This is the amazing Christmas Bush that flowers in Sydney every Christmas. The shrub can grow to quite a tall tree and the red blooms are just stunning. This tree is also rumoured to be a natural fly deterrent. Like with most of our Christmas and summer blooms you need to catch them quick as unfortunately they don’t last for long.
Even though we are heading toward Halloween, its beginning to feel a little like Christmas.

Como Baths. This was taken the same day the man fell/ slipped or jumped from the Como train Bridge (not pictured) and badly hurt his face, head, and abdomen. I had left when the incident occurred but i have seen an image of the man, still in the water, awaiting for paramedics to remove him safely. He has people in the water holding him up, a rather disturbing sight….non the less, people will still climb and jump from that bridge. Some have become paraplegic, and being in the Georges there could be anything floating down stream, anyway lets hope we don’t see any fatalities here.
This is a copy of a painting that i did a few years back, The Pioneer by Frederick McCubben. I remember i didn’t nail it, so i decided not to share it. Anyway i went to a considerable amount of trouble so here it is. I could easily go back and re-edit it now, but it is an okay representation. I would do it differently today.
I took these images at Tom Ugly marina the other day, not knowing that the next day, the wharf would be knocked down. I think this wharf is around 100 years old, and the end of it has been removed to make way for a new wharf. It will all be gone shortly.
