Pretty things offscreen

The more of my time that is sucked up by websites, email, television and mobile phones, the more I appreciate solid physical beauty.  Here are some pictures of pretty things I have seen offscreen…

What do you get if you cross a duck with a rainbow?

Earlier in the year I was at Point Lonsdale in Victoria. I saw this crazy rainbow/aviator duck at a small fairground. It was such a cold grey day that these colours stood out like neon lights.

I saw this on a city wall in Melbourne. I believe these well-dressed animals would be singing along to the Pet Shop Boys version of ‘Always on my mind’. It made me smile…

Climbing roses

During the Biennale of Sydney, I visited Cockatoo Island to see some art. This wallpaper wasn’t actually an artists’s work, but it looked wonderful anyway.

Pinkness and light

At the Biennale, I loved this room by Melbourne artist Rosslynd Piggott. (There’s a picture of the room in the article here.) I stood alone and contemplated fogotten memory,  remembered experience and transient loveliness… until a group of older ladies in sensible shoes stomped in to shelter from the rain.
