12 of 12 for June 2011

Well, well, I've finally made it back to 12 of 12. I have to tell you that not only was it raing all day which made it extremely difficult to take my pictures but then for some reason there was a computer malfunction and I don't know if it was between the camera and the computer or if it was a problem with iPhoto but I finally got these pictures up the long way around and I didn't even get to put up the ones I really wanted but none the less here are June's 12 of 12. Enjoy... (I'm also sorry to say that they aren't in order as I'm tired an frustrated but there here) Oh and one more thing I have to thank this man for starting the 12 of 12 project.


The entry marker to Hyde Park in the middle of downtown Sydney



The tree canopy the runs from one end of the park to the other


This lovely fountain is on one end of the tree covered walkway and the war memorial is on the other end


Yet another fountain in the park. It'a bit of a rain/water/fountain theme this month what can I say it/I was wet all day


This is this month's guess what it is picture....


The main Apple store in Sydney


This lovely, quaint, little fountain can be found in Martin Place near the Central Business District downtown...


This statue of a boar is supposed to bring you good luck if you rub it's nose and as you can see it gets a work out but can't say that it's done much for me, because I have tried. Hey it can't hurt...


No real reason for this picture other than as far as fall/winter changing of the tree/colours this is about the best you'll get in the city...


I mentioned the War Memorial earlier and here it is... I just checked all the pictures and I don't know why this one came out so small, but hopefully you can see it well enough.


This statue is in the centre of the memorial. I wished they had cleaned up all the junk down around the bottom. It's a bit disrespectful not having it tidy in my view...


...and last but not least I thought this was a cute way to keep people from parking in front of your garage. Something tells me it works... Well that's it for this month. Hopefully I will have my mechanical breakdown fixed but the time July set rolls around. Take care and I'll see you soon

I liked the boar the best.

i have in my iscelaneaous section another pic with a tank foryour garage door, that should also do the trick...

i'm too tired to guess. glass panel thing-y, whatever...

don't talk to me about rain or wetness. the sewers here could barely manange with the downpour we got here...

i can't even look at a fountain [however pretty it is or even a glass of water without being nauseated. it's been THAT kind of spring here...].

fun set of pics nonetheless!!
see you next month.

I'm so glad I have "friends" around the world who let me visit their countries each month without need of a plane ticket. What you've shown of Hyde Park is absolutely beautiful. I love the little fountain in Martin Place....I can only imagine that it would be fenced off in the States....wouldn't want anyone falling in, you know. How nice to see it as it was intended. I'm glad you're back. Hope your move was uneventful. See you next month.

The boar is cool, reminds me of the Wall Street Bull. It was a rainy day here too, pooh.

Enjoyed the tour of the city - and though I'm sure it wasn't as much fun to photograph in the rain as it would've been on a sunny day, I liked the richness it gave your pictures! My favorites were the tree canopy and the "Yet another fountain in the park". (Also loved those beautiful sunflowers in a previous post).

I like the grey/rainy aspect to these pictures. Some places you expect to be sunny and warm all the time, so it's fun to see them when they're not.

Great to see you back in the flow, TJ!
It's strange to think you are now entering your Autumn/Winter, as the picture of your trees turning proves.
Your HYde Park looks beautiful, even in the rain.

Fun to see an Apple store there, and loved the garage scene!

Have a great month!
