Guess what I did today?

We visited the Tutankhamun exhibition at the Melbourne museum this afternoon, which was pretty fabulous, in case you're wondering. Before we left, we wandered through the rainforest exhibition (my favourite) and then did a quick dash through the Melbourne exhibition (of course, saying a quick hello to Phar Lap while we were there).

On the way to and from the museum, I made use of my phone's camera to capture a glimpse of my city.


It's funny how your home town can look so different through a camera lens. Or when you actually stop to LOOK at things, instead of rushing past on your way to somewhere.

Now I want to go back to Melbourne. It's been years since I was there last.

Don't come in July, Deb - you really wouldn't like it. ;)
