I live with two cattle dogs in Toukley, on the Central Coast of NSW, Australia. Our life involves lots of dog related activity from bushwalks to herding sheep.
I've recently become interested in birds - I guess you could call me a fledgling bird nerd. But I generally combine bird watching with a dog walk, so there are limits to my sucess in this field.
I volunteer a couple of hours a week to take photos of dogs at the local RSPCA shelter, for them to use on their website.
I get an overseas holiday most years - and generally head back to the US. I lived in Tennessee for five years in the seventies.
I shoot with a Canon EOS 7D.

Georgie Sharp says:
"Marj will probably be surprised to find this testimonial because Marj just tells it how it is and doesn't expect accolades or recognition.
Marj , Thommo and Dusty live the great Australian dream.... freedom of thought, action and creative enterprise.
Her recent excellent bird photos are the result of an eye for beauty and detail , and persistence and patience. We have all learnt from her great knowledge of names and species.
Marj also knows a lot about plants and I have come to depend on her for the names of exotic beauties or a referal to someone who knows ;-)
Her Pasha Bulker set is a favourite!!!
I look forward to more of the same Marj ;-D"
