Hello and welcome to my photo blog. I have always had an interest in photography, but have never really taken it anywhere, until recently. It is purely a hobby and something I would like to share, and thanks to technology I have found a great way to do this. I hope you enjoy viewing them, as much as I have enjoyed taking them. Please feel free to share these photos, all I ask is that you credit the photographer and/or include a link to this blog.
This week we ventured out to Parramatta to take a tour through the lovely old homestead and beautifully lush garden of Elizabeth Farm.
Elizabeth Farm is one of Australia’s oldest surviving homesteads where you can wander freely through the old house and garden as if you were its original occupants. There are no barriers, locked doors, fragile furniture or untouchable ornaments in this unique, ‘access all areas’ house museum.
Built in 1793 for John Macarthur, known as the father of the wool industry, and his wife Elizabeth, tales of migration and new starts, passion and anguish, early colonial political skulduggery and the genesis of Australia’s wool trade are cemented into these walls.
This week we were on our way to a reserve. The weather wasn’t too good however and since the area was rather enclosed, photos would not have turned out too well. We came across this rose garden quite by accident and the beauty we saw, you can now see…enjoy!
Hello and welcome to my weekly blog. I have been blogging my weekly trips in photo format on blogspot.com (http://ellesphotographicadventures.blogspot.com/) for a bit over a year now and have decided to bring it to wordpress.com, so here I am. Every week, my partner and I go out and about somewhere, given the weather is agreeable and take photos of the area and surroundings we visit. Please visit my partner, Ray’s site http://www.rayscam.com/ for some stunning photography.
This week we took a lovely drive to Burragorang Valley, which is a locality in the Macarthur region, south west in NSW. It was recommended by a colleague of mine and I am very glad we went. The drive itself was just beautiful and the place was picture perfect and peaceful… The following photos are a combination of the recreation area and the drive back home, enjoy…
The idea with this blog is to bring you an image a day for the whole of 2013. Each image will be made on the day. I hope that you will enjoy the journey with me, and feel free to comment on or share images; they are meant to entertain and please, after all.
