Joining with River and others for Sunday Selections. This week it is the usual hodge podge of photos taken here there and everywhere.
This area is within some circular entrance and exit ramps to a road tunnel below. It was once just native plants, but I think these shapes make it much more interesting. The photo was taken from Sturt Street. South Melbourne.
Who likes beige? Not me. This is a vast improvement.
It is cleverly done, by painting black on the horizontal facings and obviously, white on the vertical. Note even the rooftop is getting a black up, as I took the photo.
Oh, it does get hot quickly. 15 minutes and it has reached over 300C/600F.
To make some interest and attractiveness to a new development, someone thought to buy some plants in pots. Pity someone didn't think to water them.
The old building on the other side of Swanston Street was severely mistreated by architects. But I like what was done here.
A little hard to see but there four police cars parked next to the tram. A tweet came to my phone from the tram company; Outbound St Kilda Road services are delayed at Toorak Road due to a disruptive passenger.
The bare topped disruptive passenger was led away by our finest and hopefully charged with disruption.
Pretty flower very protected by spiky leaves.
Friday morning as I was getting ready for work at about 6, there was an almighty crash. It was dark and the camera did a better job than my eyes did at the time. It took me a while to make out, but a truck had tipped on its side, I expect rounding the corner from Toorak Road too fast. Of course some of you overseas people perhaps think the accident happened because everyone is driving on the wrong side of the road. The last of it was being cleaned up when came home for lunch at 11.30. I think they had separated the van part from the cabin and chassis, or maybe it just all fell apart.
