•   andthebeast Another cracker! 1y
  •   kup_o @andthebeast Thanks man! No more shots of London yet? I guess the dreary weather doesn't make for great photos. 1y
  •   andthebeast I've actually seen plenty of sweet shit, but I've become so lax with Instagram that I've forgotten to photograph it! I really should get back to it before that gloomy grey come back permanently. Going away anywhere picturesque this summer? 1y
  •   kup_o We're going down to Portland for a days before heading back up to Seattle for PAX. I'm sure I'll be able to shoot a few happy snaps along the way. How about you? Got any plans to check out some more of Europe? 1y
  •   kup_o God dammit, I always forget to tag in comments @andthebeast 1y
  •   andthebeast Nice! I bet there will be heaps of sweet shit at PAX. I haven't made any concrete plans for extra travel yet, but by gum I'll be all over it now that I'm settled! 1y

  •   kup_o @richjaybitch Thanks a lot Rich! Appreciate it. Yeah, I know it's been a while. The weather here in Vancouver during this half of the year is miserable, which doesn't make for great photos. I imagine London's the same. You're still there, right? 2y

  •   vanisle_sailor Gulf islands? 1y
  •   kup_o @vanisle_sailor Actually, it's a chain of islands just off the coast of the Vancouver :) Thanks for the likes! 1y
  •   kup_o @vanisle_sailor Oh, you're from the Island! This was taken just as I was flying into YVR. 1y
  •   vanisle_sailor oh, you're from Oz! :). The islands as a whole are referred to as the Gulf Islands, and the whole area as the Banana Belt of Canada. 1y
  •   vanisle_sailor Banana belt doesn't include Vancouver, sorry, too much rain :). 1y
  •   kup_o @vanisle_sailor Oh, ok. I've wondered what they were called. Such a beautiful part of the world. 1y

kup_o Recently, I've been doing work blasting at quarries. Before we can blow anything up, we need to drill a series of 14m deep holes in the ground to pour the explosives into using this very impressive feat of engineering. They cost around $1 million each with an upkeep of at least $50k a year. Luckily, I'm not paying the bill :) 3y

kup_o Thousands of sun-bleached #sea #shells washed up on the #beach. This, along with coral is how most of the famous white #sand is formed on tropical and sub-tropical beaches. 3y

kup_o These Rainbow Lorikeets (or Lories as they're known locally) are a small species of Parrot common throughout much of Australasia and South-East Asia. They use their unusual brush-tipped tongues to feed mostly on nectar, pollen and small berries. 3y

kup_o The Australian Water Dragon is a fairly common sight along the eastern coast of Australia, although they're usually quite shy. The ones at the wildlife sanctuary were very accustomed to people and this big male let me get very close. They are quite large with males growing up to a meter long. As their name suggests they can usually be found near creeks and ponds. They are very strong swimmers and can stay submerged for up to 90 minutes. 3y

kup_o This is one of the many koalas housed at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Most are brought in by the public after being hit by cars. Although they are quite nimble in the tree tops, they move slowly along the ground and have poor eyesight which unfortunately results in many accidents. Like all marsupials, the females have a pouch for their young, though like it's closest relative, the wombat, the koala's faces backwards. This is to stop the baby koala getting knocked in the head while the mother is climbing. 3y

kup_o Yesterday, my girlfriend and I went to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, a popular tourist attraction on the Gold Coast housing many native Australian animals. Get ready for a few of them ;) Here is a Red Kangaroo with her joey. The Red Kangaroo is the largest marsupial on earth with males reaching up to 2m tall. The joey will stay in the mother's pouch for about 12 months, leaving occasionally for a wander near the mother. 3y

kup_o This is Cape Byron #Lighthouse located on the most easterly point of Australia. Constructed in 1901, it is Australia's most powerful lighthouse. #byronbay #nsw #instagram #iphoneonly #iphone4S #iphoneography #igers #ig #igersaustralia #australia #instahub #photooftheday #picoftheday #iphonephotooftheday #iphonepicoftheday 3y

kup_o A group of friends and I spent the week in Byron Bay in northern New South Wales. It's a great little hippie town popular with backpackers. This a shot of Tallow Beach just on the other side of the bay. #seeaustralia #beach #sea #ocean #sand #water #byronbay #nsw #instagram #iphoneonly #iphone4S #iphoneography #igers #ig #igersaustralia #australia #instahub 3y
  •   kup_o There's a free app called Squaready that makes it white instead of black. Also, I like to put a simple rounded frame on it in Camera+ before I send it to Squaready ;) 3y
  •   darksideofhere I have this exact same picture as my computer desktop. I love Byron Bay, such a tranquil place. 2y
  •   kup_o @darksideofhere Haha, cool! Yeah, definitely an awesome place. Such a great vibe. 2y

kup_o A small #creek running through the sub-tropical #rainforest of the Gold Coast hinterland. This will likely end up in Hinze Dam which supplies water to the Gold Coast. 3y
