If you didn’t know it was there, you would never find it. I guess that’s why it’s called the secret garden. Just a small sign. You drive down a private road and suddenly it ends. You’re there. In the secret garden.
I flew five hours from Brisbane to Perth, drove another three down to Margaret River and in the end it was so worth it. Jenny and Andrew had a beautiful wedding and a great reception. Guests from Scotland left snow and -30C to land in the middle of an Australian heat wave. The day I left Perth it was 46C. Living in Brisbane, I’m kind of used to the heat, but thats’s 76 degrees warmer than Scotland. It must have felt like going to another planet for many of the guests from Europe.
Jenny wore an Akira dress, Andrew wore a manly Scottish garment, perfect for the Australian summer.
I think I’ll get one too.
The first auction raised more than $2600 for the relief efforts in Haiti and we were blown away by the response from both the public and other photographers. Many wanted a second auction and we decided to go for it. Some of my favorite photographers have donated prints and if you don’t want to place a bid on mine, have a look at the others.
The funds raised this time will all go to a single decided upon charity who is helping out in Haiti right now. This will be done after the auction and all donations will be made in the name of the winners.
