You’d be excused for thinking this might be an image typical from Melbourne’s Winter … but like a lot of Australia at the moment, nothing is ‘typical’ about the weather conditions! At time of writing, it’s the middle of January 2011, usually one of our hottest driest months and more often than not, on bush-fire alert! Yet, we’ve been experiencing a lot of wet humid weather, more akin to our northern states!! :-/

… it’s been a very strange Summer, Australia wide …

    along with the story, Ell, good photo-journalism. Most excellent reflections, and nice choice of clothing for the model on the left (shoes and skirt).

  • Thanks so much Geof :o))
    The flippy frilly flowing skirt caught the attention initially as she went by, stripey shoes a welcome ‘reflection’ bonus!! :-D
