I am a final year Arts/ Media student at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne. I have studied part time for the last four years after re-enrolling in final year high school as a part-time mature student. My degree at Swinburne will be my second, as I already hold a diploma in Applied Science in Horticulture from Burnley. My normal working week is taken up as a gardener for the City of Boroondara in Melbourne. As part of my course at Swinburne I have enrolled in a first year journalism unit, Digital Literacies. This envolves the setting up and running this blog and using it as a folio for my class work.
This work will include a series of short articles and regular blog enteries. I have decided to use my blog to explore examples of our citiy's vanished buildings and parks and gardens using an on-line archive of historic photographs.
