Welcome to Sydney ...

So, as you may be aware … I've been taking a fair few photos lately … at least one a day to be precise.

I would estimate that approximately 98% of these photos are taken within the house or at least the boundary lines.  Which is a little boring … for me … and you as well.

So I said to Hubby … "Hubby … I'm bored … I want to take a photo of something different."

And as a result he drove me down the freeway to Sydney for the day … just to take photos.

I went a little crazy and took a vast number of pictures … that's the delight of digital photography … until it's time to cull them.

Firstly I needed to cut them down to a slightly less ridiculous amount.  Then I needed to cull those ones down to an acceptable number for a blog post.  Then I had to cull those ones down to just one … for my picture a day project.  Do you realise just how hard it is to pick one picture from over 200 pictures?

Of course you'll get to see THAT picture next Sunday … when I present my weekly post.

But today … I give you the rest of the short list … which isn't very short ... I just couldn't cut any more out … I tried … I really did.

 Today … you lucky folk … hold onto your hats ... you get to endure enjoy the pictorial extravaganza that is … MY VIEW OF SYDNEY … hurrah!




















The End

Hang on … just one more …


That's it … promise.

    1. Methinks it would be the perfect subject for a horror film … maybe I can get Gerard Butler to star in it and I'll be the damsel in distress ;0)
