Hot Rod Show and Shine in Toowoomba

10 Mar

Even though I am suffering from a bad case of the man flu, nothing could stop me from going down to Margaret Street in the CBD of Toowoomba to check out the show and shine competition of the High Altitude Hot Rod Run. There was certainly some well polished  machinery on display for the young and old car enthusiast. Although alot of the cars are much older than me and I don’t know what models they are, I can still see these beautiful cars and appreciate the amount of effort that has gone into restoring them to their natural beauty. Below are just a few of my favourites that were on display.

Matt Edwards Photography

23 Feb

As I sit in a classroom teaching 20 little prep children how to write and read, I cant help but think back to my work at Aston Martin in London, and think how much I miss it. However I am enjoying being a teacher again and am glad that I have such awesome memories of my working time in London. I have also been busy setting up my photography business – ‘Matt Edwards Photography‘. I am enjoying getting my work recognised with more and more bookings coming in. Please check out my Facebook page and ‘Like’ if you haven’t already. Likewise, if you are looking for any photographic work please contact me. My official ‘Matt Edwards Photography’ website is currently under construction so please watch this space.

Five things… we love about Toowoomba

22 Dec

There is no doubt travelling the world opens your eyes, ears and mind to different cultures, experiences, sights, smells and sounds. But our travels have also helped us see a new perspective of the place we call home as we continue to enjoy rediscovering Toowoomba and those typical experiences you wouldn’t get anywhere else but in Australia. Here’s our five things we’ve been loving about being home:

Jacaranda

{1. Beautiful blooms… arriving home in the Spring, the Garden City is full of life and colour.}

{2. Stunning sunsets… there is nothing like an  Australian sunset. The sky glows with gold, crimson and purple in what makes a spectacular sight.}

{3. Beautiful buildings and green spaces… The beautiful Empire Theatre and the stunning Japanese Gardens are favourite Toowoomba landmarks for us. It’s not hard to see why.}

Aussie Backyards

{4. Backyards…  big enough to run around with the kids, be silly and have fun.}

Summer Storm

Hail Storm

{5. Summer Storms… after a hot steamy day, the storm clouds form in the distance before slowly rolling in, bringing with them a thunder and lightning show and spectacular photo opportunities. We’re looking forward to more over the Summer months!}

today was meaningful

a collection of thoughts, life lessons, and days full of meaning.
