Ilford, Capertee and surrounds.

Hello again 😊 Sorry for the long absence, but here I am again!

We went for a drive inland and north where the countryside is rugged but beautiful. It was a sunny day yet fairly chilly, a little overcast at times and pretty windy. I managed to get some nice images; here they are.

Vivid Sydney!

We accompanied some friends into the city last Sunday for the Vivid Festival. Doing the ‘penguin shuffle’ for the majority of the evening wasn’t much fun, but hopefully the results will please your eye! 😉 We also enjoyed a few drinks at the Opera Bar prior to the sun going down, and that was rather lovely 🙂

Governor Phillip Park ~ Windsor

Hello! I’m sorry I have been away for a few weeks, but I have been busy with my job transition doing many hours and have not had time nor the energy for photoshoots 😦 But here I am again! Last Saturday we went out and about and found a park alongside the Hawkesbury River in Windsor. I couldn’t choose my favourite 10, so this set has 13 🙂

World Capital Cities

Wet wet wet!!! And work… 😦 That is what stopped us from going on a photoshoot last week. So I dived into the archives and came up with some ‘wordly’ images! 😉

Iron Bark Lake

We found another lake in our area! This one is at The Ponds; a suburb quite close to us. We did some book shopping at the nearby Rouse Hill yesterday, before going in search of a worthy photoshoot area. Iron Bark Lake was that 🙂

Doonside Park

Last week we spent the afternoon with my nephew Nick.  We took him to The Creative Spirit Centre where we all bought some lovely crystals. Then on the way to dinner at our favourite café at Nadia’s at Westpoint, we went in search of a place for a photoshoot and stumbled across this park quite by accident; we took a wrong turn 😉 Nick enjoys photography too and I gave him my camera while I used my phone’s camera. Here are our results; I chose a few of Nick’s to put on here this week 🙂
