Precious Moments

While living in Australia I was asked by a lady to photograph her children for dress patterns she had made.  I just discovered the 20 plus year old slides in a box.  I am a little bummed at their quality but the pictures are very precious.

The girls are not looking happy in a few as they were supposed to be upset that their kite got stuck in a tree…..

Sleeping Koala

Sleeping Koala - Victoria, Australia
Sleeping Koala – Victoria, Australia

Finding a Koala in the wild in Australia is not as difficult as you might think.  They are nocturnal and sleep through most of the day so it is a matter of finding a eucalyptus grove away from the city.  Start walking around looking about 10-15′ above the ground.  They are rather large and I was usually able to find them.

Australian Golf Hazards

I golfed here 2 or 3 times a year.  Some times it required shooing the kangaroos off the greens with a putter.  They were rather friendly but they can cause bodily damage so caution was always in the back of your mind.  It really, in hindsight, was very surreal.

Postcards from Oz

A long time ago I took a 4 year adventure to Australia, also called Oz by the locals.  Still hard to believe I was there……..

These are scanned from prints and hopefully someday I can get all of my negatives scanned and share more of this……
