The Challenge

Last Friday we went on a wee picnic by the lake. Ray takes his camera everywhere (I used to) and he spotted something and took a photo. He then took another, not leaving the picnic blanket…so I put this to him: “Do you think you can you get enough photos from where you are sitting for the Cam next week?” He replied “I think so…” And so he did. Whether I could do it with my phone was another story; it takes decent photos, but I wasn’t sure if I could manage it…having said that, I took on my challenge too, and here are the results 😉

Werrington Lakes

After a physiotherapy appointment at St Clair, in Sydney’s west, we headed to a nearby area which looked quite promising on the map. Water is always something we like, so off we went to explore! The following photos are what I came up with 😉

Castle Hill Heritage Park

This week we re-visit a little hidden gem we discovered (quite by accident) a year or so ago. It was late afternoon, early evening when we arrived and the lighting was quite lovely… Judge for yourself 😉

Driftway Lake

This week we take a wee drive a mere 15 minutes from home to a man made lake in the suburb of Pumelwuy. I had a grey moment and left my SD card at home in the PC, so I had to resort to my mobile phone camera. This is what I came up with; I hope they are pleasing to your eye…
