Albury/Wodonga in Winter

In Australia, on the border of NSW and Victoria, there is a twin set of towns called Albury and Wodonga. What separates the two is the mighty Murray River. One of my friends recently retired and moved down to Albury from Sydney. I went to visit him in July, between semesters at Uni. Its an Historic town, with some lovely old buildings including an iconic pub. Some of the photos were taken at the lookout, up a nearby hill. Some were taken in the towns botanical gardens. Here are some of the results of that visit.

Enjoy

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Roadscapes

711

This is a photo I took years ago on a little HP camera. I have recently just found all the photos I took on that camera again. So I cropped it, put a yellow filter on and voila. This is a road on the way to Coonabarabran; which is in the bush of NSW Australia.

Bent Art

The Blue Mountains hosts a number of LGBTQI events during the June long weekend as part of pinkFEST including:

  • the very popular dance at Blackheath on Saturday night
  • the Three Sisters Costume Ball on the Sunday night.

The Blue Mountains have wonderful cafes and restaurants and all the gorgeous natural beauty that abounds in the area.

Why not tell your friends and make it a queer weekend in the Mountains in June 2014.

The Bent Art Exhibition opens on Friday night and  I have 2 works exhibited.

Would be wonderful if those in Sydney could support.

I went bush today. Into the rural areas of the Hunter Valley. I had left my camera at home, but took some photos on my tablet. Hope you enjoy this small selection.

Mini canvas boards.

image

I decided that this year for my birthday, I don’t want gifts. Instead I will give them. As a thank you for coming to my birthday dinner, everyone will go away with a handpicked unique mini canvas board. Here are the first ten. Only about 30 to go.
