A little bark

With a bit of time on my hands recently, I have been sorting through some of the thousands of photographs that I have stored on various hard drives scattered around the place.  It started out as an attempt to clean up some space on the laptop and ended up being a bit of a nostalgia-fest as I discovered folders of pictures that I have not looked at for years and enough pictures to keep me busy on Throwback Thursdays for a few decades.

In the folder helpfully labeled “Australia” I came across a set of pictures that I had forgotten about, but which took me back to one of my first walks after I arrived in Sydney.  It had been a warm, humid and rainy day in February and I was staying with a friend for a month whilst searching for an apartment of my own (Thanks KW!).  The rain looked like it was done for the day, so I decided to take the short walk up to Centennial Park, one of the largest parks in the city and took my camera with me.

One of the things that caught my attention was the difference of the trees – I have talked about this before – and I took a huge number of pictures of trees from all angles and in all kinds of light as the clouds scudded across the sun and the showers drenched both them and me.  I also took a whole series of pictures of bark on the trees, so very different to anything that I had seen before.  Helpfully I had collected and edited a number of these pictures – why, I am not sure now.  But, having edited pictures ready to share and following a kind of “Wordless Wednesday” thought process, here are some of the edited pictures of bark from that day.

Enjoy and open a window to get the scent of woodlands and wet earth as you view.
