Élégance française..

Aimee and I were both looking forward to seeing the FACCI (French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry) Bonjour Perth Fashion Show while at the French Festival on Saturday.. we were not disappointed. Beautiful dresses both elegant and flirty. What made me smile when I saw the pic above, can you see those horns in the background, Obelisk and Asterisk were enjoying the fashion also :)

Just as we were leaving I spotted the charming scene below.. after all, a French festival without a handsome, strolling accordionist is like wine without cheese oui! Hope you had /are having a fab weekend, take care and stay safe...

Mlle Rouge..

Ceci n'est pas une voiture c'est une joie de vivre!

After a bit of morning drama Aimee and I eventually arrived in Subiaco for the French Festival. We weren't exactly sure where Market Square Park was but luckily Mlle Rouge aka Red below was there to point us in the right direction :) Snippets of conversation are a delight. Australian lady to elderly French gentleman sporting a fabulous beret "excuse me did you buy your beret here?" Elderly French gentleman to lady a disdainful "Non!"..end of discussion! Made me smile :)

I didn't wear a beret but like many others I did wear le striped tee shirt :)

Asterix and Obelix never looked so good from behind :) I'll show you some of the gorgeous French fashions tomorrow. Hope you are having a good weekend, happy Sunday, take care and stay safe..

Summer is coming!

My title a tongue in cheek reference to Game of Thrones motto 'winter is coming' :) The official start of summer is still a month away.. temperatures of 31C yesterday and today just a hint of what is to come. Taken in Cottesloe overlooking the beach. What are you up to this weekend? I'm off to un festival français. To beret or not to beret.. that is the question :) Bon weekend, take care and stay safe..

Fading beauty..

Maybe decaying beauty would be more appropriate.. but not nearly as romantic :) In North Perth yesterday I knew as soon as I glimpsed the wrought iron fence above that I was hooked and would have to take a closer look. Many of the old brick homes c1900's in this old inner city suburb are being renovated but apart from a small section of scaffolding this old beauty looked pretty desolate. Loved the brick accents and how about those gorgeous windows, they have a touch of Art Deco about them don't you think? If I had a spare couple of million in the bank I would love to restore old treasures like this. Can't believe it's Friday again, one more week before I fly off to visit my Sydney famille, can't wait.. apart from the flying bit :) Take care and stay safe..

Matilda Bay.. easy on the eyes!

How do you fancy a stroll along the Swan River.. or a cuppa looking out across Matilda Bay, an excellent spot to spread out a picnic blanket and enjoy the view, I think you would enjoy it! You might catch a glimpse, or more, of the dolphins in yesterday's post post, you will definitely see the black swans from Tuesday's post. I can't imagine living anywhere else.. not even my second love Paris :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

Who are you calling bottlenose!

While walking close to the Swan River, you can see how close in the last shot, a bit further up along Mounts Bay Road from yesterdays post.. a splash and a flash caught our eye and there they were, so close they were almost touchable. There is a pod of at least 20 probably more bottlenose dolphins that live in the Swan River and I think almost all of them flashed by, it was a spectacular sight to see, not so easy to snap. The dolphin below seemed to slow down to look up at me before moving on.This stretch of the river close to the city and the Narrows Bridge is one of the best spots to see the dolphins and one of these days I'm going to find the time and patience to come down and sit with long lens and tripod at the ready :) dolphins leaping is a shot I would very much like to take! Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

All tucked in...

With time to spare before an appointment in Nedlands yesterday we stopped in at Matilda Bay to have coffee and a walk along the river. It was a cool, blustery day and the black swans, namesake of the Swan River, were huddled along the foreshore with heads tucked firmly under their wings, those long bendy necks are so handy! Pesky little duck in the shot below :) I know it doesn't look blustery in the last shot.. you will just have to take my word for it :) Will show you what we were lucky enough to spot a little further up the river tomorrow, can you guess? Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...
