Not 'little green men'.....!


It's not often that you look up from your coffee (there was cake also) to see a green man striding towards you.. my reflexes can't be all that bad, I had about four 'strides' to focus and click :) Ah! the weird and wonderful things you see in the city. Yesterday Aimee and I checked out the Christmas markets organized by Made on the Left, a not-for-profit organization formed in 2008 by independent designers to support Western Australian creative talent. Aimee made a bit of a dent in her Xmas shopping list, me.. not so much!
Come on, you know there has to be a tree..it's nearly Christmas..what was that.. did I hear a 'bah humbug' :))
Carillon City has Christmas all wrapped up....!
On the way home we got held up for ages, at least ten minutes :) by one of the many roadworks going on in Perth at the moment.....
  ... but it did give me time to snap this gorgeous red leafed tree, I have no idea what it is but it looked so pretty there on the side of the road.....
If you need a bit of TLC 'Guys Grooming' below is the place to go..that didn't sound right :) but you know what I mean! the reviews are all good.  Hope that you're having a super weekend, will catch up today. Take care.....

  2. Green is a Christmas color, but I think he needs a little darker shade of green to embody the Christmas spirit.

    It takes a bold and confident man to wear an outfit like that in public. But, then again, he is not showing his face.

    Maybe he just wants to show pick-pocketers that he has no pockets and nothing to steal.

  7. When you use a camera a lot, you get good enough to get into action and take a photo that many would miss. Have a good weekend!

  8. There's a good story there about the green man I bet. It's so odd to see people in shorts beside a Christmas tree.

  10. This looks like a lot of fun!

    I just saw a documentary on Perth on TV. Looks like a wonderful place to call home.

  11. We have those trees here but I don't know what they are either.

    "guys grooming below". What an extraordinary turn of phrase you come out with.

  18. There is always someone in the city wearing some strange outfit. I've never seen anything so strange though...I haven't started Christmas shopping yet!

  19. I've seen people in those one-color body suits at events here and don't quite get it. You have to have a pretty good physique to get away with it.

  20. Intriguing scenes, nice walk-a-bout, great weather and of course there was cake! ;)

  21. Your green guy is probably a tourist from Mars enjoying your nice weather. You have lots of nice photos today. I wish I could visit.

  22. Green Guy probably lost a bet with his pals who look to be laughing their heads off.

  23. Looks like you had a very active day while us desert dwellers were dealing with a winter storm that was producing a lot of rain. We mostly stayed in doors this weekend. I did have a dinner party to attend on Saturday. It was a Greek theme so I looked up a few Greek recipes to try out on the group. Turned out great.

  24. I can't imagine celebrating Christmas in the middle of summer. ;) Yeah, I know. You probably can't imagine a winter Christmas. ;))

  25. Those green men I have once seen here too, don't know what it is anymore, but must be rather hot to walk that way around. You are in a real Christmas mood thre already I see. Always strange to see Christmas in a warm country, while we are shivering here...

  26. Puts me in a holiday mood! I love the sign in that last photo, but had to smile a that (perfectly-focused) little green man and the sweet tree. Good luck making a dent in your list!

  27. The green-man is cool! Hahaha...
    It must be a lot of fun over there, right? :D
