Canon SX50HS
4. Canon SX50HS  (December 2012)
When I accidentally discovered a camera with a 50 x Zoom, I acted on impulse and treated myself to the luxury of a new camera. It is always nice to have new "toys" to play with, and this album contains a variety of the "first shots", starting with images taken in my backyard. Then I took it up to Kings Park at noon on a day of gusty winds, not ideal conditions, but the only time I had available and I was pleased with the results obtained while I am experimenting with it. Camera was hand-held for all shots.

HMB Endeavour
6. HMB Endeavour  (20 October 2011)
The magnificent replica of Captain James Cook's ship, HMB Endeavour, returned home to Fremantle to promote the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships during her voyage of circumnavigation of Australia. The ship is built to the exact specifications of Captain James Cook's original which sailed on Australian waters 230 years ago, and will provide dramatic contrast to the modern fibre glass and carbon fibre Olympic class boats of the current Sailing World Championships. The Australian Frigate HMAS Darwin was also at Fremantle Wharf that day.

Birds in Queens Gardens
7. Birds in Queens Gardens  (May 2011)
The original site of Queens Gardens was used by colonists for duck hunting and horse racing. However it was soon discovered that the clay deposits on the site were suitable for brick making. By the mid 1800's the site had become a brickworks where the clay was mined and then used for the production of bricks. Around the 1890's brick extraction became difficult and the pits and kilns were abandoned. In 1894 a decision was made to have the abandoned reserve developed into public gardens. The brick kilns were removed and the clay pits were transformed into the beautiful ponds you see today.  The site was renamed East Perth Park and then changed once more to Queens Gardens in honour of Queen Victoria. Today the gardens attract an abundance of bird life such as Black Swans and other local Water Birds.

City Outback Adventure
10. City Outback Adventure  (14 July 2010)
The Outback came to the City when Syd “The Stockman” Davey brought his variety show to the heart of Perth to give the urban children an understanding of life in the outback. This variety show uses real horses, sheep, and sheepdogs for demonstrations, together with songs, poetry and colloquial expressions as Syd teaches about the outback and our bush heritage. An entertaining show for all the family.
