66 shades of grey

66 shades of grey
66 shades of grey ... this pic of me was shot by Kim, of Kim Thomsen's Photography at Daly Waters in the Northern Territory. Kim just wandered over and asked whether it was OK to get some character shots.


The cross is in front of the church in Karumba and it seems TV antennas have a greater reach for the sky.


I went fishing out of Nhulunbuy on the Gulf of Carpentaria. We anchored in a bay about 10 hours from Nhulunbuy and went ashore. This poor fella had been snared in the locals' overnight net and then had a run-in with the resident 14-foot saltwater croc - named Nike by the local indigenous fellas - and came off second best.

What a tough place to live ... this is out on the Oodnadatta Track

G’day, I’m Michael and I have two fantastic grown-up kids. I’m a jeans and singlet/T-shirt, cowboy boot, tattoos sort of fella, who knows a bit about this and sometimes a lot about that. I'll have a crack at most things, although having a relationship? ... well that ship has sailed. I'm past my use-by date anyway, so I'm gonna make it all about me and surviving life as I know it ... or make it.

Beasts, bits'n'bobs,

 Shapes of all kinds ... there's kinda a bit of moonscape if you forget the water.
I just like the symmetry.
 Just shapes that I like.
 Is it a very old sandal print etched into rock or maybe a fishy thing ...
People pay shitloads to have ponds such as this is their gardens ...
 OK, I reckon this beast got snap-frozen in time when he crawled out of the water ...
 A nice round thing ... maybe even an egg cup, y'now a dinosaur egg cup 
 My favourite ... a jellyfish in a rock pool ... it has a McDonald's M (I reckon it's for Mick) proving the the golden arches have been around for longer than we thought.
 Again, straight out of the water and frozen in time ...
 Just nice things ...
 The sea was angry that day, my friends ... although quiet in the pool
 A croc, no doubt, and long before the footwear came along ...
 Surely, Like me, you can see the giant lizard ...
 OK, something I may wear in my hair ...
 An ancient rock painting? Or too much booze for the photographer ... Yeah, like that'll ever happen.

The dog that did this is the straightest walking dog around ...
A very old brain embedded in the rocks ..
