My name is Ann.  I live in Tasmania, Australia.  For now.

Why aussirose?

 I am a travel addict and photographer.  I do not make money from my photography, there is too much competition out there and besides, I want to continue to enjoy what I do.  Of course I may take this on more seriously when I retire.  That is 3 years away and can't come quick enough.


I have had this blog for many years now.  It's a shame that blogging has been pretty much replaced by videos and recently tic-toc shorts because most people these days have the attention span of a fish.

As you can see from the links to the right, I have completed many pages and stories of travels and photography.  If you have sumbled across this site, then I hope that I can entertain you for a little while.

I have come a long way since my first DSLR, Canon 60D in 2013.  I have always enjoyed taking photos since very small.  I did not think I would join the DSLR world as I loved my Fuji Finepix water proof point and shoot.  But following hubby's great shots with his first DSLR in Europe 2011, I knew I had to relent and get one myself.

It's been photo wars ever since.

😉 😎

I have tried all genres and love the challenge of being out of my comfort zone.

I tend to gravitate more towards macro photography with flowers being my favourite. 

 I find street photography really interesting.  You need to be creative as we don't want to see just people walking on streets.  That's boring.

I have always loved night photography but unfortunately don't really have much of a chance to pursue this genre at the moment.  Come on retirement!

Hubby and I both do a lot of landscape photography as we enjoy our drives of discovery.  However you will often see me saying to hubby to go ahead as I am happy to sit on my little three pronged chair, taking phots of tiny flowers, weeds and grass lol. Or moss and lichen and maybe babbling creeks etc.

Anyway, enough of my rant.
