Here, Now


This mural by Numskull went up over September for Art & About. I'd been looking at it from the bus stop for about a month, but today I finally bothered to cross the road for a good shot of it. You can read about it here.

Sydneysiders, how insane was that weather last night? We had a massive storm here, with flooding and cyclone strength winds. It snowed in the Blue Mountains where, last year this time, there had been raging bushfires. Lighting struck the Sydney Tower and blacked it out. I was sort of enjoying it, all cosied up in bed with a new book on my Kindle (Gone Girl), but it would have been terrible to be on the road or public transport. Hope everyone got through unscathed!

  3. I'm reading Gone Girl too. I'm hopeless and only generally catch onto great things when movies get made about them. I think we're kindred spirits. Oh and storms are fun, I heard it was a good one! (I work in insurance, we're always on weather watch for claims haha!)

  5. I love the art.

    The weather hasn't been great here in England either. The rain got really heavy as I was coming home on the motorway!

  6. I definitely need to figure out where this mural is now, I keep seeing pictures of it! How are you finding Gone Girl by the way? I read it recently in a mad dash before I was set to see the movie, haha :)

    1. It's on the corner of Park and Pitt streets, best viewed from the corner with the McDonald's! Gone Girl is okay so far, the writing is a bit pretentious I'm finding but the story's good.

  7. My favourite kind of weather while I'm bed! How are you finding Gone Girl? If you enjoy Gillian Flynn's style, Sharp Objects is my favourite of hers!

  11. I must be living under a rock because I haven't see that mural before! It looks heaps cute though (not sure if cute is the right word but that's what I call everything these days haha). The weather on Tuesday was insane!!! I'm just glad I got home before all the mayhem started. I'm glad it's all cleared up though.
