This time of the year again

I was very glad to read that Sea Shepherd have another fantastic vessel joining their fleet after the upsetting events that happened last year to Ady Gil.

Gojira looks like taken from the Giant Robot cartoons I grew up with in the 70s. I wish it's as powerful and successful as those super heroes. We, the whales and the world need this so badly!

I'd like to wish these men and women good luck and a successful Whale Wars season. Time for the good to start winning.

How extremely exciting!


Narelle Badalassi, a fantastic artist from Tasmania, has just sent me copies of the linocuts of Australian birds she did, based on some of my photos.

The exhibition is on at the Salamanca Arts Centre in Hobart at the moment, so if you're there make sure you don't miss it!

I find it extremely exciting to see my photos turn into great artwork and am so glad that Narelle chose to use them as inspiration...

Check out her blog to see all the awesome stuff she's been working on!

And these are some posts which show the progress of the work on the linocuts: click, click, click, click and click.

Tawny Frogmouth for the PoAA birthday

I have a calendar on my PC desktop and for 7th October it says "PoAA Birthday". That's why all the posting activity today on this otherwise abandoned bloG. Well... I'm still alive and I'm taking photos.

Double space is a clear sign of hesitation

If you encounter a text where the author has pressed space bar twice, there's usually only one explanation: an edit that was not done properly! Double spaces are a clear sign of hesitation.
