Took a stroll along down St Kilda way today...for you non-locals St Kilda is one the inner bayside suburbs, and tends to drag a few visitors in on a warm weekend....

to let the dog have a dip...


or get their photo taken on St Kilda pier


before they walk to the kiosk


and check out the views


interestingly the breakwater behind the kiosk has become home to a colony of fairy penguins, but you will only see them at dawn and dusk when they head out and come back from fishing.

anyway people do have a cup whilst enjoying the view


and maybe go for a boat ride


and see if Frances is in


to join them a Luna Park


or a browse through the market on the Esplanade


where the stallholders


and customers


try to reach agreement


and send every one home happy but poor


couple more at http://rafael.zenfolio.com/p746695607
Hope you enjoyed my morning, I sure did.

Rafael

A very nice series Rafael. It surely captures the spirit ofyour weekend excursion. I've always wanted to go to Australia, Frances's owner/operator willhelp mehasten my decision.:-)

Nice series of shots Rafael. I sure like the looks of the sun and blue sky, i think I need a one home there and one here so i can split the year and have summer most of the time. All I need is $$$$.

Beautiful series, and I also don't know about the rowboat, but woud take a trip with Frances anytime. I also like the candid shots. I think I could really enjoy your country. From what I have seen from you and Fred, (who seems not to post anymore) it is a beautiful country. However, I do understand the interior is barren.

Thanks Emmanuel, Ted and Jerry. Glad you liked them. I too wanted to meet the owner of Frances just to get the story for the painting. I also wanted some story on the rowboat but it just sat there.

It is interesting to see what the other hemisphere is looking. I kinda like winter, but then I suppose our winters do not involve 20 feet of snow so I am a little spoilt.

Jerry rather than barren I would say arid. I am guessing a bit here but something like 90% of the population would be within 200 Kilomteres of the coast. Not much rainfall through the middle, but there is plenty of life, and when there is rain and the rivers run and the lakes fill there is an explosion of life for a year or so. Beautiful places to visit, unfortunately pre my digital days so I have no examples to give you.

I have not seen anything from Fred for a while, perhaps he has been busy recently.
