Loved the shapes of this building in Sydney – all curves and bubbles…
…excuse the odd lights – two of these were taken through a window.
Our first stop on the Indian Pacific was at Broken Hill (also known as the Silver City) where lead and silver deposits were discovered in 1883. The Barrier Industrial Council, which is an amalgamation of the labour unions here, remains a strong force in the city. We visited the Trades Hall, where we were treated to, and participated in, a rousing union meeting.
Tried to capture some Tui shots down at Virginia Lake today, but they proved as elusive as usual, plus I still cannot walk very far. But I loved the peeling bark and beautiful shapes of the eucalyptus with little glimpses of glossy feathers in between.
TUIS (with apologies to Joyce Kilmer ‘Trees’)
I think that I shall never see
a Tui clearly in a tree….
a tree with bark so loosely pressed
that hides a secret feather-dressed
a bird with plumage blue and green
with sculpted branches in between
poems are made by fools like me
but only Tuis hide in trees
