Each Sunday River posts her Sunday Selections, a display of photos she hasn't otherwise used in her blog. My Sunday Selections are photos I get rid of when I start to get an overflow, a backlog.
Always reaching for the sky, a third storey has been added to this old city building. While it suits the building, it is noticeably different from the lower storeys.
Casper the Friendly Ghost? Dunno. Seen in a city lane.
I was having coffee in Albert Park when I noticed Combi Garage across the side street. Beside the actual garage is a fake grassed staircase and then the cafe. Very cool.
Three buskers dancing, and they were rather good from what I saw from my passing tram.
The salvias and begonias are back again this year. They are quite labour intensive to maintain. No expense spared in front of Melbourne Town Hall.
The MacPherson Robertson Fountain. I've taken a few photos of it over the years but never a good one. One day....
The Stanford Fountain off Spring Street, designed and carved by William Stanford, who spent more of his life in gaol than out.
I am not liking a Qantas plane flying near the Highrise. We never see them. Why was this one an exception?
We don't actually see the sun set, just the results of the sun setting.
Becalmed yachts in Port Phillip Bay.
An exhibition of posters of trams in the old Treasury Buildings. The trams were in service in the 1980s and 90s and were hand painted by local artists. A couple created offence, one being painted all over and having the words Mother Knows written in places on the bodywork. It did not last long on the tracks. Another had an image of what looked like a Japanese flag. The Returned & Services League took exception to that one and it was altered. The bottom one left was done by Mirka Mora, who interestingly, I heard the other day, bankrolled Unchain St Kilda to the tune of $250,000. Unchain was a protest group set up to stop an inappropriate development at the St Kilda Triangle site. They were successful and some of the members were successfully elected to council and existing councillors were booted out by the electors.
