It’s been just over a week since many parts of Victoria started to burn. It’s been impossible to escape these images and stories and while I am not personally affected I cannot but feel deeply for fellow Australians who have lost family, friends, property, possessions and whole townships. I would like to give credit to the people who captured these images but they are just two of many that are circling the internet. The bottom image shows “Elvis” a water bombing helicopter and according to my colleague it was a welcome sound during the Canberra bushfires of 2003. If you can make a donation to the Australian Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal.
