Welcome to my web site. 

I am Vic SHELLEY and this site includes my photographic portfolio and the

Genealogy of the SHELLEY and LOCK and GREENING families.

I currently reside in Perth, Western Australia

Perth, from across the Swan River    

My interests/hobbies are music - listening and playing (drums), photography, and genealogy.
I invite you to visit with me on my site - search the family trees, look at the photo albums, read some book reviews, explore some great genealogy links, or contact me about a family connection.

Above all, lay back, take it easy, and enjoy your life, and take a little advice from one of my favourite poems.

What is this life, if full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare.


No time to stand beneath the boughs,

And stare as long as sheep and cows.


No time to see, when woods we pass,

where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.


No time to see, in broad daylight,

Streams full of stars, like skies at night.


No time to turn at Beauty's glance,

And watch her feet, how they can dance.


No time to wait till her mouth can

Enrich that smile her eyes began.


A poor life this, if full of care,

We have no time to stand and care.

I also invite you to visit my son Andrew's web site.  He is a long distance and adventure runner, a crazy streak that certainly didn't come from my side of the family (Vic).
