WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE : NEAR AND FAR

PLACEHOLDER FOR NEAR AND FAR.

034

Morning, All. Lovely Spring Day in Australia. I am using this one as a placeholder while I go and have my brekkie in the sun. One cup of white tea and a bagel coming up. I took this shot last year in Sydney in Springtime. I will be back later with my usual barrage of images. I’ve chosen this because of the Nearness of the Bank and the ATMs and the Farness of the old buildings in reflection. It was the week before OCCUPY SYDNEY. None of us saw it coming.  In the windows is the reflection of  the far side of the road – quite a way off and the metal curves are far higher up than they appear here. 

Okey Doke. I am back. NEAR AND FAR. Now for my Saturday morning of self indulgence. I’m sitting in our rural cottage and thinking of my wee granddaughter who is in Sydney this very day to receive an art award. She’s a Country Kid and is “ extremely” excited. Imagine the things she will be seeing today ! The next image is through a low glass ceiling up to Centrepoint Tower.

I still haven’t stumbled across the ONE shot which sums it up for me – but I will. First I have to go and vote in the local Council Elections. Maybe I shall take the camera and see what I see en route.  In the Meantime, our breakwater and footbridge leading back to the town of Urunga:

This Weekly Photo Challenge – Near and Far – had me stumped for a little while, then I realized I actually did have some photos that might suit the theme.

I generally take photos that are restricted: parks, gardens, birds and flowers where there is no horizon at all, only sky, but there have been occasions when I’ve been elsewhere – outside of Hyde Park 🙂

So, the first of these for this Weekly Photo Challenge – Near and Far are of the Swan River with the clouds streaming away into the distance.

 

These next two are also of the Swan River, but taken from St Martin’s Tower In April.  The first looks west towards the sea and if you click on the photo, you can discern Fremantle and the Indian Ocean quite a few miles distant.   The other looks to the east and the Darling Ranges – an…
