Bee a Friend
They give us honey. Without them no flower would be pollinated. They make it possible to grow and harvest our food. Thank you Apis mellifera. For information about urban beekeeping look at http://www.theurbanbeehive.com.au http://www.thebeevangelist.com.au

Ode to Bill Eggleston
One day I had a revelation when I discovered the photographic work of Bill Eggleston, an American photographer. He possess an eye and a sensibility which gleams beauty in every corner of one’s ordinary world. His work is truly significant. I thank him.
A simple still life
In July 2010 Shiftazine shifted its world view and spent the month in the ancient lands of Crete. The Sun and the water were constant in their gifts of beauty. But what I really loved the most in spending time there was the opportunity to observe the motion of the astral bodies_ the Sun, the Moon and the stars. It sounds glib but these are our orginial and formative wonderments. When you are immersed in the urban landscape you become detached from these heavenly bodies_these things of beauty, of dreams, of joy.
On the side of the animal
“We’re always on the side of the animal that’s being chased. We always seem to be on the side of the rabbit or the fox and not on the side of the hounds.” These pretty things were found in the shop window of Ici et La.
Just like magic: old becomes new again
Don’t run from colour
Of late there has been a steady emergence of fluoro coloured bags, shoes, nail polish, sunglasses peppering the city streets. I like it.
