  1. “Window touch-up” is priceless! Great work as usual Jane!

    • Hi Cynthia– Thank you! I didn’t really know what I had until I got home…I saw her coming toward me and didn’t realize she was primping when she stopped. Too funny. Your kind comments are appreciated!

  2. Great set of photos showing life in Sydney!

  3. A nice collection of photos. With all three posts on Sydney, it’s like I went along on the trip. 🙂

  4. Jane Had hoped to see you before you left. Now enjoying Australia again., and reminded or our travels there. Our fav – Perth- where we made friends with cardiologist and family. SO SPECIAL! Hope you do not need their services, but we know some good ones there.Thanks for sharing. photos are fantastic!

    • Hi Ann and Bill, How lovely that the photos are bringing back such nice memories of your time in Australia. We won’t be making it to Perth this time but I hear it is wonderful. Thank you so much for checking in- glad you are enjoying the photos. Miss you! J

  5. You have caught lovely moments…I especially love those Bondi boys and the Five and Alive.

  6. I see you are expanding your bus stop collection! Fun post Jane, and a lovely look at the city scenes down under. I’m partial to Five and Alive myself!

  7. Very interesting shots, Jane. Each one has a story.

  8. Fabulous photos. I live in Sydney but don’t get out of my suburb of Mosman much anymore. Age caught up with me, alas! So it’s wonderful to visit the familiar places in your photos. Cheers, Irina.

  9. Were you on a search for the dragon tour? 🙂

    I used to know Glebe like the back of my hand when I was at uni. Crown Street and environs are a nice area. Were you here during the sculptures by the sea exhibit?

    • Hi Lignum… Why yes, we were 🙂 Glebe is great and the uni campus is beautiful. We missed the sea exhibit, unfortunately. As you can see, we are enjoying every minute of your beautiful city!

  10. LOVE these….especially the ‘weekend warriors’…..great slice of life shots. Looks like you 2 r really becoming a part of the landscape there…..what FUN!!! ENJOY!
    ps. miss u here…..

  11. I like the « window touch up » 🙂

    • Hi Meho, Thanks! I knew I wanted to catch this nice women coming down the street toward me and didn’t realize until later what she had stopped to do. A funny moment captured 🙂 Appreciate your comment.

  12. Your pictures are fabulous. It is great to be a part of your trip. Miss you!!

  13. I don’t have all day made me laugh out loud. And I admire your restraint on titling the best fitting swim suit shot.

    • Hi Leah, Ha! Glad to make you smile. That women meant business.. And the swimsuit scene is our train stop and I just loved how that guy looked sitting there. Hmm.. caption contest? Will be on the lookout for more of that scene. Thanks so much for your comment.

  14. I am literally in tears these pictures are so good.

  15. Fabulous scenes of life out and about Sydney. We are finalizing details of our trip, and will be in Sydney at the very end, Feb. 1-4. Missing your smiling face!

  16. Suzie said it well…light and line going well together. I especially liked the movement in Angel Wings. Looked like the girl was going forward and the walkway was going backward.

    • Hi Sharon, That fountain area at Darling Harbor is fascinating and I was so pleased when this little girl with the pink wings flitted by! Thanks so much and it’s great to hear from you. Hope all is well.

  17. You are really having some fun! Though the challenge was “light” you have captured light and “line” as artistic and design companions. Thanks for your wonderful photos. Hugs, Suzie

  18. So happy to be here with you! The Bondi Beach Boys just made me smile… Looks like a. Clip from an old movie! Missing you… Linda

Love to hear what you think...
