Canberra, our federal capital.

 

After being fascinated reading American blogging friend, Barbara’s post, about airport carpets, https://silverinthebarn.wordpress.com/2015/04/02/flying-carpets/ she inspired me to take some photos here in Australia. Melbourne airport is having renovations, so the carpet may be a temporary one. Boring compared to Barbara’s inventive post, even showing how their carpets inspired a tattoo as well as other goods. I hope you have time to read it, if you missed it.

Visiting Canberra is a delight in autumn with its many deciduous trees. We saw kangaroos at Yarralumla. I was not quick enough to get a close shot.

Tiny dots on the right are the kangaroos!

Alright, this is exactly what one shouldn't do, stick a tree in the centre of a photograph. I was trying to be quick to catch the kangaroos, that I didn't see the tree.
