Actually when I read the captions properly I now realize some pictures are from the NSW fires also.
Sorry for the misleading heading.

Very disturbing photos John.

Some of the stuff us in the suburbs never see. But I think we do need to, to understand the carnage.

The Victorian Bush is a dangerous and unforgiving place. Let us hope some lessons have been learnt and this loss of life will be limited when it next happens.

Cheers,

Jim.

Very moving photo's, words just can't express how we feel for the people over there. My question is though: who took those photo's????????

Cheers

Yeah, look thanks John, my point was with a fire like that and someone was standing around taking photos, but on reflection I guess it is no differernt than taking photo's on a war front. Fantastic photos none the less.

Cheers

Thanks John. most of these places I grow up in (coming from Broadford) have drank in most of the pubs, and funny enough the last would be Flowerdale in 1988 just before moving to WA.

Was on work time (working for Banbury Engineering) and bumped into the old-man of a girlfriend I had in Wandong I had for 3 and a haft years Jo Hientz, a lot of memories have been ruining through the brain.

I have know a lot of people around these areas all my life, went to school with them, had sex with some of them , drank lots of beers with them, very sad, for me over this side of the land.

I have not seen as as most a list of names, I hold my breath.

to anyone court up in this mess, we all fill some sorrow

deepest regards

Watching one of Ch 9 stories last night the reporter pointed out a Motor Home one family had spent over $50K doing up. Completely gutted!

What really brought home the intensity of this fire was the pools of molten aluminium laying on the ground alongside the bus.
