For this week’s instalment of the 52 Week Photo Challenge, The Girl That Dreams Awake has chosen the theme of ‘Peaceful’.
Her own interpretation is an image of a pile of books and that inspired me to dig out this photograph, which I took a few years ago somewhere around Sydney. What could be more peaceful than sitting quietly in the sunshine by the waterside and reading a book?

Don’t ask me what plant these berries are from. All I know is that this photograph was taken a few years ago in the Botanical Gardens in Sydney.

Another entry for the Mundane Mondays challenge hosted by PhoTrablogger.

I’m participating for the first time in the ‘Mundane Monday’ challenge hosted by PhoTrablogger. There are two aspects to the challenge: to find beauty in mundane objects and/or to place the mundane in a beautiful or interesting frame.
This image takes the second option. It was captured while on a late afternoon boat trip on Sydney Harbour a few years ago. The canoe at the centre of the photograph is a fairly mundane object in itself (although it was nice of it to be orange against the blue water). However, the rigging in which it is framed provides the real interest and – literally – focus.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a very large object, so certainly qualifies for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week.
Wikipedia can give you all the statistics, but to get a visual idea of how big it is, look at this image of the central part of the metalwork and consider the fact that those are people standing on top of the structure, immediately below the flags. It’s possible – if you’re that way inclined – to take a tour of the bridge’s superstructure. I imagine the views are spectacular.
