Scavenger Hunt Sunday...and a little Macro Delight

I've been wanting to join this challenge for a while now, so here goes...

1. Bokeh

studio waterstone


2. Process of Elimination
Went to the Royal Adelaide Show, first time for a long time. 
The Toyota Driving Team put on quite a show.
          SOOC shot
3. Flying High

4. Statues
Statue of Dame Roma Mitchell who was Governor South Australia from 1991 till 1996,
Chancellor of the University of Adelaide (1983-1990) and a judge on the Supreme Court (1965-1983)
Her statue sits in this beautiful setting on North Terrace, Adelaide.

5. Remember
Can't take the credit for this shot as it is me standing next to my Dad and sister with Mum at the back.
We are boarding the P&O Arcadia for our trip to Australia back in 1969.

Beautiful, beautiful macro and bokeh.
In your last photo...it made me remember pant suits and flared pants..and yes, I agree with Hannah...I think people did dress up more for special occasions.
