It started with a call from Garden Beet, one of Australia’s premium vertical garden designers for residential and commercial fitouts. They’d completed a vertical green wall installation for Telstra at Highpoint, but were having trouble getting a good photo of it for their web & print marketing.

Recently I had a couple of free days up in Sydney. The weather was glorious, and after checking out some fabulous art at the Biennale and upgrading my knowledge of native birds at the Australian Museum, I wanted to spend some time just wandering the city centre, camera in hand. The Fujifilm X-T2 is my go-to travel camera – if you haven’t got one I simply can’t recommend it highly enough – and for this…
