What is it like to have a daughter who is engaged?

The second one just proposed to her boyfriend – and he said yes.

Interesting times.

There are now rings on fingers, lots of conversations and plans being made for weddings – even though the projected date is September 2018.

Here are some pics I did for them to commemorate the engagement.

Some recent photos I am pretty proud of

I shoot a lot – and well over 1.2 million photos. So its rare that i get a photo that to me is outstanding – though I do love what I do and I work hard on every shoot. Still there are moments when you just know you got a photo that is amazing. At least to me.

So here’s some work I am particularly proud of. Seems to be a common theme that most of them were shot on the Canon 85mm F1.8 prime lens.

Will the NBN kill TV as we know it?

Last week I chatted with Philippe Perez from Melbourne’s 3CR Breakfast Radio show about the coming National Broadband Network (NBN). He had referred me to this investment article in the Sydney Morning Herald.

nbnco-larger-logoMy comments to him can be listened to in the podcast below.

Some of my notes:

  • investment perspective rather than viewers
  • ROI is important and drives investment decisions
  • government requirement for free to air broadcast
  • three important changes
  • prime time TV viewing will drop
  • rise of citizen broadcasting
  • choice and on demand TV availability
  • depth of catalogue of on demand outweighs the scheduled broadcast offerings

Australia’s Labor government is about to start stealing money off us with a Carbon Tax – explained away by insisting that global warming is caused by human emitted CO2. The video here shows the fallacy of this “science”.
