Another mixed bag this week viewers, a hasty collection from Newcastle and home. I took this panorama with my android phone at South-West Rocks, New South Wales. The beaches on both sides of this point are beautiful.
Now I know where the teddy bears have their picnics. This tree is on Thunderbolt’s Way, between Stroud and Walcha. From what I could gather in between dodging huge swarms of flies is, it has something to do with lost dogs. Still, the teddy bears look happy.
Many followers love Kangaroo pictures, so they won’t be disappointed this week. This handsome creature came up onto the house pad after a shower of rain the other day. He wasn’t too sure about having his picture taken though.
On the left we have mister inquisitive, I saw him sticking his head into the opening and by the time I picked up the camera he’d wandered around the back. That’s a blob of soot on his nose. On the right we have FrankenRoo, no I’m not experimenting on them. I thought about a weird shot and took it. I love the way the grass stands up between them.
Not the best picture but they do make for an interesting study. We visited Trial Bay Gaol a historic site near South-West Rocks. It was built in the mid 1800’s to house low security prisoners who were involved in building a huge rock groin to make a safe harbour.
This is the accommodation and kitchen wing, inside the walls. I love the attention to detail in the masonry.
This fern adds a touch of beauty to an I beam which used to support the floor for the top cell block.
Newcastle is an old city by Australian standards and has many fine pieces of architecture. I like Victorian houses and this is a fine example. Yes that is a pigeon flying past near the roof.
These terrace houses are in the city itself. Some are residences, others surgeries and the apricot one seems to be vacant. The wrought iron work is quite intricate and some of it needs a good clean-up.
Something of a contrast between the lonely terrace house and the dilapidated silo.
That’s it for this week, I hope to have some portrait shots for next week. So until then take care. Remember the pictures always look better viewed in a new tab.
