A P&O ship departs one evening. The photo turned out better than I thought it would.
Unless a bird accidentally drop laid a few eggs on the rooftop of the building next door, then someone in our building has been throwing eggs at the satellite dish. Guess party. Guess alcohol.
This is only a scale model of our iconic Flinders Street Station, set up as part of the Myer Christmas Window animated display.
The large telecommunications company Telstra is taking a very long time to renovate its huge shop. It has been closed for months, but this muriel adds something to the blankness of the wall.
The connection between a sheep and a chemist? Ewe tell me and we will both know.
While at times we would like to replace our lounge room furniture, we can never find a square coffee table as practical as this one. On the far side it is the same, a shelf and a drawer.
On this side is this stuffs.
And on the far window side is this stuffs. Well, can you imagine my surprise when I went to find a photo dvd and things has been reversed. DVDs and stuffs were on the window side and the burner stuffs were on the inside side. I was confused. Had the drawers been changed over or the whole unit turned around? Household Management was out but I later sought an explanation. A couple of days later actually as I forgot about it until the next time I opened the drawer. It seems the blank side that faces the chairs had a mark, so he turned the unit around and the mark now faces the tv, unseen by most.
Walking candy canes.
I think this would be sandstone, widely used in other Australian capital cities but not in Melbourne. We mostly use bluestone, a nice dark grey which suits the character of our city, a city where many people wear black. Go on, call us Bleak City if you will. We like it that way.
I thought one of these cars was my lift home, but they went straight past me.
I think these are all Asian students lining one of the walkways to the QV shopping centre. They look set to be there overnight or had been their overnight. Why?
AFL football grand final eve. We were in town with Little Jo. At Fed Square we saw this live tv broadcast happening. The red head is a high flyer in Geelong town and in media, Cameron Ling, someone who I would be instantly prepared to dislike, but he seems like a really nice bloke. They were also up on the large Fed Square screen.
Mother is down to feeding three stray cats, thank god. I hope they are non breeding. While feeding stray cats was my late step father's thing, Mother kept them on in his memory and it was very problematic at times. Mother has rejected the one cat that really wanted to be an indoors cat and tried every which way to become a pet, to no avail. The cats are spoilt with top quality cat food and cat milk, twice daily. Mother says it is the reason she gets out of bed. I bet Strayer has heard all that before. The cats have become tamer as time has gone on. There was a time when if any strange person visited, they would all run to under the house and I could never have taken this photo.
Over the past few years I have tried to understand the internet currency Bitcoin. It is not backed up by a real currency. It has no value at any bank, yet can be spent. Your computer can generate Bitcoin, so make yourself rich in a rather odd currency. Please don't try to explain it to me. Like soccer's off side rule and golf scoring, I just don't want to know.
North Road Beach was a place of my childhood, but the beach has gone. It is now car parking, a beach wall and a restaurant/cafe. We were in the middle of a pleasant brunch and then had to quickly move to sheltered outdoor seating when a shower of rain arrived.
It is a nice spot. The cafe is a little on the expensive side, but we are in the posh area of Brighton. The staff were good.
