PhotoGRAPHy 101: Week 4

Treasure

The Botanic Gardens in Sydney are lovely with lots of native flora – but these delightful Gazanias are from Southern Africa. They are also known as the Treasure flower so I figured they were appropriate for the challenge.

Glass

glassThis week I have had a delightful trip south to meet up with Meg from the blogosphere who very kindly took me all around the Eurobodalla region. This interesting mirror was in a perfectly preserved heritage village called Tilba in the south of New South Wales.

EDGE

Interesting edges in this art installation at the National Gallery in Canberra. The installation is called “Skyspace” and is by  American artist James Turrell.

Double

Two Wallabies at Potato Point, south NSW. I would have liked to have got one with a baby in its pouch, but sadly not.

Triumph

My triumph was actually making it to Potato Point this week to meet up with a fellow blogger who I became friends with over the year.  A walk on the beach revealed these beautiful shells.

Finished up in Canberra where my eldest Granddaughter lives and it has been wonderful to spend time with her (and her boyfriend). Lovely to see her in her own environment.

It has been an exciting week and so lovely to be shown places that I don’t know about by a botanical expert and a friend. Once virtual now for real. Thanks Meg for a great week and for putting up with me 🙂

Heyjude

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Although I quite like Sydney as far as metropolises (sp?) go, to me the uniqueness of Australia is away from the state capitals. That’s where I find the true Australian flora and fauna and people.
