Snap shot!

It occurred to me about two weeks ago that I hadn't taken a photograph with my iphone for...months. I've been trying to get back into the habit of snapping some shots of my everyday surroundings, which mostly occur on my walk to yoga.

This weekend, I went back to Inspector Climate's childhood home in Gippsland. It coincided with a yearly tradition of a mother's day parade. I've been to everyone the town has ever done, which is impressive because neither Inspector Climate nor his sister can boast the same.

Here are some pictures from the parade:

(Why yes, those are women dressed as Marge Simpson on lawn mowers).




Someone tried to tell me recently that autumn in Melbourne's eastern suburbs looks like the foliage we get in New England. To say I scoffed is an understatement.


I was trying to get a picture of Inspector Climate sleeping, but instead...I give you this. You're welcome.




How was your weekend?

  9. Scoff away, my friend. Those leaves are no New England autumn...especially if that flower picture was taken at nearly the same time!

    Loved the picture sharing! :)

  12. lol why in the world were there Marges on lawnmowers? I am slightly confused, but that's okay. I'm sure I've seen stranger things in parades.

    I somehow doubt that autumn in australia is even remotely similar to autumn in New England.

  17. Love those roses! Beautiful! Marge on a mower! Now I have seen it all! And I get why you scoffed! New England is soooo hands down gorgeous in the fall...nothing like it!!!

  18. That parade looks quirky and amazing.

    Someday I'm going to see New England in its full glory. For now I think that Autumn is a 10 second interlude between 100 degrees and 6 feet of snow.

  19. I have to try incredibly hard to get a shot like your last one. My iphone doesn't take good pictures! Okay, maybe it is a user error...

    Have I already asked where in NE you are from?

      I always thought my iphone didn't take good pictures, but the more I used it the better I got at it.
