Theme Day - My favourite part of town


Centennial Park is one of my favourite parts of Sydney - but I have many. It has wild sections, it has manicured areas, it has garden beds and lakes, children's playgrounds and equestrian fields. Truly Centennial Park is a place for 'everyman'.

This looks like a great spot.

You series on the cruise ship behemoths was spectacular.

But the picnic table.... there's something very discontinuous about it's presence, as though it's just arrived, or just leaving perhaps.

I think I should like to be sitting at it right now, or perhaps better in an hour or two.

I think this would be my favorite place, too. I love the old trees and the emerald green grass.

This would be my favourite place too. It's wonderful.

Jilly said...

I thought you'd choose a green space, Julie. Lovely shot. We all need peace in a city.

I really like the perspective of this shot, with the rows of trees. It's one of my favourite places too.

I truly wish in my up-coming Sydney trip I had time to explore this gorgeous park you keep teasing me with!

Ann said...

Its certainly a lovely spot. There's always something new to explore.

Dianne said...

Green and shady ~ lovely on a summer's day.

Bob Crowe said...

Easy to understand why, with such a beautiful and impressive colonnade. I'd like to meet you at that table for lunch one day.

Peter said...

and no people!

Joan Elizabeth said...

You have taken us on so many adventures in this park, it's easy to see it's a favourite spot for you. Its interesting to see what people have selected.

Mary Ann said...

Oh Beirut could use a park like that! If we had one, then maybe I'd have a favorite part of town too--as it is, my favorite place remains somewhat metaphorical.

Oh, what a lovely and peaceful place. Very good choice!

Jack said...

A very nice choice. The majestic trees and deep green lawn catch and keep the eye.

EG Wow said...

Looks like my kind of place. :)

Lois said...

I would love to be sitting there under the shade of those beautiful trees!

prhnz said...

One of the great treasures of a city with many treasures! And a beautifully serene scene, great composition.

GW Bill Miller said...

What a wonderful avenue of huge trees. This looks like it is part of a Harry Potter story.
