It’s been an interesting month settling into another new city. It’s a bit ironic that I’m writing this now as in less than 24 hours, I’ll actually be on my way back to Townsville for a few days. But alas, I digress!

Perth has been just amazing since I’ve been here. The weather has been great, the work is challenging, the coffee is awesome!

But with all the settling in, I haven’t really had the chance to go out and take any photos. So when I saw that Gizmodo had a photo challenge, it was all the excuse I needed to grab my camera, my new Peak Design messenger bag (can you tell that I’m still in love with my new bag? Use the code PXR for 10% off their stuff by the way!) and head off!

I accidentally ended up in South Perth (thanks to my inability to follow GPS directions) and ended up following the smells of the nearby Food Trucks to this spot:


So it turns out that the guys at Gizmodo loved the photo and I won the competition! So for the first time in a while, I got to see what a winning email looks like!



Thanks to all that voted (it means a lot, really)! I can’t wait to take the new camera for a spin! As it so happens, my birthday is coming up soon so this will make an excellent early present!

Now if I could only win myself one of those new DJI Phantom 4’s….
