Taken in Surry Hills, Sydney, Australia with a Fuji Finepix F810 camera.

This is a sight I saw often when I lived in Surry Hills for 8 years.
I’d pass it on the way to Central Station.

The original church building become a budding actors centre.

This was not taken in autumn. Some of the leaves on this tree occasionally took on autumnal colours & I loved the look of them against the beautiful brickwork & features of this old church.

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.
