Sydney reds, many plus one !

What is red in Sydney? The logos of the Sun Herald, Streets ice-cream, Opera Australia and the blood bank's Red Cross. The firemen's truck, the maple leaves in autumn and the row boats available for rent on Lane Cove river. Red again are several murals I found along my many walks around the city, and this ad for the monorail - gateway to Chinatown. Red and blue is the beautiful Crimson Rosella often seen in Sydney's suburbs...

Qu'est-ce qui est rouge à Sydney ? Les logos d'Opera Australia, du Sun Herald, des glaces Streets et la Croix Rouge de la banque du sang. Les camions de pompiers, les feuilles rouges des érables en automne, les barques qu'on peut louer sur Lane Cove River et quelques murs peints que j'ai trouvés au fil de mes pérégrinations... Rouge est la pub pour le monorail qui vous mènera à Chinatown, rouge et bleu est le magnifique Crimson Rosella (perruche de Pennant) qu'on voit souvent dans les quartiers résidentiels...
/ And as a bonus photo, red is this free spirit escaping from its cage...

Et en bonus, rouge est cet oiseau libre qui s'échappe de sa cage... Evidemment on pense à Pierre Perret : Ouvrez, ouvrez la cage aux oiseaux, Regardez-les s'envoler, c'est beau...

For a moment I thought my dates were off! It's a bright lead-in!

Squirrel said...

I just clicked over from your "free Tibet" comment and I get free spirit--it is wonderful I must say!

Coltrane_lives said...

Bonjour! First time commenting on your blog. BTW yours is an amazing and fun-filled site. This free spirit seems to be escaping from a net (the fencing) and the bird looks mighty determined. :-) As a segway, I guess it does echo the Dalai Lama's message. I've enjoyed your previous photos too and am amazed at the amount of flooding around the globe. We in the States...Texas and the midwestern states...have really gotten hit badly this year by precipitation. Cheers to you down under and hope you stay dry!

Et maintenant j'ai cette chanson qui me trotte dans la tête!

Kala said...

Oui ! On a presque l'impression qu'il va sortir de sa cage !

Peter said...

Oui, comm "hpy", je vais avoir "la cage" dans ma tête pour le reste de la journée!

Bien vu, avec l'oeil d'une vrai blogguese!

Lavenderlady said...

Beautiful! where did you find the information on the other participating links on the forum? I always get lost. I was in this morning looking away and could not find it. May I add, those birds are wonderful. what kind?

Lavenderlady said...

Opps, I went back and found it...the link to the bird. Very nice.

Philippe said...

Je rougis de plaisir devant cette mosaïque d'images! Mille mercis!

Fly Birdy, FLY!

Ben said...

Nice collage, Nathalie.
great collection of reds.

Kate said...

I'm back again; you threw me a bit by rearranging the site from yesterday. The collage, needless to say, is quite bright and colourful. I also like your avatar which fits into the theme quite beautifully!!

Gerald England said...

brilliant collage

Hi Nathalie,
Yours is the first from Australia that has been up so far (usually you all post way before me). I had to laugh when your page came up. Great minds apparently think alike, and I did the same thing you did. Just too many to chose from (I had 45 contenders and narrowed it down to 13). I love your composition and each image is wonderful in and of itself, giving a big red flavor of Sydney. Really nice "bonus" shot, too! Kudos!
-Kim

I love Streets!
By the way, in Asia, we call it Walls, but with the same heart logo :-)


Happy Theme Day Natalie!

Norman said...

I'm quite distraught, Nathalie, to find in your link that the mountain lory/crimson BREASTED rosella of my youth is now simply a crimson rosella. Worse still, those other two species have (in the eyes of the majority at least) become mere sub-species. Clearly old age hasn't himproved my grasp of birds as much as I'd have wished.

Chris & Deb said...

Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful Nathalie!
Your post is like a warm summer breeze!

Rauf said...

Oh beautiful red Nathalie, red is full of confidence too.

Emily Lin said...

Nice shots, Nathalie! Red red red everywhere! :)

Have a nice weekend! =))

Imparfait présent said...

Il y a aussi du vin australien rouge qui est bon. Et c'est un français de souche bourguignonne qui le dit.

slinger said...

I see lots of red, lots of nice ideas.

isabella said...

Super collage! There is such definition to each photo...simply striking!

Gail's Man said...

~tanty~ said...

Je croyais que les pompiers étaient jaunes en Australie ?

Ming_the_Merciless said...

I love the collage!! It's awesome!! Glad to see a new post on Sydney DP.

ruth said...

Parfait! And you saved the best for (almost) last: the leaves.

I told Alice too, please look at this post at Paris Deconstructed from last September:
