Sydney Hyde Park

These photos were taken in Sydney Hyde Park a few weeks ago. It’s a very green place and a lovely place to go to for a walk and/or people watching.

This guy making huge bubbles is a hit with kids. See next photo.

The surface is just beautiful…

I pity this poor birdie, which has to live with the huge tag. This poor guy was the only one amongst the ibis with a number!

It does seem the tag would bother the poor bird. Love that first shot with the reflection and all. :0)

That is a majestic War Memorial.
We have swans where I live with big yellow tags. Looks a bit unsightly, but I doubt they even notice.

It's so nice to know you are out in the warm sunshine shooting such great shots, (the war memorial photo is wonderful--and that poor bird). Sydney looks like a lovely city to roam around and take in the sights.

The reflection you captured of the War Memorial is excellent. Have a happy new year Evelyn.
