City Sun

The girls and I headed out into the city for lunch today.  It's always on our list of favourite things to do on the holidays.  And since I love taking happy snaps I brought the camera along with me.  Miss 12 thought it was a little absurd that both myself and Miss 8 were taking photos since we aren't tourists.  I like the idea of having a bit of fun playing tourist in my own town, seeing things a little differently each time. Here are a few photos I took when we went for a walk before and through the Botanical Gardens.
Do you like taking photos even in your home town?

  3. Lovely photos Catherine. I take my camera with me a lot these days - I used to feel a bit funny about snapping away in 'every day places' but now I don't.

  7. I love bringing my camera with me when I'm out and about. Because I have an Irish accent I get away with looking like a tourist! Who cares as long as the end result is some great images to keep the memories of the day alive!

  12. Beautiful photos as always. I love the fountain photo! I have a folder with hundreds of flower photos and sky photos ;-) Last weekend we took our boat out on the river and I took photos of the water and big cargo boats and of course our little girls enjoying time in the sun with their daddy. Sometimes taking photos of familiar places and situations heightens my feelings of gratitude. xx

  13. I do love to take photos around my little town. I love it's country beauty and the old weatherboard houses and trimmed hedges. Thank you for showing us around a small part of your home town, the pics are beautiful.

  14. I do, I take snap shots of every interesting bit. There are little details in this city that are worth a picture, even if I look like a tourist (we have so many, one more will not make any difference!)
