Happy Birthday, Momo!

To one of the BEST photographers and crazy Canucks we know…hope your day is filled with enough wonderful things that you won’t want to put your camera down for a second 🙂

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.

– Elliott Erwitt


Something in common…


Old friends, sitting on their park bench like bookends.

Firepower.  And looking hot in camo gear.

Free as a bird, it’s the next best thing to be….

You know what’s coming next…BTTF!

You’d think Steve’s mother would have taught him that it’s impolite to speak with a mouth full of food. Surely she could have done that in the first 15 or 16 years of his life, before she fake exploded.


Eight legs good, four legs…fkn hysterical


…and that one behind the tree? A SuperSEAL, you say? A very special and rare species, you say? Perhaps we should catch it and let it breed in captivity.


Calling to wish Momo a Happy Birthday!


Just around the corner,
There’s a rainbow in the sky.
So let’s have another cup o’ coffee,
And let’s have another piece o’ McG pie.
~Irving Berlin, 1932 (with apologies!)


Oh, Momo….these structures and that elephant’s trunk remind us so much of something. We can’t quite think what it is…It’s on the tip of our tongues…(if only!)

Heymomo, an animal lover just like Alex.  Awww, cute.

Rub my tummy?  Pleaaaase?

I know which escalator I'd rather travel on - the one with the pretty!

They’re going up, we’re going down

Birds are dangerous, you know.  Well, nesting magpies in Oz are for sure.

Birds.  They lull you into a false sense of security and then they attack.  (Momo, remember we are Australian and live in fear of nesting magpies!)

I never want to be a horse as much as I do when I look at this picture.

Locked out?  No matter.  Call McGarrett.  He'll get you in.

Alex, have you learnt nothing from growing up in Australia?  Sharks, mate, sharks!

An oldie but a goodie.  Yeah, McG definitely uses old school tactics.

Old school.

Maybe a little crusty on the outside but definitely soft on the inside.  Sigh.

  5. This is fantastic! Happy Birthday, Momo. Your photographs are lovely. I especially like the text ones (telephones, food, fire, etc.) You have quite an eye.

    A very happy birthday to you, my fellow Canuck!

  10. I just love a world where breeding in captivity might look good, little elephants have big trunks and we all want to be horses. (Genius as always Westy)
    Have a wonderful round world birthday Momo!!

  11. Amazing work Westy and Andrea, really loved every pic and clever text 🙂
    Happy Birthday Momo! I am glad I got to see more of your photos, they seem to get lost on my twitter timeline.

  12. Momo, so glad you like the present. It was Westy’s idea and then we worked on it together, with inspired help from Alicia on a few of the captions. We had so much fun searching through your amazing photos and matching them with pics from Show. Impossible to pick a favourite, I reckon.

    How cool is it that we could find connections between your masterful photography and H50?

    So happy that the round planet gives you twice the birthday fun 🙂

  13. Westy, Andrea and Alicia, this is inspired. So subtle and clever and lovely!
    Happy Birthday Momo, I love your photos, they are wonderful.

    Great job Sue and Andrea. I kept looking at each new pic going, “that’s my fav one.” Then I would look at the next one, “no that’s my fav one!” I got lost somewhere after BTTF. All so awesome! I love it when one of us has a birthday.
