GRAYnomad Nature Photography :: Home

Wildlife, landscapes and people from Australia and around the world. I bought my first camera while travelling through the Panama canal in 1972 and I've been taking photographs ever since. I worked in Canberra, London, Perth and for a New York stock library etcetera etcetera and after nearly 50 years I can probably claim to at least know what end of a camera to look through.

Living the dream on the road with Australia's weirdest off-road motorhome. This section is not about a seachange or a treechange, we took the freechange option. On Sunday the 30th of September 2001 we drove our (then) 30-year old ex-army truck from the workshop for the last time. At that point we were officially living on the road. This section of is about our travels in "wothahellizat", Australia's weirdest off-road motorhome.

For twenty years I slaved in the IT industry, just over half of that time was spent designing hardware and embedded systems at assembler and 2GL (2nd generation language) level, and the rest working on high-level fuzzy-logic code at a more 3GL level. Even after I "retired" I never stopped writing PC applications but now I'm also back into designing embedded systems with microcontrollers. So this section of explains what I'm doing in the IT field these days and details some of the projects I'm playing with.

I've written a heck of a lot of stuff over the years, from magazine articals through technical "how tos" and computer manuals to advertising copy. Not to mention 20 years of blogging.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

The Problem is You Think You Have Time. The hours have a way of turning into days, the days into weeks, the weeks into years and the years into a lifetime. How different would your life and your memories be today, ten years later, if you had done that!
