Hi there!

It's been the most enjoyable 2 weeks I've ever had for a long time! We went to Melbourne, did the Great Ocean Road, saw the magnificent 12 Apostles, went to Philip Island, then to Tasmania, highlight there is definitely the beautiful Cradle Mountain and many many more!

One bad news though, darling wife accidentally dropped my Olympus C-4000 and the lense got stucked. I tried to push it back to the body but it got even worse. I brought it to a camera repair shop and the man there said anything to do with fixing the lense will cost a bomb. It is more worthwhile to buy a new one. But luckily I brought along my film SLR, so here's some of the pics.... enjoy :clap:

1. 12 Apostles (Great Ocean Rd)
2. Cradle Mountain & Dove Lake (Tasmania)
3. Flinders St, Melbourne
4. Loch Ard Gorge (Great Ocean Rd)
5. Constitution Dock, Hobart (Tasmania)

After 3 months with just 2 paintings to show, I'm starting again with 12 Apostles... but without a digicam, it will take a while to show you my effort.

Cheers!

Marvin,

Congratulations once again on your wedding and best wishes for a long and happy life with Adeline (even if she did drop your digi-camera :angel: ).

Your photos are spectacular, the colors are really beautiful. Looking forward to seeing your painting of the 12 Apostles!
