    Default Riley Baker

    Riley was a very active supporter of this group and I have just sadly learned he is in hospital, critical after being hit on his motorbike by a car crossing the centre line as he was returning from Oamaru to Dunedin.

    I will keep the group informed of his status

    Give an Artist a box of different sized colour blocks and he will create an art work; give me the same box and I will sort it by colour and then size :)

    Sad news indeed. RIP Riley. Also always enjoyed his images taken with lot of effort from out of the way places or up hills.

    Yes, this is very sad, I am listening to his girlfriend speaking to John Cambell on the radio at the moment. He was a good forum friend!

    Been busy and just reviewing all the great images, many of which were Riley's. Seems incredible he won't be posting again. So very sad for all his family and friends.

    I have just popped in here after a very long time and am so sorry to read this news. I was aware of the accident but did not know who he was.
    So sad, what a waste
