and furthermore.....!!


As a follow on from yesterdays post, heading into the city our destination was Kings Park where I took the pictures of the ferocious looking dinosaurs and the wee willy wagtail.  I love the view from the top of Kings Park looking over the tops of the Swan Brewery which has been revamped into The Old Brewery to the city and the Narrows Bridge that bypasses the CBD and crosses over the Swan River to South Perth below. It's not the actual bridge itself that causes me all the tension, it's the numerous lane choices before you actually get onto it, and even though they're very clearly marked, by this stage I'm a little blinded by panic.. Arrrrrgh! my computer is on a go slow, it's driving me insane, and yeh I know that's not a stretch haha! I hope your week has started well, have a fab Tuesday.....

  5. When we see those wonderful skylines, hard to believe you can be stressed living and driving there..The place seems so beautiful and peaceful (from far..)

  6. I do not think you are crazy, Grace...just delightfully frank! This is a great photo, but I also understand your tension at the lane choices! I hate having too many choices...I like things pretty straightforward and simple!

  9. Nice shots!!! Hard to show that sense of panorama as you do here. Do you groom and maintain your computer?

    Have a GREAT Week

  10. Some freeway lane choices are mind boggling at times especially the down here where the Tullamarine Freeway meets the Calder Freeway if you blink or sneeze you'll miss your turn off :-).

  14. Oh my goodness, these are! gorgeous! I'd be so blinded by the beauty it might (almost) make me get over my highway phobia (yes, the lane changes, plus merging with fast traffic, are what get me!)

  15. We shall have to start a collection for your driving therapy. Such a beautiful city deserves a drive-about from time to time. I learned to drive in the suburbs of NYC and went straight into it as soon as possible. Maybe it's easier for boys.

  16. We are both showing off the views of Perth from Kings Park! Except my shots were taken a few years ago. Heavy rain today - good idea to stay in, certainly no driving on the freeway for me.

  17. What a great view. Nice shot.

  18. The first photo is a 'sell Perth to the world' shot. Kings Park must be quite special.

  20. J'aime ces vues dégagées! Paysages urbains, et pourtant tellement ouverts!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Blue sky, that's more like it!

    ReplyDelete
  22. A magnificent view! The spread of water softens the cramp and bustle of the city!

  23. Both shots are wonderful Grace. Great clarity and detail. Love the way the gum frames the top image. Great composition.

  24. It´s a beautiful part of our city. If I don´t have my gps with, I get lost a lot of times not being in the right lane...the Mt Lawley turnoff baffles me all the time.

  25. Both views are fantastic! Great shots, Grace.

  28. When I say 'It's driving me insane..." Most of my friends remind me 'that'll be a short trip'. hahahaha

  31. Even in winter Perth looks inviting, nice shots Grace...

  32. Green grass and a river of Glass, Rainburst on the hill recounts the fleeting winter chill. Mill of white, reflecting the light, The "Wagyl" is quiet today.
    Only in Perth can the sky be that blue, even through the midwinter cloud.
    Reflections of old and a new addition to the skyline positioned perfectly to host a burning summer sunset.
    Magical frames of a city I will always be mesmerised by. I miss you.

    Thank you for the moment.
