for sale! So if you're in the market to buy a 'heritage listed' hotel in a prime position, it sits on the corner of South Terrace, known as the 'cappuccino strip', and High Street so it couldn't possibly be in a more customer friendly spot, this could be the one for you! Hopefully you'll have a little more luck than Mr Butler who thought it was a dead cert until the bank stepped in, the banner is still up, are you interested.....? p.s please read this link to help with the theme day for April http://cdpbthemeday.blogspot.com.au/.....

Swallows that were nesting happily atop a security box at the local shopping centre quite unconcerned about the traffic flow beneath them. This Laughing Dove has built her nest and hatched her eggs in a Ficus tree, planted in a pot outside my sister's back door. She has two highly excitable and yappy (very cute) little dogs that no doubt would have them for breakfast if they got half the chance, yet there they are, happily ensconced, and it's not the first time, they do it every year. Maybe the Dove's gentle demeanor hides a 'live on the edge' streak.....! Another Monday, another week, let's hope it's a good one.....p.s. there's something pretty on Billsdiving today....

The Fremantle Bakehouse one of the many cafes along the Cappuccino Strip on South Terrace, it was worth the trip for this alone! I do hope you experience something delicious in your day today.....!!

Numbat, a Western Australian marsupial that exists mainly on a diet of termites. This 25m mural read the story, it's amazing, was commissioned by the City of Fremantle who paid $15,000 to a Belgian born graffiti artist known only as ROA who, although not as well known as British street artist Bansky, has murals in cities like New York and Berlin. He painted the mural almost overnight and picked the Numbat as it's an endangered species, his point being that people who live in cities tend to forget about their environment! The technique that he uses for these massive murals is described in the above link, fascinating! Has anyone spotted a ROA in their city? I'm really missing the CDP forum, feel a little out of touch, am I the only one? Hope you have a fab weekend.....!

This is the latest video put out by the City of Perth to show Perth to the world, I really like it and hopefully you'll recognize some of the sights that I've shown on the blog. It's only a minute long, short but succinct, I think you might be impressed with what you see, if you click on the 'Watch on YouTube' it should play for you. I'm sure like most of you, I do most of my blogging at night, and sometimes it can get a wee bit late, last night my eyes refused to stay open after 8pm, I'll have to catch up today and see what I missed. Wonder what's up with the CDP site, has anyone heard? Have a fab Thursday.....

Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club during a training session. They're so dedicated and enthusiastic, you can't help get caught up in the positive vibes! So here's how it works..they take their 'target' a little off shore and throw him overboard with great gusto, turn the boat and scream towards the shore, whirl it around and head back out to where he's convincingly playing 'in trouble'..They haul him on board and would normally get him back to shore pronto and start with whatever procedures are necessary to revive him... however as this is a training session..

Swanbourne Beach is ours, I love the advice the site gives prospective visitors to this beach.. 'bring sunscreen, the Australian sun can burn your bum'!! I do hope these ladies have taken this advice and not just turned the other cheek.....!! I hope your new week begins well.....

Beaufort Street, I hadn't been along there for ages and was surprised to see that most of the antique shops had disappeared (most people buying IKEA these days I was told). I did however come across exactly what I was looking for in Central Antiques (if you look you'll see my chair in there). It's a Victorian balloon backed chair, made in oak, that just needed a little bit of tightening up (hmmm, there's line there I'm sure!) to make it as good as new. Anyway this is where I sit, in front of the window looking onto the front garden and prepare my blog, I was wondering where you do yours....!

On the other hand these colourful little Rainbow Lorikeets are a delight to see. They were squabbling over some of the figs that had fallen into the fork of the Morten Bay Fig tree.....
Plane trees, he was gorgeous! Hope you've enjoyed this walk and that wherever you are the weather allows you to have a good walk yourself this weekend. p.s. I did laugh last night when I realized I'd used a word that might have duel meaning..believe me if the bride had hiked her dress up to reveal a thong 'American' 'style, everyone in the park would have fallen over the edge into the lake hahahahaha! Have a great weekend.....

Hyde Park, mainly to see if I could get a few shots of the Black Swans, but not a one to be found! I did however on the way back to the car see a fantastic opportunity to 'shoot the shooter'. I don't think this was a real wedding, I got the feeling it was some sort of promo shoot. You'll see in this sequence of shots that he was so busy snapping that he didn't realize he was right on the edge of the drop into the lake. I was ready for THAT shot! As I passed, I was just in time to see the 'bride' hike up her beautiful dress and reveal that she was wearing....thongs! Comfy, but definitely not bridal!

Chen Man (check them out) who's style is described as 'bold and experimental'. Chen Man lived up to her reputation with these images inspired by 'love and water, yin and yang, pink and blue' created using MAC cosmetics. Man uses 'progressive digital post production techniques' to create her original and inspiring images...a perfect opportunity for moi to go crazy in 'picnik' before it disappears in April.....!
