My Favourite Photos of 2018

In recent times, I’ve started a tradition of sorting through my photos for the year and posting some of my favourites here on the blog. I enjoy being able to share another side of my creativity and some of the memories that come up. Looking back on 2018 left me feeling like this year has been a million miles long. I’m guessing I’m not the only one.

As usual, the photos have been sorted into two categories. The photos for my blog were all taken using my phone (a Samsung Galaxy S7, for the curious). The personal photos are mixed, with some taken using my phone, and some taken with a Nikon D7000 camera.

While I feel it has been a reasonably lacklustre year for my blog photography, it’s a different story when it comes to the personal. Indeed, I had a hard time culling them down.

Ophidiophobes may want to skip the last photo.



The sapphire below is 478 carats and is part of the Cartier exhibition that toured at the National Gallery of Australia earlier this year.

The next photo was taken while showing around GUFF delegate Marcin Klak. I wasn’t fond of it at first, since the focus is on the reeds at the front rather than the platypus in the background, but it has grown on me over the intervening months.
