Lovely and cool for walkies today but a crap day for photos. Way too dark. Just as well I had a few more blue sky photos squirreled away. These ones were taken a couple of streets apart and perhaps five hundred yards from Gosford Hospital.
Some nice profiles in St. George Street. Couldn't get a decent shot of the fronts of these houses due to the trees.
That's Presidents Hill in the background.
Nice profiles going up the hill in the direction of the hospital.
It looks like a quiet street from this angle but you can't see the public carpark that is the other side of the road. Not residents' cars I think but peeps who didn't get a park in the multi-storey carpark next to the train station.
Pleasant old bungalow on Kendall Street Gosford.
The roof isn't distinctive as is common in the Federation Bungalow (circa 1890 - c.1915) and Inter War California Bungalow (c. 1915 - c. 1940) styles. Could be a 1915 - 1940 renovation of an older house.
Boarded up house in Kendall Street Gosford, near the hospital. I'll go back on a month or three and see if it's been demolished and a thingo of units bunged up in its place.
Mynah bird taking flight from a flowering vine in St. George Street Gosford.
Mynahs are curious buggers. Put something out in the backyard and they'll all come and have a look at it. They're also rather fond of pulling all the pegs off your washing so it falls on the ground. They're an exotic species and come from eastern Asia.
Plants and animals in Australia are divided into exotic and native. Exotics are introduced species brought in by white settlers in colonial times (1788-1901) or later. The most infamous introduced species is the humble rabbit. It eats native species out of house and home.
Worser and worser
We're not in a one in one hundred year drought after all. It's a one in one thousand years.
