  • In this world of non existent discipline and disrespect I believe you to be 100% correct.
  • Thanks for dropping in and commenting--We travelled from Melbourne to Port Augusta (the longer way 1150KM's) to take this train journey as a feature of a recent holiday and a return to the ...
  • Fabulous and incredibly appealing but I wouldn't be surprised if Jay 'Weatherdill' bans them soon because of their coal burning sins. Ha Ha. Compliments of the season to you. Cheers, JB
  • We did Ray and we were , well not really waited on but very well informed by personal running commentary about the history of the railway. Merry X'mas to you and family.
  • On a recent visit to Outback South Australia we took a trip on an old steam train that runs as a tourist attraction on the "narrow gauge" rail from Port Augusta to Quorn in the southern Flinders ...
  • Hi Ray , Merry X'mas and a great year of photography in 2018. Were these "Cocky's" in your "bushland "backyard, if so it was very kind of them to present themselves. Don't see many of these in the ...
  • Thanks for the replies but at 4 each I'm still not sure whether to commit.  A few more responses could influence my final decision. John
  • I recently experienced a catastrophic crash of my computer (Motherboard Blew its Stack}and am now considering installing the Photographic version of CC after having my old computer replaced. Those ...
  • It is quite sometime since I have been here, but for no other reason that I have been extremely busy renovating our home,  What a shock to now see confirmation of Geoff's passing. John King ...
  • Excellent series of photos Martin, you being from Adelaide have easy access to the Flinder's Ranges, somewhat further to travel from Melbourne, but when we did go it was an extremely enjoyable ...

    The boredom of this continual negativity is nauseating. JB
  • The E1 may not have all the features of the newer M4/3 models, but as sure as God made little apples it is still a very capable photographic tool. The combo of E1 and 14/54 is hard to toss in the ...
  • Replied in This may help.
    This may help, I had a similar problem some time ago with my E30. I removed the eye piece and put a single very narrow strip of masking tape along the vertical edges--It has never come adrift ...
  • After looking further I find the earlier "Japonica" photo I posted is often referred to as " The Japanese Quince Flower" a deciduous species It is fruit bearing under the right conditions (sun) but ...

    Good for you Rich, yes it is heavier but it really was a piece of ergonomic magic by Olympus. I have 2 of them and one  is virtually unused, with less than a thousand activations a bit of a show ...

    Yes still  great photography tools, which I don't use tha much anymore having the OMD Em1 and a few M4/3 lenses but I won't part with the old champs (I have 2 0f them) Best to you Rich, John
  • Hi WhyNot, "Quince Japonica" -- scientific name (chaenomeles)--hoping this makes it clearer, I'm certainly no expert when it comes to the names of flowers, but I very much admire their beauty. Cheers,

    Thanks Andrew, and I must research why that behaviour happens, it really is quite different. Cheers, John.
  • Replied in Japonica
    There's one really good reason that this flower doesn't look like a Camellia, because it is a Japonica. Maybe you just had a quick look at my photo without referring to the text. Anyhow it really ...
