Last weekend's folly [Oct. 8th, 2007|08:22 pm]
Stephan
The first one was actually taken on the previous weekend, and is the street corner near my local railway station. It adds continuity for the all the other photos which I took yesterday.

In total I snapped 65 photos, but many were repeats and a lot are things that wouldn't interest other people, such as the industrial estate near my home. I'm puting the nicer ones on display here:

Henry Lawson was a popular Australian author and poet in the early 20th Century. (It's not really a cave, just an overhang)

Walter Burley Griffen designed our nation's capital city... and this incinerator. (One a source of garbage, the other a place to conceal garbage).

The foliage is so overgrown in the valley that it's no longer possible to see the Cameray Bridge in the background with it's castle like towers. I'll have to snap some decent photographs when the weather is cooler.

Our heavy roads have underworlds as well, but they're not quite so landscaped like yours are :P

Good set of pictures!

The cycleway/footpath has been there less than a year. It was a blatant vote grabbing stunt by the State Government, at a time when our hospitals and public transport are in cricis. I'll take a photograph some time in the future when it's all gone to weeds and graffiti.

One more thing:

"One a source of garbage, the other a place to conceal garbage"

Which is the incinerator and which is Canberra? They both fit each description ;)

[The foxaroo glares at the cat and hurls a catnip mouse in his direction.] :P

Canberra's a source of garbage, and the incinerator was a place where they tried to make it seem that garbage was being disposed of... until the residents pointed out that they weren't happy with the garbage becoming airborne.

Nice landscaping, there.

I especially like the fifth one, it has a nice "Rivenic" look to it... ;)

Heehee! I'll have to take your word for it; there's not enough time for me to go through the wikipedia article(s).

Looks good, but from now on, please put sets of pictures behind LJ cuts so we don't have to scroll like mad on our Friends pages. Use this code, with right-angle brackets replacing square brackets:

[lj cut text="Here are my pictures!"][img]picture.gif[/img]
[img]picture2.gif[/img][/lj-cut]

Oh, I just realized I made a mistake there. Be sure to put a hyphen in the first "lj-cut" too.

I think you mean:

<lj-cut text="Here are my pictures!"><img src="image.png">....
</lj-cut>

Beware the power of the ampersand!

Hey! I'll ALWAYS pay attention to advice, even when I'm unable to comprehend and commit to memory.
