From the car my eye had already composed this shot.. the old wooden pier, the tree, the misty city across the river, the isolation.. more than enough to entice me out. As I braved the weather to snap the wintry scene Percy pelican flew in and photo-bombed my shot! He wasn't the only one, landing atop the one lamppost as another brave soul walked into the scene and out onto the pier. What do you think.. did they enhance or detract from the image? Last two shots without intruders :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

I was sitting cozy warm in the car when I took these shots on Sunday, zipping down the window whenever any brave soul rode or blew past along the foreshore. There weren't many. A youngster struggling against the wind to keep up with dad and a couple, hands deep in pockets striding determinedly forward. Love the silhouettes. For tomorrow's shots I did get out of the car and brave the weather but I think it was worth it. The weather was more of the same today and I think likely for the rest of the week.. I'm happy :) Have a good Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

It was wild yesterday, the wind blowing a gale.. my favourite kind of weather :) Show you some of that weather tomorrow, but on such a dull wintry day it was a delight to come across this vibrant and also appropriate, wind blown hair, mural, a collaboration by Konfucius and Art By Destroy who's work you have seen here many times. There is so much construction going on around Perth these days it's kind of cool that it is softened by colour and beauty like this. Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

'Until you dig a hole, you plant a tree,
you water it and you make it survive,
you haven't done a thing. You are just talking. . Wangari Maathai.
Last week was all about man made architecture, thought it would make a change to show the magnificence of nature's architecture.. who doesn't love to sit and dream under the shade of a beautiful tree on a warm sunny day. Wishing you a happy and peaceful Sunday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. All trees in Kings Park..

If you've been reading about Perth here for a while you will know how much I 💙 St Georges Terrace. The terrace, running parallel with the Swan River is the heart of Perth's CBD, the architecture an eclectic mix of heritage nestled between modern skyscrapers. It's where you will unexpectedly come across a window like this filled with fabulous vintage lunch boxes and reflections of life on the terrace. Nice one Lunchbox, such a cool window display. Was hard to choose which lunchboxes to highlight, settled for the original line-up of Australia's iconic rock band AC/DC, bet that was a big seller in the 70's and the ever glamorous Marilyn Monroe. Do you have memories of a favourite lunchbox, or like me, was it waaay too long ago to remember :) Happy weekend, take care and stay safe..

At the bottom of Mount St, last two posts, crossing the bridge over the freeway and into the city. I don't hate the brand new Woodside building above, it's more curvaceous than the square lines of the old Woodside Plaza centre of the pic. When I downloaded the shots I took that day I was amazed at how many of them this building appeared in without me noticing at the time! Haven't had a chance to edit all pics taken that day so, above heading into the city and below crossing back up to Kings Park, the in-between two hours will follow 😉 Happy Friday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. the skies have been blue all week, hard to believe that it's the middle of winter.. it's about to change, grey skies ahead!

The walk down tree lined Mount Street from Kings Park into the city is such a pretty walk.. coming back up is a wee bit of a puff :) From the Art Deco Miami apartments below at the top of the street, to the fabulous apartments I posted yesterday, there are many gorgeous apartment blocks, some classic others more modernistic..
Towards the city end of Mount Street the Riverview On Mount Street is an excellent location for visitors to walk to Kings Park and to the city.. haven't read a bad review yet, what review would you give them Andrew? Hopefully you have fond memories of your trip to Perth :) Bit of city architecture to come, so different from this leafy green tree lined street.. Happy Thursday, stay safe..
