foreshore walk

Yesterday I went on a very long walk with a friend-we caught the ferry to circular quay then walked for 15.6km (nearly 22,000 steps) along the foreshore to Balmain. It's part of our plan to walk up & down the Parramatta river & around Sydney Harbour. It is such a beautiful way to explore our spectacular city. It's been a project that we started in October 2015 (see here) & have been taking opportunities when we can to get together & complete sections our walk. We have 2 sections of Parramatta river to go then we might make some plans to explore other parts of Sydney by foot. 

One thing we really love is to see all the sights & colours from a different perspective. Plus it's always great to spend a day with a lovely friend.

last days of January

So,  this week routine kicks back in with early starts and to do lists, everyone in the family has new adventures & challenges for 2017.  It's been incredibly hot & dry this summer so we've had plenty of time out & about trying to keep cool. 
I just thought I'd post a few photos from January that capture a bit of our summer.

I spent the day with Justine yesterday at the beach & we decided to revive our two takes collaboration after a break for a bit over a year. A new project for 2017, slightly different to what we had previously posted -check it out here if you'd like to have a look.

ten on ten

Ten photos over ten hours (or a bit less today) on the tenth day of the month. A great way to document my day. 

I wasn't sure whether I'd keep going with my ten on tens this year as I was getting a bit forgetful towards the end of last year but as I had a fun day planned I thought I'd continue.  I went with a friend bike rinding in Centennial Park -then we had lunch together in a beautiful (photogenic) cafe nearby. 

This is a bit of what my day looked like ...

6:53am    dahlias, more pink than orange in real life- must have been the light
8:34am    shoes ready for bike riding
10.29am  my friend Caroline ready on her bike outside a cafe
10:59am  a spot of colour
11:13am  swans on the lake
12:23pm  entry into the Grounds in Alexandria
12:28pm water while we wait
12:40pm salads & sparkling mineral water
1:03pm   pots on the windowsill
1:11pm   colourful fruit & veg on the bench
