Roxborough Rose Garden ~ Part 1

A few years ago we discovered this beautiful park with the most stunning and colourful roses. Just before Christmas last year we took a stroll through the park again…this time with a budding young photographer, my nephew Nick. It was fun to watch him really get into it and he took some amazing shots. 

Here are mine…

Here we are again, at Parramatta Park. Forgive me for being a tad late with the blog but I have been suffering from a severe headache all weekend. Still not the best but we must get on with things, right? 😉 I hope you enjoy this set of photos 🙂

A Return to Nurragingy Reserve.

Last year in early December we popped on over to a nearby reserve for a picnic lunch and a bit of a photoshoot. Just after lunch, it came bucketing down which made our shoot much more interesting. Here are my first ten images; the next ten will be up in a fortnight; after part 2 of Parramatta Park 😉
