Uniqlo's display windows reflect their red glow into Lonsdale Street. Uniqlo's first store opened in Hiroshima Japan in 1984. Last year these windows belonged to Myer Melbourne. Myer's first store opened in Bendigo Victoria in 1900. The first Myer store in Melbourne opened in 1914 and the Lonsdale Street store pictured above was Myer's from the 1920's.
P.S. Uniqlo stands for Unique Clothing.

We found this "Lubritorium" at the rear of a shop in a side street just off Chapel Street Windsor. A very quirky and imaginative name don't you think? Various online dictionaries tell me that a "Lubritorium" is a place where motor vehicles were lubricated. Here the conversation is lubricated. Cheers J.

We found this street art in Prahran, crammed into a corner of a back alley car park. Although I wished that the car had parked somewhere else it does seem to accentuate the lack of space conveyed in the art and provides proportion to appreciated it's size. It is signed Kaff-eine. A google search lead me to a web site called "kaffeinestreetartist". It certainly looks like an original. Photographed by Mrs J.

Blairgowrie is on the Mornington Peninsula only 87 kilometres south of Melbourne. An easy drive in about 90 minutes and a great place for a day trip. For calm waters head to the front beach which faces Port Phillip Bay and for crashing waves head to the back beach which faces Bass Strait.
Thanks to Cinzia for this photograph.
