2119 Beecroft

Beecroft is a quaint leafy suburb that has a quintessential English village feel to it. Why Beecroft you may ask? Well, it's as good a starting point as any! Arriving early in the morning, there was already a strong community atmosphere as we made our way through the stalls and attractions of Arden's annual fair. Following that, a stroll past the cafes and shops into the dizzying world of lawn bowls as the competitors flexed their [arthritic] joints and aimed for the jack!

New Project, First Blog!

So here I am blogging. No idea what I'm doing but I'll do it anyway!

Today Maxine and I embarked upon our newest photography project. Inspired by Louise Hawson's photoblog-book-exhibition titled '52 Suburbs', we have decided to chronicle our beautiful city of Sydney in pictures. How this will develop is anyone's guess. Hey, we went out there today and aimlessly pointed our cameras not knowing what we were looking for at first! But soon ideas started forming and our thoughts took shape. Although my project will be '26 - An A to Z of Sydney's Suburbs', it will be an A to Z in no particular order and more than likely have more than 26 suburbs. Well, as Max and I keep reminding ourselves, it's ours to do with what we will... there are no rules!
