Please enjoy these 10 pics I've just taken whilst walking around the streets of Frankston CBD this afternoon. Larger full scale photos will be on our fb page very soon. These outstanding works of street art are part of this week's @thebigpicturefest . As an illustrator myself, I am blown away at the talent, the imagination and colours that now grace these walls permanently! Very proud of my city right now! I've enjoyed watching each piece come together this week. Thank you to the artists that have come to our city. - Tanya
Girl from Hamar tribe at the Turmi market in very south of Ethiopia. All the women were strikingly beautiful. Apart from the obligatory mobile phones (and discovery of alcohol by the men!) nothing much has changed in their culture in centuries. Women rarely cover there chest, they do ALL the manual work including fetching huge tanks of water or 25kg bags of food of their backs, for kilometres. The men carry rifles and tend their cattle and plan yet another wife. Tourism has certainly reached the Omo Valley, “you photo, you photo” being a constant .... for a small price. This girl seemed happy to pose and there’s always a howl of laughter when they see themselves after 😊
I got an email from the cannabis dispensary! I was offered and accepted an entry level position with a 30-day Introductory period; if I’m a good fit at the end of that they’ll offer me a permanent position in a department well suited. 🎉
They’re able to give me shifts that work with my good health hours ( #fibromyalgia ), which is such a blessing. It’s a little bit longer than I’m usually out functioning but high temps are on the horizon so I expect to be able “to people,” as I call it, for longer very soon. I’m so verrry excited. And also a bit nervous to see how my bod handles it, it’s a lot more physical activity than working on a computer, even if during the right hours. But who knows, maybe it’ll help. Please send good health juju my way!
📸: A couple pics from my lovely afternoon yesterday. How amazing is this mural?? (Man oh man do I miss painting!)
