I was initially going to take some shots of the misty, winding paths in Fitzroy Gardens, but then this gentleman took time out from his dog walk to check his text messages so I thought what the hey; peace, quiet, tranquillity, mist, two dogs watching me to make sure that I wasn't up to anything or just in case I had some food (because this has been a long walk and we're really hungry, so do you happen to HAVE any food Mr. Camera Man?), and a tree trunk like an elephant's leg. It certainly wasn't going to be the WORST shot that I've ever taken. (Which ain't saying much.)
Fitzroy Gardens (named after Sir Charles Fitzroy, governor of NSW (1846 to 1851) and Governor General of all of the colonies (1851 to 1855), were founded in 1848. It makes for a sizeable (26.1 hectares) green, open space near the heart of the city.
The wrappings that you can see around some of the trees are there to protect the bark from some of the park's critters which are getting a bit feral.
