Those familiar you may have noticed a few minor changes to the site. Waxlyric now has an official landing page complete with a rotating slideshow of my personal favourite photographs and paintings, which will be updated regularly to reflect my creative moods and tastes. As well the about section of the site has been refreshed with a new portrait and profile story. Much shorter than the one I was running previously – short and sweet.
The biggest change made and the most important is the increased size of the content column which will now serve up images at a beautiful 600 pixels wide, the perfect size for enjoying comfortably my art and photography online. By the way for those who didn’t already realise, you can still click each photograph for an enlargement, which I highly recommend when perusing!
No blog post here comes without some visual stimulation, so here you go a magnificent sunrise on Flinders Beach, Stradbroke Island, shot a while back on a surf/camping mission!

Situated on the northern coast of NSW, Evans Head, a small quaint coastal community of friendly sea spirited people, one of the few towns left untouched along this vast stretch of coastline.
We had the privilege of taking a week away and sheltering down in a friends family beach shack. A week of no distractions, no phones, computers or televisions. Just a week of surfing, eating healthy, exercising and relaxing. A week which felt like a month to be honest.
With our present day, fast pace lifestyles, it is important we don’t forget to take time out, reflect and just take a look around, for what is here today wont necessarily be tomorrow. This is my ode to Evans Head and the simple things in life.
Above a short film and below a selection of stills I shot which best summarizes our time passed at Evans… Enjoy!
Good friends and USA residents Carla and Todd, travelled back to Australia to renew their vows for family and friends in a picturesque beach ceremony on Gold Coast’s North Burleigh beach.
Along with my usual DSLR getup I packed a Polaroid SX-70 loaded with some expired TZ-Artistic film to give another take on the day. Film when coupled with digital shots gives something a little more intimate and unique… as well when framed 2up make a great gift!
I hope you enjoy some of these select photographs from the day as much as I did taking them.

‘But the old man always thought of her as feminine and as something that gave or withheld great favors, and if she did wild or wicked things it was because she could not help them. The moon affects her as it does a woman, he thought.’
