These two - Gary and Caroline - are heading for big things.... and it was great to do a photo shoot with them... so remember you saw them here first!
Well we caught up with Geoff for a quick bite to eat... it was great to catch up with him after such a long time.
Sometimes things catch your eye when your wandering around.... this image will become one of a series I'm thinking of doing called "Alphabet"
Just going through some images I took during winter and came across this one.... hope you like it
A couple of images from the Monkey Forest in Bali in Ubud. A really nice place to go, unless your afraid of monkeys! Hundreds of the little buggers! The one with Paul was absolutely fascinated with the coconut as it was rattling and he wanted what was inside. The image with the little monkey and the red blob is interesting... the red blob, ice cream. Just goes to show that little people and little monkeys like ice cream... though he didn't like how cold it was... it was hilarious as he would take a lick and then squeal, then back for more....
Whilst in San Francisco, Paul also managed to catch up with these two scamps who were out and about... on the left Evan, who was at the ASH meeting from Perth too, and on the right, our great mate Vince.
Well every couple of years the American Society of Haematology (ASH) is in SF and we both usually go and take a month off and catch up with our good mates Vince and Ron. This year was one of those years, however with the current financial gloom and the not so good Australian dollar we decided that only Paul would go and do ASH, and we would go to India in February... well that was until the recent terrorist attacks in India! Anyway I digress... SF.
OK, as you can guess I have been a bit slack on the updates... oh well, its been busy!
Cologne Cathedral (German: Kölner Dom, officially Hohe Domkirche St. Peter und Maria) is the seat of the Archbishop of Cologne, under the administration of the Roman Catholic Church and is renowned as a monument of Christianity, of Gothic architecture and of the faith and perseverance of the people of the city in which it stands. It is dedicated to Saint Peter and the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The cathedral is a World Heritage Site, being one of the best-known architectural monuments inGermany, and Cologne's most famous landmark, described by UNESCO as an "exceptional work of human creative genius". Cologne Cathedral is one of the world's largest churches, being the largest Gothic church in Northern Europe. For four years, 1880-84, it was the tallest structure in the world, until the completion of the Washington Monument. It has the second-tallest church spires, only surpassed by the single spire of Ulm Cathedral, completed ten years later in 1890. Because of its enormous twin spires, it also presents the largest façade of any church in the world.
A bit of a late post... but Paul escaped to Denmark in June, just the start of summer for a 3 day conference. Took him three days to get there and back for three day meeting.... thats hard work. Images are from the train and the entrance to the Tivoli Gardens.
