A flame for Aline.....

Virginia at Paris Through My Lens you were spot on, it was a flash mob. Such fun and for a wonderful cause. I've chosen this link to show you because it explains what it was all about while at the same time giving you a chance to see a little more of Perth and meet Lisa Scaffidi, Perth's first female Mayor and a jolly good sport!  Probably the biggest flash mob we've had to date in Perth, the mix from very young to 'of a certain age' was brilliant. I thought it was going to be really easy to spot Aimee with her flame coloured hair.. until half the mob came out wearing red caps pffft! If you're any good at playing 'Where's Wally' I'll give you a few clues, black cap, orange hair, red dress white collar, last shot the easiest (top right)! It was a real buzz to watch, maybe next time I'll join in with her, I was quite the dancer in my 'youth' haha! TGIF even if it does mean that Christmas is only days away, happy Friday, take care and stay safe..p.s. the squares you see here are the grid for the new Water Labyrinth unveiled a few weeks ago.....

  10. I have never experienced a flash mob. I saw a video of one in a Jerusalem mall and it was very emotional and powerful. Looks like a lot of fun, too. I think you should definitely join in next time. Then have a friend take pics and we'll all try to spot you. (P.S. Wear a white jacket and a bright red cap with a feather in it).

  18. Not a chance I'd spot her. My eyes are too old and it's getting too late our time for my brain to function properly. Still, it looks rather exciting.

  19. I do like the all dancing all singing flash mob concept. It brings such joy and surprise. I don't know of any flash mobs in Melbourne but would love to see one.

  20. That must have been fun to watch. I'm going to you tube to watch it. Thanks to Andrew.

  21. Life cannot be "lived" properly in a private enterprise shopping centre - so with all the wonderful spaces and spots and places around Perth you've been sharing, the flash mob was a great idea. I'm always a sucker for a flash mob, but what a great cause.

  22. I like those flash mobs very much, at you tube you can see a lot of them.

  23. I so miss Perth.
    And I so hate cancer.
    A great flash mob. And... didn´t know you have a female mayor. Well, she dances as good as I would ;-)
