It's been such glorious weather in Sydney this week, such beautiful colour in everyone's gardens.
These are some things I collected when I was walking the dog this morning.

Joining in with Lou.

Luna Park

I was looking through my archive of photos trying to find something when I came across this Luna Park reflection.
Thought it would be perfect for weekend reflections.

nature on my window sill

A bottle brush that I picked from someone's garden while I was taking Poppy for a walk.
A lovely burst of colour on my window sill.

stills:: lately..

::art gallery of NSW- I went to see art express - a selection of the best artworks created by high school students for the HSC examination.
 I was really impressed (you'll have to check the link to see images of this exhibit...it was too crowded for me to take photos)
Instead I took a few shots of paintings that I liked in a quieter part of the gallery.
:: an orange flower in the botanical gardens (just a short walk from the gallery)
:: bamboo- looking up/ looking through
:: a trip to the beach last weekend

An early autumn flurry of blooms in my front garden.
So, I brought some inside.
They smell beautiful!

ten on ten

It's time again for ten on ten....
ten photos over ten hours on the tenth day of the month. 

Looking for beauty in an ordinary day..I always enjoy documenting my day in this way
 (even if it is a bit hard sometimes) 

Beautiful morning light to start the day, my nieces shoes at church, hanging around mostly in the middle of the day & a jazz concert at Charlie's school (he's the trombone player!)

nature in the home

I thought that I would join in this week with the nature in the home series at little green shed.
I'm not really one for indoor plants (despite the fact that my father made his living selling them.)
I forget to water them. 
However, this poinsettia was a gift that we received at Christmas time & over 2 months later it still looks quite festive.

stills:: bustling bondi

Here is another instalment from my Bondi visit last week, a variety of shots from our day....

I loved this dog watching & waiting eagerly for his master...

as we walked we saw quite a few people being photographed...

and then we wandered up the street for some coffee.

The skate park was really interesting, we enjoyed observing...

and as we walked around the headland we saw plenty of people throwing things into the water for their dogs to fetch!

Loved the light here.... had to stop & take a photo.

Thought I'd link up with 'stills' at the beetleshack

scavenger hunt

I love that this weeks scavenger hunt is colours! 
When I was at Bondi beach the other day I thought I'd keep my eyes peeled for the colours of the rainbow, 
it wasn't hard.
