May 26, 2013. Busy day today! First of all, NC Art sent a bunch
of pics of things we don't usually see. Too many pics for Waffle
so I made an album
which you can see here.
Also today I went to the Taree Rescue Squad's Weekend on Wheels
with hotrods, vintage cars, bikes and more. It was a perfect autumn day
with sun shining. Had a bit of trouble with flare because I forgot the
lens hood. Oh well... All the pics were shot with my Nikon D3100 using
the 18-55mm lens. I arrived back here with over 200 shots and put them
all into an
album which you can see here.
May 17, 2013. A customized 1948 Ford Mercury parked outside
this house a few days ago. Here's
the photo album.
May 13, 2013. Last Saturday was the Centenary of Rail in the
Manning (Taree, Wingham). Two steam locos, several vintage carriages
and a diesel were on hand to take joy riders on local trips over the weekend
and Monday. The official presentation took place at 1:30 on Saturday after
dignitaries and guests arrived in Taree by steam locomotive from Wingham.
Speakers included NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell and Federal Member of Parliament
Rob Oakeshott. The Greater Taree City Band was on hand for festivities,
as was a group of bagpipers. Vintage cars and four members of the 16th
Australian Light Horse, Wingham, in ceremonial uniform, formed part of
the street parade. I shot both video and stills of the event. The video
footage will be edited over the next few days and posted on this page.
here for the photo album.
Update: May 15. And here's the edited video of the occasion!
