waiting for signs...

waiting for signs
I used to wait for a sign, she said, before I did anything. Then one night I had a dream & an angel in black tights came to me & said, you can start any time now, & then I asked is this a sign? & the angel started laughing & I woke up. Now, I think the whole world is filled with signs, but if there’s no laughter, I know they’re not for me.

Phoenix Rising

Amazing sign and graphics on this car parked in Dromana

Each side of the car advertises Phoenix Rising
- Harley tours of the Greater Melbourne area, the Mornington Peninsula,
the Great Ocean Road and the Yarra Valley.

Shoreham Cafe Aura Store

Cute little general store in the village of Shoreham on the Westernport Bay side of the Mornington Peninsula.
Sadly, it is now closed and the little village just has a post office.

The Giddy Bullfrog

This must be one of the oddest names for a gallery and tea room that I have ever seen.
The attraction is located off the main road at Red Hill and quite a way down a dirt road.
But once there, the beauty of the countryside and ambience of the dining experience make it all worthwhile.

Crunchie Point

Even though the sign says Crunchie,
most websites refer to this area at Point Leo as Crunchy Point, or, more fondly, Crunchies.
It is a popular surfing area on the Westernport Bay side of the Mornington Peninsula.

Wingback Books

Sign for a little shop that used to be in Dromana
Adore the wing part of the graphic - extending beyond the ellipse element of the sign.

my keys are...

Fun but perhaps serious sign on the back windscreen of a car
parked in the Dromana Hub carpark on the Mornington Peninsula.

sail framed sign...

First explorers to land in the Dromana area of the Mornington Peninsula
are remembered in this sail framed sculpture.
The memorial was erected in 2002
to commemorate the bi-centenary of the British discovery of Port Phillip by Flinders, Bowen & Murray.

This sign is at the entrance to small wetlands at Balnarring on the Mornington Peninsula.
Balnarring Primary School cares for this area as part of the curriculum.
Balbirooroo is a tribal language Koori name for Ibis.

Welcome to Sign Songlines

For a long time now, I have been fascinated by signs
- not by the message alone, but by the style and the colour and even the context.
The sign above is in the main street of Flinders on Westernport Bay.
There is no obvious name for the business - other than the address.
It is the stained glass studio of David Wright
- renowned for his glass work round Melbourne
(his art is held in the National Gallery of Australia collections)
and he has contributed his work to Australian film productions.
He has taught and lectured throughout Australia and overseas.
His website is HERE
