May 2. Day 122. Revealing itself

Sometimes it is right there in front of you but you just can't see it. This is an afflication that particularly seems to affect that males of my family who quite frankly are masters of the "Boy Look". "Mum, have you seen my ... bag, phone, hat?" "Dear (well we'll go with Dear), have we got any milk, cheese, bread?" Almost invariably the truth is I haven't seen said object because I haven't beening looking for it but when I do it's actually not that hard to find. The phone cunningly hidden on the phone charger. The hat cunningly hidden on the head. The cheese secreted in the dairy tray of the fridge, that sort of thing. Ah, the Boy Look defined by the American Dictionary of Slang as "The way a boy looks for lost items ineffectively (opposite of girl look)".
Yep, it can be right in front of you and you just can't see it because you are not looking hard enough.
This morning, however, even with a proper Girl Look it was impossible to see the University of Queensland from my back deck. The view is one of the things that makes my home such a beautiful place to live. This morning under a blanket of fog that took just a little time to reveal itself. But when the sun finally burned off the clouds I am pretty sure even the males wouldn't miss UQ. I'd ask them if I could find my phone to send them a text .....


  1. Great series of pics, nicely framed. How long did it take?

    1. That was over the period of about an hour
