What do you get when MYER burns to the ground?

I really feel for the 100-200 employees of MYER affected by the fire.  Apparently the city council is looking at allowing MYER to use one of the big sheds down on the wharf, until a better location is found, or until the demolition and re-building is complete.

I was thinking to myself this morning how I desperately needed some sort of excitement, some sort of adrenalin rush.  Well I didn't expect my prayers to be answered so soon.  I decided to pop over to work this afternoon to pick up my laptop when I heard about the fire at Myer, Hobart on the radio.  I could see the smoke coming up but didn't think that much more of it, I just assumed it would be under control shortly.  10 minutes later I came out of work and the smoke volume had intensified dramatically over Hobart.  At this point I decided to dash home and grab my camera (and flatmate Abi) and head on down.

Apparently it was started by an electrical fault, somewhere near the lingerie and cosmetics departments...

Down On The Farm...

Down On The Farm

Hi Folks, I have recently already edited and uploaded some of my photos from this weekend's outing down at Alice's Parents New Farm at Koonya, Tasman Peninsula. A great time was had by all in the stunning early spring weather.  

These photos have been edited with Picassa, not Photoshop, and I have not bothered to add borders as yet.

Many more pics are available at my facebook page.…

I'm here snowboarding (primarily) for the next 8 days.  There is some bad weather forecast around the end of the week, so there may well be some spare time to take some proper photos!  I now own a compact but high-quality point and click type camera, so I'll be taking that up the slopes in my pocket for some snow photos too.

Take care all.
