QLD Flood Appeal Auction - Item #1

Welcome to designed to a T and in conjuction with the wonderful Toni at 'Make it Perfect', my blog and many many others are participating in a series of blog auctions and raffles to support the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal.

You'll find the master list of participating blogs here.
I have a big connection with QLD, as my regular readers would know, having grown up in Bundaberg and my 2 sons still living in the 'sunshine state'. My eldest son Brendon, lives at Bulimba, an area that had some flooding. I felt compelled to do something to help, as I couldn't be in QLD to help my son, who luckily was only affected in a minor way compared to others.
Auction Item #1 - Framed photographic print by Brendon Grove
My first Auction item is one of Brendon's photographic prints. This was taken in Amsterdam on his first overseas trip back in 2003. I spoke to Brendon about putting it up as my first Auction item and he was happy to have a piece of his art used for such a worthy cause. He's seen how so many people have lost much much more than he did over the past week.
