New Country, who dis?

I moved back to Australia for the first time since early 2016. in that time I lived in Malaysia, Samoa, China and New Zealand. I had grand plans to stay in each place longer but as the saying goes "life's what happens whilst your busy making other plans".

Not every experience in those four places was perfect, but the body of work was a lifetime lived in 4 years. I could wax lyrically about various places and people, nights out, work life, living in furnished apartments and hotel rooms, being flush and on the bones of my ass, great images and tough days. It was all part of the journey. I have regrets but at the time I was doing exactly what I wanted to do. The best thing about photography is for a brief time you can capture it and it can never go away. Even if over time you're memory fades.

I've been back in Australia since December. I'd love to go on at least one more crazy weird adventure but that will have to wait. Staying in place, regardless of a pandemic is actually a good idea for now. I can't keep running around chasing these adventures ALL the time. The great thing is they are all still out there, new ones and old ones worth a second look. It's all still waiting to be explored. Being now in a vast, enormous, diverse, beautiful nation I have plenty to explore right here when the opportunity is right.

These are four of my favourite images from my life overseas. One for each of the countries I briefly called home. They all have different meanings those meanings will always be a special part of my travels.
