July 16th 2009

it's been a while since i updated...
wasn't sure if anyone was still visiting
have been a wee bit busy...

so here is a condensed version of my week -
in pics!

a visit to chinatown resulted in the discovery of some bizarre foodstuffs
such as 'vegetarian mushroom fluff' (?!)

followed on Wednesday by a stroll through the Valley

yesterday involved an impromptu return to work due to
a co-worker succumbing to flu

and today...

well today was the *rehearsal*
for the wedding of my friend Michele

*that* wedding
the one i am photographing


the site is beautiful...
beachside at noosa

and i did a wee bit of *practice*

hoping to get some awesome shots on the Big Day
