Sheep dog show

Apropos of nothing, I decided to check out the sheep dog show Lone Pine has had going for a while and I thought I should share the photos with you as a bit of Australiana that may be of some minor interest to my overseas friends.


(American viewers--and those without a Flickr account--may find these photos are dated 20th November and as such will have more luck finding them here.)

Looks cool. I've only seen a sheep dog competition once, but it was fun to watch those dogs go.

BTW, I think your link is off by a day; found the photos under the 20th.

It is? Bugger! I was hoping Flickr is consistent for everyone, but obviously it must adjust for local time zones. Here it's the 21st but there it's the 20th. If I did these posts late in the evening, there'd be less chance of a conflict but otherwise I don't know if I can force the issue.

Doh! Out-technologied! Darn thinking machines.

(And I don't have a Flickr account, so the site default is probably US' PST or EST.)

I don't think I qualify as an American, but it sent me to the 20th as well.

That would be because you don't have a Flickr account and Flickr would have defaulted you to US PST or EST, am I right? In future, I won't upload these photos until after 6:00pm, and that should keep most of the world happy.

Cool. And thank you for explaining.

That's how I expected Flickr to behave too. I love Flickr because it gives me one source of photographic "truth" rather than having to worry about which odd directory I happen to have dumped my photos in and then it automatically makes an impromptu web gallery for me, but I'm kind of annoyed I can't point to one stable URL to share them.

I tried that, but I wasn't pleased with the result. I would have had to use a unique tag for each post which would have have gotten ungainly. Also, I don't like the way it lays out photos sorted by tag. (I prefer a thumbnail with a caption.) I guess I'm just picky. I'll be alright as long as I only post photos after 6:00pm.
