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. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

  1. Irene, you are a genius. Calligraphy is a mark we usually identify with a sweep of ink. You see it as the impression of water drops, my favorite, the loft of leaves, or the dog’s whiskers. (I’m right about that one, correct? It’s not a photo of Roger early in the morning, is it?)

    • Yes you are right about that one being dog whiskers. Roger would be horrified – a five o’clock shadow beyond all proportions. LOL. I can’t take credit for the creative idea of calligraphy in nature, only in finding some of my photos that fitted the bill (and believe it or not some were taken on the day).

    For me the most evocative is the first shot. Thank you very much for joining in, Irene.

  5. My favorite is the water drops. I don’t know a great deal about photography, so am impressed that the water drops are well defined and not blurry.

    I love how you captured the calligraphy theme, so unique, even down the whiskers. The water drops are amazing and the first photo is mesmerising, it draws me right in. The collective tree shot too is so unusual. What kind of trees are they? I don’t think I’ve ever seen any quite like them…
