Jim van Ommen's conversations

In one of the least densely populated countries in the world we huddle together as if space was at a premium. Instead of spreading our wings we build higher and higher at disproportionate costs and destroy our ambiance as well as our heritage. Tower of Babel all over again. As for our compounding problems in providing the necessary infrastructure, well that is another story but one of even greater proportions. Decentralization is a concept floated for political grandstanding but never gets of the ground. The cities to us humans are as the honeycomb to the bees, but we are running out of trees to pollinate and bear fruit and out of blossom to provide the honey. Cyclical self annihilation ? I'm beginning to think Gen.1:28 and 9:7 are more than just a bit of good advice.

Hi Pam, The trouble is there is a tendency for Taroona girls to look for Prince charming overseas, before they know their own country. Yes I have signed it and hope it will continue with some renewed enthusiasm, comments have been very light on. Cheers, Jim.

Awesome view; well captured! Compliments and like from Almelo!

It's a public road, so everyone may enter! :-) Thanks for your comment!

Superb light effects Craig. You could go their dozens of times and and never have that same effect, but you got to make hay while the sun shines, as they say. Greetings from Hobart, Tasmania.


Hi Haijo mooie foto, voor mij een nostalgisch plekje. In de 40ger jaren hier heel wat snoeken uitgehaald. Nu kan ik er alleen maar over dromen, maar leuk om zoiets van ver nog te bewonderen. Hier in Tasmania heb ik het niet minder gedaan en dat was vissen op trout eveneens spannend en in een mooie natuur.

Greetings Hobart, Tasmania.
