All Australians bathe outdoors. It's the law.

Whirpool of Death!

Boring things become super-interesting if you just get close enough. Then you can say stuff like:
This represents the swirling whirlpool of death as it sucks my soul screaming into an oblivion of hopelessness and despair. Wordlessly I cry out for a hero to rescue me, or at least to avenge these fears... or failing that to bring me a frozen yogurt. Strawberry please.

This is a photo of a hat.

Well, you know, truth in advertising.

Lesson Two

In which we show that an object generally considered photogenic, possibly even romantic - ie, a lighthouse - can be quite dull, if you pick the right subject.

Lesson Two

As an aside, notice how I got the grass leaning at almost exactly the same angle as the clouds. This was quite difficult, and required hours of strenuous bending, and definitely has nothing whatsoever to do with that spot being as windy as, well, as windy as an extremely windy spot.

I Have the Power(Edge)

The Dell Poweredge 2300 is an old Pentium 2 server. It weighs half a tonne, and is incredibly noisy; or it would be noisy, if I ever turned the thing on. I use it to prop up my desk, which would otherwise collapse under the weight of, well, not much at all. It's just a really crappy desk.

There are kangaroos in Australia. You will often see them wandering aimlessly through the streets of Sydney.

Captured here are a couple of the fascinating critters marching on the front lawn of parliament house; demanding voting rights and free beer. I don't think they were really serious about the voting thing.

Lesson One

People often ask me, "What does it take to be the least popular weblog in the universe?"

Lesson One

Crappy photographs: A picture paints a thousand words, but it doesn't have to. Not if it is done right. When creating images you might like to imagine a sheet of paper with the word "boring" printed a thousand times.

Really focus on... no, cancel that - avoid focus wherever possible.

Welcome to the least popular weblog in the universe. Bacon anybody?
