Nature versus sport..



Lovely spot to sit and ruminate :) To the right of where I was standing to take yesterdays shots Perry Lakes Reserve was looking green and lush after the rains we had last week, not enough though to make an impression on the two lakes within the reserve that were mostly dry...


... and to the left the Bendat Basketball Centre.. WA's state of the art basketball training facility opened in 2010. Check out the much better images of the interior and exterior than mine on the link.. So what's it to be? Hot and sweaty shooting hoops.. or daydreaming/reading/listening to the birds under the canopy of eucalyptus trees! One of those options seems so much more preferable to moi, bet you can't guess which :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe...

  2. In younger days I used to play village cricket which gives you the best of both worlds.

  6. You do some great architectural work in Perth. I think this is a wonderful structure. But, I shall join in the shade of the ol' oak (or whatever) tree. No sweaty loops for this old man!
