Yesterday, I went for a walk around the block and detoured towards the river when I saw a Winnebago parked there… a couple of travelers had stopped for a relaxed cuppa on their way to Newcastle. Anyway, it was a most pleasant day, sunny, no wind, and a mirror surface on the Manning to reflect the Martin Bridge and the clouds… and I enjoyed my chat with Pru and Mike, the occupants of the Winnebago. They had some wonderful stories to tell about their travels over the years.

I’m a hobby photographer. In fact, I’m not sure Red Bubble should refer to me as an “artist”. But I do like to take photos that are above average, and certainly appreciate learning from my fellow Bubbleonian’s efforts as well as their comments. I use a second hand Sony Cybershot F717 (recently replaced by a new Nikon D3100) and a Fuji Finepix S7000. Photography allows me to keep souvenirs of my experiences. Today’s deeds become tomorrow’s memories.

    You have out done yourself Gary, you not only got out of the house, but you managed to shoot this fantastic photo…Good on you mate…Well done…

  • Coming from you, John, that’s a pretty flash compliment. You’re usually giving me cheek. Hehe. Yes, it happened to be one of those days. Besides, I really need the exercise. I’ve been getting waaaaay too lazy.

    Well done Gary, you nailed this one!

  • Thanks, Malcolm. People often ask what the bag of nails is for when I’m out photographing. :)
