vertical gardens


When we were last in Sydney, the Central Park urban village was under construction.  This building features vertical gardens on it's exterior and is part of the Central Park living mall. I like the idea of urban living that embraces nature.

golden water mouth

 
 
at the eastern end of Chinatown in Sydney stands a dead tree sculpture called 'Golden Water Mouth.' It's said to bring good luck to the chinese community. We passed it on our way to Market City.

double decker


After several personally difficult weeks, it felt good to get away to Sydney for a few days to take a breather. Miss 7 and I kept ourselves busy with sightseeing and shopping. The best part of our trip was the double decker tours around Sydney and Bondi which we did over 2 consecutive days. There's nothing quite riding on the top deck, facing into the wind, to make a person feel truly alive.

after camp


Mr15 arriving home after being away at a weekend cadet camp. His unit had arrived back earlier than expected so he walked home lugging his heavy kit. I was out in the garden trying to take photos of flowers when he came trudging up our driveway.

road fish


our street has been tagged by an anonymous person who loves to draw fish. The latest fish (pictured) is drawn on the road. Wonder how long it will be before the artist realizes that fish need water???
