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.

Comet McNaught at twilight over Lake Bullen Merri :: Irwin the evil chemist : 19/01/2007 :

In today's Photo of the week Irwin the evil chemist show that he's more than just a pretty face.

These two photos were taken in country Victoria on Wednesday evening. The full versions (click below) are worth a look. Nice one Irwin.

Chickenfeed? :: Luke Bereznicki : 07/12/2006 :

My wife and I noticed this a while ago while driving home from Brisbane. Think about what the front window of this 'chemist' is promoting - certainly not health... To me it is little different to the in-store promotions of a Chickenfeed store. Post a comment to AusPharmList.

Windmills :: Brad Smithson : 29/09/2006 :

While this photo isn't pharmacy related at all it does showcase well our lovely part of the world in the great south of WA.

Murchison Variety 4WD Bash :: Jo Sorensen : 22/09/2006 :

I thought I'd send you a photo of our latest endeavour. Recently, four of us from work completed the Murchison Variety 4WD Bash. We 'contacted' my husband’s car blue (which was a godsend in the end in view of the heavy scrub we had to drive through) and called ourselves the V Team (note the 'blue pill' on top!). Our motto for the weekend was Rising to the Challenge! The contingent of 26 cars raised $100,000 for the local chapter of Variety in aid of a number of local disabled/ disadvantaged children’s organisations.

Farmacia Italiano :: Deborah Harding : 18/08/2006 :

During the early 1980's I worked as a pharmacist in the U.K. with frequent trips to Europe. I fell in love with the Italian lifestyle and chose to live in Rome in order to attend language school and learn Italian. My husband and I were lucky enough to return during May. We visited a few Pharmacies, where all pharmacists wear white coats and keep most of their medicines in closed drawers. Pharmacies are identified by a white banner with a green cross which hangs outside the shop.

One of the coastal towns is Vernazza and we took this photo there. Shows the far more relaxed lifestyle of the Italians! Note the washing line above the doorway. We were taking coffee one morning in the neighbouring town of Riomaggiore and the local pharmacist popped in to take his coffee at the bar, obviously no threat of a visit from the Board inspectors in his absence! We can thoroughly recommend this beautiful region.

Turkish pharmacy :: Mark Naunton : 28/07/2006 :

I was recently in Turkey and checked out their pharmacies. They have pharmacists but they seem to sit out the back and let the (male) assistant do the work. These guys are keen to wave Viagra, Cialis etc. to passing males. I think it is possible to negotiate prices with some of these guys. I have no idea if these pharmacies are representative for Turkey, but I suspect it is.

No prescription required for drugs and the costs for some are:

Viagra (100mg) 4 tabs = 20 euro ($AU35)
Cialis (20mg) 2 tabs = 15 euro
Lipitor 10mg (out of date) = 2 euro
Zocor 20mg = 6 euro
Enalapril 10mg (i think) = 1 euro
Orlistat (84 caps) = 50 euro

(NB: only asked about the costs of drugs in one pharmacy)

Retail lockup :: David Haworth : 19/07/2006 :

Unfortunately the Coober Pedy Pharmacy was closed when I arrived, after a 900Klm drive from Broken Hill, on my way to a month of working in Alice Springs. It was dusk and I was looking for my underground motel (they are all under ground even the Caravan park) when I spotted the Pharmacy. I’m guessing they have no trouble with break-ins!

Thank goodness for Coober Pedy Because Alice Springs is 1500 Km from Adelaide and about 1766Km from Broken Hill. We weary travellers need a rest stop. If it was not for the Opal fields I think some one would have had to invent the town anyway.

Lake Nash :: Michael Delaney : 10/07/2006 :

This photo was taken by a remote area nurse at Lake Nash airstrip in the Northern Territory. Standing on the left is pharmacist and pilot Peter Hatswell, next to him is the Royal Darwin Hospital's pre-registrant pharmacist Eddie Gacitua and myself.

Lake Nash is a small aboriginal community located approximately 700kms north east of Alice Springs. The local health centre is one of 30 that are supplied with medications on a regular basis from Alice Springs Amcal Pharmacy. Twice a year the centre also receives a visit by a pharmacist (in this case 3) to discuss any issues pertaining to the supply, storage and quality use of such medications. The pharmacist also conducts a small education session and reviews any medication charts that require a pharmacists expertise. I was fortunate enough to be invited along on this trip.

Vietnamese pharmacy :: Cathy Ries : 30/06/2006 :

Cathy Ries graduated in South Africa, re-qualified in Canada, re-re-qualified in Australia and says she is currently loving life in sunny Queensland!

"Whilst visiting Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam recently I discovered that distinguishing a Pharmacy from other stores was no easy task. Antibiotics (Augmentin, Cephalexin, Roxithromycin) are available as OTC's. A fascinating country!"
