While we were checking out the magnificent silo art in Wirrabara it gave us the perfect reason to try some free camping in the area, a town I had never stayed in before. This is just another reason why I think the idea of silo art is so important, it draws people to a town that might otherwise have been bypassed and we are happy to spend time and money while we are there.
Every so often I still enter photography competitions mainly to dare myself to hold it with the best. I am by no means technically correct, my photography is more emotional as well as trial and error. If I see it and love it, or it makes me go wow then I just assume that someone else might feel that way too. There are lots of photos I’ve taken that I really love and to me tell a story of a time or place and sometimes I will enter a competition to push myself and dare to try. This is especially true if it’s a competition where the judges are professional photographers whose opinion or critique I value. The recognition and acknowledgement to me is huge, worth more than any prize offered even.

This one is a definite for my caravan recipe book. A foolproof (and don’t waste your time standing around stirring) risotto.
