Sydney Australia by Emily McGuire

Yesterday I went to Sydney for the day. I didn’t venture from Circular Quay and around Opera House (I had things to do in that area). I took some photos to share though.
Sydney Harbour is beautiful. No matter how many times I have seen it (and it has been a lot), I am still amazed by how pretty it is. I also love the ferries – Circular Quay is obviously a great place to sit and watch them. And of course, who could forget the Sydney Harbour bridge?

I hope you enjoy the photos below.

Chi Town – by Emily McGuire (Australia)

Hello to you blog reading people. I had plans to take photos all week, of course it slipped my mind. Then it was Sunday night and I was without photos. So I went through my large collection and found some that I took in Chicago when I was in the USA. I LOVED Chicago – I was only there for a short time, but we did an architectural cruise and I just loved learning about the city from the water. I would do it again if I went back. So here are some photos I took on the cruise – hope you enjoy 🙂 chicago4

Small town – New South Wales, Australia by Emily McGuire

Morpeth is a town near Maitland in the Hunter Valley in New South Wales. It is known for its jazz festivals, quirky shops and gorgeous old buildings. It is situated near the Hunter River and I spent many days on the river at Morpeth with my family on our boat. It brings back great memories to go back there to visit. Today I went there and took a few photos to share. I hope you enjoy them and a big happy new year to everyone!
Check out my photos on my blog: http://www.sylimephotos.wordpress.com

IMG_1732 Normally Morpeth is bustling with people, but I went late in the day, so it was very quiet (quiet enough to stand in the middle of the road to take this photo)

IMG_1708 This building (barn) is not technically IN Morpeth, but I still love it. I have driven past it about two million times (I am rounding up) and I have ALWAYS ALWAYS wanted to stop and take a photo but I never got around to it, until today.

IMG_1717-2 I seem to find myself drawn to old, gorgeous houses in this area. They are so magnificent.. They do not build them like this any more, sadly.

IMG_1721  Again with the old fashioned things you never see any more. A red phone box. It doesn’t seem to have a phone in it (I didn’t actually look that close inside). But it is just beautiful. (I feel I may live in the wrong era!)

Here and There – USA, UK, Australia by Emily McGuire

Again I am running behind in posting. Again, I feel like I am stuggling to find photos to post as I haven’t had the time to go out and take new photos. So today I am sharing a selection of different photos I took a while ago. Please enjoy and if you want to see my other photos please visit http://www.sylimephotos.wordpress.com

Next month I promise to have brand new photos to share 🙂
