Loving Where We Live – Bunbury Western Australia

 

My ten year dream has finally come to fruition and, with the help of many people, our tourism focused photo book about the Greater Bunbury Region will be arriving in plenty of time for our book launch on Friday, December 1st. It would be helpful if people would pre-order/pre-pay for your book/s, to save you having to queue at the launch. Additionally, we can have your book bagged, signed (if you would LIKE it signed) and ready for pickup at the launch, or delivered to you afterwards, if you’re not able to join us at the event.

Here is an example of the type of content I will have in the book. My intention is to have mostly photos, with few accompanying words.

Bunbury’s iconic black and white chequered lighthouse at sunset on Australia Day, 26th January, 2016. I remember when this was built in 1970. Lucy MacDonald, who visits Bunbury annually from America, taught me that all lighthouses have a unique light pattern. This one emits 3 flashes, 2.4 seconds apart, every 15 seconds, and the light beam is visible for up to 27 kilometres out to sea.
Catherine Curnow – Bunbury Resident Since 1984.

I’ve had a name in mind for this book since I first had the idea to create it.

Loving Where We Live Glimpses of Bunbury Through the Eyes of the Locals

It has been suggested that I could have the book translated into languages other than English. Several friends have already offered to translate (without charge) the words into Italian, Norwegian, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese (both Mandarin and Cantonese).
