About Me

My photo

With more time on my hands these days, this gives me something to do. I hope you get some pleasure, along with me, in sharing this new stage of my life.

An Afternoon Around Sydney Cove.


I spent the morning using up my free Paxton's 'Digital Camera Course' at the Menzies Hotel in Sydney. The course was run by Joe Moreno who, some of you may have seen, flogs cameras on the 4ME shopping channel on TV.
After the course I met Lynn at Circular Quay for lunch, and then we went for a walk around to the Opera House and through the Botanic Gardens to Mrs Macquaries Chair (also known as Lady Macquaries Chair) and then back to the Quay. I took this opportunity to try and see if I had picked up any tips from the course.

You might know Joe from the shopping show on Channel TVSN.

Hope she says "yes".

Ohhh, there's nothing like a wedding.

They make a lovely couple.

Trying to get the best angle.

The Opera House was popular today.

Everyone wants a photo to take back home.

When buildings lie down.

Lynn melts into the crowd.

Ferries jostle for position in Circular Quay.
