Oh, yeah, we got that image into the Adelaide Advertiser today, used with some other story they had going. They had a quick two-line copy that was both vague and misleading. Someone once said ‘Any publicity is good publicity‘. Who said that? I took the time to write the the copy it should have got. My copy reads a whole lot better!
“South Australians are experiencing an unusually dry time this year. Thankfully we have artists who have managed to capture the reflected beauty of the remaining ponds in salt pans across our state.
As a memorial to the never-ending heat that has stolen our water, the ‘Adelaide/SA’ group upon http://www.redbubble.com have challenged photographers to submit their best image that depicts locations upon the River Murray.
Want to enter? First prize is a 2-day holiday at the Mannum Motel (100klms west of Adelaide). Competition ends this coming Sunday!

Written in about five minutes. Sure, it’s about two lines longer than they had. If they had made the image half the size, maybe, just maybe, they could have told the complete story.
