January 17, 2011. This morning I noticed a bunch of pics of cars
caught up in the Queensland floods on a newsgroup, so I copied them and
made an album. Click

January 16, 2011. Here we are half way through January already
so I figured I'd better get OUT THERE and DO something. We've had a lotta
rain in recent weeks so that's my excuse. Just to remind me in years to
come when I read this again, this was the month Brisbane and other parts
of Queensland had major floods.
But today is sunny and fine. In fact, it's bloody hot! I lasted only
1 hour at the NSW Rowing Association Point Score Regatta, hosted
by Port Macquarie and Manning River Rowing Clubs, with 300-400 competitors
from clubs across NSW. It was held on the Manning River, Taree,
not far from where I live. I should have worn my hat, but I didn't. I should
have put sunscreen on my arms and nose and neck but I didn't. After an
hour of wandering around in that hot sun, even between 10 and 11am, I could
feel the effects of the heat. So could a few others as you'll see, especially
in pic 025.
I'm not a fan of rowing, and don't follow any particular club, so I
was more interested in capturing some of the atmosphere. It was a good
excuse to look for interesting shots, and even some creative ones. I noticed
quite a few guys with awesome pecs, pumped by all that rowing, but there
was no way I was gonna ask for a pose. I like my nose the way it is.
here for the photo album.
