Sunset ND110

Sydney May 2013 (2 photos)

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ll be taking a break from blogging for a while (a month or so) due to various work and other commitments. I’d prefer to let you know beforehand that I’ll be disappearing, rather than leave and have you wondering, whatever happened to…? But I’m still here until the end of the week, so you’ll have to put up with a few more photos until then. For now, here’s something different from me.

Into the light 2

Sydney May 2013 (2 photos)

I was out for a walk late in the afternoon and the sun was setting. I saw this glorious patch of light streaming through the trees. So I stopped and chose a suitable vantage point.

Or at least, that’s how it seems to me whenever I see these riders and their horses.

Autumn afternoon 1

Sydney May 2013 (2 photos)

OK, a little poetic licence, this isn’t quite the yellow brick road but at least this is in Oz and it does seem to be golden in the late afternoon sunshine. As it is now the final week of Autumn here, most of my photos until the end of the month will be in autumnal colours. Most; not all. 🙂

O!

Twenty years ago, I was walking along this street in Chicago when I saw a television crew surrounding this very well dressed woman. She looked important, tossing her hat in the air, as if for some television commercial. I remember having to step around the pavement to get around her and the crew. I spent a few minutes watching the scene and then I took a photo because, I was a tourist and I had a camera with me. I had no idea who she was. It wasn’t until later, back in Australia, that someone looking at my photos told me that this woman was Oprah and had a somewhat popular television show. O! 🙂
