Reasons for not going to church ! by 

1 .. I was a little hoarse & couldn’t sing well.
2 .. There was a barbed wire fence in the way.
3 .. I didn’t have a thing to wear.
4 .. I couldn’t find my glasses to read the hymn books
5 .. The door was too small

This is the Anglican Church in St Albans, north of Sydney, Australia.
It looked interesting from the bottom of the hill, but no so photogenic close
I’ll add a better shot of the horse later.

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.
