Photoshoot with Vee







Yesterday I had a really cute shoot with Vee, who had big smiles and liked to pull funny faces all day. Sun was out but it was damn cold! She did so well though!

Nano Reef – Fluval Edge 2 – We’re there!

Nitrites are almost at 0, and nitrate’s not so bad at all! Cycle is pretty much done! I’m ready to start stocking!

I’ve just serviced my 4-stage RO/DI unit (reverse osmosis and de-ionisation unit) replacing all 4 filters. This will make sure I don’t introduce unwanted chemicals from Sydney tap water into my tank.

Years ago I bought a 4-stage RO/DI unit from PSI Water Filters who are associated with the Marine Aquarium Societies of Australia Forums. I gave them a call, they still had me in the system and in an overnight bag I was sent all 4 filters to replace and get my unit up and running again, with discount! Love it that they’re still around! Service was amazing.

JDM Concept Logo




I sincerely never thought I’d ever see my logo design work on a wheel, let alone a wheel made by one of the largest and most respected Japanese wheel manufacturers.

Well done to JDM Concept for this collab wheel design with Work Wheels Japan! I’m stoked, for me and them!

Brooklyn Boy Bagels

Great shop front but no signage makes it hard to spot when driving past (I’ve been past the shop so many times recently and never spotted it!).

Pastrami reuben with sauerkraut.

Corned beef, mustard and pickle on a garlic bagel.

We went for both the Dr. Browns. The Celery drink was whack! Black Cherry was all sorts of Sarsaparilla like goodness.

The whole shop is themed so well.

Post shoot with Krysti I finally found Brooklyn Boy Bagels, who have opened up in the old school sleepy suburban suburb of Matraville. Owner Michael Shafran looks and sounds the part, with a thick American accent, he’s somehow managed to bring a bit of Brooklyn to Sydney, and I’m totally stoked about it!

The shop’s a little hard to spot from the street, but it’s decked out real nice with old world American memorabilia and Biggie Smalls, Robert De Niro (as the Taxi Driver) and Banksy-esque artwork on the walls.

Photoshoot with Krysti



Last week Krysti and I did a hike through Botany Bay National Park to check out the war bunkers. On the walk we came across an overgrown path which sparked us both to want to shoot there and today we went out and got the job done!

Weather was perfect, and Krysti (miss selfie queen) finally turned her eyes on for my lens! We wrapped up the shoot really fast (I’d guess 40 minutes tops) because we absolutely killed it!

I’m super happy with the shots, especially the portrait of her on the log. You can view the full set here:

Nano Reef – Fluval Edge 2 – inTank Media Basket

inTank media basket on left, stock basket on the right.

It came with a clown fish sticker and a fishy lolly (I was confused initially thinking it was fish food?!), random!

Almost blew up the house with overflow water dripping down a power cable into the powerboard on the floor. Me bad! No drip loops! One of the first aquarium keeping lessons… I’ve now mounted the powerboard up high.

My inTank media basket came in the mail today. Lovely little thing. Very well made, nicely designed too. It holds a lot less media than the flimsy stock basket, but the flow through the media is bang on now!

Nano Reef – Fluval Edge 2 – It’s Still Cycling


Big boy.

Added 2 tiny little hermit crabs which I found in a rock pool out at Little Bay today.

Top down shot. Hammer coral is hating life, but hanging in there!

I’m finally seeing some algae! I’ve been doing water tests and I’m still getting readings of ammonia and nitrite, but the ammonia is going down, and nitrite is spiking right now. The cycle is almost done! The tank is definitely going through the ugly phase right now but my clean up crew (CUC) are loving it, the turbo snails especially who are at least trying to do a pretty good job of keeping the back glass clean.

The rain amazingly held out once more at last night’s End Of Month Meet! I must be blessed, right?! Was a great turnout, great vibes too. More trader stands than ever, now we just need better food!!!

Chill the fuck out, Sydney

Cacia Zoo on Wedding Cake Rock.

So today I saw a video online about Wedding Cake Rock, which I ventured out to with Cacia recently (my photos here). It’s now blocked off so people cant step on it anymore.


Coming off the back of the recent A Current Affair crap (read; sensationalism) about hoons, which is very quickly undoing the 10+ years of work I’ve put into nurturing the Sydney car scene, this new news has just hit a nerve with me today.

I’m sincerely shocked at how Sydney continues to become the ultimate Nanny State and I’m just glad (and sad) to be able to say that once upon a time I used to be able to ride my bike to school without a helmet, and skateboard on the footpath, and drive my modified car without fear of being defected, and go bar hopping until the early morning…
