Along the South Perth foreshore..



Parking under the Narrows Bridge in South Perth yesterday afternoon, Aimee and I began our stroll along the foreshore. It was the last day, or so we thought, of the South Perth Fiesta, and there was something in particular that we were there to see. Along the way.. deckchairs set up for visitors to enjoy the city views..


Handsome man singing ballads...


Miam Miam a Bite of France.. the roving food vans preparing to begin cooking.


More deckchair views...


... and my view!  Whenever I come south of the river from now on I'm going to take a picture of this view because when the Elizabeth Quay project is eventually complete, this view will be changed dramatically. Oh yes.. the reason Aimee and I were here in the first place was to take some shots of an installation titled 'Intrude' by Sydney artist Amanda Parer, 7ft illuminated white rabbits, see what they look like here, what a fab shot that would have made with the cityscape in the background. Too late, it finished on Saturday night :) Ah well, c'est la vie! Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

  2. You do such a beautiful job of featuring your city and your favorite places to visit. It is always fun and educational to follow your blog. Wish I could visit beyond your blog!. Regarding Irish Wolfhounds on my post today (Sunday): I answered your question and later provided a link you might like to visit to learn more about them: http://dogtime.com/dog-breeds/irish-wolfhound

  3. Beautiful place. Too bad you missed the rabbits. The rabbits remind me of some of the ice sculptures in the arts show in Minneapolis St. Paul Winter Carnival.

  16. I had a similar experience today. I was headed to the Shemer Art Center because they were having an outdoor art sake. I had seen the booths being set up on Friday. Guess what, it was Saturday only. That doesn't even make any sense.

    Love that skyline view!
