Street 1 of 7




Well the city is of course all about movement and the street.  So here's a week of what I saw.

  1. Beautiful trees - they provide a perfect backdrop to that scene.
    A lovely photo, lots of movement. I like it in black and white :D)

  3. It was the trees that surprised me in this photo. I don't usually think of trees when I picture Martin Place in my mind's eye.

    And of course, businessmen striding about is pretty much how it is in city.

  4. I love street photography but it isn't easy or should I say comfortable

    1. I just snap away regardless in the big city. I find it less comfortable in the mountains.

  5. They are getting bigger, those saplings. That would be the Reserve Bank, I guess.

    1. Yes Reserve Bank. I hadn't noticed the trees until I took this shot.

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.
