Thank you for stopping by.

An another winter morning

… that I witnessed as it began the day with this masterpiece, just spread in front of myself at the balcony.

Beautiful yet overwhelming.

I see this type of complex art painted over sky canvas more in winter season rather than summer.

And that morning assured me that this is why I like Sydney in winter season and I do not mind waking up in the darkness (well, mostly for my cats awaiting for breakfast..).

冬の朝、日の出前に起きるとこんな光景に遭遇する。空いう広大なカンバスに描かれた作品。見とれているその横からどんどん絵が変わっていく。

圧倒されるその美しさ。でもこんな贅沢に出会えるからシドニーの冬が好きなんだ。

Snaps at The Grounds of Alexandria

Here are a couple of snapshots I took at The Grounds of Alexandria, one of Sydney’s most famous and successful cafes.

They opened sometime 5 or 6 years ago in the concept of ‘organic fresh from the garden to the table’ ( something like that, I thought…) and became popular quickly.

My lazy character trait and crowd hatred nature, however, took me this long to visit them.  We went there quite early in one beautiful winter morning.  It was still quiet with less people at that time.  Actually, their serving coffee was good and breakfast was delicious.  The former warehouse has good space for them to make the cafe premises the nice farm styled amusement space.  There was no doubt why they are so popular.  The Grounds are great spot for both locals and tourists.  By the time we finished our breakfast, the site was getting much busier with crowd (as expected).  I was lucky to have took some photos before they were filled with people.

Anyway, it was a lovely morning cafe time I had. 🙂

There were a few stalls preparing for ‘farm fresh’ products displayed on.   This stall was for fruits.

The florist.  They were lovely but the cotton was the best as I had posted in here.
