Wordless Wednesday No. 40 From my Office Window

Sorry, just a couple of words... Both of these pics, I can see from my Office, one (AMP Tower) IF I tilt my head to the right and look through the trees...

Some stuff around town...

Today, was SUCH a lovely day, I took a walk to get a couple of photos... These are some of the ones I took... These little buggers, really do some damage when they are out foraging for some lunch or dinner. The Sulfur Crested Cockatoo has a powerful beak, so its best to NOT feed them if you want to keep your fingers!

Next, up, when walking around Farm Cove, I spotted some anglers trying to catch some dinner. I am not sure if any of them have succeeded yet though...


Then I got into the Royal Botanic Gardens a little proper, and they are just stunning at this time of year.

I also got a shot of Fort Denison, but due to it being late in the day, and heat haze, it is not the best really...

And there are some Glass Story Panels called the 'Veil of Trees' (Installation by Janet Lawrence and Jisuk Han) that are really quite fascinating to read. And at night, they have some very subtle lighting to show them off as well!

Tomorrow, for Wordless Wednesday, I will be having something very colourful that floats, so stay tuned!
