October 6, 2012 – Beautiful light

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.


September 8, 2012 – Black mountain & suburbs

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.

September 1, 2012 – At the zoo

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.

August 25, 2012 – Alannah Hill window

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.

August 18, 2012 – Street light


I like the darkness, mystery and composition of this shot.

August 11, 2012 – Face on the wall

More cool street art & some random tagging.

August 4, 2012 – Skeleton tiles

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.

For those interested in reading more about the use of the Mexican Day of the Dead imagery used at Señoritas here is an informative post from the WordPress blog Black Calavera: The Skull Project.
