A little while ago I told you I love new technology .... well, I have ventured into the world of iPhoneography and took myself on a mini tour of our beautiful city (Canberra) today to have a play. I'm still very much on my L-plates and have much to learn but I hope you enjoy seeing a few shots of where I live.
Before leaving home, I felt it necessary to take my very first pic of one of the half dead roses in my front courtyard ..
And now off to Lake Burley Griffin near the CBD - that's the National Library of Australia in the background ..
Blundells Farmhouse - built about 1860, this little stone cottage pre-dates the national capital. It was originally surrounded by paddocks, sitting alongside the Molonglo River for more than 100 years. Over time, the national capital has grown around the Cottage, replacing the paddocks with government buildings and suburbs. Blundells Cottage is significant, being one of the few stone buildings of its type to have survived intact in the Australian Capital Territory
And now let's pop across the lake to Old Parliament House and the Rose Gardens ..
On the way home I passed the church where my daughter was married three and a half years ago (St. John's Church, Reid) so I popped in for a few final shots.
Hope I haven't bored you too much and that maybe you enjoyed seeing where I live. I think this little camera is going to be good for my crochet and knitting pictures. I accidently took a very close-up photo of the steering wheel of my car and it turned out great.
Hope you're having a great weekend.
