Day 5 of #30daysofme

Day 5 – a picture of somewhere you’ve been to.

I must admit, it is difficult to choose just one photo.  It’s not that I have been to that many places, but I feel as though I have been to so many beautiful and amazing places.  Maybe because the world is full of beauty and wonder.

I was lucky enough to spend 8 weeks overseas quite a few years ago now, and I visited Vancouver, Toronto, New York and Honolulu.  I think Central Park was probably my favourite spot of all.  It’s so easy to forget that you are in the middle of a bustling city when you are sitting in the peace and tranquility of Central Park.  Hopefully I’ll get to go back there one day, and take my husband!

The photo that I will post is from a trip that we took together, probably our first real holiday together!  We went to Cairns for my aunty’s wedding and made a proper holiday of it, and did as much sightseeing and touring as we could possibly fit in!  This photo is from the day that we drove up to Port Douglas for a look.  It is so pretty up there and the best part is that we will be going back up there next year!  I really look forward to the drive between Cairns and Port Douglas again, even though it is a windy road.

See? I really was there!  Maybe we’ll be able to do an updated photo next year, to see what has changed.


Ron Mueck Exhibition

Seeing as it was the last day of the Ron Mueck Exhibition today, we figured that we should make an effort and get in there and see it.  I wish I’d realised just how popular it was going to be and thought to pre-purchase tickets on the net last night.  Now I know.

Admittedly, it took us longer to get in and get tickets than it did to see his whole exhibition but it was still worth it.  The detail of those sculptures was absolutely incredible and I’m so glad that we went to see it.  I’m not sure where it is going next but I highly recommend everyone to see this if you can.

Unfortunately I am not a very good photographer but I do like the way that this one turned out, even if it’s not 100% clear.  I like the way that the people in the background have blurred as they have moved.  To me it shows that life goes on around this pair of old women, while they talk.  Like time has slowed or stopped for them but has sped up for everyone else around them.  It’s difficult to get a sharp shot without a flash, I’ve discovered.  Maybe I should have used a tripod!

Did you go to the exhibition? What did you think?
