    What I can imagine from the photo I was doing witch was the CFA and the koala, what I could imagine was all the other animals from the bust fire that would have to be nursed. I feel terrible by most of these animals dying from this bush fire destroying everything in its site, trees, plants, animals wildlife. I wonder how this tragic accerdent happened? Was this the big bush fire that was done by one man? I think it’s devastating for these poor helpless animals in a HUGE bush fire, even if they were on ground, in trees or in the air they would of been in grave danger.

    I think that the picture with all of the water going past that huge building would of took of a lot of confidence to take a picture of that because like what Mr Dennison said, it was took in a chopper (Helicopter)! I also think that he wasn’t going out to think he was getting rescued from the photographer! I think he was just used to how big the waves can get because it has happened lots of times! If the man on the front of the building survived, I would wonder, how would he survived that worse case scenario!? I wouldn’t think I would survive that at all! That would be amazing if I did! I feel sick because every time I look at that water I think if I was in that and imaging me spinning around and twirling around! Blaa! I can image that the water would be higher than the building because when I look at the top of the photo it looks like it goes on and on for ages and ages!

    Man in water with the dog on his back.
    I am in stomach deep water with a dog on my back. I am so tired from pulling this dog through the black water. I am about to collapse. They houses around me are almost under water from the flooding. I want to keep this dog but I am not strong enough to keep him on my back. I thought that dogs can swim if they liked the water. I want to just drop the dog and get out of the water. I can feel all the tree branches in the water brushing up against me. I feel like there are people looking at me like I crazy carrying a dog on my back.
