Triple J’s Beat The Drum concert

I’ve been a little off my blogging game lately, having let this place lay dormant for the four months since I became a dad.

Homebake 2009

Here’s my photos from the Homebake festival on Saturday. Lovely day out as usual, and this year marked the fifth time i’ve photographed Homebake.
