Sunday night in town


Sunday night we headed into town for a burger..Hubby was back at work after two weeks off and even though a burger sounds a bit ordinary ..well they are no ordinary burgers..so we each had a Field of Dreams burger..Grll’d the place to be for awesome burgers..

 

We stopped by the highway so i could jump out and take a shot of this house i adore on top of the hill…

 

I love this house and partly destroyed barn it is not abandoned it has people who live there

And then town for that dinner..

A huge burger with a massive grilled field mushroom,basil pesto,roasted capsicum (bell pepper) tasty cheese,salad and herbed mayo..on a wholemeal blend roll.. a side serve of handcut chips and a spicy mayo dip…and a ginger beer..bliss!

After dinner we needed to walk off our meal..so we took a stroll around town..town is Bendigo 20minutes drive from home.

The centre of town has a lovely fountain..it’s in the middle of a busy intersection so at night it was a lot easier to get over to take some shots..still getting used to my new camera and in the dark i go to change dials which are now in different spots..go figure πŸ™‚ at night the fountain is lit up blue..well at least Sunday night it was..so this picture is quite odd but appealing i think..

Just across the road on the left of this picture and a nice stroll up the street we came across an instrument shop..i wonder if when the lights go out across town the instruments come to life…

Shiny and waiting for someone to play with with them

 

Further up the street is the Bendigo Art Gallery..i love how the architecture is so very much a reminder of our humble British beginnings.

Art Gallery is art itself

The trip home we stopped the car just a few minutes down the road so i could try and get the Church captured..the moon was full and in some shots i got it but i was really having a hard time as the church is massive and even with a wide angle i was fumbling all over the church grounds with poor old hubby carrying my tripod as i darted and dodged across the grounds..i like this shot as it is a little left of centre and an odd perspective…

I hope you all have a super week and i am trying very hard to catch up folks..snails pace me!

    And to think back when I was a meat eater I was happy with Ketchup (or is it Catsup in your language?). You certainly have fancy burgers!

  8. Fabulous photos! I’m having a tough time trying to pick a favorite so I won’t! The food looks and sounds delicious; I’m lovin’ that blue-lit fountain; I want that violin in the window; I love that old architecture of the gallery; and that church all lit up at night is gorgeous. So there! πŸ˜€ It was a wonderful night on the town!

  9. A burger is a wonderful treat and we go once in a while for one as we can not eat them to often with hubbys diabetes. The fountain in so beautiful and I could sit of hours and just watch the water. So hypnotizing.
