This short video is about a tree in Western Australia but it could be a tree in your back yard.

Logo Journal

An interesting exercise for my Visual Communications unit. These are the logos I am presented with in the first one and half hours of a typical day. I wonder how much it says about who I am.

A great idea

I really like this idea for recognising Australia’s Indigenous heritage. I think it will be a great landmark for Melbourne.

Here is a series of photographs I produced for my Marking Time project in MCC124 Photography and Digital Imaging.  MCC124 is a great unit, if you get the opportunity I would really recommend giving it a go.

Landmark court decision in Western Australia

A LANDMARK court decision has found a Perth nursing home should follow the wishes of a quadriplegic man who wants to die and stop feeding him.

In the West Australian Supreme Court, Chief Justice Wayne Martin said the Brightwater Care Group would not be criminally responsible by ceasing nutrition and hydration through a tube to the stomach of Christian Rossiter, a 49-year-old in their care.

Chief Justice Martin also said any person providing palliative care to Mr Rossiter would not be criminally responsible.

He said it was clear Mr Rossiter had the right to direct his treatment and nutrition and hydration “should not be administered against his wishes.”

First human landing on the moon

July 19, 2009 - 15:20

July 20, 2009, marks the 40th anniversary of the first human landing on the moon.

At the risk of revealing just how old I am, I can clearly remember this momentous event. I was in year four or five at Ben Venue primary school in Armidale NSW. The entire school crowded into one classroom to watch the landing on the school’s only television.

Thinking back to this time released a cascade of memories which has left me going through the bittersweet exercise of ‘googling’ my classmates names from all those years ago.

Anyway, here is my little commemorative gallery to celebrate the anniversary. Click on any of the thumbnails to view the full size gallery.
