O, Sunlight! The most precious gold to be found on Earth

rest is not idleness

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching th clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.

Carpets of Purple

New Farm Park, Brisbane

In October every year, New Farm Park in Brisbane comes alive in a glorious display of purple. The avenue through the park is aligned with a canopy of Jacarandas on either side. The leaves fall to the ground and creates a carpet of purple flowers. The jacarandas only blossom for a short time and invades the beautiful park with the powerful purple. I haveĀ  always loved the display of colour in October, the sometimes dull and dreary streets come alive in with the colours of springtime and you can’t help but feel alive too. If you are ever in Brisbane make sure you visit New Farm Park, located only a few minutes away from the CBD and the Brisbane River.It is truly one of the icons of Brisbane.

Beautiful Queensland

Ellis Beach, North Queensland

This is the beautiful Ellis beach north of Cairns in Queensland.

It was perfect day to see my cousin get married in a simple beach wedding.

Palm trees, blue seas and golden sands which stretch as far as you can see.

Sugar train tracks in this picture are quite common in the town of Bundaberg.
Bundaberg is a small town 4 hours north of Brisbane, Queensland.
This photograph is taken in the Botanical Gardens, highlighting some of the beautiful landscape.
Whenever I see train tracks I always wonder where they go. It is a simple mystery. It is as if the tracks beg a wanderer to follow them.
