Queensland December

My neighbourhood, 6.43pm, facing east.

The same street, 6.43pm, facing west.

I took these pictures on the way home from my church's Christmas carols tonight. My feet were in the same spot for each picture; I just turned in a different direction. To me, these pictures sum up the changeable nature of Australia, and especially Queensland, at Christmas time.

Samantha R -- I consider that a real compliment, seeing as you are a beautiful photographer with way more experience than me! Mm, yes, I think Pride & Prejudice is probably a little in front of Sense & Sensibility in the favourites stakes -- but only just.

Rebecca -- and to you! Although it's a rainy Sunday here and not a sunny one, so please choose your desired wish: rainy or sunny (and enjoy!).

Katie -- oh, thank you! (For some reason I can't seem to enable the photo commenting option at my picture tumblr, but I'll keep trying.)


  1. Fantastic! I think I could probably take a similar photo in Melbourne these days. For every sunny patch of sky, there's an ominous stormcloud lurking in the background.

    I just love the colours in the sky, though. Even the stormy sky has a beautiful purply hue to it.

  2. Ooh, pretty and quite different; those two views are!
    Thank you for the sweet compliment! :)
    You really do have an eye too!

  3. So spectacular! Looking forward to seeing you and the sky all in the same place. That poem is beautiful.

  4. Danielle, I absolutely LOVE your poem!!! Apart from the fact that I'm utterly jealous of your awesomeness, I love your word choices and the beauty the whole peom creates.

  5. Wow that's so groovy!
    Ah well, I stand corrected. The weather is so changeable in this country!
    Enjoy your week, whatever the temperature or precipitation (or lack thereof) may be :-)

  6. We certainly live in a land of extremes! Love your poem.
