Cinque Terra ......

~  Vernazza  ~

Steps steps and more steps !!
in the delightful area of Cinque-Terra of northern Italy.
Five little villages which connect by walking tracks
threading their way along steep cliff faces
with the most amazing views and such a delight
to arrive in this pretty village of Vernazza

in case you're wondering - this pic is of beach-clothes
hung out to dry from window to window
a very familiar sight which added colour to our trek

Arrivederci Roma .......

Rome is such a warm busy metropolis  - with it's wonderful wealth of history, architecture
and a multitude of spaghetti coloured buildings

If you keep your eyes peeled - you can find the sweetest little treasures
like this aged bell tarnished by time and the elements
but all the more lovelier for it.

into a pallet of buttery-yellow and rose-pink walls

Beauty of Simplicity ......

"Simplicity is beautiful
it makes a picture readable"

I hope that you  can see through the simplicity of this pic
to the peace and calmness of a beautiful Australian morning

This is my contribution to

sunshine after rain .....

Belair National Park   ~

Australian National Parks are a great place to visit
after rain with wildlife abounding

This cuddly koala was very wet from a recent down-pour
and we found him hanging out to dry on one of the lower
eucalyptus tree trunks

A little miss making friends of the 
feathered variety

cute gaggle of geese - ducks and even a little water-hen in the medley

North Haven .....

~ North Haven Marina  ~

trying out my new circular polarizing filter on a rather bright sunny morning
 it is supposed to cut out glare and act like sunglasses
for the camera lens

beachcombing .............

~   Grange Beach   ~

It is said that every photo must have a subject
but sometimes just the colours of a day  - are enough

"write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year"

A Touch of Green ........

~   Rymill Park Lake  ~ 

This park-land area on the eastern edge of our CBD
is always well tendered and maintained

While I bided  time sipping coffee and reading the daily paper
at the lake-side café -workmen were planting out surrounding beds
with pretty snap-dragons
