Perth from the south side..



It was a grey day when I took these shots, grey but not cold.. about 21C if I remember rightly. You don't see South of the river here very often but coming back from Victoria Park on Saturday we stopped to get some city views over the lakes on the South Perth foreshore. If you pull the shot below right in, reeeally right in :) you can just make out the new sculpture at Elizabeth Quay. I believe they have big problems here with people feeding the bird life on the lakes resulting in sick and even dying birds, there are signs everywhere.. don't do it people!


In the background below you can see the Narrows Bridge which crosses from North to South over the Swan River.. and up there on the hill the State War Memorial in Kings Park. It's definitely spring weather here in Perth.. rain one day sun the next. Perfect weather for planting trees, I'll have to decide soon :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe... p.s. so weird to post such dark images :)

  7. Your pictures make me want to come to your country even more than before. You all have life RIGHT! You respect history and continue to offer to your citizen the beauty of the arts to come. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. I so wish I was the person on the bicycle pedaling around that lake. It is so pretty. Loved seeing your photos today. genie

  11. Great views. I think your skyline looks great from every direction. Like here in the desert, I'm not used to seeing clouds in the sky over Perth but, it does make a nice change when it happens.

  12. It really was inspirational to build the war memorial where in the park and visible from the north and south banks of the river.

  13. Lovely shots Grace, even with the gray weather. There are signs here warning people not to feed the birds, but they do it anyway.

  14. You got it - wild animals need wild food. Quite a bit prettier than South St. Louis.

  16. "..Not cold 21C!" That's 70% in real terms woman!!!
    Looks bright to me...
    An almost wild parkland shown there, a good idea as this will bring in wildlife.
    Lovely idea but only two ducks seen?

  20. I am glad to see other people do have those grey skies too sometimes:) We have sun now!

  21. What a cool place you live in. And grey days? I often turn those shots into B&W since there's so little color in them anyway.

  24. Agreed, Grace, unusual dark pics - I so hope for a bit of rain when we´re back - please more than 90 seconds!
