A short walk and a song to start the weekend.Do you remember last week I did this short walk in Westgarth - no more than 100 metres with my little Canon pocket camera? It was titled, "Do you see what I see" and followed with a clip of that song by Melbourne group, Hunters and Collectors.
This week I stopped in Albert Park on Beaconsfield Parade and did the same thing.
It tests you to look for something to photograph in a small distance, but this area on a sunny arvo just begs to be photographed. This time our title song is actually an old blues song, "Who do you love." I always remember the line as, "Take a little walk with me Arlene" somewhere in the lyrics. That's our post title.
|Strangely this arrow points to where I parked my car for my 100 metre walk for this post. The streets of Albert Park hide some fascinating architecture from Melbourne's early heritage. It deserves more time than just a short walk.|
|All along Beaconsfield Parade there is a continuous bike and walking path. At the time I stopped the car, it was about midday and there were very few people enjoying a top day. What a shame!|

|Shelter from the sun|
|The sign says it all|
|Barrels on the deck - fisherman and yachties enjoy the occasional beer.|
|Albert Park Pier|
|I have no idea what this is all about but its interesting. I wonder if this old pier was part of the two storey building in the earlier black and white photo.|

I remember many years ago that I discovered Tom Rush on some compilation album that I bought in some Melbourne back lane obscure record shop - he wrote some great original stuff that others recorded. This track although is an old blues cover yet it describes my walk today. Check out some other Tom Rush stuff.
Do you remember the lovely song "No Regrets" - yes, that's Tom's.
