When I told Dad that we should go for a walk along the tide pools I thought it was weird that he was wearing jeans and not shorts. But as they say, respect your elders, so I let him be. Well really I asked him why he wasn’t wearing shorts at least 3 times but gave up after that.
The town of Katoomba, the heart of the Greater City of Blue Mountains, is a breeding ground for eccentric characters, poets, artists, environmentalists and numerous others of the same general vein. Suffice to say the mix of relaxed hippie vibes, historic houses and new found wealth from Sydney weekenders leads for some interesting streets.
The following is a brief typology of Katoomba houses.
When I saw this Valiant I was in the car with my parents and brothers in North Melbourne and we were kinda lost, so I told them to pull over and figure out where we were… I promptly got out, walked across the road and took a few photos.
The last few months of the year always the fastest. Once the monotony of winter ends and the and the spark of spring turns up, everyone is excited to go out and get some.

I can’t say it’s any different for me, here are a few shots from the last week.
Roughly every five years my mum’s family, the Thomson clan, has a huge reunion with long lost cousins from across Australia and this week we’re headed down to Geelong to see what the hubbub is all about. Next week I’ll be in Melbourne seeing my brothers and then camping near Eden with my dad, so expect some radio silence.
Here’s a photo of Nick being stoked on an eagle visiting us at lunch the other day to get you through. Back soon!
The Tinderry range, characterised by huge granite monoliths and dominated by Tinderry and Tinderry Twin peaks, rises abruptly from cleared and undulating hills east of Michelago. Sounds perfect for a Sunday stroll.
