Our last night in Cambodia, we watch traditional dancers perform on a brightly lit stage.

In the Pelorus Sound, New Zealand we arrived at the batch in the early night. Outside a velvety surreal sight

That outside welcome continued once inside.

Children will always find a merry-go-round day or night.

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.

    Night scenes inside and outside, and I like them all 🙂 Particularly successful ones are the portrait at the dinner table and dancers.
    P.S. I would fancy a merry-go-round any time of the day. Thank you, Irene. It is a fun challenge, isn’t it. 🙂

  3. I love the different perspective you get when you view new unfamiliar places at night! These are great shots, and you will value them later, and probably wonder, “Where is this?” Fun, as always, Irene!

  4. Great contrast – night and light, fire and friends, warmth and welcome.

  6. “Welcoming warmth beckons from within the French hotel”. Sounds great too me! I also see that there are some wine glasses on the table. 🙂 I’m always ready for some wine.
