world house of the year 2011

check out “world house of the year 2011” designed by australian architect damian alvaro… “small house” in sydney takes vertical living to the extreme with one function per floor connected by elegant stairs and no fixed internal walls. there’s even a vegetable garden on the roof. good to see australians leading the way in architecture.

guesting and tripping

cool to be guesting for a photographer whose work i admire. here’s a link:

moreton island – here are some shots from a fortnight ago. it’s such a beautiful place and so close to home, just 1 1/2 hours by ferry. we climbed mt tempest, swam in blue lake, eagles came close and taipans stayed away. ann and barry were inspirational and it was great to hang out with a bunch of photographers who would also only manage a dozen steps before they just had to take a photo.
