along the laneways .....



~  suburban Prospect  ~
 
I love the many lane-ways of my city
especially after rain when puddles
add character to these little out-of-the way places

just before rain ........



Semaphore Beach  ~
too early for a life-guard in the look-out
 
Dark clouds gathering which before I reached shelter
had turned into a drenching rain,

the old packing shed .......



just off Piccadilly road  ~
 
While rambling around the Adelaide Hill I spotted this old packing shed
and cottage ruin nestled in amid the vines

North Haven Marina .....



~   North Haven Marina   ~
 
it was a blustery night when a friend and I headed out for a photo-shoot
 but about 15mins after the sun had slipped quietly below the horizon
 there was a moment of calm and the dark cloudy sky lit up with deep shades of pink
  that's when I was thankful we had ventured out
and that we had brought our tripods
time to clickety -clack !!

Tour Down Under .....


 
 
Adelaide's version of the Tour-de-France
attracting riders from all around the world
 

 
 
It was a fabulous week of riding and certainly tested my
action-shot skills with the camera
 

 
and the winner is  .....  none other than a very popular
Australian rider Simon Gerrans who hails from
Melbourne Victoria
 
can't wait till next year's tour

soft grey skies ......



~  Semaphore Beach ~
 
I've taken to walking this stretch of beach most mornings
to drop a few kilos accumulated over the Christmas break
plus strengthen up my legs for my trip to the Cinque Terra

 
along the way skies change form soft grey to blue
and sometimes the most pretties of soft lilac.
 
 I promise myself that my camera
will not be coming along
But it always does - just in case !!

on my way to the movies ......



 
a typical scene in my city in summer
people sitting at out-side cafe's chatting
bikes chained to any post they can find

at the end of the day



~   Grange Jetty   ~
 
 
At the end of a scorching hot day it's nice to head to the beach
and watch the sun slowly slip beyond the horizon
Cool at last !!

gone to rack & ruin .....



jetty ruins   Port Willunga   ~
 
 
relics of a maritime past dating back to 1868
when this jetty was a bustling working port
 
now remaining as a photographers delight
and a place for children to scamper over rocks

the rotunda .....



Rotunda near the river Torrens River  ~
 
much prettier at night with it's lovely pink/lavender canopy
even work cranes which have been an eye-sore on our
city scape with new buildings under construction
take on a softer appearance in the evening light
