THE BONNY HILLS EXPRESS. AUSTRALIA.

We had to wait just past Newcastle for my little brother who was attending university there at the time who was hitching a ride up north. Couldnt help but shoot a selfy by this field. The drive back up was amazing and that crazy city starting with an S behind us, the weekend now only a hazey memory.

ROYAL NATIONAL PARK. SYDNEY. AUSTRALIA.

I love leaving Sydney city, driving 45 mins south and going down to this waterhole that we found deep in the center of the park. It use to be used regularly by local Aboriginal people as a resting place. I camped there one night and just before we put the fire on some weird guy emerged from the bush with a machete and 1 flipper. He completely ruined the good pre fire camp vibes and the rest of the night was a bit of a shamozal, sleeping in and out of caves dodging rain and being chased by some lingering dream time spirits.
It was also my little brothers 21st birthday around this time which was insanely wild. No photos as I was busy being the token older idiot brother.

BOTTLE BUTT & BAGO BLUFF. WAUCHOPE. OZ.

I was always super excited for visits from Sophiecita. At the time she was living in Sydney and me 4 hours away up in the hills of Bonnys. We made an adventure out of each weekend getting deep into surrounding nature, sexing in many strange nature spots, seemed toalways be pealing of leeches and as soon as she would arrive it would be goodbye again. 
On this day at Bago Bluff we saw a huge wedge tailed eagle, the largest eagle we have down under. It had a wing span of 3ish meters and soared from way out west to overhead in around 10minutes. But the funny thing is to drive that far it would take well over an hour. Get out of the city and dive into the real world.

TREE WORKS. SWAMPS & LOGS. OZ.

We were working hard as the summer sun cooked our skin. The 'Rangers' (Term for Red headed person in Oz) were cooking double time. Fallen tree removals in swamps, literally swimming under water to hook winch chains on. Large tree felling on rurul lots, toclimbing 40 plus meter trees. A beer in the arvo never tasted so good, usually washed down with some thorough chainsaw maintenance.
