimes as you journey down the paths of life, something unexpected will come your way. Maybe it’s a new relationship, a new career, a new idea, or a random seagull. This time it was the seagull.

Didga The Great

Didga, the most talented cat on the planet, chills on a post at the coast. With over 100,000,000 Facebook video views & as the Guiness World Record holder of 'Most Tricks By A Cat In One Minute' she’s proven time and time again she’s absolutely pawsome:)

Boomer takes a break from skateboarding, skimboarding & surfing (check out YouTube & Facebook) to take in some morning sun at the beach. Purrfect:)

Incoming - Ed Force One

The world’s most photographed plane - Ed Force One, the 747 that English heavy metal band Iron Maiden are flying around the world co-piloted by lead singer Bruce Dickinson on their The Book Of Souls World Tour - roars in over the Brisbane city skyline, thus heralding a music feast not likely to be surpassed or repeated in the next few years. No Photoshopping here, folks - this is the one photo. Magic!. Brisbane Airport, 2 May 2016.

Oh, and for any planespotters, this photo wasn't taken from the usual spot, but around the other side of the airport near the fire brigade.

Ed Force One Touching Down

This is the most photographed plane in the world - Ed Force One, the 747 that English heavy metal band Iron Maiden are flying around the world co-piloted by lead singer Bruce Dickinson on their The Book Of Souls World Tour - the moment the front wheel touches down at Brisbane Airport, 2 May 2016.

Oh and for any planespotters, this photo wasn't taken from the usual spot, but around the other side of the airport near the fire brigade.

747 Tail Livery

Just so you’re sure what you’re looking at here, it’s a part of the tail section of Ed Force One, the 747 that English heavy metal band Iron Maiden are flying around the world, co-piloted by lead singer Bruce Dickinson, on their The Book Of Souls World Tour. So as you stare lovingly into the eyes of band mascot Eddie, take a moment to notice the left-hand side of the image - it shows where the rudder joins the vertical stabiliser. And you thought it was just a pretty face:)

Trooper Beer Label - Up Close

Have you ever wondered what a beer label looks like up really close? No? Well here’s your chance. Charge!

The Charge of the Light Brigade was a military disaster but that hasn’t stopped English heavy metal band Iron Maiden & Robinsons Brewery immortalising it in Trooper Beer, an ale developed with the help of lead singer Bruce Dickinson.

So if you buy it, spare a thought for those who paid the ultimate price for their country, and turn the volume up LOUD!

Big Night For Little Ted

I found this teddy bear around the back of the sideshow. I tried to rouse him to make sure he was ok. He wasn’t. His head was spinning, the world was turning, he’d been on one too many rides a few too many times. He insisted he’d be ok so I let him be. I walked past later on - the stuffed pizza was gone - in its place, stuffed vomit. Oh teddy!

Wishing Tree

With a heart-red Story Bridge overhead, two tiny figures chat coyly beneath the glistening leaves of a Brisbane Wishing Tree. Are they wishing for love, for trust, for hope for a future? Whatever it is, our wishes reveal our hearts, shaping us as we make this journey. They are the fears we shake, bad habits we break, the chances we take in life.

River City Morning

The river city of Brisbane, not long after sunrise. This is a single exposure (ie one photo) taken through an angled window. The reflections, rowers & light effects etc are real and haven't been added.

Grounded Cows

Jerm: "I didn't always want to be a cow, you know. When I was younger I wanted to be an astronaut, but now I'm more down to earth. So don't believe all that "cow jumped over the moon" mumbo jumbo. I think most of us have tried doing it at one stage or another without even moderate success. That's just a con-descending tail."

Caged King

This somber & sobering moment in time was taken at the Darling Downs Zoo. In contrast though, all the animals looked good and well-looked after. This included the lions.

Christmas Hope

Hope: At times delicate and dangling by a thread, but it’s precious and always present. Christmas reminds me of that, even if we sometimes get things the wrong way round.
