Melbourne Photo a Day: Week 15

26 May

Day 99: Point Ormond Hill

Point Ormond Hill

A morning run from St Kilda to Brighton is always worth it when there is brunch waiting at the other end, and the run back was needed to work it off again. This is Point Ormond Hill in Elwood and the view to the City is pretty special. Continue reading

Day 92: Giving Back

Breast Cancer ribbons

I was up and out very, very early on Sunday morning for a spot of volunteering for National Breast Cancer Foundation.  We sold a bundle of these ribbons so my 5am alarm was worth it afterall. Continue reading

Day 22: Funday Sundays

Mordialloc Food & Wine Festival

Sunday, March 2: A gloriously sunny day was enjoyed with some fizz and food at the Mordialloc Food and Wine Festival.  The paella was delicious, the champers was cold, the music was ace, and fun was had by all.  We had live music from Eugene Hideaway Bridges, Blue Shaddy, and George & Noriko.  I certainly haven’t come across Japanese style blues before but it’s a surprising winner.

Day 23: A Hard Day at the Office

A balcony with a view

Monday, March 3: I needed to catch up on some homework and prep for this week’s classes but it’s not hard to spend a full day working when this is your ‘office’.

Day 24: Outback

Another balcony with a view

Tuesday, March 4: I’ve shared the amazing beach view at the front of the apartment a few times now but I love the view at the view at the back just as much.  As I was up early for a swim I took this snap of the sun rising over the CBD.  Beautiful.

Day 25: Reading Room

La Trobe Reading Room

Wednesday, March 5: I love the State Library of Victoria and it has become my regular Wednesday hangout – decent free wifi, comfy chairs, powerpoints, and beautiful rooms.  This is one of the most impressive, the La Trobe Reading Room viewed from the Dome Galleries.

Day 26: A sure fire ticket to A&E?

Kite Boarding

Thursday, March 6: I’ve booked a 2 hour kite boarding lesson for next week.  One thing is for sure, I won’t be looking that happy or relaxed on my board.

Day 27: Hipster town

Chapel Street photo booth

Friday, March 7: You know you’re in hipster town when there’s a black and white photo booth, so here’s an appropriately filtered photo.

Day 28: Weekend treats

Brighton Sea Baths

Saturday, March 8: Simply a very special friend, some very productive shopping and a very delicious wine with a view. A very good day all in all.

Day 15: Sand between my toes

sketching on the beach

Sunday, February 23: Lazy days are extra easy when you live opposite the beach. Me, my flip flops and my sketch pad spent the day lazing around, soaking up the sun and watching the world go by. #Lush. Continue reading
