Taking off... à bientôt!



Here we are again.. so excited to see my Sydney famille while at the same time irrationally apparently, panicking at the thought of flying! It doesn't matter how many times well meaning folk tell me it is the safest way to travel I cannot get my head around that theory.. thank heavens for that little white pill :) Aimee and I are leaving at the crack of dawn so, à bientôt.. take care and most of all stay safe until we catch up next weekend. P.s. Below a few random shots from around and about over the last few weeks..

Watch the dinosaur arrival in Elizabeth Quay..


From an exhibition of photographs by renowned Australian artist Bill Henson at Art Gallery WA.. Mr Henson's luminous lighting is exquisite.. mine not so much :)


Looking out to the Swan River from Kings Park.. if you have three minutes to spare have a look at the latest video here, unbelievable views over the city and river, so worth a watch..


The many layers of the paper bark tree..


Back in Art Gallery WA. Generational appreciation of art is a pleasure to see. This exhibition by WA artist Gregory Pryor, made up of 1585 sheets of paper, with the help of a team of students, was a lengthy endeavor to construct...    


Last but not least an aerial shot of Busselton Jetty. At 1.841km long it is the longest timber piled jetty in the southern hemisphere, check out the link here, what do you think, definitely worth a visit when we get back from Sydney? Btw I didn't take the shot :) See you soon..

  2. Glad you had a nice trip. Very nice pictures. I too dislike flying anything commercial. I love small to mid sized aircraft like I learned to fly. Choppers are fun too.

    Wow, that paper art is amazing and of course Kings Park is a must.

  6. You put together your own photo art gallery for us before you head off to Sydney! Thanks much. My fave is the dinosaur arriving at the quay! Hope you have a wonderful time. Valium works wonders for me, too. But I've got a solution ... it also works for me: I simply don't fly anymore. If you want to see grandpa or great grandpa, get on your horse and giddyap! But then I'm a lot older than you are and can get by with stuff like that. There's got to be some advantages for the elderly, right?

  17. Have a truly wonderful time with your family, wish I was going to Sydney with you. When I visited Australia, the only part of Sydney I saw was the airport! Saw lots of the rest of the country though!

    Have a safe trip, Grace, and loads of fun with your family!! xx

  20. Very nice shots. Safe travels...see you when you return. (Hope you can manage the flights with minimal stress. I've been completely swept over with that sort of fear occasionally in high places. Reasoning talk is useless.)

  24. But flying across Australia is fun! I have a strong memory of flying from Alice Springs to Cairns when the crew invited our children up to the cockpit. Those days are gone, unfortunately.

  31. Hi Grace! I hope you're back at home safe and sound and that you had a super time in Sydney! I'd love to see Sydney too, just as I'd love to see Perth, but neither are going to happen. Damn! Anyway, I wanted to thank you very much for your great comments on my blog...I know that took extra effort on your part and it's very much appreciated! I'm not sure whether it's still Friday there or Saturday, but I'm wishing you the best weekend ever!
