BLACK & WHITE Sunday: Moonless Walk Around The Bay

More storms clouds [and head cold] preventing me capturing the moon. But Hey I like clouds and storms [not head colds].



This view looks out towards La Perouse and the industrial/container terminal on the shores of Botany Bay. An ugly blight on the view by day, and fairytale magic at night.

I love walking along here at sundown and twilight. The perfect time for me. Watching the changing colours reflected on the bay, the lights coming on along the city skyline and the planes making their final descent towards Sydney Airport.


Better still, watching planes takeoff to destinations unknown and wishing and dreaming of future vacations.

Here is another grainy, blurry, yet moody contribution to Black & White Sunday

Sundown is a great time to be on the beach..., lots of color (changes)..., and usually not many people, and least in my corner of the world.

Hope you feel better soon...
Take care!

Hi Julie,

Thanks so much for the nice comment on my blog. I'm so glad you recognize the Sydney Pet Rescue & Adoption place. It looks like a great organization.

Your blog is wonderful! So many great photos and even some from the old Hollywood Glamour days! Hope you are having a good weekend! ~ Bonnie

You know, I live by Toronto Pearson Airport, and I always watch planes take off! It is so unbelievable.. I always try and guess where they are heading.. It's really fun!

I hope your head cold clears soon! These changing seasons have given me a cold too. I love the times of transition, but sometimes my body has a hard time dealing with them. I love the lights on the horizon in your magical!

As you say,looking at that photograph, you would never know that it was the Industrial area of Botany Bay.It looks like a buzzing city at night, it's twinkling lights promising so much.
Your composition in this photograph is great, and I love the cloud formations.
The only down side about it is that I don't have that on my doorstep !!!!!
AND.... is there a tiny tinge of yellow left around those twinkling lights ? I love that little touch....AND ....the grainier the better as far as I'm concerned.

You make me long for that moonlight walk along the beach. It's been sooooo long since I've done that. Watching the changing of the colors in the sky. Well I did do that the other night when I was driving home. I thought when I arrive home I'll try to capture it but it was too late....guess I should have gotten out of the car and caused a traffic
...."But officer you don't understand I need to take this picture!!!!!"
Happy Sunday Julie,
