What light through yonder window breaks?

Her eyes in heaven
Would through the airy region stream so bright
That birds would sing and think it were not night.

Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.

With love's light wings did I o'erperch these walls;
For stoney limits cannot hold love out,
And what love can do, that dares love attempt.
If thou dost love, pronounce it faithfully.
Or if thou thinkest I am too quickly won
I'll frown, and be perverse, and say thee nay.
But trust me, gentleman, I'll prove more true
Than those that have more cunning to be strange.

Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow
That I shall say good night till it be morrow.

Gorgeous photos, Julie. I love the rust-coloured paint in the second shot. Perfect.
Thinking of you.

Julie brings Shakespeare to the suburbs of Sydney. What a great idea. I always find it interesting how we all see something different in the same image. I couldn't see Juliet until I read the text.

I love the air of secrecy you've captured in the last one. I must explore Darlinghrst next time I'm in The Big Smoke! We spend most of our time on the ferries when we stay there.

Julie said...

I can quite understand your spending time on the ferries when in 'the big smoke', Brenda. Wonderful way to experience the city.

Mark said...

There is huge connection between Paddo, balconies and R & J, what about the Verona Cinemas as well!!!!

Julie said...

Hah! I had never made that connection before, Mark. Changes my outlook totally!!

Gunn said...

LOVE your very stylish and very different balconies!:)

Julie said...

Thank you Gunn & Bergson. I am learning and growing a 'new' sense of style within me that has a very small footprint to suit the times.

Those tiny balconies aren't much use but they sure look good.
