Red at night, shepherds delight

I saw that there was going to be a beautiful sunset and so rushed out with the camera. My camera battery actually went flat shortly after this so I was blessed to get this shot in time.

Stormy stormy high

Last week the weather was amazing and as happens every year we got sucked in to thinking that summer was on the way. The last few days have been a reminder that there's still many more cold days to come before the sun.

Federation Square - I love these lamps that were hanging in the entrance.

Wisteria

This beautiful wisteria is blooming outside my back door and everyone who has visited my house lately has commented on it.

Time for a beverage

I actually took this shot in Seattle almost a year ago. It's pumpkin beer from a local brewery there. Some friends and I had gone to Seattle to see Bon Iver and before the gig we went for a few beers. Being around Halloween time they were serving pumpkin beer and may I say it was delicious! It's Friday folks, go out and grab yourself a beer.

Love Thursday

Melbourne is known for eating out. We have so many restaurants representing cuisine from all over the world. We're really lucky. This is one of my favourites. Pellegrini's has been in Melbourne for decades and it remains unchanged. You can still pop in grab a quick pasta and a coffee and sit at the bar. Sometimes the simple things really are the best, I love this place.

Pondering

Recently I asked my friends to vote on my photos as I plan to make some of them into greeting cards. This one was surprisingly popular. I guess we all like to stare off into the clouds once in a while.

Two daisies

Today was a long day at work and although I didn't really feel like coming home and working on the computer again, seeing these daisies made me smile and re-ignited my passion for photography and reminded me why I'm doing this blog.

Green appreciation

I love this park. It's not far from my house and I'm looking forward to spending more time here once the spring warms up and the summer arrives.

Make a wish

When I was a child, whenever I would find these I would pick them and blow the seeds so they flew away. I used to call them fairies and I would always make a wish as I blew on it. Make wish today.....

The promise of a fruitful summer

Yesterday I was out in the back garden and noticed that not only is the fig tree sprouting new leaves but there are the first signs of fruit as well.

Friday I'm in love

It's the end of another working week and I'm really looking forward to this weekend. I've got loads of fun on and plan to enjoy some quality time with friends I haven't seen in ages. I actually took this photo a few weeks ago. The blue of the night sky is my favourite colour in the world.

Love Thursday

In the tradition of a few other blogs that I follow, I'm going to jump on the Love Thursday bandwagon. I saw this on a wall the other day and it made me smile. Happy Love Thursday.

The end of the day

Walking home I took a detour through the local park just as the sun was dipping behind the houses.....magic.

The lunch rush

This is a great little cafe in the city. It's always packed full of people at lunchtime but you can grab a quick coffee from the window here. I love this little kiosk window for watching the staff busy at work while I wait for a coffee.

Spring has sprung

Today the sun was shining and it was gorgeous. The blossoms have started to come out lately. Spring is in the air!

A drive in the hills

I took a drive in the hills near by the beach house where I was staying - this view back to the sea was just breath taking and I had to pull over to get a shot.

Rest & Relaxation



This weekend I head down to the beach for a little rest and relaxation. I took a long walk on Saturday with my camera. This was one of my favourite shots.

Riverland

I took this photo a few weeks ago when some friends and I went for a drink after the Community Cup (http://communitycup.org.au/). This is a great bar down by the Yarra River in the heart of the city but I just love how the colours came out in this shot.

The Forum


Melbourne has many great live music venues, but I must say that this is one of my favourites. The Forum is an old theatre and it's an amazing place to see bands. I've seen many great ones here including Death Cab For Cutie, The Hives, Oasis, Arcade Fire to name a few. Around the stage there are all these amazing carved statues and the roof is the blue of the night sky.

Where to start? ....home.


I've been meaning to start this photo blog ever since I returned from living in Vancouver. It's taken a few months but I'm here and where better to start than home. This is the view of the Melbourne skyline that I see on a regular basis. I love it....it's home.
