I like how the umbrellas have popped up like mushrooms at the mall. The gray city scene is soft and lovely. :)

More great pics and nuggets Sylvia. It took me a long time to realize that my life is happening right now, now tomorrow, now. So enjoy it.

First shot is spectacular and yes a grey city scape looks gorgeous in it's own way. My favorite shopping centre is called Karrinyup, weird name hey Sylvia, it's got to mean something in Aboriginal haha!

Al said...

Nice shots, I love that first one with the mountains and the water. And GameStop is always worth visiting, I'd go to that mall!

George said...

The mountains are as spectacular as ever, but I really like your city photos, especially the last two.

Karen said...

Hi Sylvia! Sorry I haven't commented lately, life has been chaotic for me.

Love to see photos of your neck of the woods. The first one is definitely my favorite. Take care.

I love the mountains, so the first shot is my favorite. The city skyline capture is pretty too. The mall looks nice, I am sure the teenagers love it there. Have a great day and thanks for sharing.

This is Belgium said...

maybe it is because the Belgian skies are often grey that I like the second picture so much?

lotusleaf said...

True, a beautiful skyline looks beautiful in grey.

Arija said...

By the greenery and flowers, it must be summer, so why is that mom and her little boy dressed for something much colder? I wish you some real warmth. It takes a fair bit to thaw out our bones

Great to see some shots of the place you live and shop, Sylvia.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
