Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a restful and enjoyable weekend. Today, it's been raining cats and dogs here in Sydney like you wouldn't believe! On my way to work, there was a fully formed thunderstorm doing its thing as I waited for the bus. Intermittently, it continued to rain heavily all day and then in the afternoon another thunderstorm!
However, that was today. On the weekend, fortunately, it was lovely! I went on some epic walks and took lots of photos a few of which I will present to you here starting with the image on the right. In the doorway of an old turn of the last century terrace which has been converted into a swish shop: A man with a moustache...and eyebrows too. Do you think this is cheeky Art Nouveau stained glass making or do you think it's a coincidence? Hmmmm...
Three very desirable (for me anyway) residences along the road that runs up beside Centennial Park. According to a very reliable source (*ahem* my boyfriend) it was in this grand street that George Lucas chose to stay whilst in Sydney filming the prequels to Star Wars (at Fox studios).
Centennial Park starring: The Moon. My boyfriend took this lovely shot.
Are you talking to me? I have had rainbow lorikeets on this blog before - they are so frisky and wonderful it is hard to resist photographing them.
...and the camellia season here in Sydney is in full swing! They are absolutely everywhere! However, they are spectacularly hard to photograph. Why is that? These three shots are the best I can show you at this stage. I will endeavour to get some more decent shots of them this season.
I hope everyone has a terrific week ahead!
