According to on-line dictionaries, candescent can mean

giving off light; bright or shining.

I  think my first two photos… 

capture that definition.

Algid…feels the cold. 

I don’t know if the saying ‘….

shivering like whippet on a frosty morning

is used in other parts of the world to express

how cold one feels or how cold someone looks.


Fairly straight forward.

     However, this angular building,

which has always caused controversy

 in Melbourne’s Federation Square,

is due to be wrecked soon if the government has its way.

An Apple store will replace it.

Not sure what would be worse.

I kind of like the current structure.

It’s different.

 Auricomous….having golden hair; yellow-haired. 

Where else to look at the beach?

      Or at a wedding which also just happened to be on a beach.

The festive season generally refers to Christmas, and…

      these sights are generally seen during the festive season.

  1. You have left me with my mouth open so much so that the other fantastic examples fade into the background. Why are they getting rid of it. I thought it was a wonderful building and when you add the symbolism to the whole of Federation Square it would be llike losing a state or part of our national heritage. Apple is not going to be able to replace it but I guess they have large sums of money.


    • I think the last line regarding ‘….large sums of money…’ sums up the whole discussion. We had to find the Apple Store while in London. It certainly was not located just outside Buckingham Palace. Rather across the other side of town…or so it seemed after a half hour on the subway and several hundred metres walk.

      AND there may be a building not facing Flinders St which is the target of the wreckers ball.
