Today I was in an email chain at work around the way they have been doing things and how laid back they had been with security.  In the process I added a throwaway line at the end of the email which may just be an original quote... 

"To allow mediocrity is to be mediocre"

Google search says that I can claim it as mine :)

The associated image is the antithesis of mediocrity.  Determination.  This little guy was photographed at Kinglake about 10 minutes before the peleton arrived for the Herald Sun Tour in 2017

Word of the day - Books

In this case me in a book.  This was created for selfie Sunday back in the G+ days.  The theme this particular week was free choice so I asked Penny to set me a theme she said in a book.  This is the result.  It turns out that it is quite difficult to make something look like it is on a page and was always on a page.  I need a little more blur on the portrait

Word of the day - Art

This is what it is like in Melbourne today...

This image was drawn on the path leading to the Exhibition buildings here in Melbourne.  I cleaned it up in an editing package once I got home.  Original image 2018

Updated my internet connection today...  Apparently a HFC connection can go quite fast if you let it

Aussie Broadband #FTW

If you want to sign up use the link.  I get $50 off my next bill and so do you

Even if you don't they provide an excellent service.  I have been with them for a couple of years now.  I can't fault them :)  I did the upgrade myself from their online portal and it just worked.

Word of the day - Leisure

This was from a vintage tennis shoot I was part of at Kooyong lawn tennis.  The former home of the Australian open.

Winter is coming

This is an image that I created back in 2017 for a scavenger hunt.  The word was winter and of course we were in the middle of a very hot Australian summer.  Sometimes you need to improvise.  

The bear was drawn free hand and photographed then printed on a sheet of paper.  This was then scrunched up to add shadows and highlights.  It was then torn and laid out on a glass table to simulate icebergs
