QVB (Queen Victoria Building) George Street Sydney

QVB.JPG

Used to be fruit markets now boutique shopping centre

Photo taken in winter

HMM, think I may have been there, indeed I have, I'm sure---there's an opal shop there, Oz, or used to be? And one great big feckoff opal on display in the front window.

Beautiful building inside as well. On two or three levels with a central atrium type thang? A bit like an elongated version of Frasers in Glasgow?

Mr T bought a shirt in a shop there and still wears it to this day. Not every day, obviously. :lol:

SS Grate Britten is indeed in Brissle, but of course I didn't see it this time. Going back again in spring.

I've got 368 more pics towork through yet, will keep me busy if it rains. !

Oh bugger, more hills to trudge !

Off to Amsterdam in 2 weeks, so I will have to make a list of what not to miss...... the bridge for a start !

We'll look forward to some canal snaps, LG.

Different country: Some Gondalas in Venice. gondolarefect-2737.jpg

I've never been to Bristol

passed it heading down to Cornwall yet never stopped.

Heard that it is indeed a very pleasant city

with plenty to do and places to shop.

It pioneered the great adventurers to visit the land beyond

and to take with them the whores the rogues and the vagabond.

Manys a fine person has been born in Bristol town.

There's always an exception and that is... Derren Brown. :(

I am quite keen to take up photography but I am not really sure where to start.

Would any of our happy snappers be willing to post how they got started? What kind of equipment they started out with? What kind of things helped them along the way.... courses, books, publications etc?

HH is right. Get a point and click camera and start to take pictures. It's that easy. Enjoy taking some images and see where it takes you.

Tere are many bargains to be had but I have had fujifilm and Panasonic Lumix point and shoot camera, excellent kit and they make great images.

Get ye to Argos. PM me when you need some photgraphic software.

Thanks LG,
