Sydney Turns Purple

The best thing about November in Sydney is the colour. 

Gorgeous purple flowers against deep blue skies. It is the end of spring. The days are getting warmer and there is a definite lift in mood as summer approaches.

Mostly the colour comes from the Jacaranda Tree's which line the streets of Sydney's North Shore and other suburbs. I have taken these photos around Chatswood and Lane Cove.

Also, flowering at this time are Agapanthus which border many front garden and fence here in our Northern suburbs.

One minor drawback is that it can get messy! Although for all of this beauty, I don't mind a bit of mess. Besides, there is usually a massive southerly at some point which blows it all away. That's Sydney for you!

Spring Splash - Lane Cove Swim Meet

Perfect spring weather. Not too hot or cold. Mostly sunny set the scene for this fun meet. 

Swimmers of all ages competed and when they weren't racing, they were hanging out together playing handball or doing handstands!

It is a perfect team building event.

What impressed me most though was the level of effort and participation by the parents. 

Cooking, marshaling, name it. This meet could not have achieved its success without these fabulous people.

The pace was set by the President, Louise Bain who was a ball of energy racing all over checking that everything and everyone were all going well and to plan.

And then there were the great swims. Not known to be a fast pool by any means, records were broken and PBs made none the less!

The younger swimmers enjoyed collecting their medals whilst the older swimmers were happy to use this as a good training exercise.

I had donated a prize which was luckily won by one of my best clients...I look forward to their family portrait session…
