Gone batty

Went for a walk today with the family, I’ve never actually seen bats during the day time.


I’ve also never seen so many bats. I imagine the horror walking down this path at night with a torch and seeing a hundred of the upside down creatures staring straight at me. Spine tingling.

Fun alternative fact: The bats are only upside down as we are in Australia.

The best view from a zoo

A giraffe eats dinner whilst overlooking the Sydney skyline.

Seeing a giraffe is always an awesome experience. Add the Sydney skyline to that and there really isn’t many better sights anywhere.

This was my view when I took the ferry from Circular Quay to Taronga Zoo. The ferry ride is always a fun one, the journey a very short one.


Getting up to the zoo is great. A cable car ride can be taken (one way or a return journey) with some even greater views high above the ground below.


This was a very rushed and fairly last minute look around the zoo, so apologies for the lack of content this time around. If I am back here again I will be sure to take much more time. I always prefer to see animals in the wild however, and this is my aim. Hopefully I find some great photo opportunities in the next twelve months with this in mind!

Just because you aren’t seen doesn’t mean you aren’t doing great

I love looking from my current location toward the city centre. The huge skyscrapers huddled together in a space 1cm across. In that space are what, tens of thousands of people? Hundreds of thousands? 


Each pixel will possess hundreds of unique stories. The people in there doing fantastic or inspirational things with fascinating life stories. But from here, what makes one pixel different to the last? Nothing. It all blends into one as if those stories aren’t there.

Do you wish your blog was viewed more? More likes and interaction? More people appreciating the hard work and effort put in and the incredible stories you have to share? Those people are out there, they just can’t appreciate it if you are out of view. 

Imagine this skyline at night with all the lights turned off. Every blog post turns a light on in your building, one by one. Eventually that building will be seen for miles and miles and will get heads turning. It may become the most noticeable building out there. That’s a bit like blogging in my opinion. Keep posting and keep switching those lights on, sooner or later your audience will have little reason to look anywhere other than your way. 

Keep blogging!
