Visual delights


I saw this photo out of the corner of my eye as we were setting up the van.  I couldn't wait to get my camera out.  This lake is pretty isn't it.

Happy New Year everyone.  I hope for each of you it is it a wonderful, happy one filled with visual delights for you to photograph and enjoy.  Thanks so much to for the way you have shared your eye on the world, I look forward to following your stories throughout 2012.   Here is my blog plan for 2012.

  1. So, I gather this is Wallaga Lake. I have a photo of an old red car crossing that picturesque white wooden one-lane bridge. It is a lovely area, but I have not stayed there but in Bermagui itself.

  2. I can understand why your were itching to capture this shot - it has it all - backdrop - height - reflections and that wonderful splash of red on the boat. Delightful!

Reading

The tiny camera's tiny battery ran out so I went back to my reading. The note with the sculpture says "This bronze and copper sculpture contrasts a series of small human forms with the architectural weight of on oversize staircase. The artwork has a philosophical aspect by reflecting on the effect of reading on the spirit - 'the more I read the smaller I feel'." Crikey, I dunno about you but if reading made me feel like that I'd stop.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog -  My Bright Field  - to record the delights of my new life adventure. If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

Coolibah?

Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.
