A black Jag, clamped. This normally happens when fines are unpaid. The Sheriff drives around with electronic number plate monitoring equipment and bang, they are easily picked up. If you owe for lots of fines, Prahran car park is not the place to park as the Sheriff is often there and they usually pick up their lunch at Pran Central too.The Sheriff is not part of the police, but operates under the Department of Justice.
A fine building on the corner of Chapel and Chatham Streets, Prahran. Whatever business opens there, never seems to last the distance though. Rents in Chapel Street are very high and there are many empty shops.
Further along Chatham Street, a large building or two was demolished and something larger is going up. You probably won't be able to see these chimneys from this angle once it is built. Note there is one chimney missing. Spoilt.
St Kilda Junction is where about five roads meet, so as you can imagine, it is a very busy intersection. Right on the triangle formed by the Junction of city bound St Kilda Road and Barkly Street is this ugly little building. I guess it is an electric substation. They used to design them so nicely in the early to mid twentieth century.
A fine house on the corner of Williams Road and Clarke Street, Prahran.
The car back ledge is decorated with fake flowers. Beats small fluffy toys.
A new type of shopping trolley, with a bracket for your water bottle.
A whimsical little piece of street art, soon to disappear behind a tall building.
Bernard's Magic Shop, Elizabeth Street, Melbourne. I thought this was a bit of history, but apparently not. The shop is there, on the first floor.
Was it last Saturday when we had a decent fog? I woke and looked out the window from my bed and I thought, oh, another overcast day. It wasn't until I stood up that I realised it was grey all the way to the ground. Media began to bang on about a pea souper, which it certainly is not. A pea souper is when you can't see a metre in front of you. Sadly, a fine day did not really eventuate, with the fog hanging around for most of the day, albeit thinner.
