12 of 12 for April 2010

It's that time of the month again and no it's not the visit from my special friend. What it is, is time for the 12 of 12 photo blog post. I took these photos from around the city and by city I mean Sydney. I'm going to let the photos speak for themselves. So, to you I say enjoy. Oh and as for the mystery photo from last month the photo is that of a close up of a glass block. anyway as I said enjoy the photos. I hope you like them as much as I liked taking them...

OH! A huge apology to Chad Darnell, the man who started this project. I feel terrible for forgetting to tell everyone about him. Anyway. the 12 of 12 is Chad's idea and if you want to know more about the project or about Chad himself you can find everything you wanted to know right here.

Just part of a very colourful fountain

A very old gas lamp that has been converted to electric

Artwork carved into some sandstone

One of many street fruit and flower vendors

Did you forget something for your work day, do you just need a quick snack, or want the latest gossip magazine? Whatever it may be these downtown street vendors probably have it.

This is a very cool piece of artwork that hangs from the side of a building and I liked the way it looks like it is floating over the coffee shop

This is this months mystery photo. so take a guess and as usually I'll let you know the answer next month

Another cool piece of artwork hanging in the lobby of an office tower

I have lived in this city on and off for approximately six years and i have never seen this sculpture but how could I have missed that colour?

Part of a very large fountain that sits in the middle of Hyde Park

Another piece of the same fountain. I have a thing for fountains this month. I'll make a separate post to show you the entire fountains that these partial pictures were taken

I think these guys are hilarious. They are lawyers and that is what they wear in court. some of them are judges and depending on their experience the bigger the white wig. Well that's it. I hope you enjoyed and I'll see you next month.



the mysterious pic:
a museum or gallery or something...
and the lawyer cracked me up silly!!!
nice set!
still working on mine, as it's still early in the day here...

Great pics this month, as usual.

The mystery pic... the underside of a viaduct or bridge.

I especially love the sculpture hanging above the coffee shop.

Hi Tony, nice pics out and about in Sydney as always. I really like the sculpture/artwork hanging above the coffee shop as well.

Haven't got a single clue what the mystery photo is this month. Unless its chairs stacked on top of each other, hmmm.

I like the heron fountain and the horse head part of the fountain the best, I think! Nice to see a little of where you live, out and about - glorious weather too!

I remember once hearing the reason why they wear a wig, but I forget it.

Regina said...

Beautiful as always ... I enjoy every single one of your pictures ... and your comment on the judge makes me smile :-)

Bec said...

I love the shapes in all of your photos!
So much photo-worthy stuff in Sydney. Thank goodness for digital photography, when I went to Sydney I ended up with over 250 photos of the Opera House!

I like the fountains and the lawyer is really something!

Mysterious photo: The underneath of a spiral staircase?

Totally love the photos. Our rural life seems boring in comparison!

Jill said...

I think the mystery photo is a ceiling of some sort. Maybe an amphitheater?

I love all the fountain fixtures and the old lamp.

Nice 12!

linoue said...

Great photos!
I am in love with the bird fountain, WOW. A lawyer weraing a wig, (hoping that was a wig), just incredible (and your comment, very funny).

As 4 the mystery photo, I'll take a guess: Lawyer's wig close up?

Blobby said...

Picture #5 is just a outline of a tie-fighter from 'Star Wars'. I swear! :)

Nice job.

Love all your photos this month - especially the judge/lawyer. I so want to visit Australia one day - definitely on the To Do list, and your photos always make want to make it sooner rather than later. My company finally started flying there, so hopefully it isn't as remote of a dream as it had been.

Nice 12 of 12. I don't know what the mystery photo is but I like it. How could anyone take those lawyers seriously? LOL Thanks for sharing and stopping by my 12...
Sorry so late making my rounds.
