As old hand SHSers know, I love to take photographs. And when I go to terrific places–and Australia is really terrific–I take a time out from our usual fare to post a few of my shots. Here goes.
The Apple Store in downtown Sydney at about 8 PM. We walked past the store several times over many days and the place was always packed:
The “Three Sisters” in the Blue Mountains to the east of Sydney:
In the temperate rain forest of the Blue Mountains:
These birds’ camouflage plumage made them almost impossible to see–even close up:
Melbourne at dusk:
Hobart Harbor (Tasmania): Starfish in three feet of water with overhead clouds reflecting from the sea’s surface:
Icebreaker in Hobart Harbor:
The Bob Barker, the ship of the anti human Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, was in port. No, I was not invited for tea:
Perth skyline from across the river:
Outside Perth, sunset over the Indian Ocean:
I was attacked by this cockatoo right after I snapped this photo. Apparently he didn’t like A Rat is a Pig is a Dog is a Boy:
Sydney’s famous opera house with the famous (and magnificent) Harbuor Bridge in the background flying Australian flag:
Beautiful Sydney Harbor:
Nature hike in Manly, across the harbor from Sydney:
For those interested, I’ll post many more of my photos on my Facebook page in the coming days. Now, back to being oppressively serious.
