I read an article this week about the camel problem in the Australian Outback. I researched this issue a bit when I was in Australia in 2001 working on photo and writing projects, and now it appears the situation is becoming troublesome (from an environmental and Aboriginal-culture perspective).
Though camels are indigenous only to Asia and Africa, herds totaling over a million roam the Outback. The entire population has grown from animals abandoned by rail workers about a century ago after the trans-Australian railroad was built. I wrote a bit about this in my photo essay "Driving Australia's Nullarbor Plain."
What the article doesn't mention is that I was fortunate enough to be able to recover my best photos from the tournament. How? Because the then-art director of USTA Magazine had saved the discs I'd given her. (Ironically enough, that same AD, Kirsten Navin, designed the cover of my upcoming book, Photographing Tennis.)
An article I wrote has been published on the website ObituariesHelp.org. In addition to the obvious, the website also helps visitors create family trees, specifically ones of a more artistic level than traditionally seen.
