“I Love That This Quiet, Natural Setting Is so Close to the Heart of the City”

This photo was taken on a lovely sunny morning when my Dad and I went for a walk to see the John Oldham Park in the city. It had been a couple of years since I had last visited this park. I love that this quiet, natural setting is so close to the heart of the city. It’s so unexpected. There were so many birds nesting around the park that day, you could look up and see dozens of them sitting high amongst the treetops. It was an incredible sight.

I remember walking along the Langley Park Foreshore on the way to the park, admiring the palm trees and the cityscape. I stopped to take a few quick snaps, including this one. I love how this image captures the relaxed, laid-back atmosphere of Perth. It makes me feel so grateful to live in such a beautiful city with so many things to see and do.
