Canberra Skies (Friday Skies)

Busy, busy, busy!
School production, photographs of 170 kids in costume to take and process, day trip to Canberra for a science award ceremony (I was not getting a prize!), kids to cuddle, stories to read and blog comments to reply too! Sorry that the replies are not up to date!


Anyway, here are some quick phone snaps of the sky over Parliament House in Canberra. Let’s hope some of the kids who were there today can keep on the science path and help us fix this little planet up!



































Parliement house has grass on the top of it - its basically an artificaial hill - and you can walk on top of it. It's one of the few times that MP's are in their proper place - under the people who elect them!



This last shot is looking up through the "flag pole" at the top of the hill. I think it was a bit more than my phone camera could cope with! But there you go!

You can find more (and if I’m honest, probably better skies) here at Friday Skies.

Canberra in July was COLD, hope it was warmer now :-) I visited Parliament House too, very interesting and with lots of great photo opportunities! Love the deep blue sky!

Kid cuddling and working on their school projects is the most important thing you can do! I marvel at all bloggers who are still working and raising kids and yet make time for beautiful posts. I don't think I'd have had the energy (if blogs had been invented back then when we barely had electricity ;>).....)

ah yes, it's that time of the term...countdown to term break, so heaps of stuff being crammed in before then

your first photo reminds me of Fed Square in Melbourne

you've inspired me to try and capture a skywatch photo on my phone...don't use the camera on it much, so it will be interesting to see what happens

I like your sense of humour where MP's are concerned..! Interesting building, glass roof and grass too. The shot of the flagpole reminds of some weird 4-legged insect.
Nice shots and reflections.

What a busy day! Lovely blue skies, like the angle of the flag pole one.
