The Eclipse

Half way there. With a little cloud in the foreground.

Totality with a blood moon.

Proof positive...

...I am a nerd.
And what's more a "literature" nerd, with a fair shake at science, art and computer nerdiness!

Thursday night at the "Homemade Pasta and Pizza" night.

The cannelloni that I made (quite nice it was too).

The teacher and me .

Making Raviolini (not mine). But I think I might have a go next week.

Sydney on a quiet Monday Night

Near Chinatown. You could chuck a rock down Hay Street and not hit anyone.
Near the Haymarket in Sydney. I had a nice Hiyashi (cold noodles) with chicken and tartare sauce at Ramen Kan.

Off to Sunny Sydney...

...for work of course. Up at 4am to catch the red eye special out for Monday and Tuesday in Sydney. Still foggy and dark as we left.

The Waterhouse Art Prize

Went to the Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize private viewing.

Some interesting pieces there (clockwise from top left):
"Tasmanian Wedgetail Eagle" by Belinda Kurczok.
"Brad was Too Busy to Notice" by Sharon Raj. I liked this one a lot. I picked the Lichtenstein style straight away. It was only afterwards when I checked on it that I found this was a new representation of Lichtenstein's "Drowning Girl".
"Radiolaria (Thalassicolla Delagica)" by Megan Wilford. This one was in the Sculpture and Objects category and was made of fine glass beads and thread, very fine work. Possibly my favourite although I liked many of the works on display (I gave this one my public choice vote).
And finally, "Double Drummer" by Phil Suter. This impressive moth earned the first prize in the Paintings category.
