Photo of the day – Devon, England

I worked in Devon for  a few months back in 2001 in a small bed and breakfast on the Dingle Peninsula. I loved the patchwork quilt like fields and the narrow lanes with the hedges. If you were walking or driving down the lanes it could be pretty difficult to pass another vehicle, particularly when the vehicle was also pushing sheep down the road like this one.

Photo of the day – Kinloch, New Zealand

I spent a few days at Kinloch earlier in the year, a tiny little hamlet around from Glenorchy at the head of Lake Wakatipu. As the sunset one evening, gorgeous shadows fell across the surrounding mountains.

Photo of the day – Aboriginal cowboy

The skill at which these Aboriginal cowboy worked up in northern Western Australia was amazing. I was out on a cattle station accompanying a road train driver, writing a piece about life on the road, and we visited Lissadell Station where several hundred head of cattle had been mustered and were to be taken to the port of Wyndham.

The ringers had mustered the cattle and while we were having smoko (morning tea) these cowboys came through. I managed to get a few photographs of them before they departed. The manager of the station sung their praises and ability with the horses.

Photo of the day – Ho Chi Minh City kids

I’m due in Vietnam next week, so with that in mind here’s an image of some kids I saw during my last visit in 2007 near the Ho Chi Minh stilt house. They were on some kind of school excursion and were holding the shirts of those in front so no one got lost and waving with their other arms.
