Mindarie Keys marina by georgieboy98
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase



I took this at almost exactly midday and immediately afterwards went into a Keyside cafe for a bite of lunch. It was very pleasant sitting in the shade watching the boats coming and going whilst I ate my croissant and drank my tea. This is on the Indian Coast in the nothern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia, perhaps 35-40 kms from the CBD. As can be seen by the size of the homes this is a VERY upmarket area. I should add that, when we first came to live in WA this was a straight and overgrown stretch of coast – the marina was man made, which took a fair while to do and when all was ready the waterside blocks sold for well in excess of one million dollars, to which had to be added the cost of building a house! Considerably more than my pay as a humble photographer would allow!
I was still using my new Sony A77V, 24.3mps, 16-80 Carl Zeiss lens, aperture priority, no filter.

    Very nice scene

  • Thanks very much Mik. It was nice to visit there again but rather sad, too, because that is where Betty and I often used to go for morning tea and a stroll around.

    Yes Peter, if definitely looks like homes for the rich & famous ! Great angle and colours !

  • Very many thanks Roy. It has developed into a very large suburb now but it’s still a very enjoyable place to pass away an hour or two.
