Why this site??

Some background for those who may have stumbled across this site.
The author is a babyboomer with a longtime interest in photography, wildlife and a dabbler in computing.
My first digital camera was a Nikon coolpix 880 aquired in August 2000. The Konica-Minolta 5D SLR with the 18 to 70mm and 75 to 300mm lens kit purchased October 2005 was the first DSLR and took the hobby to a new plane.
In October 2006 the addition of a Sigma 50- 500mm lens opened even more horizons.
The proximity of Braeside Park in Melbourne's South East, makes photography in the park the most popular for this site.
Other gear added;
Sigma 17-70mm lens October 2007
Sony Alpha 700 body Jan 2008
Tamron SP 180mm Di IF F3.5 macro added Feb 2009
Sony A99 and SAL2470CZ added Jan 2013

There are intended to be three areas on this site...
1. Photographs of wildlife taken in Braeside Park.
2. Photographs of Australian animals, reptiles and birds taken outside the confines of Braeside.
3. Playpens of photographs
