So where have I just been? Yup, you guessed it. No matter how many times you've seen it before, it's still pretty tempting to take a snap of the Opera House.
[Meriton Apartments, Suite 4502]
Here's where we stayed.
& here's the view. Pretty cool, eh?
[Lisa Samuels, Ricci Van Elburg & Jen Crawford]
Don't they look glamorous?
[John Newton, Jeffrey Paparoa Holman, Michele Leggott]
Not that these three don't look pretty glam as well ...

Setting up on the first full day of readings (September 1st)
[Home & Away 2010: A Trans Tasman Poetry Symposium]
Michele gets things underway.
Always important for me: some brilliant deals and swaps were done this time (as on previous occasions).
[Michele & Dave]
[& a great big hug]
The presiding spirit of the occasion.
[Janet Charman, Vivienne Plumb, Selina Tusitala Marsh & David Howard]
The main business of the symposium consisted of four panels. Each time, four poets read and discussed some examples of their latest work (all of which had been made available in advance on the digital bridge). This is the final panel on day 2.
[Mark Fryer, Michele Leggott, Janet Charman & Michael Farrell]
After all that hard work, what better way to relax than with a ferry ride? Here we are on our way to Cockatoo Island on the last day of the proceedings.
[Mark Young & Martin Edmond]
[Sydney Harbour Bridge]
A shot to match the ones I took of Auckland Harbour Bridge earlier this year.

[Prison Cells on Cockatoo Island]
They sure made us feel welcome. But then it was time to say goodbye.
[Mark Fryer, Michele Leggott, Helen Sword, Lisa Samuels, Jen Crawford]
Zero's glad to have me back. I enjoyed myself a lot, but I'm happy to be home.
