gutted…

Occasionally random events offer a representation of life events sent to test us. A Sunday morning recently I woke at 5.15am to hear a neighbour say “It’s on fire!”. We marvelled in our nightclothes out in the cold as an abandoned van was engulfed outside our building. The next morning taking these photos I was struck by how a fire so quickly put out could thoroughly vaporize most of the interior. Somewhere, however, someone will make the most of the remaining metal husk and turn it into something useful again. And that’s the take home message of today’s post. Despite how blasted out and pulled to shreds we can feel by traumatic events there is a way forward, we can be renewed, and, although initially seemingly impossible, the silver linings and priceless gifts are revealed in time.

where cars go to die…

What is it about the country and everyone needing to collect dead cars? :-/

need more than one colour of course New Age

Where: Birchip, and many other country towns around the world!

rust…

Where: the mouth of the Yarra River

What: the way this retaining wall looks, it seems the mouth of the Yarra River might be a bit wider in the near future

petrol combustion…

Petrolhead nirvana: hardcore custom petrol go carts, vintage cars, fast custom street cars. Or, more correctly, glorious shiny things.

Many thanks to C, K, E, B and especially R for their hospitality at B&M Refinishers, home of the world’s most powerful street car, Craig Munro’s Tryhrd (as in you’ll have to try damn hard to beat it!).

surface detail…

The folk at Colonial First State tore out the heart of the old Myer and David Jones stores between Little Bourke and Lonsdale in order to replace them with their idea of how retail should be done. As per with fashion, some of the outside is much more important than what was on the inside. I wonder if the graffiti is heritage listed too?

wabi-sabi alla casa dell’amore…

As per usual, the devil’s in the detail…
