It belongs to the imperfection of everything human that man can only attain his desire by passing through its opposite


A jetty and some boats. Dover (I think...). Southern Tasmania. June 2011.

One of the challenges of taking photographs from a moving vehicle is remembering which town exactly the photo was taken. I'm pretty sure that this is Dover, Australia second most southern-most town. Any Dover-ites are more than welcome to correct me...

That's the trouble with fleeting trips. The memory lags behind the event, and in order to fill in gaps, we develop a tendency to reconstruct events. Clearly the fleeting few seconds that we spent in Dover (or some other town), was not enough!

And here I was thinking you had a photographic memory.

A perfect picture.

Roddy, never.

Carola, it may have been even better if we slowed down!
