Our daughter, Claire Elise, was born on October 29, 2009. Here’s a photo of her, and another with her proud family.
My parents chose an “interesting” time to move to Cairns. It was the weekend of January 10-11, and Far North Queensland had been absolutely drenched by the storm systems accompanying Cyclone Charlotte. Cairns was isolated due to flooding, and parts of Cairns itself were underwater. The city, along with many other councils across the Far Read more about Parents go north[…]
Karen has a very critical eye when it comes to photos, especially her own photos. In order to let a few more of her snaps see the light of day, I’ve created an album in my gallery called Karen’s Rejects. This also saves me from having to take my own pictures. It contains a small Read more about The ones Karen rejected[…]
Karen has finally replaced her decrepit, shamefully out-of-date “web site” (which she created using Microsoft Word – Microsoft Word, people!) with a shiny new photo blog.

On Saturday we had planned to take Xander to Tamborine Mountain for a walk in the rainforest. Little did we know that most of the routes (if not all the routes) up to the mountain were closed due to flooding. The photos below show the flooded Clutha Creek near the small town of Tamborine. We Read more about Trip to Tamborine Mountain aborted[…]
2007 was a huge year for my family and me. The main event was, of course, the birth of our son, Xander, on 07/07/07. For that reason, 2007 is one of the best years on record, but also one of the most challenging. Karen’s done a wonderful job and made some pretty big sacrifices… Unfortunately Read more about Goodbye 7, hello 8[…]
