The church still stands on Geelong’s Moorabool Street.

Alas, I think the tree is no longer and the church

is surrounded by used cars.

missed opportunity

missing an occasion or situation that makes it possible 
to do something that you want to, or have to do,

On our last morning Botswana’s

Elephant Sands…


…I sighted this Red Breasted Weaver

doing its morning callisthenics…

Suddenly it let go of the branch and fell several feet.

Had I not been photographing it I would

have missed the opportunity to capture

the bird in freefall.







salt white

Though some salts are coloured (pink.. grey… etc…)

this is due to the inclusion of other elements within the salt.

Pure sodium and chloride crystals which compose salt

will appear and therefore make salt appear white


When we visited Botswana’s

Lekhubu Island,

in 2014…

…we spent several hours driving across

Sua Pan, which forms part of the

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.

Makgadikgadi Pans are the largest salt pans…

in the world, covering an area

of over 30,000 square km.

This scene stopped me in my tracks

a week or so ago.

paths trails

a path through a countryside, mountain, or forest area,

often made or used for a particular purpose.


These track in Sauage Tree Safari Camp grounds…

…were reminiscent of many tracks I had travelled

on my way to work in New South Wales. 

Once off the road I was faced with criss crossing trails

and only felt better about it when my

travelling companion said

…don’t worry they all lead to the (Wool) Shed.


After several hours seemingly following

old wheel ruts through Botwswana’s

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans…


…we eventually arrived at our destination,

Lekhubu Island








Taji and Candi…


…in their…

…younger days.
