Despite the rains, the garden thrives. The cactus took it badly, but the wood fungus is really ornamental.

I haven’t ventured much beyond my backyard these last few years. I’ve photographed everything in the garden. Soon I’m on the road again! More photos will follow.
A few oldies to get back into the swing of it.

This is a song I recorded with my musical partner in crime Dom Di Dato. It’s by an Italian singer called Vinicio Caposella. I’m using the Youtube version because we’ve agreed to pass the royalties (if any) over to the original songwriter. We’re very happy to do that.
The images were all made on Dangar Island, Australia. The edit software is Philmora X, by Wondershare.

Art School – A Song
This is a song I made when I was much much younger. The singer is the wonderful Lizzy Hogan, Ric Grudzinskas played bass, George Sutanovic drums and Linz Norris and myself on guitars. I’ve been making low budget, lo-fi clips to post stuff on Youtube. The images are from my Street Art photo file.
The song is copyright J P Horsam/I M Hogan 1979-2021 as updated. Please refer to my About page for full copyright details regarding the photos.
Yet More Music
I cant travel to get any photos at the moment so I’m making movies in my back garden.

Music From Dangar Island
I started to write the words for this song when I was on the school ferry home to Dangar Island. Nothing has changed there really, same old chaos.

I haven’t been out much in the last year…. I’ve done hardly any photography. However, I have been making lots of music. This is animated by Mel Anderson, some of her Tiny Folk. If you’re very observant you can see them going about their business. Most of them are very shy.
Street Art – Narbonne
As anywhere in France, this city lets art flourish. It’s as much part of the culture as the amazing food. I was planning to be there about now, but alas…. no one’s going anywhere. I can dream. I’ll be back.
Here’s some street art…. as Michelin would say, Narbonne is well worth the detour.
New Family Member
Following the tragically early death of our dear old pooch Hairy, the house seemed quite empty. There was no one to remind us that it was dinner time, all the tasty scraps ended up in the compost bin.
What with COVID, it was very hard to adopt a dog, everybody wanted a new furry friend. We wanted to give a home to a rescue animal, help some old dude have a comfortable retirement.
We came across ‘Greyhounds As Pets’ https://www.gapnsw.com.au/
Wow! Now we have Honey, Lavender Sky to her racing fans. She’s 10, but doesn’t know it. She’s gorgeous… see for yourself!
Some more wonders of the Iron Age, from the UK this time.
I might add more text later, but the new WordPress post editor is a poorly thought out mess at the moment.
