Timms Rd

Sunset over Timms Road Spring flowering tree Joshua studies from home most days (and we try our best not to interupt him...) but he is always great at taking a break from 5pm onwards (or whenever I call on him really) to play with Ignatius and help with our evening routine. I recently took the chance to ride my bike up the road, camera over my shoulder, to take in the last of the afternoon light. I like this picture of Timms Rd. It is an industrial road, busy with trucks and often littered in rubbish, and yet there is something beautiful about it here, in this light. I like these hills which are a distinctive feature of Brisbane, whose roads are a big, wiggly mess (but often quirky and endearing) compared to the neat, numbered avenues of somewhere like Vancouver. These lovely flowers are blooming across the city at present, perhaps Brisbane's version of cherry blossoms.


  1. I love that photo Sharolyn. It is a beautiful perspective.

  2. If we can see beauty in a road, even a road with litter and traffic, then there is still hope for us and the world.

    And yes, the way the road hugs the folds of the land is very beautiful.

    1. Yes, there is still hope! The beauty of creation is a good reminder isn't it Júlio?

  3. I can almost feel the heat! Love these photos, especially the sunset. xoxox

  4. Ha ha, you will feel the sticky heat up close and personal very soon. xo
