I always wanted to take some of these pics…

and finally a chance presented itself

at King’s Cross Station in Sydney.

Clouds in a station.

Sydney Harbour Bridge also.

And how could a train as big as that was

come in an opening so small?


Wits End Weekly Prompt: Illusions

Travel Theme-Names




 Travel Theme.

December 2016 our camera club

flew to Sydney for the day.

One of the highlights of a visiting

Sydney is to visit King’s Cross.

Kings Cross has a reputation which

draws large crowds after  dark.


It seemed everyone on the excursion

knew about the Coca-Cola sign

at Kings Cross, except yours truly.

A good Irish sounding name for a hotel.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Fountains


My contribution for this week’s




Some local fountains to begin…

On the shore of Lake Wendouree, Ballarat.

Lake Wendouree was the site of all rowing events

at the 1956 Olympic Games.

Not sure if this is an operating fountain,

or, whether the previous photo

belongs is part of this fountain.


A wall of water at Manly, Sydney,

which was being enjoyed…


by this pair.


The King’s Cross Fountain.


I knew King’s Cross as a suburb of Sydney

and its reputation before my visit last year.

The fountain was not one of the things to

which I am referring.

According to

Frankie Davidson’s 1962 song Have You Ever Been to See King’s Cross

I have now seen the world. 😀
