In the north of Sydney lays leafy Galston, and Fagan Park, Galston is a 55 hectare park with 10 themed gardens, including this a lily pond with a Japanese Bridge.

Orientalism was a popular movement in art and music in 19c Europe, as we see in Monet's paintings of his lily pond with Japanese Bridge.

Kimberley Series

I travel to the Kimberleys in far North West Australia at least once a year.

My experiences in Eagle Patrol at 1st Pendle Hill Boy Scouts stand me in good stead as I strap on my Bowie knife (or a Swiss army Knife) and go in search of wild artistic beauty.
