Snapped out the car window when we were driving from Canberra to Queanbeyan late yesterday afternoon.
I’m still incapable of getting a decent shot of these parrots that spend a huge part of each day in our garden. They always seem to be against the sun, so their spectacular colours come out as grey rather than brilliant red and green.
In the garden in Canberra on Sunday morning. You don’t need Photoshop when the colours are naturally this bright!
Saturday’s sunset in Canberra.
Would have stayed longer at Walt & Burley this afternoon, but couldn’t take any more of the racist anti-Ukrainian and anti-Eastern European commentary from the miserable Anglos next to us. As if Ukraine isn’t being attacked by enough people at the moment… I told them off, stupid rude, racist, ignorant shits.
Don’t need people racially attacking us on the weekend!
I’m as guilty of anyone of romanticising Anglos, and forgetting how racist they are, though God knows I experienced enough of it in the years I lived in Britain, and do from my own family on the non-Ukrainian side here…
It’s a terrible shot, taken from the back of the car, but this is pretty much what it’s like driving around Australia’s capital city. Mountains and nature everywhere you go. This is in the middle of the southern suburbs! I couldn’t imagine not having nature everywhere.
