Is it a trick of the light?
Or a glimpse of an unseen realm?
I like to think this green man or tree spirit allowed me to see him in Petersham Park, Sydney, NSW, Australia.
Early evening, late Spring
Distant city, lush green
Peace and quiet, birds sing
Randwick Racecourse, dew sheen
Trees a plenty, Sydney
Australia, for me
I attempted to capture the contrasting hues of the water and the sky in this picture. It was one of those moments when the sun catches the turquoise waters of Rose Bay, Sydney, NSW, Australia; meanwhile malevolent rain clouds gather overhead.
About a third of the way from the left, you can just make out the golden top of Sydney (Centre Point) Tower.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been admiring the regal colour of the flowers of the jacaranda trees.
This one is located on the upper campus of UNSW, Sydney, Australia. One of the Faculty of Medicine’s buildings provides contrast in colour and form.
Take a moment
See beyond walls
Life abounds here
I took this picture recently in the Garden of Frienship, Sydney, Australia. It inspired me to write a few words about the physical, spiritual and psychological aspects of friendship.
Leave city bustle and tours,
Head over to the eastern shores,
To enjoy a rosy afternoon.
If you don’t leave too soon,
This bayside resident you’ll meet;
Eats à la carte; Pelican Pete.

A typical example of a turn of the 20th century Sydney suburban house; single storey, double fronted with a tin roof. What is unusual is its neglected appearance.
The setting sun’s rays catching the ridge tiles on the roof and the watery looking clouds caught my eye.
This former tram booking office has been renovated as part of an upgrade of Newtown railway station. Built at the turn of the 20th century this building has been repurposed for retail. It stands in stark contrast to the former tram sheds featured on this blog earlier this month Urban decay.
Heritage listed tram sheds sit decaying alongside the recently modernised Newtown railway station, Sydney, NSW, Australia. Authorities attempt to minimise the visual impact of graffiti by painting over it using ‘mission brown’.
