Fishing with dad or, caught and bowled!



In Burswood Park on Sunday to take photos of something so completely different I couldn't walk by without taking a quickie shot of the sweet father/daughter scene above. A different view of the city looking across from the southern side of the Swan River. If you are a cricket enthusiast the stadium lights seen a bit closer below light up the WACA Ground (Western Australian Cricket Assoc), the pitch regarded as 'one of the quickest and bounciest in the world. As of February 2016 four of the nine fastest Test centuries have been scored here' but as host to international games it's 'all out' for the WACA.. fascinating stuff right :) Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. to see similar above shot in b & w with a touch of colour have a peek here!

  8. Lovely photos. Great shot of a Dad and Daughter out fishing together. It is the stuff of positive memories. Had to smile at your comment about cricket. Asked an Australian friend to explain cricket to me. I finally had to beg off several hours later or his presentation, complete with diagrams, might have gone on all night, just like the game.

  10. Nice picture of the dad and daughter. I wonder if she can put her own worms on the hook? I know that when my son first went fishing with his new father-in-law, he was too squeamish to touch the worms, F-I-L had to do it for him. He's Ok with it now though.
    Great skyline. And I used to follow cricket in England, not played much here in canada.

  11. I love the father/daughter shot, skirt and girlie hat and all. And a nice shot of the skyline. Mention cricket in the U.S. and the typical person would think you're talking about an insect.
