Sad but excellent analysis of our national hypocrisy and exceptionalism. #Bali9
;I'm fairly unmoved by the executions of two Australian drug smugglers in Indonesia.

George Marshall: Darkness evokes feelings of danger, decay and death. So why use such imagery to highlight our cause?

"As a result, Abbott has been able to make Australia a little more like himself: a bit more self-involved, a bit more threatening, a bit more masculinist, a bit more difficult for outsiders to understand, a bit creepier, a bit more weird. No, I’m not crying, I swear. It’s the onions."

Yep, it's always one way. Have you noticed the scarcity of attacks since n.s.w. elections. Only put mob on awhile ago and forgot your a few hours behind.

“The control is so ubiquitous that we don’t see it.” We don’t see, either, how the threat of violence underpins society, he claims. “The rarity with which the truncheons appear just helps to make violence harder to see,” he writes.

Yeah, now that I have a real camera I realise the difference. Good shoot for the N5!

This seems eminently sensible.

If you were a cloud, as if this is not the one you would want to be.

Story
Tagline
Pro photographer, graphic designer & anti-coal activist. Studying Design at UTS. Passionate about community-owned renewable energy.
Introduction
I'm a passionate social change campaigner, graphic designer and photographer living in the Blue Mountains and currently studying Design in Visual Communication at the University of Technology, Sydney. I've been a professional campaigner for over six years as well as running my own photography and graphic design business and consulting to progressive organisations as a professional facilitator, change strategist and expert in community organising, mass mobilisation, corporate and finance campaigning and political strategy.

Up until the beginning of 2014, I was leading financial and mobilisation strategies for Greenpeace Australia Pacific’s coal and Great Barrier Reef campaign. I am an active member of the board of Solar Citizens / 100% Renewable Community Campaign, Climate Action Blue Mountains and a founding director of the Blue Mountains Renewable Energy Co-op. I grew up on a bush property on the outskirts of Sydney and now live in Leura in the World Heritage Blue Mountains.

Very good coffee.

Great little tucked away café. Love the creative food options - avocado salsa hot chips?! The coffee is excellent, the vibe is kinda refined urban grunge - what do you expect, it's right next to the Architecture, Design & Building faculty of UTS. The avocado smoothie is a one of a kind miracle.

Great spot. Pretty lawns for a picnic and lots of cool little pathways through different botanical environments.

This restaurant is in a great little leafy spot next to the church on the main street of Springwood. The menu was a little meat heavy for me as a vegetarian but they did me an off-menu special of spiced chickpea stuffed capsicum for a main which was excellent. The wine list is dominated by good local options, including the Blue Mountains' own Dry Ridge range. The deserts are very nice but nothing amazing. The whole menu is pretty solid, perhaps just slightly over-priced for the quality. All in all, a lovely spot for an evening out.

Great hundred-year-old cinema that's been renovated and refreshed inside with a lovely little cafe.

This is a fantastic little guesthouse in the quaint village of Kastraki. If you are visiting the World Heritage monasteries and landscapes of Meteora, I recommend you stay in Kastraki rather than the bigger Kalampaka. Kalampaka is walking distance (for more restaurant options particularly) but Kastraki has a much more authentic local feeling. Archontiko Mesohori typifies this atmosphere, nestled close to the huge rock spires on the edge of the village. The accomodation is very good value in my view - the rooms are comfortable, generous and well appointed with kitchenette, separate living room, fireplace (extra charge) and a small bath. The included breakfast is also a generous buffet offering Greek-style breads plus cereals, eggs, etc. Considering the main attraction, Meteora, is free (albeit with a small charge to enter each monastery) and within walking distance (you can walk the whole area with all monasteries in a day if you're fit and start early) the €90 I paid for two nights seemed like a bargain. A few minor gripes included: WiFi signal was very poor and hardly worked in my room, no wall fixture for the shower head combined with a small bath and the room key turns on power so you can't charge a camera or phone while you're out. NB. Google maps has the wrong location for this place, but it's not hard to find.
