Now we move onto Saint-Louis-du-Ha! Ha! in Quebec. Apparently the "Ha! Ha!" refers to an archaic French use of "haha" to refer to an unexpected obstacle, in this case the nearby Lake Témiscouata. Or maybe some cartographer was just having a laugh. The exclamation marks, unfortunately, are not official but a colloquial addition.

Let's get this show on the road with one of the best "right time right place" photos. Yeah, I've shared it before. I don't care!

You're not going to pull much of an all-nighter at that rate!

I, uh, don't think any wagons are going to be shunted onto this siding by Dynon Road, North Melbourne in a hurry.

I like how you can see the city in the NM shot. Some of your photos remind me of Jeffrey Smart paintings in their subject and composition - and that's a good thing.

Wow, praise for my photos.

Maybe I should invest in a decent camera. I'm thinking of buying a proper video camera, as the video quality on this still digital camera is rather unimpressive.

You should definitely think about it, that would add a whole new layer of awesome to your photos.

Did you know I photograph yachts?

Well, I did once anyway, while I was waiting for a train in New Zealand in January. This is at the entrance to the southern arm of Porirua Harbour, some 25 or so minutes north of Wellington.

It's almost eerie, you know. My Grandpa was the photographer of the family. Always was. Had the best and latest cameras and everything. When he was in the Tangiwai disaster, part of the reason he was on the train was to photograph and film Mount Ruapehu at night, as he had seen it on an earlier trip and had been captivated by it.

I didn't even have my own digital camera until Christmas last year. My film camera had long since vanished. I've never shown an interest in photography really, at least not until the middle of last year. But the more Grandpa's health declined, the more I found myself using the camera, and ever since he died in early February, I've been photographing all the time. The day he died, I felt compelled to go photograph the sunset (my Desert Island IV tracklist's cover is one of those photos). I now carry my camera on me at all times.

Of course, you only photograph something else while waiting for a train.

Looks like a really nice place, the hill wouldn't look out of place at Yorke Peninsula.

Further to my last photo, here's all of the southern arm of Porirua Harbour.

This is the view from my father's house. Just amazing.
