Randwick, Glanmire

'Glanmire' is located along Alison Road, in the eastern suburb of Randwick. This heritage listed house was built in 1896 in the Victorian Boom architectural style. It is one of a pair and with 'Seabird' built in 1893, are now part of Marcellin College, a private high school.

  2. This place has an interesting mix of decoration, kind of like the architects were buying at a yard sale.

  3. My husband, an old Sydney lad, went to Sydney Boys High and Sydney University. This is his part of the world :). I too love the Victorian architecture.

  6. I have been looking at your blog for awhile now and love the photos that you post. I was wondering how you get shots which don't seem to have lots of peripheral things eg people in them. Do you have a specific time of day when you take your photos or are you very patient and wait for that right moment? I am only just starting out on doing a blog so any advice would be welcome.

    1. Kim, I purposely take the photos when there aren't many people around. I have to be very patient and do wait around for quite a while for the right moment. The day and time of day makes a difference. Some places are quiet on weekdays and others on weekends. Some are quiet early in the morning and others in the afternoon. Sometimes it takes a few visits to work out the best time.
