That tower

Usually when I photograph the lookout tower at Dicky Beach, I have to squint because of the bright sun reflected off the sand.

Blurring what a camera can be. Moffat Beach

Unable to gather sufficient photos to get me through the coming six months, this "Daily" blog will become bi-weekly for at least that time.   As you read this I am already well on my way to a place far from here!

Day two of my experiments with the new phone, and I'm already beginning to wonder whether I'm game to cut down my carry-on luggage by a few more kilos!

The New Phone goes to Moffat Beach

Unable to carry the weight of a camera for a time, and needing a new phone, well I went to the top shelf didn't I?  Here is one of the first photos I took with it, part of a panorama in difficult light conditions.  Forget the composition, I was really just trying to get bits of light and shadow into the shot.   I'm not a new phone kind of guy, but let's just say I'm impressed.

Broke, but impressed.

A Night in Hospital

It's been a while, and perhaps some will be relieved to discover it may be a while longer until normal posting resumes.    I do want to apologise for the concern I caused some by allowing this blog to go "dark" immediately following the publishing of the hospital carpark photo in March, and thank you to all who contacted me to enquire as to my well being.  The photo was an unintentional portent of things that were to come.

I am indeed quite well after a lengthy but perfectly normal recovery from a bit of surgical correction which has left me rather without photographs to share.

To make matters worse it's left me without my usual catalogue which enables me to post daily while on our annual migration to the other side of the world.

I have gathered a scattering of photos over the past few weeks as mobility has improved, and if I eke them out we may well have a bi-weekly blog until our return from places other than this one.

Thank you for your understanding. Hopefully we'll resume full transmission some time in November.

Well that's the plan!

Another Car Park

My first visit to the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital carpark, left me with a few good impressions.   

As these things go, it's not expensive at five dollars for the first hour and a bit, at least at the time I was there, finding a spot was easy, and for those who are used to large hospitals in the middle of urban areas, this one is a kilometre or so from the beach and is bound on the opposite side by dense bushland.  There's not much to add about population density on the coast!

Busy 2

It's not the first time I've published a photo from the Home Centre in Birtinya, but it is the first time the monster carpark have been anything near full.

Perhaps it's the new big box hardware store that's brought the crowds, or perhaps they were just out and about before the promised storm.   In any case, the landscaping (well the trees at least) are starting to make their presence felt.  In a year or two it won't be a forest, but there'll be shade for the early birds.
