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!

Bowled Over in Beecroft

From origins in Ancient Egypt to Beecroft Bowling Club, this game is now more popular in Australia than anywhere else in the world.


  1. Fantastic photos - live in the area and you have captured its feel really well. Love the mix of black and white and colour.

  2. I'm happy with how things have started, let's hope the other suburbs are just as photogenic... in their own unique way of course! :)

  3. Improvements are subtle but better, the white boarder looks great. The photos are great too. I love the bulbs verses (is that a word) blossom.

  4. LOL!!! It would be a word if it was spelt correctly Max ;)

    as compared to or as one of two choices; in contrast with: traveling by plane versus traveling by train. Abbreviation: v., vs.

    Please note... not a verb! hehe ;)

  5. Beautiful photos, I really like the coffee time shots.
    I'm a friend of Max,visiting from her facebook link. I was going to follow you but can't seem to at the moment. Will try again later.
