Fashion should be fun and with my photography I love to create those fun moments.


Paris > Dubai QF8072

It's been just over a year now since my last post

Ready to leave Paris, March 2020.
Why post this now, why not post for a year ? Well, by the time I got back to Sydney I had to go from airport, straight to car and drive to Dion's Birthday in the Victorian Alps ( no phone reception - thanks Vodafone ) and from there to Melbourne for Melbourne Fashion Festival -this when all that was being talked about was this virus taking hold called Covid-19, cases were going up but the show was going on, until the morning the formula 1 race drivers called it and decided it was irresponsible to hold the event with 10's of thousands spectators expected to come down to the racetrack, 4 hours later , the remaining scheduled shows for Melbourne Fashion festival were cancelled as well, so I drove back to Sydney, where I would normally have taken the time to catch up on updating the posts on my blog, with this flight and all the great travel photos I took on the road trip to Victoria......but, it just did not feel right with the rest of the world going into lockdown for me to then start posting photos of travel. so I decided to wait a month, then another month, and well, yeah, by 6 months I stopped thinking about it, but now 1 year later, I feel it's time to catch up with my posts.
It might not agree with some of you out there and say it is too early, but please, direct your anger then at companies like British Airways, advertising air travel, when they are still in the middle of a pandemic, so why would you encourage your citizens to travel all over Europe. That to me feels more irresponsible, or desperate, or both
Anyway, I thought after one year and 2 weeks, time for me to share my posts with you again, starting with slowly catching up with the past year
Starting with this flight I was so happy to be on at the time, with fear of the COVID spreading fast and Italy going into lockdown, being in Paris, I could not wait to get on this flight and head homebye bye Paris at the time, the thought of not returning here for another year, was not even a consideration, I really thought I would be back here for the men and couture shows in June the Alps Near Luzern Lake Zurich Austria on the left then the Rhine River bordering Switzerland on the right Austria Near Innsbruck I've said it before, I would love to spend a whole winter season one time in an Alpine village, just experience and document it all winter is here Turkey ? seen this crater before still in Turkey I think heading to Iraq mount Arafat ?
