'Life of a Story'..



Nearly all of the shots I took yesterday were from under my umbrella, it was a beautiful day :) In Midland to take pics of this wonderful mural by Dutch artists Telmo and Miel. The two storey high mural titled 'Life of a Story' shows 'a young boy leaning over his grandfather, with whom he shares a special bond, while he reads him a story'. The artwork depicting 'the importance of storytelling as a way of passing down history and knowledge.' There is a huge amount of history attached to this area, will tell you more about that tomorrow. Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

Dolly's day out...



No rain over the weekend but it was chilly, not too chilly to take dolly out for a ride :) Look at dad in his shorts and tee shirt, bet he's got a jumper in the backpack, chasing a tot on a bike can warm you up. Was a sweet scenario, the dolly hanging on for dear live at the back.. what you can't see are the stuffed toys filling her basket in front. That's the end of the sunshine for a while, it's rain all the way for the next few days. Hope you had/are still having a good weekend, happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

Playing in puddles..



 I don't get all that many chances to take puddle reflection shots so I made the most of it when we were in the city on Monday, good thing I did because there have been mostly chilly blue skies since then. The shots here taken in the back lane of Chinatown. It's going to be a sunny weekend in Perth with the stormy weather returning next week.. how is your weekend shaping up? Happy Saturday, take care and stay safe..

A walk in the winter sun..



Chilly 6C at night, top of 17C in the day.. parfait! More or less the same give or take a few degrees for the next few days. So perfect for a stroll along the Swan River at Matilda Bay. Definitely jeans and jacket weather but not quite beanie and scarf cold.. soon though hopefully :) Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

Staying safe in the jungle..



It is the school holidays here in Australia and it was good to see that despite the virus there is still safe fun to be had in the city. The good thing about the Jungle Maze is that it can be controlled without spoiling the excitement. Sitting in Bocelli's Espresso in Forrest Place on Monday we watched as the children, young and old :) made their way into the maze, only a certain number allowed in at a time, the entry and exit spaced well apart. Life goes on almost as normal in Perth, with the correct distancing and a lot of hand washing. Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

China Town..



While in the city on Monday we had a walk over to China Town, a porthole glimpse above, on Roe Street in Northbridge where you will find all of the fabulous Asian food, Billy Lee's Chinese Restaurant below is a favourite. As you can see here China Town is alive with street art but not much going on through the day, it's in the evening from 5pm onward until the early morning hours that these lanes come alive with hungry diners. It has been ages since we have been but I believe because WA has handled the 'you know what' so well, things are starting to pick up regarding eating out, haven't tried it yet but any day now :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

Up to the top and down again... and again!



It's official.. my camera is in for repairs. Looks like I will be without it for at least four weeks. Aimee kindly lent me her camera yesterday which I took full advantage of by spending the morning in the city. Walking through Yagan Square I was mega impressed by the stamina of the super man above running up and down the steps, my guess is he is either police or fireman in training. I was pretty pleased with my own step-count and eight sets of stairs which I climbed at a dignified pace 😉 Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..
