After a couple of months of valiant service, the tube gave a final “pfffft” this morning and squeezed out the last of its black nectar. Vale Vegemite!
Home again on a Friday night, ready to greet June, Stubby and the start of the weekend. (I also called Mum on the occasion of her 70th birthday!)
Birthday celebration #6: My team at work generously treated me to lunch for my birthday. The get together had to be cancelled a couple of times, but today we made it to Wilds Eggs at Westport Village. Jen wasn’t able to join us unfortunately, but rest of our team — Josh (our intern), Melissa, Kristi, Irene and Courtnay — enjoyed a nice meal and a bit of a break from work.
As I was filling my glass at the water dispenser at work this morning, I noticed the embossed letters through the water on the other side of the water bottle. I fill my glass a couple of times a day and have never noticed this before, and so I figured this discovery was meant to be — so voila, my subject for today’s photo!
Another atmospheric shot. I was struck by the dramatic contrast between the bright sunlight on the trees in the parking lot at work and the dark threatening sky behind them.
Recognize this? It’s the McDonald’s arches reaching into a blue sky. I was on the way to work this morning, already running a few minutes late, but there was something about seeing the yellow against the blue that I just had to make a small detour to get this shot. (The “old photo” effect produced the cloud-like colorings here.) I have to say that I’ve never noticed the notches in the arches before — are they on all versions of the logo? I only go to McDonalds once in a blue moon, but I’ll have to pay more attention next time.
I saw this building on Bardstown Road on the way to the Baxter Theater to see “The Artist” (great movie btw). The owners are obviously proud of their Highlands location, and everything that that area of the city represents.
