Flowers & excitement in – & for – MtLawleyShire

Friday was sunny but very windy, not much of a chance for photos but I got some flowers:

& the building of the clouds:

Saturday the clouds divulged all their promise: it was all house cleaning while it rained & stormed outside.

Sunday?

Sunday I went to the city.  These two photos are outside the Perth Convention centre: sunlight coming through leaves and the convention centre itself.

I am slowly returning to earth.  Sandwiches & champagne were wonderful with friends & supporters of my long PhD journey.  Those years also gav  e me photography and painting.

Now to apply it 😀
