Night and Day Photographs

(Mt Isa city of Lights) you would think so taking a photograph at night from the look out. Alas it is a small mining town in Queensland.I was shocked to see the active mine right on the bustling door step of the town. Bizarre? I thought.

Our stop for the next week. Camped outside the RSL. We are hanging out here so we have mobile connection. Rod's Dad was in hospital having open heart surgery. He is out now, however he struggled in intensive care for the whole week. We decided to make our way to Hervey Bay to welcome him home. While we were here in Mt Isa they had Australia's biggest Rodeo. Yeeha!
   
Cowboy Corral


Bull riding


The burning of the big bull


Side show Alley, remember the Zipper for all you Aussie's, I think I would puke now!

My laptop doesn't have a copyright symbol. I can find one in Word under bullets.

Those night photos were awesome but I, too, wonder at a mining town right next to a city....

The rodeo looks like fun. I can still ride roller coasters, but not if they go round and round. Then I'd be the one puking! :)
