Ceiling light at a cafe in Hampton. I haven’t the foggiest on what the name of the cafe was, so I can’t give my usual link or review. I went for a tour down to Hampton with a friend to find some op shop bargains. The only person in our family who scored anything from the outing was Amelia.
Back to the photo… the light has a beautiful art-deco feel doesn’t it.
Almost as iconic as Parliament House and Lake Burley Griffin. Black Mountain Tower (appropriately called a hill on Wikipedia), lurks in the distance beyond suburban Canberra.
I am running waaaaaaay behind on posting my photo-a-day. We had a wonderful day at the zoo basking in the early springtime sunshine.
For those who are not familiar with Alannah Hill’s designs – they are exceedingly girly and ultra feminine. The current window display at their Chapel St store is simply gorgeous with all these fresh spring flowers suspended in glass jars.
I like the darkness, mystery and composition of this shot.
More cool street art & some random tagging.
If you want an “it” restaurant in Melbourne it almost certainly needs to be a Mexican one. Salsas and Mad Mex have the tex-mex covered but restaurants like Mamasita and Señoritas step it up a bit and offer more sophisticated Mexican fare. I have never been able to get a table at Mamasita (I’ve got a baby – when I get a babysitter – time is money!) but Saturday night we tried the latter where you can book a table in advance. The decor was fantastic (as above in the toilets) and the restaurant had a great vibe and the food was good, but I don’t really get the love affair with Mexican cuisine – it really didn’t floor me.
