I caught the bus from Paddington into the city on Saturday and visited the South Bank Markets. I didn't intend to spend any money, but found some things I'd like to buy - perhaps in a few weeks time.

The grounds of South Bank, despite construction going on almost all around were neat, clean and the gardens looking very sprightly. There are some new shops/bars/restaurants since my last visit there. I had lunch (fish and chips) which did not impress me. Perhaps it was the guilt of eating such high calorie food..........
One item that I really enjoyed and I must go back and get some photos - was of one of the stalls in the market, full of fabulous photographs by Ben Messina. (see photograph above).
The photographs are amazing - I cannot find the words to describe them. Just standing in the little marquee at South Bank looking at the wondrous images of the Australian landscape is inspiring - makes you want to go and see them in real life. He is an amazing photographer.
