2011 The Year In Photos: Frequent Travelling, Street Art and Photojournalism

Since this is a travel and photography blog I thought I’d highlight a few of my favourite 2011 photos rather than write about the year. Visit my Flickr profile to see more photos.

My Xmas/New Year Tasmanian family road trip holiday covered Hobart, Freycinet, Bicheno, Bay of Fires and Cradle Mountain.

2011 was a very busy period for work so I only had limited opportunities for random photo walks exploring my local area.

During the year I travelled for photography/journalism work to New Zealand’s South Island, the remote North West Kimberley region of Western Australia, Osaka and Tokyo Japan, the Eastern Cape region of South Africa, Darwin, Northern Territory, Bali, Indonesia and Canberra to report on President Obama’s trip as well as my visit to the NASA Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex.

Although I don’t drink I found myself in pubs many times this year for pub trivia competitions and other social events.

It’s been unseasonably cool and rainy for Sydney summertime this December.

  1. Neerav. What a year you have had! Congratulations. You live a life that many people would envy. Ok, so how did you obtain the image of the crocs from underwater?

    EDITOR: That tank full of crocs is at Crocosarus Cove in Darwin. There was a glass wall between me and the crocs. I was testing several underwater cameras which will be reviewed in the next issue of GEARE magazine #69.

  2. These photos are absolutely fantastic. As soon as I’ve written this I’m off to follow your link to Flickr to have a look at some more. Some of the things that I especially loved – the crocodiles underwater – I squirm to see those bellies and legs – the Jeffrey Smart-ness of the P&O containers on the dock, the texture and sharpness contrasts of the plane and the foliage, emphasising their two different worlds, in contrast, the way the wombat is absolutely part of its world – and that moon over the soh – stunning. I could go on, there’s lots more that knocked me out.

    So thanks. And may next year bring an equally impressive crop!

  3. Quote good pictures you posted on your homepage. And informative too.Didn’t know it’s summertime in Australia during December. it’s actually our rainy season at this time of year.

  4. Awesome! All the pictures are really mind blowing. It is very informative as well. I like your shoots very very much. Thanks

  5. Good photography. Especially the lion and parrot really inspired me, if real..

    EDIT: the are totally real photos
