There's always something lovely about getting outside, breathing fresh air, walking around & taking photos of beautiful things.
I needed that this morning.

the beach

 Over Easter we spent some time at the beach. It was really lovely. One thing I love about the beach is the way it changes; low or high tide, wild or calm, crowded or deserted. 
On Saturday afternoon we wandered along the beach. It had been closed for swimmers because of the wild surf, but there were plenty of people and pooches enjoying the glorious afternoon sunshine, a gentle breeze and some long afternoon shadows.

an autumn afternoon

Even though it's been a bit rainy and a little cooler over the last week,  autumn has been  slow to come this year. With gorgeous afternoons like this one, it feels more like the end of summer than halfway through autumn. I'm not complaining at all. I had an hour spare this afternoon, so decided to explore a new (to me) location. 
This is Clive park that sweeps down to the foreshore of middle harbour in Sydney. It's probably busy on the weekends but today it was so peaceful and quiet, the afternoon sun sparkling on the water and the gentle waves lapping around the rocks.

:: I wasn't in the best position to photograph this tree kangaroo, but loved seeing the little surprise in her pouch when I uploaded the photo onto the computer
:: another mother and baby enjoying a snuggle in the sun- more zoo photos here
:: James and Charlie- I've been trying to capture an image that shines a light on how having a child with a disability affects family life. Siblings become carers in some circumstances & Charlie in this photo shows such care & patience as he explains to James the events of the day.

ten on ten

I know I say it every month, but I do enjoy joining in with Rebekah at a bit of sunshine for 'ten on ten'.
It's ten photos over ten hours on the tenth day of each month. Seeking beauty in the ordinary.

This is what my tenth looked like...

the zoo

 I had a fun morning this morning at Taronga zoo. I went along to a tour, where a volunteer who enjoys  photography gave a few tips on taking photos of animals. It's such a great place to be with a camera. Here are just a few of the shots I took today.

Today I went to Cockatoo Island for the Biennale of Sydney. An art exhibition that occurs every 2 years in a number of locations around Sydney.
It was a beautiful day & Justine & I enjoyed wandering around. Here a a few things that caught my eye...
