About two and half years ago my son set up the Hampel Photo Gallery, a place where our family could share photos with the world. Since then we have added over 2000 photos. About half of the photos were taken by me and the balance between my son and my wife.
Recently this gallery passed a significant milestone: one and a quarter million views. That is a lot of people looking at our photos.
There is a wide range of subjects covered including:
- Birds and animals
- Plants and flowers
- National parks, gardens and zoos
- Travel in Australia and other countries
The countries covered include:
- New Zealand
- Malaysia and Singapore
- China and Hong Kong
- North and South America
Why not wander over there and take a look at the Hampel Photo Gallery (click here)?
Strathalbyn is a popular destination with tourists and locals. There are many fine historic buildings to be seen on a gentle stroll around town. Many cafes and specialty shops cater for those who enjoy shopping. Seekers of antiques will find several good outlets catering for their interests.
I have different interests. Yes – I enjoy some of the shops too, especially the interesting second hand bookshop where I try to keep the wallet zipped up in my pocket. I really enjoy having a picnic down by the River Angus. This gently flowing river wends its way through the centre of town. I enjoy having a few relaxing hours in this picturesque park because it enables me to relax while also doing some birding. No exertion needed – the birds come to you.
