Which Way Next?


My architectural photography work has been recognized with an honorable mention in the Buildings – Architecture category in the Lucie Foundation’s 2013 International Photography Awards. Taken back in 2011 at the end of a European trip (where we saw Cadel Evens win Australia’s first ever Tour de France – but that’s another story) as we […]
