About Me

Pictures of the Newcastle, NSW, Australia Floo...

Bruce Rouse, married, 3 kids, 1 mortgage. I live in Newcastle, NSW, Australia, before that, Sydney.

I’m extraordinarily average (or averagely extraordinary as we all are).

This is where I give my opinion on anything that stirs me to rattle the keys and see if others share my views, disagree or whatever. I’m also known to take a photo or two.

If you search on the main page (archives) under Photography, Australian Politics, News and Current Affairs or Uncategorised, you might find something of interest.

My photos, especially multiple images shown in a gallery, are reduced in resolution for faster loading and low data usage.

If you have the time and feel so inclined, let me know what you think.

Me by me.

    I just popped in for a quick look. Newcastle is possibly one of the best places along the coast certainly better that Sydney and different to Gosford. I noticed your link on a Miranda Divine blog

    • Howdy Edward, glad you stopped by. Hope you found something of interest.


  2. Hi Bruce–thanks for visiting my blog today…love what you are writing and it’s nice to read blogs from Australia…never been there but hope to go one day–it’s a long way from Canada’s eastern shore, though.
    Keep writing, and I’ll be back again soon.


    • Hi Sylvia, you kept your promise. I think you said you will read every comment, you must include ‘likes’ as well. I really liked your post; I’m a baby-boomer too and I guess we all start to wonder about future happenings with ourselves. I take heart in my Mum who is nudging 87yrs and still sharp; hopefully I will be too. My Dad didn’t fair as well for the last few years of his life following a few strokes. I was going to leave a comment for you but after reading those before me I found my offerings were well and truly covered. Nevertheless, your talent for stringing words together kind of contradicts your fears of being able to do so. I haven’t been to Canada but would love to one day. Hopefully we’ll talk again in the near future. Regards, Bruce


  3. Hi Bruce! Just wanted to stop by to say thanks so much for liking our recent post on bungy jumping in Japan. Much appreciated! 🙂
