Photographing Public Art Challenge #8

Public Art in Melbourne c2014

This week I decided to feature photos that I took in Melbourne. I can’t believe it was nearly seven years ago now. I took these on my last day in Melbourne. I had a couple of hours to spare before I needed to go to the airport. It was a nice day and I went for a massively long walk along the Yarra. I love it when I get a chance to do a walk purely for photography.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.


  1. You had a beautiful day to take pictures, and I don’t know which one I like best. I love the first one, sparkly, modern, beautiful sky. I also love the goofy one that looks like a painted saguaro cactus without needles. The giraffe is super cute, too. Great choices for this week’s PPAC. 🙂
