Decided to get out of town while Melbourne goes horse crazy… to another big town. Go figure. Something to do with frequent flyer points and leaving things to the last minute, again.

Good to be here though, where there’s a sense of distance and contour that’s lacking in flat old Melbourne, bless her. Tourists of Circular Quay aside, it does seem somewhat quiet here though, surprisingly. Perhaps they’ve moved to Melbourne…

10 out of 10 to Sydneysiders for last night’s Halloween efforts. 70 percent out and about were elaborately and colourfully costumed, with full makeup, and often bewigged. Largely unrelated to the general theme of ghosts and witches on the whole, which was oddly comforting and confusing at the same time. At one point I found myself in a venue with a large number of hens nights. Or was it just more Halloween make-believe? I didn’t stick around to ask. 🙂

Nearly carted off by a security guard for taking photos in a back alley of The Rocks near midnight. Police state this country we live in, police state.

Large amounts of walking today, after the Brett Whiteley Studio, culminating at the Royal Botanic Gardens where bats have taken up residence in large numbers. Contrary to popular belief they do wake up during the day. So furry and cute, kind of like winged foxes, but small.

Very happy to recommend my temporary abode The Russell, conveniently located a stone’s throw from Circular Quay and delightfully old fashioned. Kind of makes me feel like I’m in France.

    Hi Ebony,

    Yep, like seeing your photographs and seeing a piece of the world. Flags are going good except slow the last few months. Not a great economy right now.
