Winter residence..




Often the trees are the only way to tell that it actually is winter in Perth.. the plane trees and buildings along Hay St. reflected in the glass facade of the Central Park building. Can you see the nest high up on the right, the advert in 'nests to lease' would read something like this.. 'built to withstand high winds, spacious, prime location offering expansive city views, reservations essential'. It seems to be occupied all year round and I did catch sight of tail feathers but pffft no long lens.. how did that happen :) Have a great weekend, be prepared! Take care and stay safe...

  5. wonderful shot! it's so funny to think it's mid-winter down under. My husband & I are on the coast of Maine, high summer, and it's beautiful. The thing I mmiss most in winter is what I have right now. He's finishing a week of photography classes with Jay Maisel, now 83 yrs old & still a dynamo. My husband has enjoyed every second of class time & I've enjoyed every second of solitude.

  10. Now that looks like winter, some of your photos don't really show it, must be those type of trees.

  16. Well done, Grace. That looks like a big nest, for big birds.

    (The balloon pair were not my models . . . they were with a professional photographer who was posing them, so I quietly followed them until he had them stationed in front of Trinity Church, when I lifted my camera and took 5 or 6 fast photos.)
