Lack of redbubble time !!!

Hi to all my friends and people on my watchlists. I just want to say that my time on RB will severely depleted during this week , as I have been asked to photograph at the Australian National Convention of FGBMFI, being held here in Geelong again this year, so that means long days behind the camera and late nights, downloading the day’s images. So my apologies for not getting the time to view and comment on ALL your wonderful uploads and look forward to catching up after the weekend.
Phil :o))
