Sunday Selections

Joining in with Elephant's Child for Sunday Selections. I missed getting this post together to be published at 5am Sunday morning, so instead I have a cunning plan. I will post it at midnight and it can do for Monday's post too, which will still be Sunday for many.

No real theme at all, just a few loose photos cobbled together.

Interesting light as the sun was sinking unseen in the west.


This conflict lasted for a about a week before someone decided that cars coming together at right angles with both facing Give Way signs was a problem, and the signage was altered.


The entrance of the expensive apartment block across the road, Number 401 St Kilda Road.


I am not sure when I took these photos at Docklands, more specifically Victoria Harbour.



There are some people at least in the photo, quiet as it is. Now it would be dead quiet I should think.


Grace, we have the same problem at Victoria Harbour as you have at Elizabeth Quay.

  1. Nice photos of your environment. I always enjoy looking at them, because I doubt I'll ever travel to Australia.

  2. Nice colors in the top photo, and I like the flashy neon in the apartment building entrance. I'm never going to live in an apartment that fancy! LOL

    1. Steve, nor could we afford to live in such a place.

  3. Wow that's a fancy apartment entrance. I don't think I like it which is a good thing as I could never afford it.

    1. WWW, I expect you know what wanky architecture might mean.

  4. Loving your Sunday Selections - which show such a very different environment to where I live, though parts of my city are (or were pre pandemic) definitely tending towards highrise.

    1. EC, your city was certainly going upwards with an explosion of students. Maybe not so much now.

  5. I like the first photo with the golden buildings.

  6. The sunset photo is nice. I don't like the lighting in that apartment entrance and the entrance also seems too dark and rather gloomy. I wonder if they are planning to film horror movies in there?

    1. River, the apartment entrance is very stylish, but yes I agree with what you say.

  7. The harbour looks nice, but why so few boats? Back in Brighton, the authorities decided to build the marina about three miles out of town. What a shame, it would have been wonderful if they'd built it in a central spot; what's better than looking at flashy boats.

    1. I've just come across a whole load of big silver Aussie coins marked '20'. Is that 20 Dollars? i.e. about £10? If so, I'm rich.

    2. Cro, there is an area with lots of boats. As I saw, there was plenty of space in Brighton proper to build a marina. Hmm, coins marked 20. Could be sovereigns.

    3. Cro, are you sure they aren't twenty cent pieces?

  8. Lovely collection of photos.
    Very different that up market place with that neon.
    First photo is interesting, colours are good and it's extra nice to see trees to the right.

    1. Thanks Margaret. We are not short of trees here.

  9. The apartment entrance reminds me of a project I did at University on "painting with light." I should see if I have any of those prints.

    1. Travel, I don't really like the neon squiggle. I'd be interested to see what you come up with.

  10. Such a great way to see the scenery up close and personal. Better than the movies!(lol) Hugs, RO

    1. Sami, in the distance of the fourth photo you can see some boats. The numbers are very limited though.
