The rules are simple:
To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
Ballast Point Park, Balmain was officially opened July 2009.
It's a park created out of an old Caltex refinery on one of the peninsulas
that juts out into Sydney Harbour.
The design reflects (and uses) it's Aboriginal history and it's working history
to create a beautiful park for walking, picnicking, playing, fishing,
watching the NYE fireworks and nature at play.
Over the years I have captured this park in various moods, including the Spring blooms from a couple of weeks ago.
Below is sunset on opening night July 2009.
A family gathering a few months later (note the new seedlings).
2 years later and the trees and shrubs have started to bulk up.
You can also see how they've used bits and pieces from the old refinery to make the walls.
And finally, 2 recent pics from August 2012 (below)
