Default The dedication of a serious collector

How many photos from how many angles can a collector take?

And all out of focus, poor guy.........
(I know, I know, it's a kind of joke).
It would've been easier to have just etched his postcode on it.

Haha but you're right. I do take out of focus photos.

Prancing on the tip of a wing like an angel dancing on a pin head.

That's me when I was 20, WY (Wyoming for people who don't know what WY is) 1976. I worked for one of the large cattle outfits there.

The long hot summer of '76, warm work hard targeting around the Falls Road in a flak jacket. Could've done with a horse. Wouldn't have had to scrub it down with fuel due to the water shortages either, unlike the Land Rovers and trucks.

On a serious note I guess most of us have choices. Mine at 19 was working on cattle ranches (the reason I went to the US the first time), the military or Korean martial arts. In those days joining the US military meant giving up Australian citizenship which I wasn't prepared to do. It's different today.
I chose cowboying which led to two years in the US and five in Australia including managing a 7000 acre (2800 ha) cattle property with 2000 head.
Looked at the military twice more, once in 1977 and later when I was in my early 40's.

So a simple Gap Year doing the Earls Court Walkabout working as a barman didn't appeal then?
Some of us just leave school and settle into the army followed by a touch of the boring sensibles.
