You finally got here….

You finally got here….

If you have been reading my posts, you will know that I am a little obsessive about padlocks on bridges. This is something that happens quite a lot in European cities and has just started in Sydney on our beloved Harbour Bridge. This has to be one of my most favourite images of the padlocks. … Continue reading

Frangipani

Frangipani

If ever there was a flower that encapsulated Sydney in  summer it’s the frangipani for sure. I love the white and yellow ones the best, but they do come in a pink hue.  Most homes in Sydney will have one of these beautiful plants growing in their front garden. The scent of these flowers is … Continue reading

Summer Sydney Days 2014

Days are long and warm here in Sydney at the moment. I have been lucky enough, where I live to get out and about to take a few photos. Here are some that I really liked.            

Summer Swimming Northside, Sydney

Summer Swimming Northside, Sydney

I have finally discovered, after two years of living on the lower north shore of Sydney, where MacCallum Pool is. If you have the chance this summer, take a walk round Cremorne Point and have a swim here.  The pool is FREE… yes FREE and offers the best views of the Harbour I think. All … Continue reading

After a false start to getting out and about with friends (ended up at the pub instead of festival!) I finally made it out to the Vivid Festival. Armed with my new camera, I got a few photos. This year was bigger than last year. I didn’t make it round to Darling Harbour, but still there was … Continue reading

MONA and Van Diemens Land

MONA and Van Diemens Land

I recently took a trip to Tasmania and was lucky enough to visit MONA – The Museum of Old and New Art. This museum is the work of Tasmanian millionaire David Walsh, an elusive man with a hunger for collecting art.  The collection is provocative, exciting, scary, beautiful… left me rather speechless sometimes. But most importantly, … Continue reading

Passionless Padlocks Articles

Passionless Padlocks Articles

I just came across this article in Sydney’s local rag “Daily Telegraph” which Wollongong Council has been removing the padlocks from a bridge in Mt Keira. It was one of my first posts that I wrote about the emergence of padlocks on the Sydney Harbour Bridge. If you want to rad the full article it … Continue reading

Newtown Street Art Finds

Here are some pics of street art in Newtown in Sydney. There is a plethora of street art in Newtown and I am going to make it a mission to get out and document as many as I possibly can. This mural was on Station Street, just off Enmore Road. Hope you enjoy these pics.

Beautiful Versailles…..

Beautiful Versailles…..

I was lucky enough to travel to France a year ago to catch up with an old flat mate of mine, Pierre. I had been  to Paris a few times but never seemed to make it to Versailles. I thought I wold share some of my favourite photos on my blog, and hopefully this might … Continue reading
