Theme day.. Bicycle.. 'dreaming of the big surf'.



The only thing missing here is the surfboard that would normally be attached to this young surfer's bicycle, hair flying in the breeze as he gazed out to sea dreaming of the monster waves 277 kilometres down the coast at Margaret River, waves that had pro-surfers flying in from interstate and overseas, check them out, scary stuff.  Personally je préfère my cycling a bit more sedate, with the water where it should be.. on the horizon :) bonus bike bike stands in the bottom shot. Both not too old archive shots, the good news, I picked up my camera today for the first time since the accident, look forward to sharing. Happy new month, take care and stay safe..

Every 'dog' has it's day!



I'm working with archive shots here as I haven't picked up my camera since the accident two weeks ago.. thank you so much for all the love coming this way during this unbearably sad time, hugely appreciated. I'm hoping to get back to posting daily beginning with the CDP theme day on the 1st of August. In the meantime I've been keen to show you two murals by one of my favourite Perth artists Paul Deej who's talent you've seen here many times. The super cool mural above inspired by the 1992 American neo-noir black comedy Reservoir Dogs and below on the corner of Walcott & Learoyd St. in Mt. Lawley the Hollywood starlet Anne Shirley. There's a Deej mural in Fremantle that's high on my 'must capture' list! Hoping to catch up with what you've been up to over the next few nights.. take care and stay safe..

In memory..



Today we lay to rest a very special woman, a young mum taken from her family too soon by the  cruelest twist of fate.. wrong place, wrong time.. life can be tragically random. Although nothing can replace a mother's love know your children will be surrounded by family who love them dearly both here in the city and in the country. RIP Miranda..

An ode to my breakfast guests..



There was a dove
and a parrot
Who arrived together
to have it
A breakfast
 of seed
Shared peacefully
indeed
Was better than 
eating a carrot..    
Grace Forde.. with apologies :)

Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...p.s. if I made you smile, my work is done :)p.p.s. and tres important, Happy Bastille Day celebrations
mes amis français, enjoy...

'The Joker' by Vincent Fantauzzo..




I had seen photos of the mural depicting Perth born actor Heath Ledger as the Joker, his last role before his death in 2008, but actually seeing it took my breath away, it's a stunning piece of work in the foyer of The Backlot Perth (excellent link) an amazingly creative space. The portrait was painted by Vincent Fantauzzo  a family friend of the Ledgers.  I wouldn't be surprised if you already know the name Vincent Fantauzzo, remember the 30 portraits in 30 days series.. how is that even possible, incroyable! There is another fantastic mural just through those doors below to the right.. show you next week, if I can wait that long :) Happy Monday, take care and stay safe...

'Rapture' in Railway Lane..



I took the above shot of the colourful installation titled 'Rapture' by Sydney artist Niki Savvas in the evening a few weeks ago and the below shot during the day last weekend. Known for her visually dazzling installations, the ever changing light bouncing off the multi-colour coded bands of acrylic, reflecting in the glass buildings around and below it are a brilliant addition to the super cool art in 140William. What are you up to over the weekend? I hope to spend much time in the jungle garden, let's see how that works out :) Bon weekend, take care and stay safe..
