Graffiti in Melbourne

Melbourne has a reputation for graffiti and street art. Specific lane ways and surfaces appear set aside for covert artists. These walls are not cleared of work and over time they have been covered in vibrant and visually arresting artwork.

Early Mornings in the City

One of my favourite times to be out and about in a large city is the early morning, as the city slowly comes to life, and before the usual mass of people arrive.

Happy New Year

Wishing you a happy new year and all the best for the year to come.

Happy Christmas

Happy Christmas from Graham and me. I hope you have a wonderful day.

Farewells Have Begun

My work colleagues hosted a surprise farewell lunch for me this week, and gave me an amazing bunch of Australian native flowers and a bag of goodies that are difficult to find elsewhere in the world.

Christmas Show at Crown Casino

Oddly, Melbourne’s casino has a Christmas show aimed at young children. We caught the lunch time show along with crowds of tired parents and little ones. Australia has a strange relationship with gambling. I managed to film the entire show. You can watch it below.


Yesterday, we managed to capture some footage of the butterflies I mentioned in my previous post. The butterflies were clustering in doorways and windows, presumably attracted by the office lights.


The recent burst of the hot weather in Melbourne triggered an influx of beautiful butterflies. Over the last week they have fluttered around the city streets.

Night Market

The night market at Queen Victoria Market is more about entertainment that shopping, with food from around the world and live music.

Chalk on the Pavement

Having been moved on from City Square and the Treasury Gardens, the protesters have settled in Flagstaff Gardens. As part of their protest, chalk graffiti has appeared on the surrounding pavements and walls. I do not feel it is helping their cause.
