Last weekend we went camping in the Grampians in Victoria, Australia. I spent a lot of time following Mae and her friend Ash around. The dads also spent a fair bit of time slowly strolling and following the kids. Such … Continue reading
A few weeks ago I posted about the meerkats at the Melbourne Zoo (see here). It won’t surprise you to hear that when we visited the meerkats we also visited a number of other animals. This animal photography is hard work! I still have some practice to do but I am sure we have many more trips to the zoo in-store in the next few years (and maybe another batch of photos next week).

We have a membership to the Melbourne zoo and I can categorically say that it is worth the money. Like many (most?) kids Mae has a short attention span, and still needs a midday nap, so a 2 hour visit on a frequent basis works well for us.
Mae has a few favorites at the zoo including the zebras and the giraffes. But we also share a common love – the meerkat. Such a social, cooperative species. I love it! I especially adore the guard on the look out (and he/she makes for a great photo…).
Mae and I do disagree about one thing though, she adamantly believes that meerkats say “meow”!
If you are from Melbourne you may have read about the street art in Paris in the paper over the weekend. It said that there are over 1000 space invader mosaics on the walls of Paris. Wow! We saw many but I doubt it came anywhere near 1000… here is a selection of them.
This is a follow on from last weeks post on the street art of Paris which you can see here.Pin It
The metro in Paris is not really made for prams. There are a lot of stairs and very few lifts. This meant we spent hours and hours wandering through the streets of Paris in May. A great benefit of this was that we managed to stumble across heaps of great street art. So much so that I think this post will come in two parts.
What do you think? Pretty impressive and funny?Pin It
Paris affords so many amazing photo opportunities.
From the gorgeous cafes, to the crazy street art (there will be another post on that), to the icons of Paris – every where you go, you can find an opportunity to snap.
I absolutely loved visiting Paris in May. It is one of those cities that you can visit again, and again, and again.Pin It
There quite a few things that the Portuguese do incredibly well. This includes: 1) Sardines on the grill. 2) Portuguese tarts. 3) Tiles. Everywhere we went we saw amazing tiles, even on the funicular. Not all the tiles were in great condition but they … Continue reading
We are back from our trip to Europe and I can confirm it was a complete success! Okay, maybe not complete success. There were some trying times (think small child screaming her head off in silent museum and embarrassed parents … Continue reading
Commissioned street art is on the rise. So popular it even made an article in The Age this week. There is a house not far from us that has makes me smile every time I walk past. This weekend I … Continue reading
This afternoon we spent the afternoon eating and drinking in the sunshine in our friend’s backyard. It was fabulous. I want to enjoy every sunny day before winter comes. I couldn’t help but poke around the backyard and snap a few photos of their great plant life. I hope that we have a few more of these great days before winter comes.Pin It
