I am showing these and more images

Chatswood, NSW, Australia.
It is a group exhibition by photographers from the Nebuli Arts group.
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.
On my recent photo walk to the Opera House I could not help noticing the many tourists admiring or ignoring the bridge.
These images were taken on a photo walk from Circular Quay to the Sydney Opera House. On the way you can see the Harbour Bridge in the distance. It is a popular walk for tourists. I have also included some images of the Bennelong Restaurant at the city end of the Opera House.
Images from a visit to the Paddington Reservoir in Sydney.
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)
Our new bird feeder created a fair amount of interest. Rainbow lorikeets arrived first.
Next came the cockatoos. Initially there were only 2, later we counted 11 birds.
Our granddaughter is observing carefully while holding the binoculars back to front.
The lorikeets are small in size but know how to scare the much bigger cockatoos.
The kookaburra was stoically observing the acrobatics.
