No polls are currently active, you can see the results from previous polls here.

Fancy yourself as a photographer? AusPharm regularly publishes photographs submitted by our members and would love to have a look at what you have to offer. Ideally, photos should have a pharmacy aspect to them but this is not mandatory. To submit a photo for consideration please email Mark Dunn.

This horse doesn't mind the water :: Mark Dunn : 14/03/2008 :

AusPharm's Mark Dunn moonlights as a photographer (and webmaster) for his daughter's Pony Club.

The State Pony Club Trials were held in Tassie over the March long weekend and Mark was there with his camera.

While the water jump defeated many of the competitors, particularly those in Grade 3, this rider made it through unscathed.

Rovinj :: Leone Coper : 29/02/2008 :

Unlike most of the charming "old town" here in Rovinj where I have my Croatian base, the local pharmacy is not very picturesque.

I send instead one of my favourite photos of local medicine consumers (a reasonable assumption I would imagine!)

Bromeliad :: Peter Ryan : 15/02/2008 :

I haven’t sent a photo for a while, as I try to send you images of a “pharmacy” nature. While this one isn’t really “pharmacy”, but it is “nature”.

It reminded me of those chemical structure models we used at school (or was it uni?) to make 3D models of compounds.

The image is of a bromeliad flower, taken in my front garden.

Antarctic summer :: Paul Watkins : 01/02/2008 :

This photo was taken at 10.30PM (24 hour sunlight in Antarctica over summer season) at Vinson Base Camp during a climbing expedition in Antarctica. Our team can be seen lower left preparing campsite for the night.

Our team of five went on to summit the Vinson Massif, the highest point in Antarctica at just under 5000m.

SA PSA State Council 1919 :: Peter Bayly : 18/01/2008 :

This week seems to have assumed a historical bent so this submission from Peter Bayly is an abvious choice for this week's Photo of the week - MD. Peter writes......

I cannot pretend to have taken this myself as I was not around in 1919 in the Board Room of the Pharmaceutical Society of South Australia at 74 Pirie Street Adelaide when it was established and furnished by the Pharmaceutical Council. However, of particular interest is the third person from the left – E F Lipsham, whom some Crow-eaters will remember as the senior lecturer and head of the School of Pharmacy who pounded the middle of their back with a pestle to hammer home a point of dispensing practice.

This document was hidden within the Board Room copy of the inaugural Act of 1891 to establish a Board of Pharmacy in the province of South Australia. The province is also referred to as a colony later in the document. Assent was given on 14th October and regulations followed on July 21st 1892. Members of the Pharmaceutical Society of SA were automatically registered on application.

There was also a hand-written memorandum of apprenticeship dated 22nd August 1866 that reflects on the job training as the only form of education until the Board instituted a preliminary examination in Latin, English and Arithmetic and later a practical pharmacy examination.

Green iguana :: Howard Teague : 14/12/2007 :

With the busy Xmas holiday season coming up soon, we recently took a few weeks break to collect my daughter from ANU in Canberra, and came home via the NSW South Coast, where we called in at the excellent Mogo Zoo near Moruya , where I took the photo of the iguana.

It was taken through glass, and from around 6 metres away (new camera.. no talent involved).

Wheat crop :: Bill Arnold : 30/11/2007 :

Some of this year's (failed) wheat crop between Echuca and Barmah last month.

An example of how the extending drought is destroying farms and communities around the nation. City dwellers will begin to realise the reality of the situation as food price rises inevitably follow crop failures.

Floriade :: Rob Maron : 16/11/2007 :

Here is a photo I took at Floriade this year.

It was a stunning display of flowers even though we have had virtually no rain and my garden is turning to dust!

They used water from Lake Burley Griffin to water this year's Floriade and I don't have access to that

F111 dump and burn :: Jason Keily : 26/10/2007 :

This photo was taken last Sunday at the Lexmark Gold Coast Indy, just prior to the main race. The photo was taken from a balcony on the 15th floor of Kingsrow Central, which is directly opposite the V8 pits.

The shot is of an F111 performing a dump and burn procedure. From where I was standing you could feel the heat from the flames. The shot was taken with a Nikkon D70 fitted with a 70-300 lens.

Balloon at Lake Burley Griffin :: Graeme Watson : 19/10/2007 :

I thought I would send along one of my photos, which has nothing at all to do with pharmacy. It was taken at Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra earlier this year and has been doing reasonably well in both national and international photographic exhibitions.

For those interested, the balloon was photographed at Lake Burley Griffin on a Pentax *ist DS using a Pentax 16->45 zoom lens and recorded as a RAW file, and the sunrise was shot at Shoalhaven Heads on the NSW south coast using the same camera and lens.
