Nightwalking – Heading Home

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any nightwalking pictures, as it’s been a while since I’ve actually done it. It is summer in the southern reaches of the world and the days take up a lot of the night. …


Chasing Bridges

Brilliant stuff, going bridge hunting in Putrajaya while the rain roared down. I was impressively assisted by my sister that night. She who did the splash and dash out the car with the umbrella for me, making sure me and …

Nightwalking – Chemical Ghosts

Nightwalking – The Walls of the WACA
