Autumn field trip

One of the best things about my job is that I get to spend time with really interesting people, sometimes in fabulous outdoor locations.

I spent this past weekend in Victoria's south-west with nearly 60 of my post-grad students; the weather was dreamy and we explored all kinds of local landscapes.

 Coastal vegetation - a pleasing juxtaposition of lumpy and spiky forms

We saw lots of race horses out for an early morning swim

 The sea mists roll away....

 The wetlands in the crater of Tower Hill (an ancient volcano) have been replenished by recent rains.

 A jetstream sliced through the sky at dusk, as we were bathed in golden light.

My husband and dogs came along too - Gus loved the beach as always


Windcatching at Yambuk

More turbines! Nice.

War effort

I recently found the historical photo blog Old Picture of the Day, which has countless fascinating photos and interesting stories to match. Here are some pictures from WWII:

How can these women look so good in head scarves even when wearing goggles, when I struggle to get the look right with makeup and mirrors and the whole shebang?!

These army nurses look as though they've stepped off the set of 'Dr. Who'.

This baby was born in the US and therefore an American citizen, but at the same time, she was also born a prisoner.

Oh, speaking of fabulous street style, are you familiar with the blog Advanced Style? Here are some gems captured by Ari on the streets of New York:

Street style for April

It's been a little while since my last street-style post, so I thought I'd share these beautifully inspiring looks with you today:
