CHEATED DEATH: Grant Denyer has survived a horror crash while driving at speeds of up to 160kmh during a rally race in Victoria. His shocked wife, Chezzi, told the Herald Sun the crash was a “freak accident”. http://trib.al/QH3F8ql
After a really long night of shooting Aurora we were almost home at 4:30am when we looked up from our car windscreen to see an explosion of green dancing above us in the sky!
We pulled over the side of the road, desperately looking for places we could shoot nearby...but then we realised "why not here?!" Lol 😂
The road was the perfect leading line into the streaming Aurora overhead & we absolutley love how it turned out…what do you guys think? :)
For those interested in how we took this, it is a single image captured on the Nikon D810 + 14-24mm Lens. Camera settings were: 3” | f/2.8 | ISO4000. For anyone interested in a ‘One on One’ photography workshop, or some excellent prices on any NiSi Filters Australia and New Zealand, feel free to send us a message!
He's a little bit sheepish so I hope you'll all show him some famous Life of Piker love with a welcome back.
Myself, Fatty, the Spinsters but particularly the rents, are all exhausted. So before you fire off a billion questions here is everything I can say.
- PJ's adoptive family were lovely and throroughly interviewed with a home check & introduction to the two other staffy girls in the family prior to adoption. - After adoption handover yesterday morning PJ was re-introduced to the whole family. - One of the older staffy gals did not appreciate PJ's playing style or his puppyish nature of being totally oblivious to her personal space. - Things progressed over night and by this morning it was decided that for everyone involved it would be better for PJ to return back to HQ where the search for a perfect forever family can continue. - This outcome while disappointing, is still a success. It was utterly heartbreaking for this family to make the decision that they did. Please be respectful and mindful when commenting. - PJ's return is very different from when Pekoe came back. The difference here is that is just wasn't the right fit for PJ. Puppy Pekoe returned last year because the original adopters did not fulfil their terms of his adoption contract, he was removed.
Now before you say it.... No the rents will not be adopting PJ for Fatty. This is just not in the script.
Maybe one day far into the future then rents will be able to add more to our family of four forever pups. But right now it's just not on the cards. So please also be gentle on the rents. Fostering is so important, I know you all know that. For the rents to keep on fostering pup after pup after pig they really need the full support of my Life of Pikers to be on board with the notion that not every foster kid (no matter how much they look like Fatty) can stay forever.
Both Ma & Pa have some huge impending personal and professional commitments at the moment, so for the next few days both PJ and the Pepper kittens will just make the usual appearances here on LoP doing normal stankass fur baby stuff. Once the rents can focus and dedicate the time needed on the adoption process for all four babies, they will each get their 15 minutes of fame and I hope you'll all jump in and help by sharing their adoption profiles far and wide.
This kid. So hilarious, but so damn full of energy. Someone please explain to me how to keep up with the demands of a highly energetic 2 (almost 3) year old? It's literally never ending!!! I know I only have one of him, but one of him is enough to have made me just go buy a bottle of red wine that Jaryd totally thinks we're sharing. Little does he know. Don't get me wrong - I love how active he is. But holy cow. Holy big fat cow.
I think its great that they have made a bronze statue of Kevin Bartlett. I just love it when clubs immortalise their legends. I remember how proud I was the day my club hung my photo on the wall behind the bar. Admittedly there was a sign under it saying "This guy is never to be served alcohol again" but its still up there and nobody can take that away from me.
We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our elderly African Elephant, Cuddles, this morning after a recent illness. Cuddles was the Zoo’s longest residing animal and the last African Elephant in Australia. We are all mourning the loss of this beautiful animal. She will be greatly missed and her passing represents the end of an era for African Elephants in Australia. Farewell Cuddles
