The Rocks is an urban locality, tourist precinct and historic area of Sydney’s city centre. It is immediately adjacent to Circular Quay on Sydney Cove, the site of Australia’s first European settlement in 1788. On this side of Sydney Cove you find the Sydney Harbour Bridge while the Opera House is on the opposite side of the cove.
Anzac Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It is the day on which we remember all Australians who served and died in war and on operational service. The spirit of Anzac, with its qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity (Australian War Memorial)
Last weekend the east coast of Australia experienced heavy rain and wild storms which eroded beaches by up to 50 meters. Today, Wednesday I visited Collaroy and Dee Why on Sydney’s northern beaches. While the sun has returned the sand has not.
This weekend we spent a bit of time at a folk festival. Great music, great weather, all together a very pleasant day. This is how I remember it.
It was a last minute, well last week, decision. Today, 5th April, I am hanging my images for a solo exhibition at the GkJE Gallery 2 at the cafe Not Just Coffee in Paddington, Sydney. You can view the images while you are enjoying your coffee from 6th – 30th April (Mon – Fri, 7:30am – 4pm, Sat & Sun, 8:30am – 3:30pm). I will have an official opening on Sat, 9th April, 2:30 – 3:30pm.
I am thinking of creating a series of blogs featuring things you can see when looking down. This is my first attempt.
