The first shot is exceptional. I think we (Hawaii) have a worthy competitor in Austratlia when it comes to beaches..

The near and far aspect especially in the fisrt shot is quite well done.

If the 1974 is an indicator or your age, maybe so, Paul.

I have grown to like the movie. Kept seeing bits in the beginning and thought it was crazy. But, once I'd seen it from beginning to end, I loved it. That and Top Gun are movies watched again and again in our household. Quoted quite often.

Hi Steve

That's great you (like me) enjoy citing quotes from the Princess Bride film. One of my favourites: "Now, where were we? Ah yes, Australia!" (ok... I'm biased!)

Maybe I should try to sell as postcards to raise funds for more camera fun! :-)



You're right... Hawaii definitely has great beaches too... from what I've seen (including some photos of yours). Surfers rave about it too.

Thanks for appreciating the shots, esp the 1st one. Aloha


Hi Patty / Nhmom (or should I say "pjmum")... yes, 1974 is a very good indicator of my date of birth... :G In fact I can tell you I was born 31 August 1974... and strangely enough the same day as my twin (though not all twins are born on the same day!) I'm 60.5kgs, blonde hair, 172cm tall, etc, etc. Many more details available. But I won't provide you my bank details though... unless you want to put funds into it!! :blah:

I've only seen Top Gun one time (when I was quite young, I think it was soon after it was released on TV). I think that was the first movie I remember with Tom Cruise as actor. Maybe I should look up Top Gun again if it gets your recommendation.... Cheers.
