This is the Chatswood Catholic Parish Church, located quite close to the Chatswood Chase Shopping Centre. I have always admired this building and love taking photos of it at night.
Roseville has 4 churches that I know about – St Andrews, St. Barnabas, the Uniting Church and Luke’s Presbyterian (actually I discovered while writing this article there is a 5th called the New Church in West Roseville that I have never visited).
This is a rather imposing Catholic church with an attached primary school. Not many flowers on display here, only near the entrance.
Tuggeranong Uniting Church Erindale has four garden beds at the upper end of Comrie Street associated with the Erindale Neighbourhood Centre and the Erindale Neighbourhood Garden.
The garden is planted under a magnificent old Gum Tree in a raised garden bed with 2500 mixed tulip bulbs spaced throughout the garden. A similar number of violas, pansies and daisies have then been planted over the tulips in a keyboard pattern wrapping around the edge of the garden with some poppies forming an island in the middle around some bottle brushes.
The garden bed at Good Shepherd Community Church is a circular bed divided into eight wedges – four wedges of bulbs and four wedges of annuals. There were a couple of annuals which didn’t fit into the wedges so they were planted in front of the rock wall sign nearby.
This special shaped garden bed represents the Celtic Cross that sits high on the spire of the St Mary in the Valley Church.
This is the second of a series of articles showcasing pictures taken on the Voigtländer Nokton 40mm 1:1.2. These pictures were taken around where I live, in the quiet leafy residential suburb of Roseville, close to Chatswood. This article focuses on pseudo-macro photos of flowers with some street scenes.
This is the first of a series of articles showcasing pictures taken on the Voigtländer Nokton 40mm 1:1.2. These pictures were taken around the suburb of Chatswood in Sydney. Chatswood is a retail, transportation and commercial hub. In these photos, I have focused more on Chatswood as a leafy residential suburb.
