Brighten up a grey winter morning and take in the Graf Art as you stroll along Chapel Street, Windsor. Of course it doesn’t have to be the morning, anytime during the day will do. But the in-your-face colours gives a me lift on a grey morning.
The corner of McIlwrick and Chapel Streets (at Tarlo and [...]

My first visit to Shakarhari, the vegetarian restaurant at 201/203 Faraday Street in Carlton, was a few years ago.

The Windsor end of Chapel Street is know as the funky end of Chapel Street, Prahran To me it is the fun end. I often pass Womango and I can never resist the window. It’s a ’stop and stare and stare some more and chat to your friend’ sort of window. It’s a collectors paradise.
