Icon #1 Mr Whippy

An Australian beach side institution.
Shot in St Kilda at night.

I’m early in my HDR journey. I wouldn’t normally be so ‘wild’ in my settings but I was after a semi cartoon look.

It seems appropriate because I always see Mr Whippy vans with childlike wonder…and a strange rumbling in my tummy.

It makes me smile :D

If you like this, you’ll love my Australian Beaches Calendar!!

You can get this shot and 11 other beautiful beach shots for just $30 :)

G’day all, my name is Melinda but my mates call me Mel, so feel free. I live by the beach in Elwood, Victoria, Australia. I contribute to a few charities as a Photojournalist, namely HEAL Africa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Any of my Africa stuff’s profits go to them. So far the sales have bought 7 operations and heaps more so thanks for everyone’s support. I also take a mean beach shot (well try to).

    There is definitely something magical about Mr Whippe!!! Just can’t get Greensleeves out of my head now.

    The real tragedy of the story is that Mr Whippy told me off for taking the shot. My childhood dreams were shattered until I realise as you point out Anne he was actually Mr Whippe and not Mr Whippy. Ha ha!! Fraud…
