A Day out with the Boys

A couple of mates from the Camera Club have asked me to go out with them on photo shoots every now and then. The Blogger was out playing tennis this morning, so Will, Michael and and I went into town to walk on the brand new river walk at New Farm. It was a cool morning to begin with but it ended up quite warm.

The river walk was washed away by the big floods a couple of  years ago. At the time is was a floating construction, not able to withstand the strong river flow during a big flood.

The new construction is now solid, so that it can withstand anything the river throws at it. (So they say).

 Then it was coffee time. New Farm, a Yuppie suburb is full of decent coffee shops. So we picked the nearest one for a cappuccino.

Then the house pet walked into the place,

You see right. It's a chook.

It's quite used to customers and doesn't mind picking up morsels.

And finally we ended up at the Story Bridge for a panorama
We'll do it again soon, I'm sure.

Model Railway ExpoMy favourite

The All Gauge Model Train Club had an expo in their club house at Carina this weekend. We went to have a look.

My favourite - The Yukon-White Pass Railroad from Skagway in Alaska to the YukonValley in Canada. We've been on it.

There was even a band playing on this station 

I also made a short video of the trains, especially my favourite one, The White Pass and Yukon Railroad from Skagway in Alaska to the Yukon Valley in Canada, which we travelled on a few years ago.

My Grandson - The Entertainer

My grandson is entertaining foreign students (or maybe lecturing them) at UCLA. Or perhaps he is performing a magic trick for them. No matter what, they are enthralled.

You show them, mate!
Or maybe it's his blond hair.
