    How I spent my vacation (or holiday)

    If I were to post a picture of how I spent my vacation, it would only show a picture of my poor computer, but I would love to see how other members spent theirs! If you have recently returned from a holiday and have photos to share, please take advantage of this thread.

    But, we need to have a few simple rules:

    1. For any photo you post in this thread, make sure you add a description of the photo. Tell us about the photo and (if you like) give us some info about your camera and photo-taking technique.

    2. If you have a gallery of vacation photos (e.g. at Facebook or on a site like Flicker), add a link to it rather than post them all here.

    I am so much busy in my business that I have no spare time for vacations and I am so much sad at this. First you suggest me how to skip these business activities and find a way to some good place for vacations.

    OK, this may not count (as is was a few months back) but it's not holiday season where I live! My family spent some time in Lorne, a town along the beautiful Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. We met these gorgeous kookaburras, who were so tame that they were happy for us to pat them. If you are not familiar with these birds, they are are renowned for their raucous laughing.

    I have always wondered what they looked like. When I was a little girl in brownie scouts we learned the kookaburra song.

    Heh heh, I'm surprised you learned that in the U.S!

    Off Topic:

    Mind you, by quoting the words here you've potentially just brought a huge lawsuit against yourself. One our most famous rock bands (Men at Work) got sued last year for allegedly using a short, ten-note riff from that tune in their most famous track.

    Oh WOW! I edited the post. Silly me. I learned it so long ago that I didn't think it could still be copyright, but it apparently is.

    Sorry, I was just being cheeky. I didn't mean to scare you, but you never know, I guess! The company that now owns the song seems pretty ... well, I'd better stop.

    I read an article about that company after I saw your post and I get your drift. They do seem pretty... well, not so pretty.

    I too learned that song when I was younger and did not think they would take their copyright issues to such an extreme.. interesting to learn but always a good thing to know haha

    These pictures are from a holiday we enjoyed about four years ago. See if you can guess the rough location - the landscape is very Star Trek, but as you can see, the natives speak English.

    Dear Shyflower.Itís a great idea to create this topic for discussion. It is always interesting to see how others travel to different countries, how they spend their free time. When I was scrolling down this page, I saw more and more beautiful pictures, its picturesque sceneries, blue ocean and happy faces. Itís great. Iím sure we need to travel at least once a year. We should not think just only about our jobs. Sometimes it is useful to relax and get more positive energy!

    I always photograph badly, thus i took little pictures of myself. If i had a few days off, i really want to have a very good sleep. I just visited one of the largest private garden in the world, it is also the world cultural heritage and AAAAA scenic spot. My computer can't connect the USB because of the company's confidential policy. It is a pity that i can't share the pictures with you.
    And i hope one day i could travel to Europe. it is a really nice place.

    Notice: If you have vacation pictures to post, post them here. If you want to comment on posted photos, your comments are welcome, but if you just want to talk about your vacation (no pictures) please do so in General discussions. This is the photography forum.
