This week’s theme is ”Covered” and here is a member of the Evzones (one of elite Greek presidential guards) covered by a shade at the Greek Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Athens – one of my favourite places in Athens.

Photo Hunt: Greasy

This week’s theme is ”Greasy” and this meal from a favourite el cheapo dining place in Auckland (“Kiwi Country”) should taste greasy with that deep-fried chicken, but it never ever does.  One of the things I miss from working in Auckland city centre is picking up the occasional lunch from here.  It’s located in a little side street, downstairs below street level, and is a real little goldmine – my Mum keeps up the family tradition now and occasionally visits with a dear family friend, and of course we pop in ourselves when I’m visiting Auckland.  My mouth is salivating already at that chicken dipped in chilli sauce and that succulent crispy salad – yum!

Photo Hunt: Wrong

This week’s theme is ”Wrong” and you can call me a philistine if you want, but I just don’t ‘get’ a lot of contemporary art … like this example at the McClelland Gallery in Frankston, Victoria. Quite frankly it just reminds me of pile of intestines, and that to me is just plain “wrong” (I have no idea what it was supposed to be, but I’m sure it has a lot of meaning to someone who is more cultured than I am).

This week’s theme is ”One” – here is one beautiful piece of sculpture at the Australian War Memorial, Canberra, with one solitary pigeon sitting on his shoulder.

I don’t think I’ve written about our trip through Canberra as yet – I really should do that, as the trip to the Australian War Memorial really affected me and we ended up spending over 3 hours there and still not seeing everything!
