Blowing bubbles

I went out geocaching yesterday and came across this painted on the side of a building in Montrose.

Apologies for missing a few days. Got the man flu!

Early morning ballooning

Just got back from my early morning run when I spotted two of these drifting past me. Looked so nice and peaceful up there.

An interesting sculpture outside our building. It represents the Earth and the plants that give life to her. It was covered in weeds and overgrown until last week but now looks much better.

Hawthorn mosaic

Another amazing mosaic that I spotted on a sidewalk in Hawthorn today. This shot is actually a composite of 5 shots stitched together, so the quality isn't great. I will post the 5 originals at a later date.

Urban Art

This "Urban Apartment" used to be a display in Melbourne. It has now been removed, but it was quite eye catching!

Optimistic Melbourners

Not sure that the Yarra has been this high in many years considering we are in a drought with strict water restrictions!
