Arthouse at the Gallery..

When visiting Sydney in October we went to the fabulous Art Gallery NSW. In the gallery shop when asked if I was a member I realized that if I had been a member of  Art Gallery WA I would have had reciprocal membership. As a regular visitor to our own art gallery it made no sense not to be a member.. can you see where I'm going with this :) So now I am and as an added bonus the new gallery Arthouse Cafe, opened in June this year, is excellent.. eggs poached to perfection! Above the huge mirror-ball hanging from the cafe ceiling shining down on fellow diners creating fragmented art! Happy weekend, take care and stay safe...

Boogie Woogie Christmas..

Well it's official.. Christmas really is just around the corner! Seen at my local shopping centre, three lovely young ladies singing Christmas carols boogie woogie style. Fun to listen to, hard to get a clear pic with those animated hand movements.. that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it :) We have fifteen young children in the family and as yet not much shopping done.. I'd better get my skates on! How about you, are you organized for the big day? Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

Arts décoratif.. Trinity Arcade.

It's definitely not the only way to pass through from Hay St to St Georges Terrace.. but as far as I'm concerned walking through Trinity Arcade is the best way.. three guesses why :) The arcade, history here, built in 1923 is so Art Deco it makes my head spin. Here last week looking ever so elegant in it's Christmas adornments. Although a mixture of styles the bold geometric lines fit my sense of minimalism to perfection! I purposely waited until the arcade was free of people distracting from the details:)  Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. I apologize if I've shown the arcade before but I never can resist taking more!

South and Northward Bound..

Years ago I remember many times driving up the motorway from England to Scotland stopping at service centres along the way for a coffee and sandwich to perk up the driver, that would be P, never me :) You may wonder why I'm showing a service centre sign here on the Kwinana Freeway heading south.. there is a replica centre on the opposite side of the freeway heading north.  As common as these facilities are overseas the BP Baldivis South and North centres are the first here in Perth. A stop to rest and refuel for the many trucks, tankers, tourists etc making the long haul down to the South West region of WA. 

No reason for the shot below except that I enjoyed catching two truckies parking their rig and heading into their very own 'trucker's lounge' :) Are these stop, rest and refuel centres quite commonplace on the long haul motorways in your part of the world? Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

All the fun of the fair..

There was a time many years ago that during the school holidays if you brought the kids into the city it was to the Art Gallery, the State Library or the Museum, which don't get me wrong, are all pretty cool things to do, I do them myself regularly :) Times have changed! Sometimes you just want to whizz around and scream out loud.. the children too :) The juxtaposition of stately heritage buildings and the gaudy colour and noise of the funfair rides in Forrest Place caught my eye! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

Smooching under the staircase!

The sign below states no stacking of waste cardboard under the staircase.. it says nothing about no smooching! From afar it's not clear what the smudge of black on the wall under the stairs in Wolf Lane is, on closer inspection..naturally :) it is a small but perfectly formed moment of passion! I look for and love discovering these new mini stencil art pieces when out and about, I'm sure this wasn't there the last time I walked in Wolf Lane, but then again..! Hope you had/are having a good weekend, mine was hectic. Big catch up today! Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..
  See more Monday Murals from around the world here...

That little blue box..

Walking along King Street in the city yesterday I was amused to see that Tiffany & Co had fashioned a Christmas wreath out of their trade mark petite blue box. Reflected in the window of Miu Miu. King St is best traversed at a brisk pace to avoid serious damage in the wallet area :) We had a few drops of summer rain yesterday.. in winter umbrellas go up at the the first drop, now, in summer with the heat and humidity people, myself included, tend not to bother, simply enjoying the cool feel of rain on skin! Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. the heritage architecture is what appeals to me :)
