a totally predictable post

Now, I'm not going to claim to be a fashion expert here.  I've just pulled some photos/ dresses that jumped out at me.  Enjoy :)

Laura Linney... isn't she lovely?

Nicole Kidman - I do think that "Our Nic" is one of the most beautiful women on the planet.  And that dress!! And the diamonds!! just... wow.  Can I borrow that to get married in?
Plus, she and Keith are very cute together.

There were a number of unfortunate dress choices I could point out, and one or two "What was she (or he) thinking" moments, but it's all been said, so I'll stick to just this this one:
Jennifer Hudson, taking out the "So near, but yet so far" category.  It's not a dress I would choose, but she could have looked great.  Honey, next time, please just make sure your dress fits you before leaving the house.  It's all we ask.

As we all know, there were a number of baby bumps on show at the Oscars this year, but Jessica Alba was the standout for me.  I lovelovelove that colour!  The dress is pretty and flowing, and she has that pregnant radiance about her.  Overall, I think she looks fantastic.

I just adore this pic of George Clooney and his girlfriend Sarah Larson.  I'm not sure exactly what it is; I suppose its that this is such a candid shot, and yet there is no question that they both absolutely belong on that red carpet.  She's beautiful, he's suave and sexy - they just own it!

And lastly, in the "Only a supermodel could pull this off" category, is Heidi Klum.  It's hardly the most outrageous dress ever seen at the Oscars, but there's not a lot of women who could look this great in a dress like that.  Heidi totally pulls it off, despite the slightly dubious accessorising.

Food is much easier to photograph

So, here's what I was going to show off today:

An easy and pretty salad, inspired by the idea of a 'chop salad' - with credit to Jamie Oliver.  It was followed by a simple roast, making a great dinner.

But when I opened up iPhoto, I discovered my half-forgotten photos from the final stage of the Tour Down Under, and I thought - "Hey, I should post them."
But then I realised that, to be honest, it's a bunch of mostly rather ordinary photos:

Only slightly redeemed by some better ones like these:

So someone remind me why I take the camera??

moving through the ether

I'm in love.

Maybe in that pretty veriegated  green bamboo?  Mmm yum.
