The Aussie Summer

A perfect day to grab my camera and try to capture the colours and interesting patterns in the Australian bush here in Sydney. So lucky to be living so close to such beauty.

Wishing everyone a safe and festive holiday break. Hope you get to spend some time with loved ones, and take time out to enjoy the simple pleasures in life.

What Makes You Smile?

These posts so far have always been around my own experiences and photos to match.

But I have to share this link today as it totally made me smile and feel good. Music and dancing is such a wonderful combination. It always lifts my spirit.

This guy’s guitar playing and interaction with people in the street is so heart warming.

I am his newest massive fan. Check out this video and more on UTube

Go Borja Catanesi!

What Makes You Smile?

Exploring my neighbourhood with my camera.

With Covid restrictions this year many Australians have missed their usual overseas trips. We are a travelling nation and frequent flyers. But 2020 and Covid-19 put a stop to that.

The silver lining in these travel restriction has been getting to know our own backyard. I have lived in this area for over 20 years, and today was the first time I actually crossed this walking bridge at Como.

I took my digital camera, first time this year , and took a few snaps. With everything going on around me I had forgotten how much I enjoy just getting out there seeing the world with new eyes. That’s what I love about photography. Seeing the details around us. The things we are too busy to sometimes notice.

Then to finish my photo outing having lunch with a good friend overlooking the water was just the icing on the cake.

Stay safe where ever you are, and don’t forget to keep finding reasons to smile.
