New uploads

These aren’t new photos exactly, but they’re new to the new site. They are under the category of Architecture and Buildings.

This first one, A little colour, is a shed at the old Fremantle Docks in Western Australia. I found it difficult to get good photos of this place – I could never seem to get the right angle, the one that combined all the elements I wanted.

This is Clean Lines, a building in Sydney (New South Wales) which wishes to remain anonymous. Well, that is, I don’t know what this building is; but I liked the contrast between the blue of the windows and the white-ish building itself.

Here’s another photo of the Grace Building in Sydney, a Deco structure with charm. There aren’t to many buildings of this era around, at least not ones that look as good as this.

The Sydney War Memorial: this is in Hyde Park, in the section closer to the Museum. I’m never sure what to think of memorials and the wars that they commemorate. People dying for the country…okay, if it’s someone like Hitler then war it must be. But I rather think that the majority of wars are for somebody’s greed these days.

Finally, Wall of Windows. It’s just a block of flats in North Sydney, but they have a monument’s imposing presence. Such an ordinary thing that looks so extraordinary.

More uploads to the new site

Here are some more uploads onto the new site. These were taken on Australia Day, 26th of January 2012.

If you think it looks cold, you’re wrong. It was quite hot, even with this ocean mist spending most of the day with us. It did clear for a while but then it came back.

It really was a remarkable day, and when I finally got into the water, continuously crashing waves forced air under the water so that it felt like being in soda water – very cool and refreshing!

One of many moods

Sometimes I feel more like a colony than a person, there seem to multiple personalities in me but they’re all called Paul.

So while I was listening to my 60s playlist on Youtube (I was very small then and don’t really remember it – which means I was there, right?) and going over some photos, I came up with these. They’re just a bit of fun, really.

Here’s a little Jimi to help you get in the mood as you look through the photos:

It’s raining right now, too, as I write, and that always seems good to me for 60s music.

Mysterious Black

Over the fence, sitting on the lattice of a backyard neighbour’s upper storey deck, this mysterious puss seemed annoyed as I made silly noises to get its attention.

Ladypuss a real lady

The half-wild Ladypuss. I think she has a home and I think it’s called ‘The Earth’.

Blue Lady

Ladypuss, seriously

She was actually sitting on my lap a the other night when my wife’s hairdryer started up and scared the !@#$ out of her. She leapt up, climbing my face to get away, leaving me with scratches under my right eye – very close. But she didn’t mean any harm and we’re still friends.

Outdoor setting for cats

Ivan uses this to jump up onto the fence – he’s nearly twelve now so it’s not as easy for him as it used to be.

And you may be wondering why my own cat, Ivan, isn’t in this post. I guess he’s just not the hep cat type. He’s more space aged:

Ivan again
