Here's a slide show of the day. I hope this works better. Just click on the underlined sentence, Dad. :)
(And now, this has taken WAY longer than I wanted to take but you can look at the slide show in Photobucket OR Flickr - your choice. I'm out of here.)
Here's a photo journey through our day at darling Harbour
Cryptic Clue (for those who know) - I was as green as the water I was looking at. That's Declan checking out the humungous goldfish.
I switched my ornery lens for the phat lens so rather than take a photo of the sculpture I took a photo of Sophie-Lee with blurry antlers!!
We found this balloon on our way to Paddy's Markets ( I hadn't been there for about, ooh, 25 years!!! It hasn't as much as I thought it might have.) We had every intention of giving the balloon away but...
I just love these lanterns.
No idea what these are but they're green :)
Another Color Me Katie inspiration. This mannequin was just standing there begging for a portrait - so we obliged.
The lady was worried that we might break said mannequin and he's worth $400 and we'd have to pay. 'twas okay - he's still in one piece.
We left Paddy's market with Sophie-Lee wearing an orange hat, me wearing Sophie-Lee's head band thingy and without the balloon :(
On a rare occasion I am the subject of the photo.
This was a fun "ploppy" fountain and I had fun taking a photo of it.
Part of a sculpture.
Part of a water feature. I love the fact that children can play in the fountains and water features. Sophie-Lee and I were entertained by two little boys and a water feature.
Funky didgeridoo playing...
and a spunky dancer - entertainment on a completely different level.
Ernest the Magnifico at the height of his act. I feel quite proud of myself that I caught the car mid-air and pretty much in focus as well.
DH: Look! That building is falling over.
DH. The one with all the windows!!!
Me: Oh! That narrows it down.
This, believe it or not, is Douglas putting his hand up to be involved in a street theatre act. LOL!
That's all for now.
