The paradoxes of Paddington - 1

Gipps Street
According to The Paddington Society, Paddington contains 184 streets and lanes, 6 parks. 14 hotels, 18 galleries, 1 hospital, and 3 schools. In addition, it has about 12,000 residents.

Each Friday, we will stroll the streets together and meet some of the people.

Paradoxes, indeed, Julie, but even in the last photo I see some beautiful flowers, far off to the left.
Beautiful and interesting images. Thank you.

It sure is an interesting suburb. The angle of your shots is very good. You have a great eye for photography. How many sleeps before France?

Julie said...

8 more sleeps ... 8 ... wuhoo!!

My son synchronised my desktop and netbook yesterday. He will get me a dongle next week and then all I need to get upon arrival is a 3G sim-card ... and presto!

Julie, have you got room in your suitcases for a couple of small bloggers? I would love to come along and sample some Vins de France. On the cruise ship I fell in love with Chateau Neuf du Pape, an amusing little red. But $$$

Julie said...

*grin*
now THAT would be a hoot!!
Chateau Neuf du Pape sounds like it could be from the Avignon region. I am not into vin that costs $$$ ...

Wonderful streetscapes.

Top one looks like Europe, not sure whether the bottom one looks like Europe, small town USA or Scandinavia.

When do you get back. We really should catch up before long.

I am going to miss you Julie.

CNdP - near avignon heading north towards Orange - there is a small community of Aussies there.

I love the perspective on all these shots! Very artistic.

Julie said...

Onto it Peter ... looks good. I spent two weeks on the Western side of the Rhone in '08 and this time will spend 2 weeks at Carcassonne. On the lookout for another fortnight during 2011, though.

Are the Aussies winemakers, do you know?

I love these quaint Sydney houses, and you really presented them to best advantage. The last shot is different from my stereotypical view of terrace houses - like it.

What a delightful set of images of the dense dwellings in this fascinating suburb, they are all great but the top shot is a gem ... the colours and the bare twigs ... perfection.
