Just a few random photos. These reflections only happens in early winter and again in late winter.
You would not believe the mayhem that this driver in the red car caused.
The driver wanted to turn right and should have been where the closer black car is waiting for the green arrow.
These always fascinate me when I see them flower. I am not sure if the plant dies after flowering.
While the boulevard looks wonderful when the trees are covered in fresh green leaves, I like it also in its winter bareness and I can see things that I can't when the trees are in leaf. Elms are on the outer edge and London Plane Trees in the centre.
The road is not too busy. I will just step around then shall I?
More mayhem down below caused by a so called professional truck driver being on the tram tracks waiting to turn right. He blocked trams in both directions and right turning motorists were not game to make the right turn as he did.
That kind of stupidity can lead to this, a long line of cars banked up waiting to turn right into Toorak Road. #Rule128 See the cars illegally queued across the intersection. There is large fine for this offence, but has anyone ever been fined? I think not.
Heating hastens. Bought closed Friday. Opening Friday night when photo was taken. Saturday looking really good. Sunday, just perfect. By Tuesday they will be cactus.
It is bit hard to see but the bloke leading in the pink jacket is wearing gold lame pants. The woman trailing is wearing a gold lame jacket. Just another working day in St Kilda Road.
R stays up later than I do and so as not to disturb me he uses headphones to listen to his tv in his bedroom. While our apartment adjoining walls are very thick, the internal room walls are not. He was finding his old set bought for $50 quite a number of years ago at Aldi on the Bellarine were increasingly uncomfortable, with the ear foam parts wearing out. I am not saying how much he paid for these at Norma Harvey's but they had been reduced by $90. The set up was easy and he is very happy.
His bedroom tv is getting on a bit and is not a smart tv. While he does have a digital recorder connected he thought it would be good to use the home wifi to watch whatever programme he wanted using the home wifi, so we bought a Google Chromecast for $50, which plugs into the power and an HDMI input on the tv. It was a bit of an impromptu purchase and I have should have done some research. Once set up all I could see was access to Stan, Netflix and Youtube. R wants our free to air tv and to watch what he wants when he wants without recording. I had downloaded the control app to his phone. I had to Guffle a bit and found out I had to download apps to his phone of each of our five free to air stations. It works quite well really, but much to R's disappointment, he cannot fast forward through commercial tv ads as he can with his digital recorder.
Saturday the Hong Kong students in Melbourne were revolting as we sat and drank coffee but nothing like Friday night when it really kicked off between Hong Kongese and Chinese mainland students and the cops were caught unawares. I am so fearful about what will happen in Hong Kong.
Clouds, blue sky, bright evening light. What can one say?
