First of all, I’d like to apologise to all for the lack of updates over the past few weeks, it’s been far from normal. Yesterday I dropped off a few rolls of film to get developed which were taken over the past couple of months. Thats one thing I absolutely love about film is the surprise of how the images turned out when they’re processed and what they’re actually of.
I’m sure the majority of you are familiar with Brisbane’s floods over this past week. I’ve had people contacting me from the other side of the globe so I take it the news was broadcasted everywhere. Today, being the 5th day with no power, at 9:00AM this morning it clicked back on. This week my house and estate where completely isolated as all the homes, businesses and shops were completely submerged by the raging currents from the Brisbane River. I am so thankful everyone is okay. Considering whats happened this week I can’t believe the number of people getting there hands dirty with smiles on their faces, with attitudes like this all this mess will be cleaned up in no time.
The news announced this morning that over the course of summer we are going to see up to 9 cyclones hit the south-east coast, the weatherman stated ‘With all this water still laying around and king tides and cyclones forecast, prepare for the worst’ I guess we can only prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
