With a sad heart, I have to advise that Ausphotography member SpaceJunk passed away recently.
Back when Ausphotography was in it's infancy(2006-2009), Russ was one of the site moderator team and he loved getting involved not only in the site management side of Ausphotography, but also loved his photography. He had not been that active on the site in recent years, mainly due to health issues.
His funeral was held this last Tuesday and he was remembered by his family, friends and colleagues for his "his good nature, quirky sense of humor and “fatherly” influence".
Whilst most of his posts on Ausphotography were archived and removed some years ago, his photography is still available to view on his deviantart page: http://spacejunk2.deviantart.com/gallery/
