Spring Festival Perth.

There was a nippy wind blowing in the city when I took these shots.. that's spring for you, rain one day, windy the next with a bit of sunshine thrown in the mix. The city abounds with spring-time installations like the splendid native floral arrangement above in the QV1 Plaza. The last time I looked up at this view, with my heart skipping a beat, was when Aimee abseiled down to raise money for Princess Margaret Hospital, have a look.. how she stepped over the edge I'll never know 😱 It's lucky that the canopy of colourful kites below in Brookfield Place were well tethered, it was the perfect day for flying kites :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

Sakura (桜)

Don't let that blue sky fool you, it was super chilly yesterday, top temp 16C but felt like 11C with the wind. We took a detour on the way to the city to walk through the 🌸's before they were completely over for this year. S & R Orchard has extended the season, this being the last week. To be honest I think we were a few days too late for the fabulous photo opportunities but the blossoms that were holding on were a delight. The Japanese say that the cherry blossom is a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short. A reminder to live the best life we can. Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

'Goddess of Sky Burial'..

 I love it when we come across a fabulous new artwork unexpectedly. In Fez Cafe in Mount Lawley last week for breakfast the mural by multi-talented artist Fieldey was an incroyable sight to behold. The artist states 'not a fan of painting pretty things for the sake of being pretty I like to mix it with something a little bit darker. After mulling over it for a few days the medieval sport of falconry popped into my head along with the idea of her having a giant pet vulture. It’s funny, but the more you work on a concept the more associations tend to pop up and I was reminded of the practice of Tibetan Sky Burial. So in the end the concept is a kind of goddess of sky burial'. If you aren't sure what a Tibetan sky burial is about, I wasn't, you can read about it here.. so many fascinating customs around the world! Happy new week, take care and stay safe..

All of the colours.

This was one of those quick impulse shots while walking into the city. It was the red coat and black boots that caught my eye and only after downloading did I realize that I had all of the primary colours in one image. The blue, green and red chairs, yellow jacket on sitting man, purple on walking man the orange street post. Love that 💓 coat, mine is black.. think it's about time I coloured up a bit, might give the boots a miss :) Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe..

Blue makes me happy..

You might have guessed that already 💙 I took the reflections above on a hazy morning looking out over to the city from Kings Park. So many windows! Tall glass buildings have to be useful for something right :) What is your happy colour? Happy weekend, take care and stay safe..

There's always one!

How many times when you download your pics do you find someone staring straight at you 😲 I think scooter guy was covered up enough here to use the shot. The Old Telephone Exchange on Murray street has not changed one bit, check it out c1920's here, those old cars parked out front are too fabulous! Converted now to the Murray St branch of Fujitsu. Perth is a bit like a building site at the moment, everywhere you look there are cranes and construction, wondering if there will ever be a time when it's finished but guessing not.. that's progress! Thoughts go out to all in the path of Hurricane Florence, take care and stay safe..

Mo Espresso.. Coffee with Tom.

  Don't let the lack of people in this shot fool you, we had to loiter hang around for a while to get this prime spot in Mo Espresso in Trinity Arcade. As you know this is my favourite arcade in the city, last seen on the blog here all dressed up for 🎄 Why has taken me so long to take the time to sit and enjoy a delicious coffee here surrounded by fabulous Art Deco, charming baristas, Brazilian music.. and Tom. He does sport an impressive mo.. as do Einstein, the late Burt Reynolds and Freddy Mercury to name but a few of the other stool mustachio wearers, will catch them on the next round :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..
