Title: My photography
Post by: Halo on December 04, 2010, 05:53 AM
Thanks Daisy, for setting this up for me.  Now what the heck do I do with it!  :tongue


Actually I do have and idea what I would like to do here. Post photos of my home town,
Melbourne, other places I visit, and some of my 'arty' photos. Maybe a favorite poem of
mine or a favorite from another poet.


The Eureka Tower is the tall building in this shot taken while crossing the Bolte Bridge. It's okay
I wasn't driving.

When the sun shines at the correct angle on the top of this building that big square is colored gold.
Obviously my timing was out   wink*



Collins street, Melbourne...the expensive end of town.

Melbourne looks like it's a nice place.  I love the architechture of the buildings.  I also love the lily pond, very pretty.  Can't wait to see more - it may be the closest I ever get to Oz, although it's on my list of the places I'd love to visit.

Thanks Lady SunShine, the Lily pond is beautiful. It appeals to our poetic natures I think.   :rose

Thanks for posting those pictures Halo, really enjoyed them and is always good to see pictures of for me far away places, so I can have a little bit of an idea how it looks like!

I have to agree, the lily pond is beautiful, and to me a touch of Egyptian mystic with the papyrus growing in it...

I do hope to see more pictures for sure!

Thanks Dutch, pleased you enjoyed them. I posted these in a bit of a rush, forgetting I had to upload them to Photobucket first. I will
take more time with the next group of photos. And it's true, posting photos here gives us all a chance to see what it's like in places
we may never get to see for ourselves.
