Images of Canberra – Balloons, Reflections, Telstrayama, and a Yacht

johnboy 20 April 2009 8

KimF has sent in this beauty from a couple of years ago for our Images of Canberra series.

If only there was some way to shoe-horn the Parliament House flagpole into the shot we’d have a full house!

It’s a riff on Fujiyama, Japan’s Mt Fuji and particularly an allusion to the Japanese penchant for doing large series of paintings, all of them with Mt. Fuji somewhere in the composition.

Black Mountain Tower seems to have the same effect on Canberra photographers (me included), establishing any picture as being of local provenance.

I like that explanation JB. I’ll have to go through the pic collection later to see how many times the tower has subconciously crept into my Canberra based pics.

Why is Telstra Tower always referred to as Telstrayama on this site? What does this refer to?

Abslute scorcher! I doff my hat in appreciation and awe…
