Hello and welcome to my Google+ page. I really enjoy macro photography, the small world often overlooked.
Click here to open my Macro Gallery: https://goo.gl/rCXkh9

I'm also very addicted to RC flight, especially FPV. 
To explore new areas like a bird is so much fun and very rewarding.
The videos create precious memories and are great to share.
Check out my RC Flight collection:https://goo.gl/Eunyjz
or head over to my YouTube Channel:https://goo.gl/U0xpMf

Creativity unleashed! I'm enjoying my CNC machine.
New collection to share my projects: https://goo.gl/7HSsuq

Below is a photo of my Hobby Room where I design and build my RC 'toys'. Have a close look .. lots of multirotors, FT Dusty and other Flite Test planes, Wings and RC Cars.

Yes I'm a big child, and loving it ... enjoy your time here :-)

baby ... mayfly

On my hunt through our garden I noticed what first appeared to be a little brown twig on a leaf. Closer inspection through the lens ... what is it?

The Birds
Here's some extra footage from my visit to Maules Creek, There were so many birds in one place ... what fun !!! I've never hit a bird flying First Person View. They do fly close, I suspect to intimidate and protect their area ... especially the Rainbow Lorikeets back home. Flying FPV with birds is lots of fun and yes these guys made lots of noise :-)

Loved FPV flying here, such a beautiful place with open spaces, interesting things to explore, and most importantly some clumps of trees to fly between and push the heart rate up.

Thornton Hall - 18th October 2016
Thornton Hall has changed a bit since the last video.
It's been a pleasure to be involved and watch as this building transforms into something beautiful :-)

Creativity Unleashed
G'day, thought I'd start a collection where I could share some of my CNC creativity. I bought my CNC 6040Z on eBay just over 1 year ago. I re-purposed an old ThermalTake PC Cooling system to keep the 1.5Kw motor cool and added an digital thermometer to monitor temperature. I also set up a steady stream of air that blows the waste away and keeps the tool bit cool.
I'm using VCarve Pro to design and create my toolpaths, this then gets sent to the CNC PC running Mach3.
I took these photos yesterday while cutting a batch of 20 PCB's for a local business. I'm using it more to create MultiRotor parts myself :-)

Happy New Year people. Took this photo in our front garden.
I think the Chironomid makes the photo more interesting :-)

Thanks to Cam & Trish for letting me explore their property.
There were lots of cockatoos and corellas to annoy, result being lots of noise ... and lots of fun :-)

Can be a challenge to focus, they're small and move so fast :-)

Creative, like my Creator :-)
Introduction
I'm a self taught photographer with a passion for focusing in on God's intricate design and creativity at macro levels.

I've also discovered the world of RC Flight. I enjoy designing, building and flying FPV (First-Person View) which is highly addictive and loads of fun. Check out the videos on my YouTube Channel :-)
