I took the opportunity to put the trip to another purpose, taking photos for the latest assignment on the photography course I'm doing. We had to choose a theme: so mine was rural NSW | people, places and things! Here's a selection of my favourites...
There's been a squillion canola field pics on instagram in the last month or so, but gee...I never tire of them. And I can't tell you how chuffed I was to work out how to do the slow moving water thing too...although I won't tell you how many attempts I had before it worked!
When we were in Walgett there was an aboriginal rugby competition on with teams from all over the place. I am pleased to report (as a born and bred Novacastrian) that the Newcastle team won! There were kids galore having a fabulous time...
And on our way back to Canberra we just had to stop in and stay with Julienne...I was allowed to take photos of her stuff...and what a rich source of stuff there was!
Coat stand in the longest hallway in the world! And here's the woman herself giving Richard a tour of the homestead :)
Had the best time, loved experimenting with the camera and even better, got to meet new people as well as see dear friends.
I had been scheduled to go to Shanghai with work but my participation got cancelled at the last minute...so I got to go to Walgett instead...
...the Shanghai of the west!! Oh well, there's always next year.
