As I stood gazing into yet another magical Adelaide sunset a lady came up to me exclaiming about how beautiful the sky was and how it reminded her of a sermon her priest gave about being grateful for God's sunsets.

As we stood there together I pointed out the amazingly delicate nuances of light and colour and then the transit of a jet whose trails twisted into a spiral of cloud and ice. 'Oh' she said, 'you have better eyes than mine' and her disinterest in what was actually unfolding in front of us was cast into palpable relief.

At that moment I understood how different our experience of this sunset really was.

It would have been nice if we could have seen the full lunar eclipse here in Adelaide tonight.

It was absolutely awesome that the moon was just beginning to re-emerge as it peeped above the eastern horizon of the Adelaide Hills flanked by the white tower of Mount Lofty Summit and it's adjacent peaks.

What am amazingly surreal moonrise. Made me feel like we were on someone else's planet.

I'm not sure whether to cite the smooth vocals of Elizabeth Rallis of local band 'Liquified Grooves' or the challenges of shooting into a bad light open window as a backdrop.

Frustration turned to play as I realised there's more than one way to deal with difficult light.

In the end I abandoned the bad light, settled back with a drink and enjoyed the music instead.

An incoming wave starts to build giving every clue it will deliver something more.

I time the moment, click, another few seconds then the shutter opens.

The surge rushes towards were I am standing and I jump back leaving the camera amid a swirl of salty white streaked water; shutter open.

As the water recedes I follow it back, camera high and dry above a drowned tripod.

Henley Square is one of the most universally inviting beach side public spaces along the Adelaide suburban coastline.

Sure there other others with more sand, more lawn, more sports, more nature or more space.

However, when it comes to putting a diverse variety of restaurants, bars, sports facilities, lawn and other public amenities as close to the water as possible without spoiling the feel of the beach then this space wins hands down.

Of course I'm going to make a claim like this. I am a local after all! ;-)

This magical mushroom appeared at the end of a wonderful evening with fantastic friends at Tiros Restaurant; Tafe's training restaurant at their Regency Park campus.

Full as we were, the saying holds true, there is always room for desert!

I never grow tired of messages on t-shirts.

When I see a frivolous remark, a bawdy comment, a nerdish in-joke or a deep insight brazenly displayed by someone in public I am reminded how important our diversity really is.

I am also reminded how important it is to celebrate my own.

... Now, what to wear tomorrow?! :-)

Has the DJ gone AWOL or just having a break?

In either case the Mac's queue is deep and should keep us going for as long as the DJ is offline.

Why does Action Man have such a grin on his face?

Why are his mates looking up laughing?
What are the Lady's prayers for?
Does anyone remember 'Tab'?

Some questions should be left unanswered ...

The streets were full of youths with green tops.

Every now and then they would form words, disperse and form new words again.

I've never seen scrabble played like this before.
