Inresponse  to Weekly Photo Challenge Minimalist

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

  1. Okay… I’m trying to figure something out here. Is that a wave in the background? Because I know it can’t be.

    I was just wondering the same question. What a neat picture.


    • I’m copying the answer I gave Sarah, but you are right I too think it is a neat picture. Caught as the tidal wave came in… No just joking. It is a volcano, black because of the ash it spews out and the area the chap is riding on is the ash plain. My husband got caught on it one day in torrential rain and the water off the volcano was massive and his jeep sank ’til all four axles were covered in sludge.

    I thought it was a big wave rolling in too, great shot.


  6. Charli Mills says:

    It is an incredible photo, especially knowing what the background is! The contrast in color is great, and I like how the rider comes into the frame as if he’s passing through it.
