A few more from Australia

While I’m waiting for more film to get developed, I thought I would share a few more photographs I made during my trip to Australia in 2007.

My wife and I took a train from Brisbane to Sydney and although the trip was very long I enjoyed every minute of it. I wish trains went everywhere in the world, even over oceans. Although flying is convenient, it is a thoroughly unpleasant experience. But I digress. In Sydney we visited the Opera House and I made a number of photos with my Nikon D70.

I made a couple of photos of the whole complex but everyone has done these so I tried to make some photos of sections that I thought were visually interesting.

A week later we were doing a farmstay near Rockhampton. I didn’t take a photo, but I remember signs around that said, “Welcome to Rockhampton. Eat more beef, ya bastards!” As you can guess, it was a cattle farm we stayed on. Besides lying around and enjoying the weather, we also did a tour of the farm on a pickup truck. I used a Fuji Finepix F11 to make this photo of a horse and an Austrian girl. Nothing is in focus and the horizon is tilted but this is one of my favourite photos from the trip.

I would like to visit Australia again someday and I would especially like to stay on this farm again.
