stepping stones, stumbling blocks...


pretty, soft autumn skies over Montalto vineyards at Red Hill...
In the foreground is a group sculpture - Ben Carroll's Stepping Stones, Stumbling Blocks.

life is littered
stepping stones and stumbling blocks
colour our moments


Believe it or not, the above photo was taken minutes after the first one...
- and the light and sky had changed...

golden goose...


Smiled when I saw that this particular Dromana garage sale had a special name...


a golden goose
can become more than
a fairy tale

Lou Lou...


just a drop of red in this photo, but a very important one.
This sculpture was sold last year almost as soon as it was exhibited at the Montalto vinyeards, Red Hill.

mask...


one of many sculptures scattered through the Montalto vineyards at Red Hill.
This is called Mask by Mike Nicholls and is based on a hand holding a mask.
It is in the form of a protective spirit and explores the theme of identity.
Each autumn, there is a competition at Montalto for a sculpture prize.
Some works are retained as part of the garden features.

what sky?


in recent days, it has been a little hard to find a sky of note...
This is a view of the Nepean Highway just outside Mornington...

Comfort Station


Frankston - gateway to the Mornington Peninsula - must be the only place that has this name for public toilets.
It was built in the early 1950's on the Nepean Highway - the main road through Frankston.
