Karla's artistic side has been growing rapidly of late. Her free-hand drawings continue to impress me, and I think you'd all be amazed at how well she is playing classical guitar after only 4 weeks. She can already read music!! Crickey!!! I'll post a video a little later. Below is a foal she drew this morning...heck of a lot better than I could have done at age 10!

|Just outside the town of Williams, heading towards Wagin, I took this photo showing|
what some of the the paddocks are looking like down that way. Pretty dry.
|A closer view, showing that sheep condition is still quite good despite the dry.|
|An early morning photo of the AWTA-AGRIFOOD-FEEDTEST stand|
at Wagin Woolorama. In 2012 we'll be in a larger area with more elaborate displays.
|Andrew and Rob discussing some soil and grain testing options with one of|
the local growers.
|Andrew during his radio interview at Woolorama.|
|A relaxed moment during which Math & Rob were part of a make-shift band.|
Rob won praise, but Math (apparently) needs more practise with the triangle, haha!
|Some of the local girls with the bush-utes, some with fuller figures...|
|While at Woolorama Rob spotted a stall selling Spiderman suits, so I had|
to buy one for Eugene. Yes, he is going through the "I am Spiderman" phase.

|Some of the sculptures on Cottesloe Beach at sunset. I did not have my tripod,|
so it is not the best image.
|A rather elaborate sand castle built below the high-tide mark, meaning it would be gone|
in less than 6 hours.
|The same castle photographed at f/32, with the camera perched on a rock and using the|
mirror lock-up function. This is the smallest I can set my 17-85mm lens' aperture, and at
ISO100 it required a 30 second long exposure.
|The laughing red baby - another one of the sculptures on display. In this image I|
intentionally processed the shadows to be very dark, and also de-saturated
the red levels in the image.
The Fishing Expedition - An Update
|Eugene with the very first fish he ever caught all by himself! He was very excited and proud.|
|Karin with her best effort of the day. I caught nothing, zero, niks!|
|A last image. Two nights ago Eugene was helping me with the edge trimmer|
while I mowed the lawn.

|Eugene & Karla with their new 6' Spinning sets. Both have nice little Jarvis Walker reels. |
Karla wanted a pink one and Eugene a green one. He could hardly fall asleep for his arvo nap with the excitement and anticipation.
|Doing some "practise reeling" in the kitchen...nearly lost some eyes in the process!|
|Karla with my Okuma kit and also holding Karin's 7' Shimano set, both ex-NZ.|
