View from a Bridge – Southgate, Grafton Region. The turn off to Ulmarra Ferry.
Memories of Brighton-Le-Sands Baths. A study from a project devoted to life on the shores of Botany Bay in the 1940’s, 50’s, and 60’s – things that have gone completely, or are going. When built, the Baths was the largest in the Southern Hemisphere, and the focus of many Sydneysiders. New priorities, neglect, and irresponsible dredging of the bay floor for airport extentions undermined many things; and threaten still- the seagrass of Towra Point – the breeding grounds of the Bay.
Afternoon Rain – Lake Hiawatha – Wooli Region. Fresh water trapped behind the ancient dunes – Paperbark forests – Banksias, Flannel Flowers, Emus, Rainbow Honeyeaters, Dingoes, and Goannas.

Breakwater – Wooli Bar -Early morning, incoming tide. A toothy mandible heading out into the Pacific with a green light as its figure head.
The Last Gardens at Kyeemagh. Captain Cook thought the “Water Meadows” on the north western edge of Botany Bay would feed the colony to be. A mirage. Now the Ariport expands – the Cooks River deverted – the Chinese Vegetable Gardens absorbed into suburbia, real estate, sports zones.
Ulmarra Ferry, Crossing.Clarence River, Grafton Region. Travelling this way – to the western bank, leaves the mad speed, noise and threat of the Pacific Highway behind – such a contradictory name.
From Within the Matchwood Forest. An eerily geometric Poplar plantation beside the Clarence River. Made uneconomic by the march of time, these groves are gradually being destroyed and returned to agriculture.
