    I’ve just returned from a walk on the beach on this the last day of winter! Woohoo! Despite the haze and clouds, the day has been surprisingly warm! It’s shorts and thongs on today. … We in this antipodean lands change our seasons on the first of the month. While the northern hemisphere still has a couple more weeks of summer before autumn begins. …that’s the info for the day. Lol. Hope everyone’s had a lovely day. 😊

    I look at this and just sigh. This is as the world should be, pristine and utterly beautiful no matter which way you look at it. 🗻


My heart engaged with this at such a deep level. The faces of the people around me was that of amazement and the only sound was the occasional ‘ooh’s’ and a few ‘holy cows’ from me! 🗻


I was with @paraviontas on their South West Wilderness tour. A 50 min flight landed us at Melalueca, then a boat ride into Bathurst Harbour brought us to this magnificent reflection of Mt Rugby in the waters. A lunch stop on the second of the Celery Top Islands was spent in wonder at the colours, waters, reflections, quartz pebbles on the shore and utter beauty of this part of the SW. 🗻


Do I want to go back? Yes! With all of you. Who wants to come? 🗻

    I’m still on a high from yesterday’s flight and tour with @paraviontas down to the South West Wilderness of @tasmania … Flying us down in three planes were these awesome guys who ‘posed’ for me on our lunchtime stop in #bathurstharbour …hehe, I asked if they would model for me! They fell over themselves laughing at first. Then I asked for ‘actions!’ This is supposedly the Usain Bolt image as done by the Flyboys! Oh they were such good sports. That’s from L to R, Thomas, also known as Captain Sexy 😂, Fin (who piloted my plane) and Michael. Not only were these guys awesome pilots but the information about the landscape as we flew and then on the boat and land tour was invaluable to learning about the significance of the area we were experiencing but just so informative and good as well. Thanks guys for an awesome day out… Plus there are more ‘interesting’ poses I got ( pretty funny if I do say! 😂 ) that I’ll post to your FB site soon. 😜

    I’ve spent the day flying with @paraviontas down to the SW Wilderness of @tasmania … This is a shot of Mt Rugby from Bathurst Harbour. 🗻

The day has been perfect for making the trip. Very little wind as you can see by the stunning reflections, and gorgeous sunshine to not only warm the back, but also the heart… Cause this little experience has made me fall in love with the SW. 🗻

You know my friends @jayedevil & @lovethywalrus , well, they did this tour two days ago and have been constantly talking about it since. So, @kathflem and I decided to go we never thought we’d get as perfect a day as they had. Well, Tasmania is always full of surprises and today was perfect. … I think if you decide to do this trip you’d get perfect too. 🗻

    I couldn’t sleep last night…consequently I’m so tired now. So, I hung my tripod out the window and took star shots. Lots of light pollution from Hobart city but it was magical watching the starry night sky. ✨

Hope you all shine like the beautiful stars you are today. 🌟 (at Howrah Beach)

    I look at this pic of the Queen Victoria Building skylights and the gorgeous light falling through illuminating the building and my mind begins imagining what it looked like way back in the day….ladies with full length dresses, hatted and gloved walking along clicking their heels on the tessellated tiles while gentleman in suits and two tone shoes ( one of my faves and it’s my imagining so I’m including them. Lol) that reflect off the shiny surface. … Ahh, I’m so glad I’m living now! I’d be tripping over the long skirts if I’d been around ‘way back in the day!’ 😂😂😜

The interior detail of the building is superb. Everywhere there’s something that glitters, is shiny or moves to the chime of a clock on the hour. There’s a real sense of time in the QVB. A time past and present and a future. … There’s a sealed letter displayed on the top level near the central dome. Written by Queen Elizabeth II in 1986 to be opened by the future Lord Mayor of Sydney in 2085, and no one but the Queen knows what it contains or written! Wow! I won’t be around when that letter will be opened. 🕑

Next time you have a wander in Sydney, add the QVB to your list of things to do and visit. And take 50,000 pics like I seem to do on every visit! 😁 it’d be lovely to see your interpretation of this beautiful building. 🏢

    This is a shot of part of the interior of the Queen Victoria Building, or QVB as it is affectionally known. Taking up an entire city block, the building is one of Sydney’s icons. Built in the late 1800’s, it’s architecture both inside and out is wonderful. Outside, the Romanesque design rises up to my favourite feature of copper-sheathed domed cupola’s. I’d so love to see all the domes from above. Anyone know of a nearby highrise I could get into that overlooks the QVB? Lol. Inside, much of the original decorative work remains, restored beautifully. Interior stained glass windows, arched skylights, colonnades, bulustrades, cupolas, trachyte stairs, tessellated tiled surfaces and deep striking coloured walls bring a modern representation of exquisite olde world charm. …. Do you think I love wandering in and around this building? Yes! I! Do! Check it out next time you’re in Sydney and tell me what you love about it. 🏢

    Taking a shot of an icon! This is @billiesthings We were up on the Pylon Lookout of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the views over Sydney were irresistible. So, here’s a classic shot of the Sydney Opera House. An iPhone taking a shot of an iPhone taking a shot. 😁

The Pylon Lookout is a fantastic way of seeing Sydney. Accessed by the walkway from the Bradfield Highway which crosses the Bridge you get such breathtaking views that the enjoyment factor is out of this world awesome! 😍
