Merry Man In .... Australia!?!

So.... I decided to take a wee holiday. On this holiday, I had several key priorities. In fact, you can see them clearly reflected in my Aviators

Of course, the Aviator lens on the left is a picture of my dear brother, Kurt, who has been carousing around Australia with reckless abandon for the past few months.
Here is some topless reckless abandon to get this photo - preview - party rolling!

Note the family resemblance, which manifests itself most clearly in our shared expression of the "crazy booze drinking", "hamming for the camera" and "sunglasses of choice" genes.


One of the things I was really looking forward to is a nice change from Japan. It helps to get some outside persepective, after all. As such...here is the first picture on my camera: the ride to the airport

Brisbane was cool. Like a regular city, but oddly full of Australians.

We visited a rainforest, which was stunning.

In fact, it was beautiful enough that I even manufactured some horribly awful "pondering" shots.
