Drawing week

Last week I went with a friend to Cockatoo Island to see an art exhibition called Drawing Lines in the Sand.
The exhibition was quite small so we had plenty of time just to wander around the island.
One thing I loved was seeing dozens of people, sitting in various locations sketching.

After chatting with one of the artists, we discovered it was drawing week at one of the art colleges in Sydney.
I thought it looked so lovely to sit in this beautiful place and create art. 
I would have loved to join them, but it's not really my thing...
 so I took photos.

I loved how they were all so engrossed in what they were doing.

scavenger hunt

Last week I went with a friend to Cockatoo Island. 
Cockatoo Island is a heritage listed island in Sydney Harbour. You can find out more about it here.
It has an amazing history and fantastic buildings and  more recently has become the host to many art exhibits. 
We went to an exhibition called Drawing lines in the sand:
 "six installation projects that engage with various aspects of Cockatoo Island's institutional heritage and topography."

I was able to collect photos for this week's scavenger hunt while I was there. 

This installation has to do with boundaries, barriers & dead ends. Something to do with  the regimentation of behaviour. Didn't really get it.
However, the way that the bars & tapes & flags crossed over made me think of this prompt.


 A glimpse...
of the Harbour bridge.

This graffitied bus was from a previous street art exhibition. 

starting our adventure with a coffee.

mostly grey, with a splash of red!

shadow shots

I haven't joined in with shadow shot Sunday for a while.
So when I spotted these shadows on a recent walk with Poppy, I thought I would take some photos.

Snap it {yum}

A BBQ on Saturday evening- a beautiful sunny afternoon after a rainy morning: 
potatoes, salad, meat  & a nice glass of red wine.

spiral staircase

When I was a child I used to love visiting people who had a spiral staircase.

 I thought it would be so fantastic to have one.

And now I do. 
It was in our house when we bought it 10 years ago.

It's actually not as exciting as I thought-but kids who visit us think it's quite special!

ten on ten

Ten photos over ten hours on the tenth day of the month.
Joining in with Rebekah at a bit of sunshine to document my day....

Made school lunches,
 washed & folded washing while a tradesman did some installing, 
a combination of sun & rain (sunny while i took Poppy for a walk), 
& a few other bits & pieces.

This is what my day looked like..

Hope you had a great day too.
