Ella rocks on

Recently my almost one year old neice Ella has started rocking to music.

Camera practise on Ella

So I’ve been playing with my new camera for a couple of weeks and have done some really really bad photos. Some were overexposed, some were underexposed and a lot were blurry.

The first meeting of my niece

Mater Mothers Hospital is a 40 year old building that still has the 80s telecom (telstra) logo on cupboard doors and the signature institutional look of 60s government buildings. The structure is soon to be demolished to make way for one of those new mega-modern hospitals that appear to be rising phoenix like around Brisbane.
