The time has come..



For me to face my flying fears once again. We are off to Sydney and the Blue Mountains, super excited to see our Sydney famille.. it's just the flying bit 😱 I leave you with three different versions of a shot taken in the city on Saturday evening. The umbrellas adorning London Court as part of the winter festivities in the city. Above with just a leeetle tweak and below as it came out of the camera..


... and here reflecting the sate of my mind :) a mish-mash of panic three shots. Look after yourselves until I get back, see you on Saturday the 20th for Weekend Reflections. Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

Roll Up! Roll Up!



 There was only one sign up along St Georges Terrace to announce the arrival of the circus.. admittedly it was a pretty big sign above :) Walking through into Brookfield Place WOW! The show stopping circus projections on the heritage buildings, created by Electric Canvas were fantastic, just one of the many activities going on in the Winter Lights at Brookfield Place event in the city from 3-13th July. It was fun to sit inside and have dinner while watching the ooohs and aaahs of the young children as the circus scenes continually unfolded before them..


Aimee wasn't with us but I was absolutely certain that as a serious coulrophobic the sight below would have freaked her out 😱 I don't understand it but as a person with many many phobias I certainly wouldn't mock it :) Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

City in the rain..



The best thing about rainy evenings in the city are the reflections and.. the rain :) I got drenched twice yesterday, in the morning and here last night, guess what.. I didn't mind either time. I can't be the only one who loves walking in the rain, am I right? Above His Majesty's Theatre looking rather splendid in its evening lights. Below you can see it wasn't too bad when we first arrived in the city but by the time we left it was a mad dash for the car. If you are wondering why we were in the city on a wet winter's night.. will show you tomorrow :) Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe..

'Looking at the world upside down in order to see things right'..



'Sometimes you have to let life turn you upside down
so you can learn how to live right side up'..

Reflections in the glass panel above the walkway I was standing on to take umbrella shots. Love how the colours light up in the slate paving in Forrest Place when it rains. The colours in the umbrellas below in real time are a bit blown out, sometimes life is better in reflection :) Happy weekend, take care and stay safe..

Brollies up!



It was a fabulously rainy day in the city yesterday and although black brollies were in the majority, especially on St Georges Terrace, here on Murray Street colour and pattern prevailed. It's not often I get the opportunity to take umbrella shots so I made the most of it.. might be more tomorrow 😉 Happy Friday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. The sturdy Bunnings brolly, bottom left, next to its super flowery companion made me smile, the poppies were pretty too :)

Spanner in the works..



Plus a bicycle chain, a sprocket or two dozen, ball bearings and is that a.. chain saw? Pull the pic in and see how many pieces you can identify :)  From farming to working in construction to constructing art from scrap metal.. what an amazingly diverse journey for artist and sculptor Martin Jaine. We must have unknowingly been so close to his studio in Bassendean yesterday, if only I had realized at the time. An amazing sight.. more a piece of art to admire than a comfy bench to sit on :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

'Be the kind of person you want to meet'..



Yesterday was the perfect crisp but sunny winter's day to head out for lunch with my sisters. Over Board at Hillarys Boat Harbour, five minutes from home the perfect choice. The food delicious, the champagne for a birthday toast to our dear mum 💙, passed nine years ago but remembered every day, chilled to perfection, the views out to the harbour gorgeous. The inspiring quotes written on every available space, if you embiggen the pics below you'll see a few, were fun to read, my favourite by Eleanor Roosevelt  'A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water.' As much as I love the rain it is nice to have a couple of days like this in between :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

A day at the beach..



Another delightful mural by Perth contemporary artist Peter Ryan. You might remember that I now enjoy his work on my beach walks here. The new mural is adorning a wall in my local shopping centre Westfield Whitfords. Painted during the last school holidays the artist, working with ideas from children in the local community created a 'sea-riously' wide and wonderful beach scene. Love all the gorgeously whimsical details below but the rather rotund sunbathers made me smile big 😊 Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

Borealis blue..



  The July theme day colour for City Daily Photo bloggers is blue. We were in the city last night to catch the last showing of Borealis created by Swiss artist Dan Archer. Perth provided the clouds :) laser beams magicked the borealis lights over the sky in Forrest Place, the drizzling rain adding to the otherworldly experience. Just one of the many events in the city during Perth Winter Fest. It's not always that easy to capture the feel of an event like this in photos, you might like to see it on video by Skyperth here. Happy beginning of the new month, take care and stay safe..

The Bazaar..



Even in a shop that sells unique and sometimes bizarre, see below :) objects, Aimee is often the most exotic presence.. especially when wearing a cosmic galaxy sweater as she was yesterday 😉 Seriously, Bazaar Clothing at Hillarys Boat Harbour has some amazing clothes, bohemian style their specialty. I do like a bit of bohemian in my wardrobe :) Hope you are having a super weekend whether it be keeping cool or snuggling up, happy Sunday, take care and stay safe..

CoeXist..



If only we all could how lovely the world would be 💙 Couldn't resist a quick shot of the car above advocating all the right things for a happy life, peace, love and .. that illusive rainbow of colours that  I have been searching for in the skies this past week :) Also the perfect segue into wishing you a happy and peaceful weekend, take care and stay safe..

Chasing rainbows..



... and finding flower petals 🌸 Another day chasing that new winter header shot without luck but a trip to the city is never a waste of time, there's always something to see. Lunch in ENEX provided me not only with scrumpdiddlyumshious food, I know right :) but also a chance to experience the mechatronic flowers adorning the ceiling of the upstairs eatery. 'The brainchild of the Skunk Control team at Victoria University, the display consists of large mechatronic flower heads which open and close to display a vibrant internal ecosystem surrounded by colourful and delicate petals. Each flower features millions of vivid colours, influenced by our native flora and fauna'. Gorgeous aren't they, not a wasted trip at all. Happy Friday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. big catch up today 💛

A walk in the park encore..



Yesterday morning after visiting my sister in hospital, a stone's throw from Kings Park, we stopped by for a walk amidst the calming greenery and familiar views.. thought you might like to come along with me :) The storm that was forecast was building but only came in later in the day. Hoping to get some wintry shots tomorrow. Have been reading about the extreme temperatures in the northern hemisphere, it really is astonishing that there are still so many climate change disbelievers, what will it take I wonder! Happy Thursday, keep cool, take care and stay safe...  P.s. All pics taken with one lens, the new 12-200, so good not having to change lens all the time.
