Direct hits, one after another after another. I've never experienced such a sustained storm.

The newly installed gutters and downpipes have failed in the deluge. Yes, water is pouring in that bedroom window.

Fairfax Press advertising campaign poster. They are rather good. The same has been done in Melbourne, using our own old photos.


There wasn't a lot to see at Darling Harbour, and like Manly the day before because of the weather, it was reasonably quiet. We had some lunch and then walked across Pyrmont Bridge to the city.

I rather wish I had made the videos a little longer. Children love to run around the spiral in the warmer weather.

Bring them here because it is the right thing to do, it is the humane course of action, the current system is a huge waste of money, refugees shouldn't be used as political footballs, and Australia can stop being looked at as the country that shirks its responsibilities.
I visited the House of Dior exhibition that was staged recently at the National Gallery of Victoria. I'm not a fashionista nor do I have any particular knowledge about fashion but I enjoyed what was on display and I could appreciate that there was considerable art and skill on display.

By the end of it we’d had some pretty good laughs and actually really enjoyed it. It’s far from a favourite but it was definitely worth seeing. Even if you aren’t a fan of the rest of the film, Henry Cavill shirtless is worth a look and a drool as always but the one that flooded my basement was

It wasn't too  far to walk to the Chinese Gardens (correctly called Chinese Gardens of Friendship) at the bottom end of Darling Harbour. There really is not much to say about them except they are wonderful and would be nicer when seen in bloom and on a fine day. It wasn't. We had not seen the gardens since the 1990s and the site has matured very well. It opened in the year of Sydney's bicentennial, 1988.

I went walking in the rain, it was that sort of day

I asked if you’d buy it and I’m kind of assuming the answer was yes. Since comments still aren’t working I have to make these assumptions.

So… if you click here and head to my online store you can buy a 28 page digital download of (DON’T) LOOK featuring the gorgeous Chris Strafford. There are a whole heap of new images that you’ve never seen before. Hopefully enough to satisfy the thirsty appetites of my readers. If you buy it, I’d love your feedback which I know is a pain right now but head to the facebook page and let me know your thoughts. Any feedback will be used when I create more
