Gertrude Street blogged and a beautiful new blog discovered

I came across the gorgeous blog of Melbournienne Lucy Feagins.  She has done a great job blogging Gertrude St.  The beautiful photo of Amor y Locura above is hers.  I find so few blogs that I really want to read these days, but this is one of them.

White shoed man robs Smith St shop

A 1 metre 83 centimetres tall man with white shoes and an afro stood outside a Smith St clothes shop for 2 hours last night and then went in and demanded cash.

Why this was reported in the Sydney Morning Herald is a mystery.
