Hey everyone! Its been two long months since my last post but finally I have had a decent chance to get the camera back in my hands. Between work and being a dad I have been flat out and spare time has been at a premium. I still manage to look at peoples blogs but don’t get much time to comment at the moment but hopefully soon that will change.

My wife and I decided to get out of the house and risk the chaos that is a screaming baby and take the hours drive to Braidwood just east of Canberra. This may sound trivial but even a trip to the shops has become a major operation these days. I still can’t believe it has been 12 weeks since Mia was born!

Braidwood is a cute little town with plenty of history and for us is normally a quick stop off on the way to or from the coast to have lunch or a snack. It was nice to spend some time in the town for once and have a bit of a look around and enjoy the laid back feel that comes with a country town, hey the waitress at the cafe we had lunch at even babysat Mia while we ate lunch, you don’t get that in the city!

Anyhow here are a few of my favourite photos from Braidwood all taken with the D90 and the Nikkor 35mm f1.8. Hope everyone is well and that 2010 is treating them well.

‘Gas Station’

‘Retro Beauty’

‘Old Boy’
