A Bit of Perth


Sculpture By the Sea at Cottesloe is an annual event and brings made and shiny things to a sometimes bemused audience.

Here is “Goshu” by Michael Le Grand from New South Wales with “Fortus Ovum” by Peter Graham and Cindy Blakeslee in the background.

More over the next few days.

Today, when events in Japan mean that we are all acutely aware of the impermanence of the earth, I have chosen two trees which have been growing for around 170 years.

On what was then Marmaduke Hutton’s Peninsular Farm, these trees were planted around 1840.

The Pear tree in the background appears to have stopped producing fruit while the Pomegranate in the centre is obviously still producing prolifically.

Leaving Hyde Park behind I moved closer to home.

The Maylands Peninsula was home to one of the earliest farms in Perth.

Before then, this would have been a regular occurrence in this fertile corner of the Swan River.

And the rest of the family left its ghostly presence behind.

Time to leave Hyde Park and what better way than to see two more artists enjoying this delightful spot.

The children’s water playground in Hyde Park has become a dry and unwelcoming area.

Still colourful, it is no where near as attractive as when water is flowing over it.
