newman_ Today is an important day for me, one year ago today, I got in my car and drove to a new city, new job and a different life. Away from all the amazing people that made my life wonderful, day in day out with what seemed then like small, insignificant acts of kindness. My mum and dad, best friends, surrogate families and my dog, all waved me goodbye. You are all still there for me, I know and I'm lucky to still see some of you from time to time. But I couldn't figure out a better way to reach all of you than this. The things I enjoy most and the best people I've met in Sydney and in my work all have little pieces of you in them. But this isn't about me, or my life. It's about you all and how amazing you all are and how proud I am to be able to call you all my best friends, trusted confidants and family (in every sense of the word). In twelve months of exploring a new place and a new life, I've learnt a simple important thing...before heading off in search of the future or distant horizons, to notice what we have. Sorry for the ramble, but thanks for everything. 2d

newman_ I've never seen a waterfall go into the ocean before, so I stared at this fucking weird thing yesterday for ages before I took a photo. Next time I'll swim beneath it! #weareexplorers #getoutthere #wildernessculture #ventureout #idratherbeexploring #adventurescene #meetthemoment #adventureisoutthere #followyouradventure #theoutbound 3d

newman_ Packing my bags for the usual get-the-fuck-out-of-the-city weekend. Hopefully I'll find a bit of serenity like this, West Timor. 6d

newman_ Today marks a pretty cool day for me. After spending the last three years challenging myself to take photos with difficult cameras, from a clunky rangefinder to a tiny point-and-shoot, I've treated myself to a new SLR. I'm looking forward to starting to write & shoot stories of the trips that I take as more of a creative outlet more than anything & if other people enjoy it too, that's a bonus. 2w

newman_ Spent the weekend with these two old friends. We don't get to spend anywhere near as much time together as we used to conversations pick up where they left off and despite our different lives now, they are the same mates I've always had. So I guess the old cliche, so lame and boring on the surface, is actually true. Some things change, others stay the same. 4w
