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.
We were so overwhelmed with the beauty of the grounds of this hospital that we took a great deal of photos, enough to use for two weeks…and more even. So here are some more colourful images of the Cumberland Hospital Garden.
This is the last blog update for a while, as Ray and are I off on a seven and a half week holiday! 🙂 The next blog will be on the 19th of November. I have created a third blog, on will I will randomly post photos of our travels: http://elleverwoerdphotografie.wordpress.com
We spent a lovely afternoon on the magnificent grounds of Cumberland Hospital, which runs along part of Parramatta Park; where we are frequent visitors of late. The hospital opens it’s grounds to visitors for the full month of September when all the lovely flora is in full bloom. On weekends there are stalls, scones and tea is served and it’s a fun day out for all; during the week…all is quiet but the gates are open to the public, so we took advantage of that on Friday afternoon.
Now silly me, I forgot my camera…I know, I know; who goes on a photoshoot without their camera, right? Lucky I had my super-duper new Galaxy Note; it took amazing photographs! Here you are:
We took a drive to Parramatta Park last week; a place that is always beautiful to me. We came across a huge colony of grey-headed flying foxes; apparently they have started coming there for a few years; setting up camp between September and April; the mating season. It was an interesting sight, all those flying foxes hanging from the trees; there must have been at least 500 of them!
I have taken away the voting poll, since not many people were voting at all and it didn’t seem worthwhile. But feel free to comment and let me know if you have a favourite, if you still wish to do so.
All of last week was rather windy in our parts; not so good for nature shots… So off we went to the roof of Westfield shopping centre in Parramatta, opting for some abstract shots; I hope you enjoy what I came up with 🙂
After our trip to Megalong Valley last week, we headed home via Evan’s Lookout where we were welcomed with more stunning views of mountain ranges. We stopped at the main lookout and walked to another smaller one where, after a time, the sun began to set…delightful to see. I always love a good sunset 😉
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.
