In the city last night to meet Aimee after work for dinner at the Twilight Hawkers Markets in Forrest Place. Come in early she said, it gets busy.. oh really, just a bit! By the time I took these shots from afar I had devoured a bellini from Monte's Grill and a creme brûlé from Just Creme Brulees.. parfait! To my American readers I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Happy weekend, take care and stay safe..

'You can't win unless you learn how to lose'.
Snapped a couple of quick shots yesterday of the two above shooting hoops as we were leaving Elizabeth Quay heading back to the CBD. Although there was a difference in age the older gent was holding his own.. made me think of the expression 'it ain't over till the fat lady sings' :) That's the Esplanade behind, a mixture of old and new architecture. Can you guess which I prefer, especially as the 1920's Art Deco facade was preserved, check out some interior shots here.. fabulous! Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

The last time you saw the lighthouse at Hillarys Boat Harbour it looked like this. Now without wrapping and scaffolding it is back to its pristine white and yellow, looking splendid under the blue sky.. loved that the yacht sailed quietly into the shot just as I clicked! Described as a small lighthouse in a big marina it stands at 24m high with a viewing platform, seen below, at 5m.. that's plenty high enough for moi to catch the view. I hope the lighthouse remains tag free for many years to come. Into the city later today to take some street shots, it's been a while :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

The Japanese say you have three faces, the first face you show the world, the second face you show your closest friends and family, the third face, the truest, you never show anyone..
I have passed and looked at this many face-faceted :) three metre high sculpture sitting under the tall eucalyptus trees on the corner of Loftus and Vincent St. so often without stopping. When we passed there a few days ago and I saw that he is now sporting a pretty fancy crocheted beanie and scarf I felt it was a sign that this was the time! 'Beseech' aka the big blue head, was created by Ken Sealy for the Town of Vincent. The artist's statement 'Beseech watches and waits, activating the space by creating tension through expectation and anticipation.' The BBH might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I enjoy seeing him when driving by. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe...

Just around the corner from last weeks fabulous mural and most appropriately painted on the Subiaco Post Office during the Paint Subi Project by Dominican born American artist Evoca1. The mural depicting 'a young postal worker delivering parcels alongside a black swan' has a distinctly WA feel to it. Loved the whimsical touch of paper planes flying alongside too :) Subi just got a much needed boost! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

Inevitable! I turn my back for a minute and the city goes all Christmassy :) Thankfully Aimee was there to capture some of the highlights. Instead of the usual Christmas parade this year the Christmas Lights Trail can be followed each night right up until 25th December. Here just a few of the photos Aimee captured on Friday night during the first night debut. Hoping to take our Sydney famille to see the lights when they arrive for Christmas. How was your weekend? Mine was super hectic.. but in a good way! Happy Monday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. merci beaucoup Aimee for allowing me to use your photos!

This is a bit of a cheat reflection :) it's not in Perth.. yet! We were lucky enough to be in Sydney last month for Sculpture by the Sea on Bondi Beach. The sculpture here titled 'Swirling Surround' by NSW artist B. Jane Cowie looked amazing. I'm sure it will look equally fabulous reflecting under the hot blue sky during Sculpture by the Sea on Cottesloe Beach in February 2018. Hope you have a happy and colourful weekend, take care and stay safe...
