image Newstead House – Circles and Curves

Newstead House, on the Brisbane River. A glorious historic house surrounded by lush gardens and river views. Spending the afternoon wandering around the grounds, I marvelled at the sights. Conscious of two photo themes this week, circles and curves for Cee’s challenge, and green for Travel Theme, I snapped away happily.

More Newstead House in Green here, and the magickal Alice in Wonderland here.
