Keystone Cops

I had a chuckle today when I saw at least eight police sand-buggies and a larger number of police during a learn-to-drive practice session at the Gold Coast Spit. They were dodging markers, chucking wheelies, driving backward and forward and generally having a hell of a lot of fun. They were in training for the 2018 Commonwealth Games to be held on the fabulous Gold Coast. Queensland, Australia.

Swan Fake

I have never had any interest whatsoever in Valentines Day, but this graceful swan I photographed at Black Swan Lake sure does – or did. As Black Swan Lake is now being drained and filled, this swan is feeling totally unloved. So, those clowns who decided the pristine lake would be better off as a car park and a horse exercise yard, should go take a jump in the lake. Happy Valentines Day to all who believe in it. Hooray, love it and lap it up. Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.
