    Excellent capture David, love it. Sometimes the B&W works real well.

    Thanks :)
    Yeah I looked at it in colour, and the croc was greeny brown and so was the water, it just wasn't that great, but in b&w the shape of the croc really comes out.

    Ha, nicely spotted Dave - but I bet he spotted you first hehe
  • David de Groot said:
    Quite possibly ;-) Although given how dirty the glass was, maybe not. Thank $DEITY for paper towels ;-)

    You caught that prehistoric menancing look very well. I like the head on the diagonal too, I think it adds interest.

    Hey! Hi Michelle. Been a while. Heading out to the flickr meet at BFP tomorrow ?
  • Out_and_About said:
    I didn't know there was a flickr meet on!
    Where or what is BFP?
    I should go and find the brisbane flickr group.....
  • Out_and_About said:
    ok - I found the information at the flickr meetup forum. I see that we are to meet at BRP office - where is that? I'm trying to find it on Google maps but see a couple of roads into the area but not sure on which one to take.
  • David de Groot said:
    You head to The Gap (up Waterworks Rd), and keep going. It turns into Mt Nebo Rd about where the BFP HQ is (can't miss it, big signs out front).

    Scary! I wouldn't go swimming there.

    I'd hope not! I believe there are penalties for climbing into the animal enclosures at the zoo :P
