After a very wet winter, the garden is bouncing back. The little lobelia has self seeded itself onto the tree stump, the transplanted rose is coming alive and the carnations just keep going.
Two views from my hotel window. Newton, Sydney, Australia.
Somebody seems to be reading their way through my many posts. Welcome!
The weather is still very dull here, that’s not good for photography. The pix come out as nearly black and white. Still….. images to be got!
Dangar Island low tide and a local magpie, a Brooklyn (NSW) pelican and a colourful shot from my front door.
During the lockdown I became quite productive…. within sight of my house. You get to see the rainy view from the Dangar Island Bowling Club, then my shadow on the beach. I’m behind the camera.
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.

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.
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.
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.
I think I’ve done enough now to count myself a true flaneur. That is, I enjoy an aimless stroll, especially in ancient cities like Paris. I love prowling the older streets…. left over from the rebuilding of the 1870s. Then again, there’s ‘the new’…. in this case, the beautiful cast iron work….
Feast your eyes!
