I just checked into Sydney International airport. I was cleared through passport control and experienced my first body scan. After a walk that felt like miles I arrived at the lounge.
I don’t know why I looked at my boarding pass after eating a light breakfast. The surname was correct, not the first name though. So much for airport security!

Sydney Opera House (1957 – 1973) is a masterpiece of late modern architecture. It is admired internationally and proudly treasured by the people of Australia. It was created by young Danish architect, Jørn Utzon.

The warm stone and brick facade of St. Francis Xavier’s Cathedral contrasted against an ominous sky caught my eye during a recent visit to Adelaide, South Australia.
Once darkness had fallen the road washed with green light in front of the Cathedral reminded me of two hymns from my childhood:
There is a green hill far away
Jerusalem by William Blake
The first filled me with sadness, in contrast, I always enjoyed belting out the second, have I mentioned I was a chorister until my voice broke?
One of my favourite sights of Spring in Sydney is the blue flowering Jacaranda trees (Jacaranda mimosifolia). The challenge is to take a photograph with a darker background as the colour gets lost against the blue sky.
