    Unless they're 37 feet tall, I'd guess they used a ladder.


    Interesting decoration though. Perhaps titled Za waiting for Dickie.

    I saw her upon nearer view,
    A Spirit, yet a Woman too!
    Her household motions light and free,
    And steps of virgin liberty;

    Ensuite shower so you can spectate the brightly lit ablutions through glass from the more softly lit bed area a few meters away. Somehow vaguely reminiscent of a Thai soapie goldfish bowl experience.

    ....Luckily the ensuite dunny has a door that can be closed - so you don't have to sheepishly avoid eye contact while backing out a nasty-boy in the morning.

    Yes indeed Mount Tamborine.

    Windy day so little ephemeral clouds were quickly forming and dissolving on the fly as the mountain lifted the humid ocean air up and over the crest to the leeward westerly inland side of the range where the sun was setting.

    I get to make the shelter and boil the kettle while they went picking mushrooms, and once again we had the whole forest to ourselves.

    Winter is good for picking trumpet chanterelle and it's difficult to confuse with anything else.

    Trompetenpfifferling (Craterellus tubaeformis) rather than Pfifferilnge (Cantharellus cibarius). The former come out later and carry on through to December.

    They used to be my favourite - there was a forest near my grandmother's place and I'd stay with her on long week-ends (weekdays was boarding school) and I'd go hunting for Butterpilze, Pffferlinge, Steinpilze, Parasolpilz usw . . . she'd throw some butter in the pan, add the Pilze and - beautiful. Maybe a Pilz-omelette, Käsepilzomlelett oder wenn etwas besonderes zu Hand war - Pilz-Omelette mit Lachs.

    Here in NZ we only find Wiesenchampignons - nice, but a bit boring.

    A while back I visited the Dornier Museum Friedrichshafen.

    Post a photo a week, of anything/anywhere-fr-museum-jpg

    It is right next to a small regional airport. They have regular flights with a blimp. Didn't get a good shot of it.

    A water plane. At that time there were no sufficiently large airports. It was over 200km/h fast.

    After far too long being undecided, I finally bought the Nikon 200-500mm zoom today.

    This is my standard 35mm lens (50mm equivalent), without cropping, to get an idea:

    Post a photo a week, of anything/anywhere-nd_50mm-jpg

    This is a cropped in view of that red sphere on the 500mm (750 equiv)...

    Post a photo a week, of anything/anywhere-apt_red_ball-jpg

    That's taken hand held at 1/13s as a quick check giving an indication of how good the VR is on the lens.


    ...and a random pic of the woods for those that are missing winter...

    ^ Its max aperture is f5.6 throughout the 200-500 range but you can stop it down all the way to f32.

    It's heavy and is going to take a bit of getting used to as I expect to use it hand held most of the time.

    I don't have a photo, but imagine a bar in Pattaya winter setting surrounded by Teakdoor and Thai Visa posters fighting over 99 baht breakfast

    Very cool Troy

    Santa arrived last-night exactly 4 weeks early, to the hour, in the form of an email at 1.00am from a numerical xxxxx@qq.com email address which I recognised as being a Chinese email saying simply 'hello'

    I was going to ignore it, assuming it was Chinese spam, but my curiosity rover got the better of me and I searched my email history. Turned up a hit from April - Miss Mini Minx!

    A quick surge of excitement pulsed through my veins as she is a regular favourite in the imagination hall of fame wank bank

    By the time I had worked this out though a second email had arrived saying 'I am outside your house'

    It was at this point that I remembered that we had parted on rather testy terms following her discovery of Miss Mindanao's abandoned flip flops in the cupboard and her jumping to nefarious conclusions and storming off with her little coal black eyes smouldering.

    I feared she might have brought some brothers to offer me a cold serving of vengeance and locked the downstairs doors to greet the arrival party from the safety of the balcony.

    But it became clear from the little torch bobbing slowly along the driveway through the forest that she was alone so I went downstairs and outside. She then ran the last 20m towards me in the dark and I scanned her swinging hands nervously in the moonlight for a glint of a silver blade but she just threw her arms around me.

    It was only as I looked down at the top of her head that I remembered how hilariously tiny she is.

    Thank you Santa...

    This was Venus rising in the east as she fell into a pre-dawn slumber and shepherds watched their flocks (really needed a fixed f5.6 telephoto to do the dawn display justice)

    Post a photo a week, of anything/anywhere-img_20201127_055247-jpg


    This morning she was gone and is not replying to any messages today

    If I had not taken any photos I would have suspected I had dreamt the whole thing.
