The stand out images from today’s walk around Acton Peninsula have as their theme the choice of perspective.
I knelt down a little more often than is usual to find a different viewpoint. I noted the dramatically different images I got when I changed where I stood. And I abandoned the …Read More Walk Number 5a – Acton Peninsula
. The longest of my weekend walks yet. Progress. This walk took in more of Canberra’s infrastructure, accompanied by a glimpse from afar of the old world as symbolised by the Governor-General’s residence.

This weekend’s walk with my camera was pre-planned. I’d booked my spot on the tour a month ago.
Mt Stromlo holds site tours every few months and they are well worth attending. They are free. There’s more standing than walking, but you get to see inside buildings normally closed to visitors. The guide was great.
The 2003 fires destroyed …Read More Mt Stromlo Observatory
