PhotoBlog 2009

Rather than attempt to add one photo every day, the intention is to add random photos as events occur so that this album will grow to become my photographic record of 2009. Photos will be added in reverse order so that the most recent images can be found at the beginning of the album. This collection of images representing the diverse subjects I have photographed during 2009 is now complete and I hope you enjoy reviewing the year as seen by my camera.

PhotoBlog 2007
7. PhotoBlog 2007 

This album was created with the intention of taking a photo to represent each day of the year, however, this has not been quite as easy as it sounds, so random images taken throughout the year have been used to represent 2007 as it was.

Bushfires
8. Bushfires 

Bushfires have a devastating effect on the natural vegetation of the Australian Bush. An area of about 5 hectares was burnt in Perth's popular Kings Park on 16 January 2009. Sadly, this is believed to be the work of an arsonist. Seven weeks later, I returned to Kings Park to view the aftermath of this fire and it is sad to see the extensive loss of vegetation and habitat. One year has now elapsed since the bushfire and a return visit brings new photos to show how the vegetation is coping with the struggle for survival. Area re-visited in September 2010 and additional photos show regrowth following a dry winter with very cold nights, 20 months after the Bushfire. Re-visited the area again in August 2012 and an additional twelve photos show the regeneration that has occurred over three and a half years since the devasting bushfire.

Bon Scott Tribute
19. Bon Scott Tribute  (May 2009)

Ronald Belford (Bon) Scott was born at Kirriemuir, Scotland, on 9th July 1946. The Scott family migrated to Australia 1952 and they settled in Fremantle in 1956 where Bon attended North Fremantle Primary School and later John Curtin High School. His passion for music intensified during his teenage association with ‘The Caledonian Scots Pipe Band’ of Fremantle who awarded him ‘Novice Champion for Drumming’ four years running. Bon dreamt of being a ‘Rock n Roll Star’ and began living his dream with voracious passion. He first performed with “The Spektors’ 1965, ‘The Valentines’ 1966-70 and ‘Fraternity’ 1970-73 before joining ‘AC/DC’ in 1974 with whom he proceeded to shake the foundations of Rock n Roll music through his writing and performance of what have become recognised by millions of fans around the world as the greatest Rock n Roll anthems ever written including; ‘It’s a Long Way To The Top’, ‘TNT’, ‘High Voltage’, ‘Jailbreak’, ‘Let There Be Rock’, and ‘Highway To Hell’. The tragic and untimely death of Bon Scott on the 19th February 1980, in London UK, left us with an enduring musical legacy that continues to inspire the Rock n Roll spirit in successive generations. In September 2005 the National Trust of Australia listed the Bon Scott Grave Site as a “Heritage and Cultural Icon”. This is the first contemporary icon to be added to a list traditionally reserved for buildings and homes. In July 2006, to mark what would have been Bon Scott’s 60th Birthday, the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board  completed refurbishments on the Bon Scott Grave Area. This consisted of a Bon Scott Arch and Memorial Entrance gate and a new rustic looking black concrete footpath with stainless steel symbols embedded at both ends of the 50 m walkway. The actual gravestone was not disturbed and has remained in its original position since 1980. In 2008 a life-size bronze statue of Bon Scott was unveiled overlooking the Fisherman’s Wharf in Fremantle. This album contains a few images of the Bon Scott Tribute Sculpture and the Bon Scott Grave Area. A ‘Rock n Roll Legend’ whose star continues to rise.

High School Reunion
21. High School Reunion  (24 March 2010)

A Reunion was held at Northam, Western Australia, on 24 March 2010 to commemorate the milestone of 60 years since the First Year Classes of 1950 enrolled as students at Northam Senior High School.  There were approximately 180 First Year students and we were divided into five classes, 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D & 1E, each with approx 36 students.  About 65 of these ex-students made the nostalgic trip back to Northam for the reunion, and for many, it was the first time they had made the return journey.  Sincere appreciation is extended to the Principal, Staff and Students for their welcoming hospitality in allowing us to return to the school to marvel at the changes that have taken place over the years.  We were all impressed by the marvelous new Courtyard which has replaced the old asphalt quadrangle, and surprised to see the extended side Wings and addition of a fourth two-storey Wing to complete the quadrangle.  Special thanks to the Year 12 Prefects for their informative guided tour which allowed us to view the many new buildings housing Manual Arts, Library, Computer Rooms, Science Rooms, Phys Ed, Canteen, etc.  The delicious morning tea served by the students was enjoyed by all, and we really appreciate the opportunity to return to Northam Senior High School for this reunion.
