The Big Blue Head!

 The Japanese say you have three faces, the first face you show the world, the second face you show your closest friends and family, the third face, the truest, you never show anyone..  

I have passed and looked at this many face-faceted :) three metre high sculpture sitting under the tall eucalyptus trees on the corner of Loftus and Vincent St. so often without stopping. When we passed there a few days ago and I saw that he is now sporting a pretty fancy crocheted beanie and scarf I felt it was a sign that this was the time! 'Beseech' aka the big blue head, was created by Ken Sealy for the Town of Vincent. The artist's statement 'Beseech watches and waits, activating the space by creating tension through expectation and anticipation.' The BBH might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I enjoy seeing him when driving by. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe...

Special delivery!

Just around the corner from last weeks fabulous mural and most appropriately painted on the Subiaco Post Office during the Paint Subi Project by Dominican born American artist Evoca1. The mural depicting 'a young postal worker delivering parcels alongside a black swan' has a distinctly WA feel to it. Loved the whimsical touch of paper planes flying alongside too :) Subi just got a much needed boost! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

Sunrise, sunset.. and Christmas!

Inevitable! I turn my back for a minute and the city goes all Christmassy :) Thankfully Aimee was there to capture some of the highlights. Instead of the usual Christmas parade this year the Christmas Lights Trail can be followed each night right up until 25th December. Here just a few of the photos Aimee captured on Friday night during the first night debut. Hoping to take our Sydney famille to see the lights when they arrive for Christmas. How was your weekend? Mine was super hectic.. but in a good way! Happy Monday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. merci beaucoup Aimee for allowing me to use your photos!

Swirling Surround..

This is a bit of a cheat reflection :) it's not in Perth.. yet! We were lucky enough to be in Sydney last month for Sculpture by the Sea on Bondi Beach. The sculpture here titled 'Swirling Surround' by NSW artist B. Jane Cowie looked amazing. I'm sure it will look equally fabulous reflecting under the hot blue sky during Sculpture by the Sea on Cottesloe Beach in February 2018. Hope you have a happy and colourful weekend, take care and stay safe...

It's all in the way you see it!

 I took this shot in Kings Square in the city about a month ago. When I looked it last night I noticed a few things. Although the window cleaner is giving me the thumbs up he doesn't look too happy about it.. the lad coming around the corner is surprised to see me there, the security guard in the background wants to but doesn't have the energy to come over and tell me that I shouldn't be taking pics here and if you look closely you will see the first buds of spring coming out on the tree. Meanwhile the person in the pink jacket is oblivious to the drama unfolding around him/her :) If you are desperate enough look hard enough you can find a story in every image oui! Thumbs up it's Friday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. If I made you smile my work is done :)

Animal behaviour..

Grrr! Only kidding.. even though it looks as if he's hogging the water bowl he was a gentle soul. After an early morning 6km walk along the coast road I probably looked as excited about my coffee as these two did about water, but hopefully not with my tongue hanging out quite so much :) The colours in the below shot are exactly as they were, no touch-ups, I feel incroyably lucky to live beside such a glorious coastline. Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe...

Always be yourself, unless you can be a unicorn, then always be a unicorn!

I bet there is not a little girl anywhere who doesn't love a pony, and when that pony transforms into a unicorn.. that's when the magic begins! My five year old great niece loves animals with a passion so it was inevitable that there would be four footed creatures of some sort along for the ride, or in this case giving the rides, at her birthday party in the park.. and naturally a multi-coloured tutu is the perfect unicorn riding gear :)

Some unicorn horns are perkier than others :) After the rides tiny hands were tentatively held out for the unicorns to snuffle up their carrot rewards! The young ladies from 'Ponies for any Occasion' were wonderful with the girls, what a fun job they have! Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..
