This is the westering sun seen behind Anzac Bridge, which is just down the hill from us.

Australia's (& "the Southern Hemisphere's") first "shopping - community centre" - Roselands - opened on October 11th, 1965.
Its centrepiece and symbol was the Raindrop Fountain: 15 miles of clear nylon thread suspended from the ceiling, with drops of water constantly trickling down into a pool.
It was removed in a remodelling project in 1988. A new, quite different fountain was recently installed.

I love eating quince raw slice by raw slice—the knife is my favourite quince treatment. All of the quince's unique smell is retained. The sound of the knife going through the flesh is something I enjoy, as is holding the fruit in my hand. It is a wonderful feeling fruit, having a quite human skin.
The mouth-feel of raw quince is wonderful, too, if you like it (and I love it).
On cold days, though, there's nothing to beat baked quince and oatmeal with cream.

It's not really that difficult, although it took me a while to get the hang of it. On automatic settings, you will usually overexpose neon (because the camera reacts to all the darkness around it), and you won't get the rich colors. So now I use shutter speed priority mode. I usually start at ISO 200, 1/80 of a second (which was the setting for this photo), and then re-shoot it once with a faster shutter speed, and once with a slower shutter speed, just to make sure I get one shot that comes out well. — tspauld (Tom Spaulding)
I'm not sure if I should break this down into smaller sub-sets, such as all the ones taken around Macquarie Harbour and Strahan, all the ones around Hobart and those around Devonport, plus a set of ones taken while travelling between the three main places I stayed; or breaking them down into landscapes, cityscapes, seascapes, plants, places, people; or whatever.
I will have to find a different place to store the video clips I also took with the digital camera.
By Sea between Sydney & Tasmania (A Flickr Photoset - work in progress) This will include both the journey down and back, scenes of Sydney and Devonport as well as of the ship itself and sea-scenes from it.

Wild Neighbors at Dharma Bums (another type of cat)

This rather remnds me of some of my Ocean Beach photos from the west coast of Tasmania — the dark sand, wide beach, mountains in the distance up the coast beyond the mist of spray above the waves.
Have I posted them here? <CHECKS>
No. I haven't put any of the photos from my time in Tasmania here yet. I've loaded quite of a few them up to flickr.com, but not by any means the majority yet, or sorted. Here's a link to the set page (www.flickr.com/photos/87756698@N00/sets/1529859)
The first batch was a chunk of nice scenes that would make good desktop backgrounds for computers, but only at 640 x 480 size, I'm a bit thingy about trying to leave some kind of ID on them so if people use them there's an acknowledgement (I do try to put something so that you can find the original &/or the originator of photos here.)
So many other things to do, I haven't had the time & energy to do much sorting, labelling & heavy uploading.
