Intersection Of Burke And Swanston Streets, 5.30am October 18 2019

This is what the middle of Melbourne looks like at 5.30am, early on a mid-spring Friday morning.

This week I’ve walked the length of most of the major and ‘little’ streets.

Chapel Street

Rachel and I walked from South Yarra Station to Windsor Station down Chapel Street this afternoon.

She was somewhat overwhelmed by the number of quality op shops. And, of course the Chapel Street Bazaar.

The Tan Track In Melbourne

At Margaret’s suggestion we walked around The Tan Track in Melbourne today.
The path goes around the Melbourne Botanic Gardens.
It was particularly tiring watching the people run past us heading up the hill on Anderson Street.

Having A Captain Cook At Fitzroy Gardens

A stroll in the green of Fitzroy Gardens alongside the city of Melbourne.

They apparently don’t reset their sundial for daylight saving. This was taken at 11.44.

Urban Art

I walked past this piece of contemporary art in Sydney this morning.

Amusingly, it seems someone is concerned that passers (or maybe drivers) may be at risk of not realizing what they’re seeing, so it comes complete with advisory signs.

The signs also help by letting you know that the art is over, presumably so that if you see any other cars crushed by a giant rock you’ll try to help the passengers in the vehicle.

‘End Artwork’ is a sign that could be a stand alone social commentary.

Obligatory Location Photo

When one photo lets everyone know where you are.

And for those of you despairing that I have no appreciation for nature.

Watching The World

Sitting on the veranda watching the world go by.

Have I ever mentioned that I love cities?

No vanilla slice, (or scrolls), but a very acceptable florentine.
