The same but different.. à bientôt.



It's the same spot as my header shot but I was surprised to see when last in the city in the evening that the artwork had changed, now a couple of galahs that I'm sure you will recognise :) I like the idea that this perspective to the city could become an outdoor canvas for Perth artists, couldn't see a name on this one unfortunately.. will be watching this space!


Sydney here I come.. hopefully :) I'm kidding! The rational part of my brain says 'Grace, breathe it's all good', the stronger irrational part says 'eeeeeeek!' Are there any other white-knuckle fliers out there that understand what I mean? Take care and keep safe until I catch up with you next Thursday. Happy Wednesday and à bientôt ..

  7. It's nice that the art will change, Grace!
    I'm a fearful flier too but somehow manage to survive without having a breakdown. I alway make sure I have lots to read or watch movies for the whole flight - I never sleep just in case….! Crazy, eh?

  11. Fine photos today. Love both the mural and the real bird. Grace, do NOT worry about flying. You are safer on an airplane than in your own living room.

  12. I love those birds Grace! I used to be a white knuckle flyer, but I have managed to get better. I just try not to think about the flying and concentrate on all the wonderful things I will get to do and see when I get there. Have fun!

  24. My sister in law and her husband live in Sydney. Too busy a town for me though we have had some great holidays the flight are just too long and I have said never again! I don't mind flying but not for 26 hours!!! Hope all goes well and you enjoy. Have a great weekend, Diane

  25. The artwork by night light is so enchanting. The colours seem to glow so softly and appealingly. Enjoy your time with family.

  26. Enjoy your visit, Grace. My daughter is coming to Naples with her husband and two little girls on Friday.

    I was a white knuckled flyer when I first began many decades ago. Once I realized that I had no control over what happened and it was a waste of emotional energy to tighten up, I started relaxing. Good thing, since I have flown a lot for years.

  28. Keep the image of the beautiful flying birds and it will make you happy during the trip. Have FUN!

  29. I'm not especially fond of flying either, but not because I'm afraid though. It's the hassle of getting to the airport, checking in, security screening, etc. If I didn't know that flying is by far the safest way to travel, I might be worried. Nice photos Grace!
