According to my editorial calendar, it’s “Take a Walk in the Park Day”. But then it’s also Easter weekend which means lots of shops in town are closed and many people have gone away for the weekend so rather than the standard park photos, the Fashion Mister and I used this quiet time in good old Ballarat to head to Sturt Street and get some photos.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Ballarat, it’s an old gold mining town. Very wealthy during Victorian times and
really EXTREMELY proud of its heritage which means they have preserved a lot of the older Victorian buildings. Something else they have preserved is Sturt Street which is the wide, main street through the center of the city. And in the middle of the big wide street is a bit of a green area with statues, gazebos and any number of historical spots.
Today’s photos were all taken around the Titanic Bandstand.
Tomorrow there will be more photos of my look. Today as take a walk in the park day is about the plants.
I do love the history in Ballarat and the Victorian architecture. It provides a lot of great spots for photo shoots which I am trying to use more by getting out and around town for photos. Back in the mid-1800s quite a few very large gold nuggets were found in and around Ballarat and just within the last month another large one has been found…if only I had found it in my back yard!
So on this my almost take a walk in the park day, I am promising to share more around Ballarat with all of you. Why? Because it is where I live and I rather like it!!
