Old Wagon and Metal Cog Wheels
From a past era of equipment, view an old wooden wagon, used probably for a variety of cartage needs on the farm. Also see an old plough, now on view at a sugar cane farm, sitting beside the fields it worked over fifty years ago, in North Queensland. Large metal cogs can be seen here also, which once hauled fishing boats along rails and into their sheds beside the ocean in Southern Australia.

Remote communities are serviced by dentists who fly in regularly to look at peoples' teeth. Dentists can be in a community for days or a week. Aboriginal people in many communities have severe dental problems and dentists work quickly to ensure they can arrest dental decay and work on some major issues such as abscesses and teeth that need to be extracted.

Bhutan is very different to the other countries of south Asia with its low population density, tree-clad mountains and a traditional lifestyle that has been maintained by the country's rulers. Today cell phones and the internet may have arrived but still people wear the traditional gho and farm traditional crops. The country's focus on the environment and gross national happiness is evident where-ever you travel in Bhutan.
Angels are usually viewed as messengers of a supreme divine being, sent to do that being's tasks. The Christian concept shifted between the angel as a messenger of God and a manifestation of God himself. The physical appearance of angels varies, but many are depicted in human form. Although a popular belief is that angels were once human beings, most major religions deny such a view, and this position is held only by Latter Day Saints and the Baha'i Faith.

Northern Australia's most iconic fish, the barramundi, is caught from the wild but, because demand from restaurants and the public is so high, barramundi farming has been established as an industry.

Okefenokee Swamp, Georgia
Because of wildfires and drought, I had not been able to take a trip to the Okefenokee Swamp located in Georgia. The swamp is the largest "blackwater" swamp in the United States. This is due to the high peat content, which creates a rich black tannic acid. Because to the near blackness of the water, the reflections along the canal are near mirror perfect. It is quite amazing to be kayaking or canoeing all day among the alligators, not setting foot on dry land for days on end.
Chronological age and functional age are not necessarily the same. My images show that senior citizens generally are very active after retirement. Social activity contributes to the well-being of the elderly (as well as of those of other ages), and there are many opportunities for such activity. However, research has found that happiness in old people is not proportional to activity. Take a look also at my lightbox Grandparents and their grandchildren!

Tangalooma Wrecks, Moreton Island
Tanglooma Wrecks is made up of 15 vessels deliberately sunk to make a breakwall for smaller craft in around 1963. The wrecks are located a short walk up the beach from Tangalooma Island Resort. They are close enough to swim out to from the beach, though there are strong currents at times. The wrecks have provided a wonderful habitat for fish life, including crayfish and resident wobbegongs. They sit only a few meters under the water and therefore make excellent snorkelling adventures.
Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, is not only the stepping off point for treks in the Himalayas but also worthy of a visit in its own right.

It is easy to capture images of men and women on harvesting equipment . It is not so easy to depict the stresses, joys and mental anguish felt by the community during this busiest of times.

Tiger's Nest Monastery or Taktshang Goemba, or Paro Taktsang, is one of the symbols of Bhutan. Located in the Paro Valley, not far from the international airport, was originally built in 1692 but has had to be rebuilt after a fire destroyed it in 1998. This Himalayan Buddhist temple complex involves a trek up the mountainside to reach it, although part of the trek can be made on horseback if so desired .

Animals - Rock Wallaby.
The threatened species, Yellow-footed Rock Wallaby, (Petrogale xanthopus), inhabits limited areas in Australia. This area is the Warren Gorge in the Southern Flinders Ranges, South Australia. Due to massive hunting after European settlement (for their skins), drought combined with the competition for food with feral animals, such as goats and rabbits, domestic stock degradation to their environment, their populations are only found in a few small ranges in Australia.

Flowers grown in gardens are usually brightly coloured, often multi-coloured and with large blooms. Many are annuals but some live on for year after year. It doesn't matter where in the world you go, the same flowers keep reappearing - from Australia to Romania, Fiji to Hong Kong to Morocco.

Birds - Australian Bustard.
View images of the Australian Bustard - Ardeotis australis - in its wild habitat. These birds are very shy and an ellusive bird which is not often seen. They are difficult to photograph but I was lucky enough to capture these images at the Townsville Common, Queensland. Some images were taken in South Australia near Tumby Bay on Eyre Peninsula, where surprisingly, I saw a Bustard roaming on a road and a farm paddock. They are not usually seen in this area.
Animals - at the Zoo.
View animals from all over the world, at the Adelaide Zoo. All species are either threatened or endangered, due mostly to habitat loss in their country of origin. These images show them at play, feeding, on the lookout, or just having a relaxing preen.

North Stradbroke Island, Queensland
North Stradbroke Island is right on Brisbane's doorstep though it still has a laid back charm and old style beach holiday feel to it. It has a pristine natural beauty and there are no big resorts or the usual chain stores and fastfood joints. It is a popular holiday spot for Brisbane local's, particularly during school holidays and those who love camping, four-wheel driving and relaxing in nature. Point Lookout is located on the North Eastern side of the island and my favourite spot.
Fraser Island, Queensland
World Heritage Listed Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world. With pristine creeks, freshwater lakes, rainforest and white sandy beaches it is a natural wonder. The island is home to one of the purest strains of Dingo on the East Coast of Australia and the surrounding waters are a playground for migrating whales each year. It is popular with international tourists and locals with kilometres of beach for camping and four-wheel driving.
Old automobiles are categorized according to age. Car collectors talk, in chronological order, about antique cars, Brass Era cars, vintage cars and classic cars, but the classification criteria may vary between countries. A vintage car is usually defined as being built between 1919 and 1930, but this lightbox includes automobiles from 1911 to 1932. There are a couple of automobiles whose names you may not even have heard before.
