I know where your coming from, but where i live in the northwest, it's a bit like living down south in WA. Hobart way is like Seattle in the usa, but it's nice here with mild winters and about mid to late 20's in the summer. We have the scenery and wildlife here, i'd get sick of taking photo's of church's all the time ..... lol My little dig.
Welcome to Pentax Forums mate, looks like the place to be ..... cheers

Thanks AdrianM for the welcome message
I love the little dig!

Just to explain to non Australian readers, Adelaide is known as the City of Churches. So what TazDownunder is saying is that there are so many damned churches that you can't take a picture of anything else. (A bit like being in a forest and not being able to see the trees :-))

I've lived in Adelaide for 47 of my nearly 50 years, and churches have never factored. I think that reputation was earned early in the last century, and has long since become inaccurate and irrelevant.

Wineries, on the other hand....

I know this is off topic for a Pentax photography blog but I have been a member of a little wine tasting club called the Adelaide Wine Appreciation Club for over 20 years and I feel like I am living in the best place in the world!

If you've still got feeling have you really appreciated enough wine?
