Things Australians don't say: Canberra is fun! Just half kidding. Canberra is the result of Sydney and Melbourne fighting it out to be the capital of Australia. The result is that nobody wins. Just kidding. Canberra's alright.
One of my projects this year was to build a photography portfolio, but I haven't picked up my camera for that purpose for a while. I did do one photo shoot with a friend, but everything else has caught up to me. I've been meaning to visit a canola field for a while now, so when we passed one on the way Canberra, I got super excited! I made plans with a friend to shoot in one in two weeks time, so I'm excited for that! The weather has been pretty fantastic these days. (And I'm the person who gets sick with the weather transition. Worst. It's been my fifth cold this year. I don't even know.)
Parliament House has been super chipper thanks to Mr Prime Minister. I'm not even going to start on what I think of Tony Abbott and his politics.
The reason I went to Canberra was to help one of my friends set up a calligraphy exhibition in Parliament House's hall. Everything was paid for so that was super nice.
And a trip to Canberra couldn't be made without buying cake from Dobinsons! I had the most glorious strawberry and banana custard tart.
