A couple in Adidas track suits


When I took this photograph of a couple of young people dressed in bright red Adidas track suits, caring sky blue Adidas shopping bag I wasn’t sure if they genuinely liked the brand so much or was it a publicity stunt.

I have noticed them from a proverbial “mile away”. It was hard not to see them with all the vivid red clothing. They crossed the road and as they approached me I took a couple of photographs. The knew they were generating attention and seemed to love it.

When they were really close to me I hear them talking. They were Italian tourists, enjoying their holiday in Sydney.

Victorian bushfire appeal 2009


The photo you see here was taken in 2006. It is still vivid in my memory as 12 story high flames appeared on the horizon in front of us.

I did not photograph the current fire in Peats Ridge as it is a no go zone. I advise everyone else to do likewise and let the fire fighters do their job by staying away.

With loss of life in Victoria now reported at 138, and with many people surviving only with a shirt on their back the Australian Red Cross is running a “Victorian bushfire appeal 2009”. Go to their website and donate generously to help the victims of this horrendous fire.
