Shot Notes

This is Coopernook Forest Park in New South Wales, Australia. Normally Karen takes a photo of our van at every place we stay. As she is not here this time I thought I should keep up the tradition. In the small hours of Monday morning, I dropped off Karen at Sydney Airport. She has just started a 10-hour stopover in Dubai before her flight back to the UK. We have been getting annual return flights from the UK since we first arrived in Australia in 2011. I am not joining Karen this year to qualify for Australian Citizenship at the end of 2015. This is the first time in over a decade I have been travelling without Karen and it feels different. The last time was the lap of Jamaica in 2004. I was in the final stages of planning that trip when we first met and discovered a mutual love for travel so we arranged to journey through Cuba together and had a magical time. I am looking forward to her return to the land down under.

    Well done! I was wondering if anyone would notice. It was a Photoshopped image. I would not waste money on anything so frivolous when there are lenses to buy :-)
