Roadside honesty

To be honest with you I don't know if this is purely an Australia thing. I've been to nearly 60 countries world wide and I don't recall seeing this custom anywhere else. Side of the road. Middle of nowhere. A little table with a cover set up offering local produce for sale. But nobody there... Continue Reading →

Food glorious food

Canoodling Galahs

This is one of my favourite images. When I first looked up at these two galahs, a small pink and grey parrot found here in Australia, the two birds were far apart from each other.
