These were photographed a few days before I flew to Japan to close my 2018.
I procrastinate taking additional half hour for photography after work, but that day was only exception. I would have not tried any big shot but simply hoped to catch a summer afternoon in Sydney.
Then why didn’t I choose somewhere near or under Harbour Bridge? I don’t know. My house is not in the direction where Anzac Bridge leads to, but Anzac Bridge adores me for its architecture and keeps me coming back to, and that day seemed be one of that.
Being so, I did not take a walk the path alongside Blackwattle Bay and I found number of small challenges in taking snapshots.
I hope 2019 came with bringing smiles and peace to you.
I took a flight to Japan on 30th of Dec at night, to spend new years eve and day with family there. My first week of 2019 was past as fast as giving one blink.
It was certainly short holiday, and despite the fact that it was really cold there (yes it was to me!) that it was in the range of -1 to 10 deg C, I was clear, energetic and had a great time. I forgot to take photos in many occasions during the stay, but here are some I caught.
I am glad to be back in here, and I will look forward having more sharing and exchanging photos and journals with you ahead!
I have drawn Jacarandas with pastels for my friend’s birthday.
It should be looking like a bit plain work for the occasion.
It will be the last birthday for her to celebrate it in Sydney, under full bloom of Jacarandas, so I hope she will like this. She will be a resident of Northern Hemisphere next year, where there will be framed in coloured leaves when she gets her birthday 😉
I snapped the head part of Hornby’s Lighthouse at South Head, Sydney, when I took a walk around Watson’s Bay and Camp Cove with the guest I had from Chicago. I did not bring my DSLR but my old iPhone6 still did a fair work.
It was nice, clear day. I think the photo caught well about how sparkle the lighthouse body was in white and red stripe with in bright blue background.
