I like seeing the outline of old buildings on newer buildings. Extra good if there is the outline of a chimney. Strange, the site has been like this for awhile and I had not noticed.
Our friend in Japan gave us this plant years ago. When we moved from our house, we gave it to a friend. At some point we decided we would like back and he happily returned it. It needs little water and thrives in the heat.
Not so this ornamental chilli. R bought it for $8 instead of a bunch of flowers. It lasted a little longer than a bunch of flowers, but not much. It is so rootbound, the pot cannot retain any water.
A Crepe Myrtle at an office building nearby. I am not so keen on the colour of the flowers, but the tree is a good shape.
The camera did not do a bad job capturing these balloons at a distance against the rising sun.
Come quickly, R shouted as a balloon drifted past the Highrise at a distance of a few metres away. I was too slow, but it wasn't far away when I snapped.
The RAAF wastes money by flying The Roulettes over the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.
The RAAF wasting even more money by flying an F18 over the Grand Prix, although it is ever so loud and exciting.
An outrage has been perpetrated at So Cross Station, perhaps better known as Southern Cross Station, even better known as Spencer Street Station. What is down the back from these nasty track suit pants and shapeless tops that clearly will not contain a decent set of bosoms.
It is terribly difficult to photograph. I found from my reading that there used to be a viewing platform. I managed to stick the lens of my camera through the arm hole of a brassier and catch a little of the scene.
I shoved aside a rack of jockstraps and got the end of it. Half of it is one shop and the other half in another. Its relegation is an absolute disgrace. The mural was unveiled in 1978 after five years of work by the artist. It was in storage for a year or so while redevelopment of the station was underway and after a good clean was resited in 2007 with a viewing platform reached by stairs or a lift.
All that is gone now. It is stuck down the back of a couple of shops and very hard to see as an overall work. It is a shameful way to treat such art. I understand it belongs to the State Government and it is the responsible authority.
