Sydney skyline with Neither Harbour bridge, Nor Opera House

I like taking Sydney Ferry service as it is refreshing experiences with fabulous panoramic Sydney views seen from the water.

You will never experience the same by other public transports or drive a car.

This photo was caught when I took F8 bound for Cockatoo Island  for visiting a friend living near one of the stops en route.

The view brings me a mixed feeling; the angle covers Sydney city with a series of new buildings including the corn head Crown and those of Barangaroo on next.

It finds me that it is a new look of Sydney skyline.

On the other hand, I kind of feel that this is not Sydney.

Yes, I miss the number of iconic architectures in the photo,….where are you, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House?

…….Ah well, the glimpse of the head of Sydney Tower on the back!

Well, at least I enjoyed the ferry ride on that day too, catching new perspectives and new discoveries onboard.  🙂

Crown is the new Sydney icon of harbour view.
Aww, helloooo Centre Point! I see you! 🙂

Do you like the new Sydney skyline?  🙂

Thank you for stopping by.

 

‘You can take a photo of me…’, the snaps of the curious gull on the beach ~撮られたがりのジョナサン~

This summer was not as hot as the usual summers in Sydney.

I missed (or almost forgot) making my typical beach time packing beach throw, sunscreen, and the straw hat together with some favourites in the basket.

So I took a long morning walk the other day to soak my foot and appreciate nature and the moment where I felt.

While I started being space out on the beach and just enjoyed the touch of water and sand, a seagull caught me in the eyes on its landing to the edge of the cement pipe.

The lone seagull stood afar.

I enjoyed taking some morning snapshots.

The seagull lost my perspectives, that every look I gave to, it came closer to me.  It was like, as if it never paid attention to me existed there, but it never got out of frame of the view.

It even looks like the gull might have made posing to help my snap looking better.

Finally the gull turned to (the last shot) look at me straight.

‘Sure, you can take a photo of me’

….Is that what you just said to me?

After the last shot I caught, the gull flew away from me.

I wondered what the gull would have commented if I could show it the last shot and ask….

朝の散歩に砂の上を歩いていたら一羽のカモメが目の前のパイプの先端に降り立つのが見えた。

その日は薄曇りで風が出ていたのだけれど、その風を浴びているジョナサンは(カモメさん許して)一瞬孤高にさえ見えた。

私もスマホで写真などを撮りながらふと気づくと、確実に私との距離を縮めているじゃあありませんか。

その都度私の方などはもちろん見ることもなく、独り風を楽しんでいる風だったけれど、ついには私との距離をほぼ目の前に詰めて来た。

そして、グッとこちらをみる。

あれ、ポーズ決めてる?

「撮ってもいいよ」

。。。。って今そう仰いました?

最後の写真撮った後、ジョナサンは何処かへ飛んで行きました。

この写真、見せることができたら、なんてコメントくれるかな。

という朝の一コマ。

The Laughing Kookaburras

The lovely couple perched on the tree branch i passed by on my morning walk. They must have been romantic and humming or even chatting about the impeccable summer day that just began.

Yes they bursted out laughing,😊

気持ちよく晴れた或る夏の朝、ウォーキング途中で見かけた可愛い笑いカワセミのペア。同じ方を見ながら、何やら囁き合うのかと思いきや、期待を裏切らない豪快な笑い(鳴き)声。そうだ、これが彼ら流の囁きだったのかもとこちらも笑顔に。☺️

Thank you for stopping by.

End of summer

The crystal grid of the period

This grid of rocks was placed in late October and left it unmoved until now.

I like rocks and minerals to collect and I like playing with them too.  I like making spontaneous grid with the stones picked up randomly.
This layout is one of them in which there are a couple of ‘unusuals’.

Unusual 1.  I have some rose quartz but I usually do not my first choice in playing.
However, for some reasons, I had got my head filled fully in rose quarts pink and gathered all rose quartz I have to place on the table.
I probably needed some graceful energy and rose quartz must be the best rocks holding those soft and graceful energy (in my opinion).

Unusual 2.  I generally keep the stone layouts for several days then deform them, but this one left my regular ‘rock spot’ in my lounge space over a month.

What impression do you have at them?

Do they click some sense in you?
Well, I feel the time to deform comes, I will finally start making a fresh layout with fresh mind tomorrow morning.
石好きな私はその時々の思いつきでクリスタル・グリッドを作り、自宅の居間の片隅に飾っています。このグリッドもその一つ。10月後半に突然柔らかいピンク色のイメージが浮かび、普段あまり選ばれないローズ・クォーツ達を中心に並べてみたものです。
通常であれば、数日でグリッドは解体されるのですが、今回だけは別。結局一月以上飾っていました。
様々なピンク色がありますが、ローズクォーツのそれはとても優しく柔らかいものです。
明日の朝このレイアウトとお別れして、全く違う新しいグリッドを作ることになりそうです。

People Crossing Over The Tram Rails

It’s been quite sometime since I put my last post on here.  

And unbelievably, there is only one month to go till the end of year 2019.  

New tram service ‘Light Rail Sydney’ seems to start this year, for the first time since they had stopped the tramway network service in 1961.

しばらくブログから遠ざかっていました。

早いもので今年もあと残すところ1か月ほど。

今年の締めくくりという事でしょうか、シドニーに新たな路面電車が開通する予定なのだそうです。

写真はシドニー・シティを縦断する、ジョージ・ストリートに設えれた線路とその上を歩く人々。

Thank you for stopping by.

Hint of spring

is just right next to you, leaving its scent on the nose.

You can see it even under the overhung rock platform at the corner of a local beach.

春は確実に来てる。寒くても確実にその匂いを感じる。

春はすぐそこにいる。小さな海岸の隅のせり出した岩肌の影にだって。

Slide show of paint arts

…made by nature, drawn over the vast canvas.

As it was an early morning, it made me feel i obsessed all these amazing artworks.

Sunrise, sunset

日の出の空。

まだ世の中は静かで、広大なキャンバスに展開されるアートを独り占めしている気分。

壮大で言葉も無く唯々見上げる。

Thank you for stopping by.
