A collection of images from my life and the world around me.  They’re not here because they are stunning images (although a few are pretty good).  I post them so as to share a little of what my life is like.  Unfortunately, I’ll never own the kind of camera that can do justice to the unique and stunning beauty of this amazing world.  Some of these are snapped with my phone camera and some have been taken with a Canon DSLR and carefully made.  A few were taken by others. I hope you enjoy them.

Wallaby with hay.jpg
Not a good image, photographically. But it was taken at 640mm F6.3 in failing light. The meadow hay had been cut in the field and was awaiting bailing. This Bennets Wallaby was picking up armfuls of hay and eating while sitting upright. Had never seen them do that before. We counted about fifty wallabies in the field when this was taken!

  1. I love the cabinet that your 1904 is in – it is beautiful – the machine looks flawless. Your 1960 Red S is gorgeous also – you were lucky to find that one, it’s pretty rare. I have a 222 but it is not a Red S I’m thinking I need to do the photo album like you have!!!! I have a detailed inventory of each machine (name / model / color / serial number / manufacture date / date purchased / amount / and where from I love your collection

  2. Andrew,
    I have an old Singer hand crank for sale #11753834 which I think was made around 1893. Interested? Maybe you know someone who might be. Cheers Andy

    • Hello Andy,

      Can you please let me know where your machine is located? Presumably, any sale of an antique machine will involve a local pickup.

      I’m not really looking to acquire any additional machines unless they happen to meet a very specific sewing need that I have. I’m more interested in working in leather and vinyl and making utility items. If the truth be told, I probably should be trying to move on some of my own machines. However, I’ll be very happy to leave your message on here and if anyone else is interested, they can contact you directly

      Have you tried advertising your machine locally on Gumtree? You might be surprised at the interest in a pre-1900 machine.

      Best of luck with it.
