Psshh I ate death for breakfast. And I went back for seconds. To use this wonderful contraption, just crack open two eggs into the rings and enjoy!

Michelle Wilding Reader Find

By Michelle Wilding in New Events on Monday 26 July 2010

I love his series of hazy cityscape shots, which he snapped while working as a high rise window cleaner — a prime position to capture our rat race city. Catch his photography, along with hand-painted animal skulls, at his upcoming debut Gosford Regional Art […]
