street moments




Greetings again! It's quite surreal to realise I've been back now for almost a month! Coming back to Earth has been a bit tricky and I'm still wading through a heck lot of photos and trying to get my head into Sydney and this topsy turvy spring weather and work and things. Still, there is something lovely about extending the trip feeling for as long as possible....

I was a bit like Alice in Londonland during our trip. I couldn't see enough. Everything was fascinating and magical: from misspelt, ardent graffiti to abandoned street cakes to little folk, spotted at the vibrant and loud Columbia flower market. I loved hearing the flower sellers there yelling out prices to the passing crowd, or in one vendors case giving good weather advice: 'Don't be a wally, grab a brolly, two pounds a bargain!'


There's something to be said for really looking at a place and retaining that sense of childlike wonder about the little details. Looking up and down brings into view a whole new world. I'm hoping to keep my travel eyes in place a bit longer and re-discover some of the little wonders of Sydney too.

Next up the promised food and markets!

Hello Georgia, lovely photos and thoughts as always. Love the dog graffiti, that little saying always makes me smile :)

I agree, being a tourist in our own city and country is an important goal to maintain. I took a photo of the "size of the dog" print too! And the shadows trick on the last one is awesome! Extend the trip as long as you like - you know I'm very good at doing that on my blog. ;) And it really does stretch out the joy and reliving of the moments! xx
