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.
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.
This week we left early to look at the Sculptures by the Sea on the coastal walk between Bondi and Tamarama. It was a beautiful peaceful morning though the sea was still very powerful. The day before waves had damaged some of the sculptures on Tamarama beach.
The waves were a sight you just had to record.
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.
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.
Looking down while walking on the beach. Here are things I noticed.
