This is the story I coaxed out of a few people passing by one early morning on the Gold Coast, Australia. So I am only the messenger: The man who lived on the boat had a heart attack. He was carted off to hospital. He’d also had two legs amputated. As he couldn’t do anything to salvage his prize possession he signed it over the the troops who control the waterways (whoever they may be) That’s very sad. The boat has been in that position for more than two months. Bloody sad. See the shag (bird) drying its wings.

I Nearly Got It Right…

I noticed this man pulling up his anchor early one morning on the Gold Coast Broadwater. I aimed my camera and as I adjusted for the light, whoosh, these bunch of birds flew past. The light was lousy but of course I had to snap it. If all that didn’t happen in a rush I could have had a great shot. But it doesn’t matter – it has all the elements. Queensland, Australia.013_7009-1
