|Statue of an Antarctic seal|
I am picking up Elaine from Random Jottings blog this afternoon at 1:25 from the airport and I have a whirlwind of adventure planned for her. I will probably wear both of us out but it should be great fun.

Nothing like getting over confident but already I have dipped into the Australian Digital Photography magazine and found some amateur contests. I think they will give me the motivation to tuck the camera in storage under the seat (carefully packaged of course) of my scooter and head in different directions taking photos to enter in competitions where I might win magazine subscriptions, camera lenses and who knows what else. I will need to work my way up to one of the expensive prizes of a trip to Antarctica or an African safari. These contests cost nothing to enter so I might as well aim big.
|A Pacific Gull|
The first contest I decided to attempt is Statues. The competition is held through Viewbug and only one entry is allowed for this particular one.
I went down to the Hobart waterfront a couple of days ago as there are statues there attributed to Mawson's exploration of Antarctica as well as Abel Tasman's exploration into Tasmania.
|Penguins discussing the weather perhaps?|
|The Dutch Explorer Abel Tasman|
|Part of Tasman's shipping fleet.|
Now I just need to work out which one I may submit. This is my shortlist.
