An enduring 'affair'..



In a location like Sorrento Quay Boardwalk where success depends heavily on the weather, small businesses come and go. While in the warmer spring, autumn and hot summer months it's one of the top fav destinations for tourists and locals alike, small enterprises must be able to survive the quieter winter months, my own personal favourite time :) I've been popping into Art Affair to check out their mix of fine and eclectic art ever since the marina opened..I'd say that was a success story if ever there was one! Happy weekend.. I'm hoping for a little bit of quiet and a big catch up, see you later :) p.s. how cool is the 'metal art esky' below, I can just see a couple of bottles of Margaret River chardonnay resting in there!

  4. You have so much on offer to photograph. This look such a fun place.

    Oz family living in China are here for Christmas. That is going to cramp my already flagging blog posting. Time will be gobbled up for sure. Just had a look through your shots for the week...I don't know how you do it. Well done.

  8. I would like Art Affair very much. Such an eclectic collection! In the first shot, I really like the girl with the big hat although from this angle it looks like she's holding up her face with her left hand! :)

    The metal stuff in the second shot is what I grew up with and what our kids grew up with. That's why my key ring says "Antique Person."

  9. Oh, I remember the Coppertone ad. At least it was in colour. The esky is brill. I hope people know what an esky is?
