    I'm a bit busy now. Employment after a long period of unemployment is a welcome interuption/addition to life. Photography and Ipernity are on the backburner. I'll be back sometime. Graham

  • Camera Adventures

    - January  9, 2016 - 3 comments
    I was in Istanbul on my return journey from somewhere. After a small delay with entry to Turkey due to some problem with passport control's computers I found my hotel and dined among the night life in the street. The following day I wanted to see three things, the Ayasofya, the vintage trams and the Bosporus suspension bridge. A metro ride next morning took me to near the first on the list. Soon after entering the extraordinary old building, built as a Church in the 6th C, the camera I br…

    This morning I missed getting a photo of three lowish flying chinook helicopters in close formation which flew over my home. GRRRRR.

  • The Tragedy of Ambitious Dictators

    - November 10, 2013 - 3 comments
    Seven decades ago many Japanese men came to the edges of Australia bringing death and destruction as they served their Ruler. They were required to dominate East Asia. Last month a man, a clever and skilled Japanese man, a surgeon, brought many additional years of healthy life to me. He and his team repaired my body. Thank you Dr Ura!

    Yahoo is not content with destroying Flickr. Yahoo's IMPROVED email interface is now almost unusable. It used to be the best. Some free advice, DON'T LET THE KIDDYS RUN THE COMPANY!

  • 'Views' at that Other Place

    - August 28, 2013 - 1 comment
    Some recent checks of my photos at that other place have been interesting. The quantity of daily views has generally increased. These are mostly the result of searches of which there has been a large increase.The quantity of views generated by link from a site where some photos are displayed and by viewers stepping through groups remains about the same. This appears to me to be the result of that place running software which selects words from the keyword database, searches on them and regist…

  • Response to a global warming circulating email

    - August 15, 2013
    I received an email promoting the views of Prof Ian Plimer. Here is my take on him. The email says the content is a summary then puts " " around it as though it's a quote, unlikely. Plimer is not the only researcher with young science success who went on to la la land later in life. Isaac Newton of maths…

  • Tabulam Bridge

    - August  8, 2013
    This bridge is the subject of one of my favourites. From the Northern Daily Leader, a regional newspaper in NSW. THE longest single-span timber bridge in the southern hemisphere will be demolished as part of the NSW government’s $145 million Bridges for the Bush program. The 110-year-old Tabulam bridge over the Clarence River was recently upgraded in a year-…

  • Here!

    - July 28, 2013
    Two years membership paid here. All photos are now copied across from that other place. They are categorised for that environment which is not ideal for this one so I may be reorganising the albums later after some thought. It's good to able to see photos as I like to. My photos at the other place will be left there as others appear to enjoy them there. I don't intend to add any additional ones there. I will probably visit that other place from time to time.
